Bumble's Playlist

I've made a little playlist to play during the day. I usually sing along with these songs and it's my usual mis-match of songs, but I hope Bumble enjoys them. Seems to by the amount of movement I get. Of course, I could totally be misreading the signs and Bumble is actually "O my God would please stop!!!!", but I will think not for now. Here's my little playlist:

1. Baby I Love You - The Ramones (I've actually sung this to Bumble since we found out I was pregnant, so....before Bumble even had ears)
2. Here, There and Everywhere- The Beatles
3. Love Me Tender- Elvis
4. Over the Rainbow- Judy Garland
5. Real Love- The Beatles
6. Heartbeats- Jose Gonzalez
7. Baby Mine- Bette Middler (I wish I could just find the version they played in Dumbo, but no luck. Ah well....)
8. Love Is Like A Butterfly- Dolly Parton
9. Here Comes the Sun- The Beatles
10. The Rainbow Connection- Kermit the Frog
11. That's How Strong My Love Is- Otis Redding
12. Tonight You Belong to Me- Folk Uke
13. Clementine- Pink Martini
14. Hang On Little Tomato- Pink Martini (This was also one of my songs during those shaky first 12 weeks of pregnancy)
15. I'm Only Sleeping- The Beatles
16. And It Stoned Me- Van Morrison
17. Across the Universe- The Beatles
18. Farewell and Goodnight- Smashing Pumpkins

There are some other songs I really wanted to add, but they have somehow disappeared from my Itunes, which is quite worrisome. I can't decide if I want to take this playlist to have during labor, if I should make a whole nuther playlist for labor with songs that "pump me up", if you will. But those songs are very cheesy, like, "You're the Best Around" from the Karate Kid. We shall see.....

Okay, I'm glad to read that you also feel like "pump me up" songs are appropriate for a labor mix. Everyone's always putting on yoga music. Please! Here's a suggestion for your labor mix: "Mean Son of a Gun" as performed by Kitty, Daisy and Lewis.

PS Mmmm, Beatles. Of course Bumble is enjoying your mix!

Yeah, no yoga music here. I can't handle it and usually want to shoot the speakers, which makes getting a massage very awkward.
