iTunes is Jealous.

The movie No Strings Attached inspired me to make a Labor and Delivery Playlist. (In the movie, Ashton Kutcher makes Natalie Portman a period mix tape...songs like Even Flow by Pearl Jam and Bleeding Love by Leona Lewis. HAHAHAHA.)

I started working on it, but quickly ran out of ideas, so I posted a request on Facebook and got more responses than I probably would have had I posted that I had just amputated my own arm. My friends crack me up.

Labor may (read: will) be long and painful, but I will have a highly entertaining song list to keep me laughing.

And just for kicks, my all time favorite songs:
Sabotage - Beastie Boys
Pony - Ginuwine
Remix to Ignition - R Kelly
Yeah - Usher
Walking in Memphis - Marc Cohn
Proud Mary - Tina Turner
Scenes from an Italian Restaurant - Billy Joel
Detroit Rock City - Kiss

This is about 80 songs. If I assume that each song is about 3 minutes long, I have enough music for 4 hours of labor. I have decided that my labor goal (it's so important to have goals, you know?) is to beat my Ironman finishing time of 12 hours and 55 minutes. This means I will need to listen to this playlist about 3 times.

Thanks to my wonderfully creative (and slightly disturbed) friends for their help. It's a work in progress, so feel free to leave suggestions in the comments!

Sidenote: My BFF A-Mac just sent me this picture. There are no words.

OMG on that cake! I don't think I could eat that....

Tricia said...

ummm...I have no idea what this post was about. I was too disturbed by that cake


Pam said...

Pony is on my list of all-time faves too.

I can't figure out what the song Cold Hearted Snake has to do with labor.

The cake. O.M.G. the cake.
