OMG!!! You have soooooo many of the same songs on your labor cd as I do! I'm going to have to make yet another cd, though, b/c I completely forgot about Jeff Buckley's Hallelujah! I LOVE that one!

Hmmmm...let me think...(I made three, one's a little more upbeat!)...Oh:

Wilco: Jesus, etc. & Reservations

Loose Fur(More Jeff Tweedy): Chinese Apple

Ben Harper(From the I Am Sam ST): Strawberry Fields

Ben Folds: Tiny Dancer, Narcolepsy & Rock This Bitch

Patsy Cline: Back In Baby's Arms

Bob Dylan: Forever Young

Lenny Kravitz: It Ain't Over Til It's Over & Just Be A Woman

Frank Sinatra: Under My Skin

Nina Simone...can't remember which one!

I am also bringing a few cd's that need no alterations, I like them in their entirety: Damien Rice *O*, Gillian Welch *Soul Journey* and Jim Donovan *Indigo*. Jim Donovan is/was the drummer for Rusted Root, Indigo is a very meditative drumming cd.

That's all I can think of!

I love Mother Nature's Son by the Beatles, but I can't find it on any CDs except the ones that cost over 25 dollars! Great tracks, mama. Would dig a copy if the price was right.

Bex80: Have you tried iTunes? You can get a song for 99cents there.

Were you interested in BabyKaoss' labor cd or mine? I'd be happy to burn a copy of mine for a mamma in need, just PM me your address!

Oh good god, talk about pregnancy brain! I totally read that and then posted my question like a dumbass anyway!! My brain has been eaten by my baby. I'm pretty sure he hotwired the placenta to steal brain cells!

peacefulmommy-I love ben harper's cover of Strawberry Fields! It's strange but I think Beatles songs are just good birthing songs! What's the deal?

I'm planning on putting the Ipod on random and seeing where it leads me. I always pictured going through transition listening to Dirty by Sonic Youth-but I don't think Finn would appreciate that very much...not to mention everyone else

ROFLMAO!!! Wow...that's a good one!

I'm the same way with Ben Folds *Rock This Bitch*...I'm going to be in transition when it comes on, I just know! Right about the time he says he wants to "Rock this motherf*#king beeeeatch"...hehehe. I've already apologized to my mother in advance for that one!

Peacefulmommy, I am LMFAO!! And Sarah too. I lose my train of thought in 2 seconds flat. Most of my coversations are me stuttering..."Uh, uh, What was I going to say? I can't remember. Dammit!"

Actually, I would take a copy of both or ya'll's CDs, peacefulmommy and babykaoss. I don't know how sacred they are to you, so if you don't want to I completely understand!

I have a random array of music, I posted many of the CDs on another thread, but I figured I could shre them here too?

Norah Jones-Feels Like Home, Come Away With Me
Wynton Marsalis-Standard Time Vol. 3
Fiona Apple-When The Pawn, Tidal
John Mayer-Room For Squares, Heavier Things
soundtrack to 'The Messiah'
Dave Matthews Band-Everyday, Under the Table and Dreaming, Crash
The Verve-Urban Hymns
Enya-A Day Without Rain
Adam Cates-Bread on Water
Shawn Colvin-A Few Small Repairs
The Cure-Galore
Indigo Girls-Swamp Ophelia, Rites of Passage
Sarah McLachlan-Solace, Surfacing
Joni Mitchell-Greatest Hits
sountrack to 'Mona Lisa Smile'
James Taylor-Greatest Hits
Edie Brickell-Shooting Rubberbands at the Stars

Wow, after typing that out it sure is a random bunch of music! I don't know what I'll be in the mood for, so I think that's why there's so much variety and quantity. I wonder if I'll even *want* music? It might piss me off, much like I thought I would *love* to be massaged in my last labor, but when I was in it, I couldn't stand to be touched.

Anyway! Enough about me.

We have Rhapsody so I am just creating different playlists to play on the laptop in the room. Kinda hard to imagine if I want rock out music or if I want calming, soothing stuff. Need to get on the ball and make both, I guess.

Thanks for the inspiration!!!

Bex80: PM me your address and I'll send you a copy! Sentimental value is high, but I'm always willing to help make another mamma's labor easier if I can!

Gunter: That's why I've made 3 different cds, plus stashed away a few others to take...I have NO IDEA what I'll be in the mood for!

bex80- i think that would be great, i'd love to share my cd w/ you.....you'll just have to wait until i'm not so pathetically broke that i can actually MAIL it to you.

mother nature's son is off the beatles White album which is probably why you can't find it for less than $25!!!!! i'm not surprised! and as far as Itunes, you won't be able to find any Beatles there unless its a cover version. Apple music has refused to release any Beatles tracks via MP3, so you can only legally purchase hard copies.

and I just had to chime in- i'm a HUUUGE Cure fan, although Galore was the first cd I ran into by them, it's now my least favorite..... You should check out "Faith", my personal favorite, or Seventeen Seconds, Pornography, or Disintegration. IMO those are the best albums!

Ahhhhh...didn't realize that about iTunes/Apple Music. I wonder if you could find it at the library?

Thanks mamas!!

I'm PMing you now, peacefulmommy. Sarah, no worries, I can relate! I was introduced to The Cure by my main squeeze in high school, though that album was Staring at the Sea. I haven't listened to them in a while. Sometimes I have to be in the mood. Not THE mood, but, you know what I mean. I will check out the other titles. And also the library!
