I squealed with delight when I opened an email that my friend Ashley sent me. It had a link to Imagine That! Volume 2, a playlist complied by Brian Gossett. Billed as “music for hip moms and dads”, Brian’s list is definitely that.
Volumes 1 and 2 were inspired by a visit to Portland Brian and his wife made while looking for a perfect city in which to raise a family. He found out that, among other things, Portland has “a lot of young hip parents” and imagined they’d really like the music he complied. He made it super child-friendly by scanning each song for cuss words or adult themes, and each song passed the test but also retained its inherent kickassness.
Tell me! What songs would you put on a similar playlist?
