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!
Well done on your 5!
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)
Great picks! REM…it’s been a while since I’ve listened to them.
These have been in heavy rotation on my sunny fall playlist…
Perfection / Oh Land
Don’t Hold the Wall / Justin Timberlake
I Wish I Was the Moon / Neko Case
The Great Escape / Lap Cat
We Can’t Stop / Miley Cyrus
Mindy turned me onto Neko Case…great stuff!
Thanks for sharing. 🙂
Neko Case Wish I was the moon too but Train from Kansas City really really loud is great
ooops and anything by Rush!
can’t wait to hear yours on 11/15th!
It will be pre-recorded. Hopefully, I won’t sound so goofy that way. I wonder if I’ll sound like my voice mail voice?
I’ll tune in! And hey… I’m going to text you about a climbing date. X
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.
My perfect five would be from the bands I saw in person when I was in high school, ahh the good old days:
Long Time – Boston
Barracuda – Heart
We are the Champions – Queen
Go your own Way – Fleetwood Mac
Rock n Roll all night – Kiss (Yes I saw them and still have the concert program!)
Fantastic! I love that you saw all of them in person.
On heavy rotation this month:
Grouplove’s “Ways to Go”. Gregory Alan Isakov’s “Big Black Car”. Calvin Harris’ version of Florence Welch’s “Sweet Nothing”. Imagine Dragons “Radioactive”. Alabama Shakes “Always Alright”.
I’m fan of Grouplove. And “Radioactive”…how can that not be a theme for some of us? 🙂
