Deployment Playlist

I love music.  No matter what genre you're a fan of, the music always seems to find a way to seep into your soul.  No situation hasn't been sung about at some point in time.  Deployments and separations aren't an exception.

A Deployment Playlist is essential.

Military wives may be some of the world's strongest women most of the time, but even we need to wallow in sadness every once in awhile.  My list has songs that make me cry until snot comes out of my nose.  I know, pretty picture right?  

But there are songs here too that just make me feel like I'm not alone.  And when you're half a world away from your sweetie, not feeling alone is pretty much the most important thing.  

Enjoy this hodgepodge of genres.  I'm pretty sure there's something for everyone here!

  1. Wow! That is an impressive playlist. I am a big fan of the Theory of a Deadman songs. During deployment their album is always in rotation. I wish I had some to add but WOW...it looks like you have them all!

  2. Thanks! I've gotten some from people here & there. I listen to a pretty wide range of music :)
