Planting Playlist

With the onset of fall, the garden chores start to pile up.  On mornings when you know you should head out with the shovel and rake but aren’t quite in the mood, a soundtrack can get the sap flowing.  The trick is to not start out with something too slow [Sting] or something too high octane [Van Halen].  The neighbors or Rufus might frown on that.

It’s hard to go wrong with the likes of:

  • Chuck Berry               Johnny B. Goode
  • Little Richard              Good Golly Miss Molly
  • Fats Domino               Blueberry Hill
  • Lloyd Price                 Stagger Lee
  • Jerry Lee Lewis          Great Balls of Fire
  • Beach Boys                Help me Rhonda
