Handmade Hanukkah Day 2: Scarlet’s Dance Attack Mix CD!

The mix tape lives! Scarlet likes to bust out some wild dance moves, so I made her a parent-friendly (read: no nursery rhymes) mix CD of songs I’ve seen her rock out to on random occasions.  Burn it for all your parent friends and it’ll be a gift they truly appreciate, AND you’ll get to receive cute pics of their dancing babies.  A gift that gives back!  I can’t be held responsible for inappropriate lyrics though, download the no-bad-words versions:

Outkast: Hey Ya
Beyonce: All the Single Ladies
Prince: Starfish and Coffee
MIA: Paper Planes
The O’Jays: Loveland
Of Montreal: Wraith Pinned to the Mist and Other Games
Paul Simon: Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard
R Kelly: Ignition
Rilo Kiley: Portions for Foxes
The Rubettes: Sugar Baby Love
Violent Femmes: American Music
The Ting Tings: That’s Not My Name
Vampire Weekend: Oxford Comma
Belle & Sebastian: Another Sunny Day
Annie: Heartbeat
Pipettes: Pull Shapes

Justice: D.A.N.C.E
Daft Punk: Da Funk
Data Rock: True Stories
Toro Y Moi: Crusers of This

The Beatles: Octopus’s Garden
The Beach Boys: Wouldn’t It Be Nice

Make up a cute labeland burn copies for all the kids in your life!  Use it for toddler party music!




mix tapes have always been a favorite gift of mine. to give or receive. i love them, and have saved almost everyone i have gotten. 🙂


So cute! Scarlet, you are one cool girl! Those just happen to be some of my favorite songs too. I will never forget when you were at my house and All The Single Ladies came on, and your mommy and I taught you how to wiggle your hand like Beyonce when she sang "if you like it than you better put a ring on it." Then the next day, you heard the song again, and all on your own you started doing the dance moves. You are such a smarty pants.


i made them using the template that comes with the cd labels you can buy at any office supply store! super easy (i dont know how to use photoshop or anything)
