Suggestions for party music?

I'm helping with party ideas for an 11-year old girl. She is having an "enchanted forest" themed party. I automatically thought of Lorenna McKennit, but I am wondering if that would be too "adult"....? Or should we just leave it at the top-40 type stuff that she listens to now?

Any suggestions would be very helpful! Thanks much!

Response by poster: and i'm also even wondering if a party of 11-year olds are even going to notice what's on for music or not! :)

The only time in my life I was ever able to stomach Loreena McKennitt was when I was 11 (when my mom happened to be going through her Pure Moods phase). I think she'd be appropriate. You could also do the score from Lord of the Rings. I imagine there will be too much giggling/squealing/screaming for any background music to really be heard, anyway.

What about some of the music from The Chronicles of Narnia movies?

Avatar soundtrack, Enya, Deep Forest. Also, Ashley MacIsaac's Sleepy Maggie comes to my mind for some reason.

Bat for Lashes?

Joanna Newsom.

Definitely have the usual Top 40 stuff on reserve for when she or her friends decide this stuff is just too weird.
