Spring Fever Playlist

Even Yoda loves our jams.
We're like DJ's for Jedis.
Recently someone asked me what music Kate & I were rocking out to in the Big White Tampon.  The answer was nothing good because I hate everything on my iPod as I've heard it approximately 4,987 times.  Then three of my friends on Facebook mentioned in their status updates that they were looking for recommendations for new music. It wasn't just me!

So I got busy and found some new tunes and made a playlist for us.  You can check out the track list below.  We also published the Spring 2010 RFML Playlist on iTunes where you can hear everything.  Here it is:
  1. 6 Foot 7 Foot (feat. Cory Gunz) by Lil Wayne [Editor's Note: According to the Cap'n this song is not good for kids, just because it has a lot of curse words and stuff and Lil Wayne may or not be a felon or something.  He was like "I can't believe you're listening to this with Mini in the car!" And I was all "Umm... it's educational.  Because it teaches *counting*"  Somehow he seemed unconvinced and has since laid down a No Lil Wayne Dictum when kids are in the car.  What a square. - xo, Lydia]
  2. Right Round by Flo Rida
  3. This is a GLEE-heavy playlist.
     Because the kids love it.
    OK, fine. We're Gleeks.  Suck it.
  4. Hello by Martin Solveig & Dragonette
  5. Rocketeer by Far East Movement & Ryan Tedder
  6. MASH-UP ALERT!!! Jennifer Lopez vs Edward Maya ft Pitbull & Vika - Love On The Stereo Floor by DJ Ryson

  15. Dog Days Are Over by Florence and the Machine
  16. Rolling In the Deep by Adele (ditto on this one)

Now please help us!  We need your recommendations.  The last time we asked you to send your song suggestions we got SO MUCH good stuff.  So! What's good out there? Especially stuff we may not have heard of.  What are the songs that your kids love that you can actually stand listening to?  When we get enough of them, we'll compile them into a Volume 2 on iTunes. 

Gracias hookers!
xo, Lydia & Kate
