a big, huge thanks to everyone who chimed in with their travel + preparing to leave tips. you are so wonderful. blogworld is positively swarming with helpful people and brilliant minds. i love it. 
have been studying up on my disneyland survival and merriment via the comment section on this post by marta. it is chock full of genius suggestions from people who have seriously conquered this whole having a magical day deal. yay. if you guys have any more traveling tips or disney hints, lay them on me. please, pretty please. i will love you forever and think of you when i go romping through the streets of tomorrowland. 
oh, and if you have a song that you think would make this mix even more marvelous, lay that on me too. i have an itunes gift card and i'm not afraid to use it.

Look up Lisa Hannigan's CD Sea Sew. We just got it yesterday, and I'm loving it. Oh, and if you're flying, wear slip on shoes; it'll make security lines go SO much more smoothly.

Ooh great, I always love a new list of music.

I love The Benjamin Gate - they're kinda hardcore Christian but not screaming or anything. Check them out. Sadly, no longer a group.

Death Cab for a Cutie - Summer Skin

Eric Hutchinson - Ok it's alright with me
Eric Hutchinson - Rock n' Roll
Break Free - Hillsong United

Lily Allen's new album - It's Not Me, It's You - some bad words so I just skip over that part :)

Air - Playground Love

I think that's all my recommendations :)

By the way, thanks for the new John Mayer songs! :) Never heard them. I loveeee his music. Oh maybe some Damien Rice - Cannonball, Volcano, The Blowers Daughter, Delicate.

Cool song list. You are going to have a great time and I love the Disney post on Marta's blog. Helpful.

Look up
Brendan James- "Let Your Beat Go On" (the whole "The Day is Brave" album is great
Amos Lee- anything from "Amos Lee" album
And I am also REALLY loving a new one I found- Justin Nozuka. Take a listen to "After Tonight"
I like really soulful things, so if you are into that I have about 1 million suggestions.
You should also (if you haven't already) check out you can create your VERY own radio stations online based on an artist you like or a song you like. You can then "thumbs up" or "thumbs down" songs to customize your stations further.
Oh and I definitely agree with Jessica on Damien Rice. He's kind of "intense", but really great. Volcano is my fave.

Renee said...

my new fave...also from "Dancing with the Stars"...(most likely what helped Shawn and Mark win!)...
"Do Your Thing" Basement Jaxx!

Maryclayre Dick said...

LUCKY! By Jason Mraz and Colbie Callet (sp?) I think you and Grant will love it...especially singing it as a duet :)

Great playlist!have fun in Cali! No tips for Disney except smile and dress for the weather, bring a backpack full of water and treats, maybe get a locker everything is so expensive there. Oh and pack Ibproren cause a headache or neckache is a guarantee.

Well, since you have such a variety, here are a few that I just purchased from iTunes: Disturbia by Rihanna, Free Fallin' by John Mayer and Get Higher by Matt Nathanson. I've been to Tokyo Disneyland and it's just as magical ... have a GREAT time!

Love #18 on your playlist, and I must admit that I've been playing leavin' by jesse mccartney a lot over the past few days, as well. Guilty pleasure!
