List of Playlists

I suddenly have a lot more time on my hands. Waiting for this baby. It's not comfy, I don't recommend it - but one really good thing is the me time. So I organized the music on my computer. There was 20 gigabytes, and I deleted half of it! Hey, I don't listen to it anymore, and I don't like it. If I could put the song into a playlist, then I kept it.

Here is the list of my playlists, and a short description of what they are. If you want to know what's on them, just ask!

"High Quality"
Dorky, random songs that both Danny and I love
example: Ghost Chickens in the Sky

4th of July
Patriotic songs
example: "Born in the U.S.A." by Bruce Springsteen

annoying songs that have been stuck in our heads for weeks at a time
example: "You Are My Lucky Star" from Singin' in the Rain

Arabic fall asleep to

Calm music from Jordan
example: عيني
by Amr Diab

Random Arabic music, some of which I have not listened to yet!
example: basically every single song by Feruz

Blast from the Past

Technically, this includes Fox Searchlight animated flicks and "The Swan Princess", but...

energetic classical

example: Die Fledermaus Overture by Strauss

fall asleep to

I don't usually fall asleep to music, but this is an old playlist that I liked.
example: "From This Moment On" by Shania Twain

female angst

What's funny about this playlist is that most of the playlist is 3 artists: Evanescence, Alanis Morissette, and Avril Lavigne. I don't know how I'd feel if all of my music went into one playlist!


The entire Marriage of Figaro by Mozart


Songs in French
example: ranging from George Brassens to Star Academy 2002 to Louise Attaque

Gruntmaster 9000

This is a workout playlist, so fast, upbeat tunes
example: "the Best Years of our Lives" from the Shrek soundtrack

Happy Hickville, USA

upbeat, positive Country music

I Love Danny
Music that reminds me of Danny
example: "Danny Boy" by Motab

in the mood

old time swing music
example: the Glenn Miller that I have

Jane's lullabies

songs that I'm hoping will help Jane fall asleep
example: lots of James Taylor

Jane's playtime

Kate in Jordan

this is an old playlist of favorite songs that I listened to in Jordan
example: "Be Easy" by Massari (it was popular at the time!)


songs that have ended up on my blog somehow
example: "Le Temps des Cerises"

makes me cry every time

Okay, so they don't REALLY make me cry every time, but they're sappy x 1,000,000 and yes, sometimes I DO cry!
example: "A Heartbeat Away" from the Charly soundtrack

makes me cry every OTHER time

These songs are a continuation of the previous list, but maybe a little less sappy.
example: "Amazed" by Lonestar

men suck (except Danny)

I know I don't need breakup songs, but it makes a fun playlist
example: "Better Things to Do" by Terri Clark

my dog died and I love my truck

This is by far the funniest/best/longest playlist that I made. It has sad Country songs with hilarious lyrics.
example: "That Aint My Truck" by Rhett Akins

non-spirichal Mormon songs

These songs are by LDS artists but they aren't necessarily for Sunday listening
example: Colors, acapella groups like Vocal Point

non-obnoxious Classical Music
example: Mozart

oldies but goodies

Songs that weren't popular during my lifetime, but I still like!
example: "A-B-C" by the Jackson Five


Songs that have to do with places

example: "Gary, Indiana!" from the Music Man, and "California Girls" by the Beach Boys - you get the drift

Reliving My Childhood
Songs that I listened to a LOT when I was young
example: the entire CD of the Eagles' Greatest Hits

Reminds me of Greg Weld

He's a great friend who introduced me to a lot of music

senior year emo/punk

This is the awful music I liked as a senior. Sometimes it's fun to listen to again...
example: anything and everything by Dashboard Confessional


This is what I've been listening to most often on Pandora. The problem with my collection is that it's limited (although, probably more extensive than most peoples'!)
example: The Phantom of the Opera, The Music Man, Newsies, Anything Goes, Wicked, Fiddler on the Roof, etc.

Social Dance 180 w/ Danny

These are foxtrots, cha-chas, waltzes, and a few swing songs
example: "Let's Do It, Let's Fall In Love" by Cole Porter


This is my Sunday playlist
example: EFY songs, Motab

Utards Can't Drive

Songs for driving
example: "Danger Zone" by Kenny Loggins?


Yet another workout mix. This is wishful thinking for post-baby days. Trust me, it's not happening right now!
example: the Gladiator Theme by Enya

So what you learn about me from my music is that my favorite genres are showtunes, soundtracks, and country, in that order. But I will listen to lots of things, and I also really, really like specific artists from other genres, like Bruce Springsteen and Collective Soul. Also, I don't own any rap music except for a few Will Smith songs, but only because they were super popular when I was in Middle School (like, "Gettin' Jiggy With It!" - is that even really considered rap???). I also like weird, nerdy, funny songs, like what Weird Al sings. And I also really like some classical music! Yeah, I'm dorky, but I've reconciled myself with that fact long ago.
