Is anyone going to have music playing while in labor? If so what type of songs will be on your list? If not what would you put on the list?

I've been debating this for awhile. I definitely want to put something together, but am unsure of what I want to include.

I will and I am filling up my MP3 player currently with MP3s off DHs computer. He has thousands upon thousands of songs. So far I have about 450 songs on my MP3 for during labor. Some are songs that pump me up and ones I like to exercise too. Which is a lot of pop/hip hop/rock/80s/90s. And then I also have a lot of songs that I can zone out too that are relaxing and calming to me which is 50s/60s, old blues, old jazz, country and 70s mellow grooves. If I were to even attempt to list off specific songs or artists well...like I said I so far have 450 songs on there lol and am adding more so I will spare you a list lol.

I only have about 30 songs, but I don't know how much I'll actually use the music. It's mostly Florence and the Machine, Mumford and Sons, and then a little hard rock and misc if I need it.

I have a playlist on my iPod for 5 hours, because if I need to put that on repeat, that's a lot of music so that I won't hear the same song over and over until I want to throw the iPod. I mostly have classical music, like from movies, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, but I also have some odd songs in there: some Beatles, some Mumford and Sons, Christmas Music...It's all very calming and soothing stuff.

I've been accumulating songs on my MP3 player for labor. It is a wide variety of songs that I absolutely love and make me want to sing my heart out. Some are fast paced and pump me up, some are more mellow. They range from 80's, classic rock, metal, hip hop, acoustic, etc. hopefully I can find something in there that will work regardless of my mood when the time comes.

I'll probably just play a bunch of Sigur Ros since I can't discern the lyrics but it totally zones me out. Calm but not at all distracting.
