  1. how fun-yea for contests- Uncle kracker "Smile". Lisa

  2. Nothin' on You - B.o.B. is pretty catchy!


  3. I like Ridin in my Car by She & Him. Thanks for a chance to win!

  4. Muse "Resistance". Sarah Owen sdowen7(at)gmail(dot)com

  5. This year we have loved listening to Owl City's Fireflies. That and Taylor Swifts's Love Story (my 5 & 7 year old LOVE it)!

  6. It's a toss-up between "Love Lost" by The Temper Trap and "Something Good Can Work" by Two Door Cinema Club.


  7. I'm in love with Change of Time by Josh Ritter right now. Also Run by Vampire Weekend. My kids are in love with Owl City. I want these playlists!!!!

  8. You can't go wrong with some Lady Gaga- Bad Romance :)
    Emily Waggoner

  9. definitely Ridin' In my Car - She & Him - the whole album is amazing, but this one just really sticks out to me.

  10. Empire State of Mind - Jay-Z and Alicia Keys

    I'm from NY but living in Cali and I just get so happy when that song comes on. Something I can TOTALLY rock out to!


  11. Glitter in the Air -- Pink.

    Just found passionista and would LOVE to win one of her mixes!! I love her style but can't find much of it on the radio.

    Cute blog! Looks like a great resource.

  12. I love "Rock and Roll" by Eric Hutchinson and pretty much everything else he sings!

  13. I am loving "Soul Sister" by Train; which I first heard on the Passionista blog. Marilyn's monthly mixes are all that keep me almost cool enough for my teenage daughter and her friends!

  14. ANYthing by "she & him"...anything at all.

    or anything on one of marilyn's mixes...she's the best at finding new music!

  15. I honestly can't tell you the names of any songs of 2010. Man, I'm so uncool. I guess I should turn off talk radio, and listen to FM more often ;)

    I do listen to the handful of great music mixes that Marilyn has made for me, and I love them!

  16. "The Only Exception" by Paramore.

    The mix music is fab by the way!

  17. I can't seem to get "You and me" by the Dave Matthews Band out of my head! Love that song!

  18. My favorite song is I Need You Now by Lady Antebellum. It's probably getting old to most people, but I still love it!


  19. Guess I'm feeling breezy, as at the moment I'm really feeling "Berkeley Girl" by Harper Simon & "Lifetime" by Katherine McPhee. Both listens inspired by Passionista!
