By Jackie Helton, the Music Mama
March is known not only for the “luck of the Irish” on St. Patty’s Day but also its gale force winds that can wreak havoc on a mama’s hair. But there’s no point fighting it, so we may as well crank up this March playlist and sing into the wind! (By the way, there’s only 19 more days until the first official day of Spring!!) To make your own March playlist, just log on to your favorite online music store, like iTunes, and download your favorites on this list.

Tips for iPods: To save battery, control your backlight time. Go to Main Menu, scroll down to Settings, and then Backlight Timer. You can turn it off, or maybe just set it to 2 seconds. It will stretch your battery life between charges.
