Help me to impress my teen

Last week, I shared the music video That's What's Up
, by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, with my 15 year old and she fell in love with it. This week, daughter was assigned a project in her video production class to create an advertisement for the Sadie Hawkins dance at her high school. Inspired by the ES video, she's decided to recruit some youngsters from the on-campus preschool (where she is a volunteer) and film a short music video depicting a little girl asking a little boy to dance.

There will be lots of challenges in making this video (obtaining consent from parents, writing a tight script, filming the youngsters) - but the first challenge is choosing a song for the video. It should appeal to current high schoolers but be sweet and danceable. I suggested Call Me Maybe but that earned an eye roll for being too obvious and overdone. Please share your music suggestions and help me to regain my status as a reasonably cool mom.
