Whether it is music or TED talks, you can find or make playlists.  Like reading lists, they are lists of songs or talks that someone feels go well together.  An album of music such as Barry Tugwell's French horn pieces often alternates between rousing music and calm music. When our greatgrandson was a little kid, Lynn made up a couple of CD's of music she thought he would like to listen to.  I just played one yesterday. It is full of pep and memories.

Of course the songs on it are familiar to us.  They are all popular music but not of the most recent decades.  

I have spent too much time trying to avoid retyping the list of songs and I am posting this as is.  I hope one or the other of these lists will encourage you to try Amazon Music, Apple Music or Google Music if not Spotify or some other sound and music service to give you a chance to list to music full of memories, meaning and spirit for you.

The first CD for him included these pieces:

  1. I Wan'na Be Like You (The Monkey Song)  Disney Jungle Book

  2. Heigh-Ho {'Snow White' 1937}

  3. Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah {'Song of the South' 1946}

  4. Jamaica Farewell

  5. Don't Fence Me In

  6. Mockin' Bird Hill

  7. Jump Down, Spin Around

  8. Jambalaya (On the Bayou)

  9. The Purple People Eater

  10. The Marvelous Toy

  11. Day-O (Banana Boat)

  12. (How Much Is) That Doggie in the Window

  13. Swinging on a Star

The 2nd CD she made for him included these pieces
