Full Answer

Paul Simon’s 1986 album “Graceland” isn’t specifically directed at children, but the album’s lyrics feature almost no references to sex, drugs or violence. The album does address adult themes, such as current events and relationships, but nothing particularly questionable. “Graceland” offers positive narratives featuring uplifting messages and a generally upbeat outlook. Simon’s unique blend of African and American pop music makes “Graceland” one of his most popular albums.

The Beatles’ “1” is a greatest hits collection compiling all of the group's number one hits, including “Eleanor Rigby,” “She Loves You,” “Hey Jude,” “Yellow Submarine” and “Come Together.” While the songs contain occasional references to drugs and other adult themes, most are vague and unlikely to influence children. This collection serves as a good introduction to one of the most influential musical acts of the 20th century.

Disney’s “Frozen” soundtrack features all of the songs from the hit film, most of which stress the importance of love and optimism. The soundtrack features no harsh language and only vague references to adult themes, making it appropriate for young children.
