The Ultimate Mix CD Project

Listening to MusicIt’s that time of year again! I’m working on the mix cds I make for my mom and sister every year. Since 2007 I’ve made them for Christmas and it’s become one of their favorite presents.

The first is called the Phenomenal Woman Mix – it’s a collection of all female artists/bands that are feel good and dance worthy!

The second I’ve dubbed the Cafe’ Mix – a more mellow, relax at home with a cup of coffee blend of male and female artists.

I need your help!

What songs/artists do you recommend I add to the mixes?

Here’s some of the songs I’ve already compiled to give you an idea…

For the Phenomenal Woman Mix:

Torpedo by Jillette Johnson – Power number to start the day feeling like you can conquer the world.

Closer by Tegan and Sara – Definite dance in your underpants all weekend!

This is What Makes Us Girls by Lana Del Ray – I love Lana’s retro Nancy Sinatra look and velvety voice. This is her latest song.

For the Cafe’ Mix:

The One That Got Away by The Civil Wars – Haunting and amazing. Perfect for staring out the window and reflecting on your past.

Please, Baby Please by Serena Ryder – Serena’s been on the last 2 mixes as she is my favorite musician. She just released her new album this fall, called Harmony, and every song is soulfully wonderful.

Heartbeats by Johnnyswim – Romantic and moody, I love both of their voices immensely.

What do you recommend for these mixes?

Please share! I’ll put my favorite suggestions in next week’s blog post and THREE lucky commenters will receive their own copies of both cds as well!
