Music Mama: “Name” that playlist

By Jackie Helton, the Music Mama

The idea for this month’s playlist came to me in my sleep one night — seriously. It’s been fun trying to think of as many songs as I could with a girl’s name in the title. There are probably a few more I haven’t thought of, but this is a good start. (Is your name on the list?) If you think of a song with a girl’s name in the title, click the word “comment” below and add it to this list.

Speaking of all things girly, check out these cool iPod “skins” I found on a website called They’re perfect for a girly girl who is really into music. Click on any of the pictures if you want to go to the website that sells them.

If you want to download this month’s playlist, just print this page and then go to an online music store like iTunes and buy your favorites. Now on to the list… this one’s “for the girls.”
