The three year old recomends...

Son and I listen to tunes in the car for the half hr trip from work / day care to home.
I load up the iPod with the recommendations iTunes suggests but he vetoes the songs after listening to the intros and a few seconds of the first verse or so.
The conversation goes something like this:
Son: "put the music on...put the music on...put the music on" X 50.
Dad: ShitAlrightSettelDownImDriving
Son: "put the music on...put the music on...put the music on" X 50.
Dad: puts the music on
Dad: "New songs or ones you like already?"
Son: "New ones."

- songs play -

Son: "No."
- next song -
Son: "No."
- next song -
Son: "No."
- next song -
Son: "No."
- next song -
Son: "More"
- song finishes -
Son: "Again please."
- song repeats -
Son: "Again please."
- song repeats this time he's humming the tune and asks about the words -
Son: "Again please."
- song repeats this time he's singing along complete with bopping head and facial expressions like he's squeezing lemons with his eyes when he hits the high notes -
Son: "No more. Next song please."
etc.

Based on these trips I now bring you three songs he recommends over the last week:

- Sequel out me some skinny love
- Howl out at the moon with furr
- then hit me with that magic beam Sandman

hi honey. Your son has good taste in music. I love that Mister Sandman video. I put it in my faves...

My son likes to listen to Lady Gaga's 'pokerface.' and he likes Pink too.

the kid's got good taste? ... except the sandman song seems like it could be used ironically in a mass slaying scene in a slasher film, or something.
