Turnaround is WAY fun!

Y’all – this is SO exciting.

Y’know how much fun everyone always says it is to Guest DJ and make a playlist?  Well, they’re RIGHT!

I got to find out this weekend, when out of the clear blue I received a lovely email from Erin at Today’s Mama, asking me to participate in their two week “Valentine’s PlayMix” series. (And, notfornothing, but…they’re all professional and organized over there!  MOST impressive.  I may have even been a hair intimidated, but don’t tell anybody.) They’re asking fourteen Moms to submit ten love songs each, from now until February 14th…and guess who has the honor of going FIRST?!

(Dude.  I know.  I was as shocked as you are…)

That’s right – my ten picks are up on Today’s Mama HERE, right now, as well as my accompanying description.  I was on my best behavior of course…I kept on topic, I tried not to ramble, and I’m pretty sure I don’t even have any many sentence fragments!  Yay, me!

Do me a solid and swing by, k?  Then come back here and tell me what you really think.  I can take it. 😉

xoxo, Ri

Pssst:  I may be playing these and other “Quirky Love Songs” today on Blip.fm…just sayin’…

    LOL! If ANYONE should be intimidated, it should be me. Your mix it awesome and I’m all sorts of inspired to go on a iTunes spree. Don’t be surprised if I start twitter stalking you for music inspiration. :)

    Great list (with Billy Bragg on it how could it not be?) though I was surprised not to see your wedding song there. Thought for sure that one would be slipped in. 😉 Lovely list and the write-up to the music was wonderful– witty and heartfelt. Perfect for Valentine’s Day!

      HA! It was on there…then I took it off, though it WOULD be perfect. (For those of you who were NOT at my wedding as Mad was…we danced to “Come Rain or Come Shine” – the BB King/Eric Clapton version.) I also had Lyle Lovett “She’s No Lady” on and swapped it at the last minute for the John Prine.

      *sigh* So many songs…so little room. I’ll have to continue the list here next week.

    I didn’t see a place to comment over there, but I was going to come back here and comment anyway.

    Love Like the Movies says it all….and it’s the Avett Brothers, to boot!
