Comment:

This was supposed to be a mix to listen to while my wife was in labor with our first child. I began compiling a list of songs on April 14th, with the intention of making a 2 or 3 CD set having to do with sex, pregnancy, and birth. I figured that I'd have plenty of time since the little fellow wasn't due until May 20th. Her water broke around 6 pm on April 15th, and our son was born about 13 hours later. Needless to say, I didn't finish the CDs. I boiled my list down to these songs, starting with conception and ending with his trip home from the hospital. I would have liked to put more time and effort into it, but we kind of have our hands full. Thanks to explodingdog.com for the cover art, which I modified a bit to suit the occasion.

Congratulations on your new (and early) arrival. This is a splendid mix, and the inclusion of the B-Sharps is inspired!!

I had intended to finish this mix with "Brickbat" by Billy Bragg, but somehow I forgot to include it. I've now added it as the "Secret Bonus Track". Thanks to everyone for the comments and the congratulations.
