Playlist for the last day on earth

last day on earthJust in case the world is going to end on Friday I thought I would surround myself with cookies and music. Recipe for the chocolate peppermint cookies that W and I will be making this afternoon will be shared soon! (with plenty of time for you to try out before Friday.)

{For those unaware about what the deal is with December 21, 2012 you should check out how National Geographic explains the Maya Doomsday prediction.}

Here is my “the world may or may not end today” playlist. Let me know what you would add.

Louis Armstrong -What a wonderful world
(Because, well, OBVIOUSLY)

Giuseppe Verdi – Anvil Chorus (from Il Trovatore)
(instant memories of listening to Opera with my Grandfather)

US3 – Cantaloop (Flip Fantasia)

Tori Amos – Happy Phantom
(soundtrack to my early 90′s)

    I have TOO MANY that I must hear again! However, there is a song that was my song to YOU :-)
    I don’t know how to embed it (if you’d even allow), but it’s Carly Simon’s “You are the Love of My Life”… I found the YouTube video per the link below :-)
