Multiplication songs wanted

Hmmm.... at ambertatge's request, I'm making a CD (actually, several). She teaches third grade, and they wanted songs about multiplication. As it turns out, I don't really have a lot of songs that teach math. Most of them are from Schoolhouse Rock. Song of those songs spill into the next CD. I've added some science songs, and some upbeat songs, but I'm still not amazingly satisfied with the first one (which may be all I get to before she goes. Here is the preliminary track listing for Amber: Mercury. (Amber: Venus will have the rest o the Schoolhouse Rock songs and any others I can find and Amber: Earth will have more Earth science and moon songs. I have a fair amount of Mars songs, even for 8-year-olds, and the Jupiter et al will be instrumentals.

But I turn to LJ Assembled: Any suggestions? Other songs? Deletions? General Discussion?
