Jack Rocks

I've seen a number of friends on FB ask for other people's suggestions for good songs for a workout or gym mix. It got me thinking about our Jack playlists. Before Jack was born, I made a playlist for the delivery room. Nipper made a whole series of mixes to play in the car. Jack mix one through a million now. We just wanted to surround the little guy with good music. I guess in some way, we feel like if we fill his developing brain with the blues, maybe he'll have a natural aversion to Radio Disney when he hears it. A mom can dream. 

Here is a playlist of some of our favorites. The songs we find ourselves listening to over and over. The songs that make Jack say "AGAIN!" when they play in the car. I'd love it if people would send their favorites along, either in the comments section or in an email. No Barney please! Can't wait to see what you all are listening too!
