I’m hoping to be able to bring Tany and Amy home from the hospital tomorrow. It’s a bit iffy at the moment as they are checking Amy for jaundice and Tany still needs some time to recover, but here’s hoping.
In planning for their return I wanted some ideas of what to play in the car. As I have been reminded, Amy’s been listening to our music for a little while, so some stuff will be familiar. But, I wanted her first car trip to be proper, restful and for her to start hearing some good music properly. So I asked Facebook friends for input.
Some were more helpful than others. I was after some specific ideas, rather than just suggesting genres of music, but I got some good ideas. So here’s the list.
- Godspeed (Sweet Dreams) – Dixie Chicks
- Underneath the Stars – Kate Rusby
- Down to the River to Pray – Alison Krauss
- Blackbird – The Beatles
- I Will Hold On – Vineyard
- Here is Love – Matt Redman
- Amazing Grace (My Chains are Gone) – Chris Tomlin
- Moonlight Serenade – Glenn Miller
- A Nightingale Sang in Berkley Square – Harry Connick Jr
- Early Morning Rain – Eva Cassidy
- 40 – U2
- One Day Like This – Elbow
- Georgia On My Mind – Willie Nelson & Wynton Marsalis
- Lucy – Divine Comedy
- Lord, Let Your Glory Fall – Matt Redman
- A Train Not Running – Chris Knight
- MLK Song – Patty Griffin
- Nashville – David Mead
- A Change is Gonna Come – Sam Cooke
It’s tempting to keep adding to this for when she’s home. What do you think?
I’d like to have put on some of the other suggestions, but I’m trying to be good about not spending too much on iTunes. I’d rather save and buy a whole album rather than one track. So, ELO and Randall Goodgame may have to wait a few weeks. Jazz albums will be on when she gets home.
