My midwife was thrilled when I told her I certainly would not be having any enya or whale music.

Ovary stripe: Kasabian

Tidey Sat 29-Aug-09 13:55:41

BTW, great choice on Heartbeats, I love that song.

Meglet Sat 29-Aug-09 13:56:52

bit clubby and Hi-NRG this one but might give you a boost if your energy is flagging

mason Vs princess superstar - Perfect

SpawnChorus Sat 29-Aug-09 14:21:08

Meglet - Fools Gold is actually my "corner stone" track...I think I might end up having it on repeat grin and YES to Perfect...I love that track SO much.

Am off to listen to the other suggestions...thanks

I don't think this is your style but I am feeling soppy and so will suggest:

Greatest Day : Take That

What a Difference A Day Makes : Various but Jamie Callum has covered recently

What a Wonderful World : Louis Armstrong

I Love You Baby (or is it Too Good To Be True): Frankie Valli

Having said that, DS was actually born to Lemon Jelly and Air Moon Safari played back to back as I found prominent lyrics and beats a bit distracting and preferred a more chill-out style soundtrack.

tbh - you may not give a flying fiddle what music is on at the time. I think planning the birth is nice, and fun (and gives you something to think of during the pg!), but tbh I guess it rarely turns out as you plan. I brough cd's in with me, but I don't think I used them (really can't remember!)

SpawnChorus Sat 29-Aug-09 14:43:22

mondaymonday - I've had two labours already grin. I'm prob going to have to head to hosp relatively early so I can get ABs for Group B Strep, and I think the music might make it all a bit more homely for me.

SpawnChorus Sat 29-Aug-09 14:45:03

PasturesNew:I love you baby was our wedding dance song btw, so very much my style!

mondaymonday Sat 29-Aug-09 14:45:07

fair enough! Hope it goes well for you. I actually had a really relaxing time for most of the day after an epidural, and spent much time listening to radio and reading blush

SpawnChorus Sat 29-Aug-09 15:14:48

Anymore suggestions?

pasturesnew Sat 29-Aug-09 15:28:45

Loving You (is easy cos you're beautiful) : not sure who did this originally, google's first choice is Minnie Ripperton who I've never heard of.

I am rubbish at pub quizzes btw.

pasturesnew Sat 29-Aug-09 15:32:11

Maybe Thank You : Dido but only for the chorus really

Ditto Survivor : Destiny's Child if it's hard going, but really absolutely only the chorus here!

pasturesnew Sat 29-Aug-09 15:34:34

Born at the Right Time : Paul Simon
