Music for Wife -- Christmas Present?

My adult daughter wants to give mom a few dozen songs to load on mom's IPOD for Christmas (said IPOD is new and currently has NO songs on it....)

I'll paste the note my daughter sent me and hope some of you might help -- wife is 53 and not really a Disney fan -- so Disney tracks probably won't do it:

daughter's edited note:

Thought for Christmas I might get mom a few dozen tunes.

I remember most of the albums she has stashed away tend toward Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, Cat Stevens, Joni Mitchell, Judy Collins, Joan Baez and Dylan.

I think I can come up with enough of the above, but are there any new -- current artists that might mesh with someone of her age, taste? All I can come up with is Pink Martini....

I can't help specifically, but if you go into pandora & put in a couple of artists it will come up with other similar artists...

If she owns CDs, you can put them on the computer and then load them onto the ipod - you do not need to re-buy them.

You can also buy some new music from the same artists if she likes them.

Yeah, does she have no CD's? When I got my Ipod, I ran all my CDs through my computer, created a library of my music and downloaded it all onto my Ipod. I still buy a really good CD once in a while but I also have an Itunes account that loads onto my laptop and will download to my Ipod.

Mumford and Sons!!! Someone else suggested them. They are amazing!! Natasha Bedingfield, Alicia Keys. Cat Stevens, Elton John, David Bowie, Stones. A little of the Trios albums with Ronstadt,Parton and Emmylou. Does she like Rod Stewart? Throw in a few Sinatra. Willie Nelson. One or two Elvis for variety.
Keep the Faith!! Peace and Love!!!
