Hyrum Top 50

Over the last couple months, I've been making a note in our Windows Media Player when Hyrum spontaneously starts conducting the music. Sadly this doesn't include the music in the car he asks us to replay over and over again (mostly upbeat Christmas and the glory themes from Erich Kunzel's Ultimate Movie Collection). He's up to about 50 songs now on the WMP, so here is Hyrum's Top 50, with the Top 5 (asked for over and over again) in bold:

Hyrum tells me after his nap he would like to add two to the list:

Beethoven's Sonata 25, Movement I
Mendelssohn's Spring Song, his first pick from the Baby Einstein CD.
