Kids here know the Cupid Shuffle and many of the older songs that have come back in movies and video games. The elementary school I do each year has a sock hop theme so I have a ton of music to pick from. I didn't save my request sheet, but BY FAR, the most requested was Gangnam Style.
Also:
Call Me Maybe
Baby (J. Beiber)

Must play for elementary kids: Gummy Bear Song

You'll probably get away with playing it 2 or 3 times.

It is on iTunes.

Cotton Eye Joe

Kids were requesting I Like Candy.

Lolipop by The Chordettes works good with the little ones.

Songs from the movies they like work good.
Shrek: All Star
Cars: Life is a Highway, Rascal Flatts
Lion King: Hakuna Matata
Toy Story: You've Got A Friend In Me

Etc.

Sponge Bob Theme song - It's short but sweet.

I have a couple of discs that are all nursery rhymes and stuff like Farmer In The Dell, Old MacDonald, Ring around the rosie, This old man, BINGO. Each song is really short but the kids seem to connect with it.

Justin Bieber, Boyfriend - I think is what all the girls are singing now.

Get on the mic. get them in a circle and get them to do Hokey Pokey, Chicken Dance, YMCA.
I swear I expend more energy doing these kind of parties more than anything else.

Do Not Play Niki Minaj, Starships

I DJed my son's elementary school walk a thon a couple weeks ago...principal wouldn't allow "Respect" by Aretha due to "unappropriate" and "controversial" content (her word was "unappropriate"-- I think it should've been "inappropriate")...but she wanted "Moves Like Jagger" and "any Katy Perry!" I have sense decided to leave the PTO and not work for school functions...
Good luck!

Wow - because your son's school has a principal who has is lacking in simple vocabulary AND who is so misdirected in her song choices, please rethink leaving the PTO ... sounds like your son's school could really use you on board!
