Yes, YES!!!!! OMG I am laughing so hard!! Among others, "Alchemy Live" by Dire Straits is coming with us as well as "Brothers in Arms". Mark Knopfler's voice can put me in a trance and I really can zone out to "Telegraph Road" on Alchemy Live. When I was in Jr high and HS I used to listen to Brothers in Arms to fall asleep, especially side 2.
Augs I feel like I could hug you right now
In early labor my doula and I are planning on rocking out together to 80s music because we both obviously were the girls in school who could sing along to every song in the mirror, using our hairbrushes as a microphone. I just need to find a good 80s CD.
My DP and I both love Dar Williams, so quite possibly some Dar (but not the songs that make me bawl, like "The One Who Knows" or "February" which is my personal classic break-up song), some Indigo Girls, some Dixie Chicks, etc... eta: dude! yeah! darkblue! Sarah McLachlan!!
In my first pregnancy, one of my biggest cravings was not for food but for Billy Joel??? I made DP go out and buy his 4-CD best of set which was no small chunk of change, but it was like a physical NEED. So some of that too...?
Beyond that, I might have to crank some raucous ska, lots of CAKE, Brother Ali and my absolutely favorite German hip-hop group Die Fantastischen Vier just to torture my DP because she will have to give in to my music choices for once. Tee hee! (Horrible, aren't I?)
