What's on your iPod?
Hey everyone! I'm trying to get my iPod beach ready! It's still a while until we leave but I need some good music to get me by until May! What are you favorite beach tunes? My current favs are Toes by Zac Brown Band and of course anything from Bob Marley! Looking forward to seeing what everyone else has!
Start listening to Pandora, create your own reggae station. It will give you lots of ideas you may never have thought of and you'll know it's stuff you really like.
Yeah, you definitely are not going to hear enough Bob Marley while in Jamaica. Make sure you take some. :rolleyes:
Personally, and this is just for my taste, I enjoy listening to some great classic rock for a change of pace, as a little reggae goes a long way with me.
When you listen at the beach you really feel like you are in Jamaica (and you are! LOL) ...then when you listen again at home... you feel like you are back in Jamaica (but then sadly, you are not. LOL)
We're headed to CN for our third time on 3/12 and I've been compiling my playlists - I have one for the room for when we get ready to go out at night (since CN has docking stations in all the rooms) and I have a seperate playlist to listen to while at the pool and/or beach.
Don't know if they're your taste but here goes a few:
UB40 - Can't help falling in love
Uncle Kracker - Drift Away (I also have the original by Dobie Gray)
Jimmy Cliff - I can see clearly now & Shelter of your love
Fugees - Killing me softly
Israel Kamakawiwo'ole - Somewhere over the rainbow & Take me home country road
Christopher Cross - Sailing
That should get your going!
My iPod is full of eclectic rock.
From Alice Cooper to U2. 60's to 2010. Glam to Metal. Carole King to Lady GaGa. Beatles to Buck Cherry.
I like my rock.
jimmy buffett - dukes on sunday
Pandora... You can't go wrong!
I am still a country girl at heart so its new country and a little rock thrown in...we will be there in may also 4-9th maybe we will be there at the same time.
There are some FREE podcasts on iTunes that I enjoy very much and have downloaded onto my iphone. Specifically:
BigMikeyDread - Reggae Radio
House of Reggae
"Get away to where the boat leaves from" by Zac Brown.
Jimmy Buffett (of course)
Uncle Kracker -- Smile, Follow Me
Al Jareau -- Album-Breakin Away
Tracy Chapman -- Gimme one reason
Tim MacGraw/Faith Hill
And a host of others
Matisyahu, bob marley, damian mArley, buffet, somewhere over the rainbow by Israel....many more
Mine is loaded with Green Day! Plus a little Katy Perry, Pink and GaGa.
Old rocker here, and have been rebuilding my vinyl collection with cd's for about 20 years. Now that I've got my new iPod, I'm in the process of moving that, as well as my classical and reggae collections, to iTunes. Quite an extensive exercise, but its coming along, and I'm about half done.
The beauty of it is, you can choose to load up and travel with whatever strikes your mood or fancy at the time. Naturally, the beach bring out that certain vibe that you don't want to be without.
Load up on reggae... feel your way around on Pandora, 1FM or any of the other myriad streaming radio options to be found online these days. Other beach faves for me are this Jason Mraz youngster, Jimmy Buffet, the BeachBoys... you know what you like, go for it!
Bluegrass to The Black Keys. The Grateful Dead to Jay Z. Sly and The Family Stone to The Drive By Truckers. I have a wide variety of music on my IPod because I am pretty much a "music geek".
Inna Jamaica....by YT.....it's on iTunes.
Two of my favorite songs that I keep on my I-pod are Pressure Drop and Time Tough by Toots and the Maytals. They always take me home to CSS.
Marley of course! Gyptian, Luciano, Sean Paul, Vybz Kartle, Jah Krue and Mavado.
Also, I-Octane and Pressure. Both great! Damion told me about them last year.
Anyone going soon? Please tell Damion hello from Vince & Maria.
try looking up Beres Hammond, Luciano, or Morgan Heritage for contemporary reggae, and Toots and the Maytals and Bob Marley for classic stuff
IPOD stations need turning down at CTI!! not everyone wants to hear blasting from the rooms?!
Great post idea!! I have island music playing all day long on my iPod at work :)
My favorite is Michael Franti... But some others that are getting me in the mood are:
The Dirty Heads
and of course, BOB :)

Thanks for all of the suggestions! I will be looking those up! Is Pandora available when there is no internet connection?
