Hi All,
We asked for your help in creating the ultimate healing/therapeutic playlist on facebook a few weeks ago, and here is what you came up with. Thanks for all the wonderful suggestions!

Here in Minnesota it’s cool and cloudy out, and I’m in one of those ‘lay in bed and listen to music’ moods, so I figured it was the perfect time to compile and post this list, in case there are others out there in a similar mood :)

We’ll be linking to this list on the Resources page; please leave additional suggestions in the comments below and we’ll get them added. Happy listening! -Kristin

I have included YouTube videos for almost every song today (Sept. 11th). If you have any other songs you want added please email me! -Courtney

  11. Ausmerican Housewife says:

    Chasing Cars – Snow Patrol
    London Bombs – Eskimo Joe (aussie band, my baby boy's favorite song inutero and one we played for his memorial service. it's a bit melancholy but it fits. especially the line "you were lost forever, in the early days of winter".)

  12. Last Kiss- Pearl Jam

  13. On the 27th December 2009 my nephew Max Jacob Branch was born asleep, he was perfect. Watching my brother carry his tiny coffin was horrific and something I will never forget, as a big sister I needed to help him but I couldn't. We wrote a song which is dedicated to all the angels who can't be here with us.
    I'm sorry but I only have a link to the preview of the song. The Angel families from the UK who have heard it think its beautiful, I would like to think that our friends in the US might like it as well.

    Regards Kelly
