Help me make the best 2010 summer mix ever...

...That will give a brief overview of pop hits from the last year or so that are (1) curse-word-free, (2) don't glorify the use of drugs and alcohol, and (3) don't have any sexually explicit material. Ideally the mix should be appropriate for a 4th to 6th grade classroom. I'm trying to veer toward hip-hop and R&B given the general snapshot of tastes from the school that I've had in the past few years. (Though they do have Tha Biebah Fevah at the moment.)

So far:

Justin Bieber f. Ludacris - Baby
Nicki Minaj - Your Love (Clean)
B.o.B. f. Bruno Mars - Nothin' on You
Big Boi f. Gucci Mane - Shine Blockas (Clean)
Janelle Monae f. Big Boi - Tightrope (Clean edit I made MY VERY SELF to edit out "ass crack")
Priscilla Renea - Lovesick
Vistoso Bosses NOT f. Soulja Boy - Delirious
Jessica Jarrell - Almost Love (24/7)
Young Money - Girl I Got You [the ONLY "clean" Young Money song in existence, a-thank you]
Dorrough - Ice Cream Paint Job (Clean)
Alicia Keys - Try Sleeping with a Broken Heart
Kelis - Acapella
B.o.B. f. Hayley Williams - Airplanes
Cymphonique - Lil' Miss Swaggar
Sade - Soldier of Love [not sure if I'm hitting the target audience here, but it's on the radio a lot]
Demi Lovato - Behind Enemy Lines
Erykah Badu - Window Seat
Michael Jackson - Earth Song [obligatory MJ "post-script"]

Thoughts? I have room for three or so more songs and could replace a couple, like dupe B.o.B. Toyed with stuff I feel might be just outside the target audience, like Lady GaGa and Selena Gomez (a lot of the kids like Disney generally). I tried something from the Drake album and almost hung myself it was so. Totally. Boring. He's seriously the biggest waste of space of all time (read: in recent memory).
