A Baby Shower Playlist

6 02 2010

I forgot to mention this in my previous post and I wanted to share it, even if only for posterity’s sake:

During the shower, I had a playlist going of 45 songs with the word ‘baby’ in the title. It made for great, appropriate background music, which I firmly believe is a must for any social gathering, no matter how big or small, to prevent occasional awkward silences. I’m often surprised at how many parties I go to that don’t have any music playing in the background. That’s like not adding sugar to your prized cookie recipe, people. Anyway, I didn’t stick to any particular genre with this playlist, but I did notably leave out “Baby, Baby” by Amy Grant and “Baby Got Back” by Sir Mix-A-Lot if only because they’re a little too obvious. (Then again, how Vanilla Ice made its way on the list while sidestepping the Too Obvious Award is beyond me. I blame pregnancy hormones.)
