Have a family dance party with this pop song playlist, perfect for your little ones

If you've ever experienced that cringey moment in the car when your kid asks what your favorite '90s beat is really talking about, this one's for you. As much as the latest radio hits seem to be full of sex, violence and more sex, there are some squeaky-clean pop tunes that are climbing the Billboard charts.

Adults love 'em — and your kids are bound to enjoy these totally appropriate pop hits on the way to school. (Bonus points for using this playlist for a family dance party to burn off some energy after school too.)

19. "Can’t Stop the Feeling" — Justin Timberlake

Everyone's going crazy for JT's latest 2016 hit because it really is that good (just give it a listen if you don't believe us). Parents are jamming to it, and kids love it too — which makes sense since it was created for the upcoming DreamWorks Trolls movie.

18. "Happy" — Pharrell Williams

Just a few years before JT, Pharrell dropped a similar crossover hit that you'd never guess came from a kids' movie. "Happy," from Despicable Me 2, was so popular that it was even nominated for an Oscar in 2014.

17. "Brave" — Sara Bareilles

Sara Bareilles has done it again — her recent hit is as catchy as it is inspiring. As you watch your kiddos learn the words and start to sing along, at least you'll know they're getting a great message out of the song.

16. "Call Me Maybe" — Carly Rae Jepsen

Admittedly, this song can be kind of annoying, but for some reason, Carly Rae Jepsen is like wholesome catnip for kids. Her 2012 smash hit is one that you might get secretly addicted to after you've heard it about one hundred times.

15. "Roar" — Katy Perry

This one might require some interpretive dance, but we're pretty sure that will only make your dance party all the better. Not all of Katy Perry's songs are kid-appropriate, but you're golden with this jam.
