Setting The Mood With Music
Whenever I have guests over, I like to play some soft music in the background to put everyone in a party mood. I have a number of CD’s and MP3’s I like to use when I entertain and I vary them with the theme I am trying to evoke on a particular evening. Here are a few of my favorite artists and compilations to use for company ~
Jimmy Buffett – his music reminds me of warm weather, spending time on the water, and grilling.
Nat King Cole
Dean Martin – I love his songs and how happy Volare makes me when I hear it.
Édith Piaf – she defined a culture, and I love the passion her songs exude.
Andrew Lloyd Webber
C’est L’amour: Romantic French Classics
Classical Romance (featuring Beethoven, Bach, and Mendelssohn to name a few)
Dinner At Eight by Lifescapes
The Most Relaxing Piano Album in the World…Ever! (I get a big kick out of the title!)
Unforgettable Instrumental Hits
Side-note: Most of the albums above are available on music websites. I have also found many great albums on display at retail stores (where you can sample tracks), in home stores, and at bookstores. Just ask the staff!
