4am playlist....

This morning the little man decided to wake up just after 4am. Often the only way he will go back to sleep is if we play music and dance around with him in our arms. Eventually the motion sends him off to sleep and he can return to his cot. Once upon a time I would have been consumed by how annoying it was that he was awake and I would be fixated on getting back to bed. I do still have those thoughts occasionally, but this morning I managed to focus instead upon the fact that in 20 years time I will look back and think fondly of such a moment. Of holding my little man in my arms and rocking him to the music; of this precious, quiet time with just the two of us....

As I listened to each song that played this morning I couldn't help but notice how different they were to each other. I love the fact that I enjoy so many different types of music. I also find it very interesting to see what songs other people have on their ipods as it can reveal alot about them. Here are a few of the songs that came on mine today.

1. Closer - Ne-yo
2. Bad Girls - Donna Summer
3. Heart's a Mess - Gotye
4. Daydreamin' - Lupe Fiasco
5. No Lies - Noiseworks
6. Dreaming with a Broken Heart - John Mayer

I wonder what these songs say about me? What do the songs on your ipod reveal about you?


  1. recently i have been revisiting songs from my past. like last night lost witness, happiness happening came on the radio as i drove home. i still love dance music but i went through a phase when i was about 13 when that was all i listened to!
    and now i am listening to damien rice, delicate. a song that reminds me so much of my ex-love.
    i like your little playlist--there are some on there I don't know and am looking forward to discovering :)
    happy weekend. x

  2. I went through a massive dance phase in my past too - would love to swap/compare some favourites. I was listening to Damien Rice today as well! (but "The Blower's Daughter").
    I'm guessing one of the songs you don't know from my list is No Lies by Noiseworks - they are an Australian band that was big in the 80's/90's. Two of the best songs of theirs to check out if you can are "R.I.P Millie" and "Reach Out". If you can't find them I will try and post copies here.
