The Perfect Feel-Good Playlist
I have been VERY big on playing music around the house this past year.
I get a little anxious when it’s too quiet (as quiet as it can get with two kids running around) and love to set a vibe for the kids and for us whether we are hanging out, cooking, dancing, whatever.
We tend to do reggae on Sunday mornings, Kidz Bop when we want to throw together an impromptu dance party, and classical when it’s time for the kids to mellow out a little.
But our favorite playlist lately has been this one. Skater hubs threw it together without giving it much thought and we find ourselves queuing it up all the time, when we’re busy cooking, for a casual dinner with friends, on those Sunday mornings when we’re (rarely) reggae’d out.
Music is subjective, of course, and you may hate Oasis (according to Little D, at 5-years-old, they are “a very emotional band.”), but if you can’t find a few tunes on here that get you singing along, I will give you your money back.
