Chatting with a friend about putting together some music to play during my (hopefully) waterbirth we started thinking of songs that are....well....themed. Mainly to try and make the Midwife go hmm "wtf" than to actually play all the way through.

So far we have
Under the Sea
The Celine song from Titanic
Born Slippy grin

I need more! Help please!

The Ring of Fire

DS was born to Ghostbusters(not intentionally tbh, DH put on the wrong Spotify playlist), I also had the Star Wars theme tune playing when the placenta was delivered grin.

Anything by Wet wet wet.

These are amazing! The list is going to be brilliant. Am hoping the MWs will be chuffed not to have to listen to whale song or, even worse, James Blunt.

I just had a quick look on my Spotify for ideas:

Everybody hurts, REM
Under Pressure or I want to Break Free, Queen
shout, Lulu
Stand and Deliver, Adam ant
The drugs don't work The verve,

'Watch out for the creature from the tub' - my 3 year old loves this song!

Pregnantagain7 Fri 22-Aug-14 09:47:27

Diana Ross I'm coming out grin

squizita Fri 22-Aug-14 14:46:54

I'm putting "Bat out of hell" on my Spotify list. grin

My yoga instructor suggested reggae or R&B as it encourages the right kind of movement/dancing.

DH suggested I wear my apple bottom jeans and boots with the fur.. so baby gets low low low low!

MissFenella Fri 22-Aug-14 14:58:36

Theme from Jaws?

rosiegal Fri 22-Aug-14 15:37:37

If you're aiming for inappropriate then you cant go wrong with a bit of Prodigy and smack my bitch up, definitely good for shock factor!

RiverTam Fri 22-Aug-14 15:43:59

hahaha, I was going to suggest Born Slippy (DH is a huge Underworld plan and did mumble something about creating a playlist for DD's birth!)!

grin at theme from Jaws.

RiverTam Fri 22-Aug-14 15:44:13

plan??? Fan!

BonjourMinou Fri 22-Aug-14 15:46:11

"Newborn" - Muse
"Water Wonderful World" - Sorry, that was a bit of a cheat...
"Bridge over troubled water" - Simon and Garfunkel

Surfaris - Wipe Out
Arcade Fire - Ocean of Noise
Deep Purple - Smoke on the Water
March of the Valkyries
Nelly - Hot in Herre

Should be a nice mix there of aquatic, novelty and just not nice :P
