Lillie's Playlist

I like music. A lot.

Now, can I listen to a song and name the artist, title, release date, favorite food of the drummer? Nope, not even close. That's what Google is for. But can I listen to a song and jam like it's nobodies business? You bet your butt I can. I mean, I dressed up in a mullet last weekend just to play guitar hero. (Which I totally recommend by the way!)

I'm a huge fan of musicals (Chicago, Grease, Hairspray, Rocky Horror, etc), country music, and pop tunes, which is what my iPod is continually being charged with. I love the way it makes you feel, especially those tunes that transport you back to a better time or a memory that you just love.
The band Everclear always takes me back to middle school. 
The song Who I Am reminds me of my sister. Every.single.time it comes on the radio I have to text her.
Aerosmith IS my mom. 

Music calms me. It helps me. Whenever I work out, music is what pushes me to that next level. Which is why I think it needs to be an essential part of Lillie's birth. Which is why I've started a Lillie's playlist that will be in effect during my delivery and probably afterwards. I haven't completely filled it up yet, but I'm excited to see what song she'll make her debut with. Something for the baby book, if you will. 

Listed below are just a *few* selections that it could be - 

  • Don't Stop Believing - Journey
  • I Touch Myself - The Divinyls
  • Crazy - Aerosmith
  • Oops! I Did It Again - Britney Spears
  • When You're Good to Mama - Chicago Soundtrack
  • So Much for the Afterglow - Everclear
I'll probably post the entire playlist at some point. Unless, I'm lucky enough to go into labor in the next 48 hours, then you're just out of luck there buddy. 

Also, if you have a suggestion that you think Ms Lillie Mae should be born into feel free to let me know. If it happens to be that one, you'll totally be in her baby book as the person who suggested her birth song!

"Welcome to My World" by Charlie Rich. I's an OLD country song, but the words are great and would be really appropriate. What do I get if I win?!?

I tried searching for it to listen and I found a song by Jim Reeves by the same title - is that the one you're talking about?

Save "Opps I Did It Again" for the second kiddo!

HAHA! That is the perfect idea!

"L O V E" - I like the Michael Buble version

I have the Natalie Cole version on there actually! But I listened to Michael Buble and I might have to download that one too, it's great! Thank you for the suggestion!
