What are your 5?

94.7 KNRK is a local radiostation in Portland, OR.  Monday through Friday, on the way home from the standard work day, they play “The Perfect Playlist“.  The Perfect Playlist is a group of 5 songs selected by a station listener.  Occasionally, that listener goes to the station to talk about the selection while it is playing on the air.

Guess what I’m doing for Lung Cancer Awareness Month?

November 15th I will be talking to local listeners about MY Perfect Playlist.  I selected 5 songs that are significant to me and my lung cancer story.  Sounds easy?  Not for this girl.  I brainstormed songs for several months before I carefully selected the finalists.    I wanted them to be perfect.

I am interested in hearing from you!  What songs are fitting for your life right now?  Don’t send an email….put it in the comments below!

    Kate Bush: Lake Tahoe (the whole album “50 Words for Snow” is just one long mellow fantastic listen, though)
    REM: Perfect Circle (live “MTV Unplugged” has a great version)
    Neil Finn / Eddie Vedder: Take a Walk (they just love playing and performing together…and it shows both in the audio and video versions)
    Shins: Riffle’s Sprial (really great beat that gets me going)
    U2 – Drowning Man (when I want to be sad….this is my go-to song)

    Oh sweet! You were selected!! I have a cancer playlist which contains songs with both kinds of endings.

    I remember you saying it was an alternative rock station? My first pick would be “Fix You” by Coldplay.
