A project.

I have decided to do something "productive" today. I have been up since 5am because I took a 4 hour nap yesterday afternoon then went to sleep at 11pm. Hopefully I will get to bed at a decent hour tonight and get on a "normal" sleep schedule. Though it has been nice to wake up to a fresh stack of emails to respond to when I sleep till noon!

Sticking with my musical theme I have decided to get to work on some dinner playlists. I am looking for "background music" to play while having dinner. I want themes people! I have started a Vegas Playlist for Casino Night or a Vegas themed dinner party. Here is what I have so far, your suggestions would be appreciated! This is only one hour of music, I want to have at least 2 hours...

How High The Moon- Ella Fitzgerald and Duke Ellington
Dream a Little Dream of Me- The Rat Pack
The Way You Look Tonight- Tony Bennett
Heaven (Dancing Cheek to Cheek)- Louie Armstrong
Love Me Tender- Elvis Presley
What a Difference a Day Makes- Dinah Washington
My Way- Frank Sinatra
Mack the Knife- The Rat Pack
L-O-V-E- Wayne Newton
Come Fly With Me- Frank Sinatra
The Good Life- Bobby Darin
Luck Be a Lady Tonight- Frank Sinatra
Papa Loves Mambo- Dean Martin
You're Nobody Till Somebody Loves You- Frank Sinatra
Anything Goes- Frank Sinatra
Viva Las Vegas- Elvis Presley
Danke Shoen- Wayne Newton (never knew that's how you spelled that!)
Fly Me to the Moon- Frank Sinatra
Ain't That a Kick in the Head- Dean Martin

I know there is a lot of Sinatra but hey, it's a VEGAS playlist. I know there are some more great tunes that I can't think of so you guys throw some out there for me cuz it's fun!

The Tunes are in order, the first songs are slower and mellow because nobody really pays attention to the music when they are getting seated and situated. The rest are just great, I know if I was listening to this playlist I would be singing along or at the very least moving my shoulders to the beat!

This is one of my favorite movie songs of all time...

p.s. Hello Sydney, Australia, and Arlington, Massachusetts.
Also Hi to the Upper West Side and the East Village, NYC! Too cool. Can I come visit?


  1. I love "Fly Me To the Moon". Such a swingin' tune!

  2. For sure! I just love this mix! I want to listen to it and dance (wobble) around in high heels with a martini in my hand.

  3. That's a good one, but I LOVE How high the Moon. Wow, I didn't know we'd get to see the first 1/4th of the movie, I should have made popcorn!
