I'm traveling to a french immersion program this summer for 5 weeks. Nothing but French everything is allowed...even music. Anyone have some recommendations for great french music (with lyrics)? I've listened to Yelle, and have exhausted my Carla Bruni playlist. All genres are welcomed, but I'd especially love some contemporary stuff!

I love 'Let it Go' and 'Defying Gravity'. What other songs are about rebellious spirits, personal epiphany and/or acceptance of their uniqueness?

I'm looking for more love songs with a specific theme - essentially, "You drive me fucking crazy and sometimes I want to throttle you and we're both kind of fucked up AND ALSO I love you more than anything and need you more than air and think you're the best person ever." [more inside]

I need a song suggestion (or 20ish) for how it feels at the end of a ridiculously over complicated project. Or maybe at the end of a marathon. Basically I'm looking for the perfect "YOU DID IT!" song.

I'm making a Summer Jamz 2k13 playlist for a few BBQs I'll be hosting this month, and I'm looking for more songs to add to the rotation. Despite my best efforts I'm a little out of both the indie/hipster loop and the R&B/rap/pop sensation loop, so I'm turning to you for help. [more inside]

Isley Brothers - Work to Do
Jay Z - 99 Problems
LL Cool J - Mama said knock you out
Beyonce - Run the World (girls)
David Bowie - Under Pressure
ODB - Got your money
Fugees - Killing me softly

I am looking for inspiring songs about being in Space, or Space Travel, or even just Science! in general. I want to make a playlist.
The only songs I can think of right now are Space Oddity and Rocketman, both of which are awesome songs but also completely depressing. I'm looking for songs that are more uplifting and inspirational.

I'm looking for mostly pre-2000s stuff. Not dancy necessarily, but very happy, poppy, stuff that you could dance in your seat to. So far I have;
Hall & Oates - You Make My Dreams Come True
Stevie Wonder - Signed Sealed Delivered
George Michael - Freedom
Cheesy is fine, if not encouraged.

Please help me thrill my 4 year old daughter with suggestions of songs that have the singer saying "Hey!" more than once.
She told us awhile back that she loves songs that have "Hey!" in them, so I want to make a playlist of "Hey!" songs. The "Hey!" should be punctuated and repeated at least once - preferably more than once. The songs don't have to be songs for children, but should be at least semi-appropriate for 4 year olds (i.e. profanity is out, but innuendo that they won't understand until they are much older is ok).
Some examples of stuff that we already have: "You've Got to Hide Your Love Away" by the Beatles, "She" by the Monkees, "Get Off Of My Cloud" by the Rolling Stones, a couple traditional Greek songs. Any genre or time period is fine!
ULTIMATE FOUR YEAR OLD HEY! PLAYLIST - GO!

Inspired by this thread
, from which I got Dan Mangan's Basket
, and Chocolate Genius' My Mom.
I'm composing a playlist as a mediation on my parents, and I wondered what other songs others thought of when they thought of Mom and Dad.

I need inspiration for a playlist - all songs about actors [OR by movie stars that don't normally sing]. So - Gorillaz - "Clint Eastwood", works well, as does Clint Eastwood - "I talk to the trees". I prefer songs about
the stars, but by
is acceptable too.

I am looking for songs that I can play LOUD and also have an epic flavor. I'm not a fan of metal -- I am a fan of show-tunes.
Looking for songs that compel one to turn the volume UP. Examples after the jump. [more inside]
