My playlist

I have a playlist on my ipod called "Jack." This would lead one to believe that it's songs for Jack - kids songs, lullabies, etc. In fact, it is a list of songs that will always make me think of the months when I was pregnant with him. I have similar playlists for each summer, and other times in my life, dating back to 1999. It's amazing how certain songs can take me back to a particular time in my life almost instantly!

Here's the playlist for my life right now. These are the songs that will make me think of January 2009, and probably all that will happen this winter. THey're not necessarily new songs, but just songs on my playlist right now.

I wonder what my playlist says about me . . .

Rock & Roll
Eric Hutchinson
Sounds Like This
Kyle and I first heard this guy on one of those "New Artist Showcase" things at the end of a VH1 show. Within 30 seconds, Kyle was looking him up on itunes because we both liked his sound so much. I like to say he's a little like Michael Buble singing Jason Mraz. And we all know that any song that has "na na na na's" in it will make you feel good.

Lisa Loeb & Nine Stories
The Very Best of Lisa Loeb

I'm Yours
Jason Mraz
We Sing. We Dance. We Steal Things.
If you haven't heard this song, you haven't listened to a radio station for more than 5 minutes.

Hold On
KT Tunstall
Drastic Fantastic

You Are the Best Thing
Ray LaMontagne
Gossip in the Grain
I'm glad Kyle made my listen past the first 10 seconds. Thanks to Pandora Radio for introducing us to this one.

All I Need
Matt Kearney
Nothing Left to Lose

Never Let Go
David Crowder Band

The Unwinding Cable Car

OK, It's Alright with Me
Eric Hutchinson
Sounds Like This
I think this is the more popular of the two songs by this guy that I have on the list. But I like the other one better.

You Found Me
The Fray

Bethany Dillon
Bethany Dillon

Wish You Well
Thousand Foot Krutch
The Flame in All of Us

"Fall For You" by Secondhand Serenade. I fell in love with it the FIRST time I heard it, and it will forever now remind me of late nights painting the new house before we moved in this fall. Every time I hear it, I crank it up and sing at the top of my lungs. You should listen to it if you haven't. It's really the voice of the singer and the tune of the song that pulled me in. Oh, and I do love that Jason Mraz. :)
