Childbirth playlist

My wife wants something to listen to during the impending…“ordeal.” I came up with:

  1. Baby - Justin Beiber
  2. Push It - Salt n Pepa
  3. Drop It Like it’s Hot - Snoop Dogg
  4. Dare You to Move - Switchfoot
  5. The Boy Is Mine - Brandy & Monica
  6. Get Low - DJ Snake
  7. I’m Coming Out – Diana Ross
  8. Hurt So Good – John Mellencamp

No Googling. That’s cheating. Bonus points for newer songs. Whatchu got?

Stay Up Late - Talking Heads

Havin’ My Baby-Paul Anka.

Daytime Friends & Nighttime Lovers - Kenny Rogers
Motel Lover - Marvin Sease
All I Wanna Do is Make Love to You - Heart
You Won’t See Me Cry - Wilson Phillips
Pain - Betty Wright
After the Pain - Betty Wright
Daddy’s Little Girl - Nikki D
Dear Mama - Tupac

If your wife kicks your ass afterwards, that’s not my fault.

Here Comes the Sun - Beatles (if it’s a boy)

Set My Baby Free - Ian Brown

HAH! Best one so far. Who wants to try to steal the blue ribbon?

Has she ever been in labor before?

Born this way - Lady Gaga
Born in the USA - Springsteen (if you’re American)
Constipation blues - Screaming Jay Hawkins (also a painful ordeal)

This is your land comes to mind

I Can See Clearly Now - Johnny Nash

Push me down - Lana del Ray
My wife is due in August and was laughing her ass off reading this thread.

In my experience, playing that song to a woman who is currently in labor will NOT improve her mood.:frowning:

Billie Jean - Michael Jackson


It wasn’t intended to. What did you expect? :smiley:

Stand and Deliver, Adam and the Ants.

100% screamo metal playlist, natch.

(What about Closing Time by Semisonic?)

Fantastic Baby -BIGBANG
Mother of Darkness - Circle of Women
Fuck You - Cee-Lo Green (What she’ll be saying to you)
Crazy Kids - Ke$ha
Inside Looking Out - Grand Funk Railroad

Eh, all I’ve got

Congratulations - DESK

“You Ruined Everything” by Jonathan Coulton

The song playing through my head on an endless loop during the really hard part of labor and the first few months of my kid’s life:
Still Alive
