Pass the Coppertone

On our roadtrip to New Orleans, I tossed my laptop in the car and burned Matt some mixes as he cruised us towards Louisiana. I rifled through my Itunes, trying to conjure up a mixture of stuff that would keep us entertained and take Annie's mind off Jack's Big Music Show, Laurie Berkner and all things Winnie-the-Pooh.

Lo and behold, my kid is now really into the B-52s and Bob Marley. A girl can only take so much Love Shack, so I made a new mix for the car- that will continue their musical education and kick off Summer 2008. What's on your summer playlist? Here's mine:

Soak up the Sun- Sheryl Crow
Somewhere Over the Rainbow- Israel Kamakawi
Faith- George Michael
Jump- Van Halen
Footloose- Kenny Loggins
California Girls- Beach Boys
