I like lists. This includes song playlists. In spite of all the computer, cell phone, and satellite technology that’s out there, I still like to make mixed CDs. Often, those CDs have a theme to them. Therefore, I need themed playlists to make the CDs.
With Father’s Day coming up this Sunday, I’m already starting to hear ‘dad songs’ on the radio and the online/satellite providers I listen to. I’ll admit, I’m not really into Father’s Day (or Mother’s Day or Valentine’s Day for that matter) so I’m not planning on making a ‘dad CD’. But I thought I’d throw together some of the songs that would be on my Father’s Day CD if I were to make one. Maybe some of these will provide some inspiration for your own playlists, themed or otherwise.
Some notes first:
- I’m a newbie to blogging and haven’t yet figured out how to set up and embed audio stuff yet so this list will be just that, a list (except for the last one). Happy YouTubing / iTuning.
- Yes, some of them are sappy. A dose of sappy every now and then is good for the soul.
- No, you likely won’t recognize some songs. I didn’t either but discovered some great tunes in this eclectic mix.
