Have you heard of the “Air Guitar” albums (there’s 3)? They’re kind of old I don’t even know if you can buy them but the playlists would be out there.


Anyway, I think most (if not all) of the songs on those albums would benefit your needs. My dad played them a lot when I was small and he’s pretty anti-profanity.

Pretty much anything by Stevie Nicks. I love her! Listening to her right now. Particularly, Leather and Lace, Rhiannon, Night Bird, Street Angel (my favorites). Leather and Lace is a really beautiful love song.

I have these decades mixes by DJ duo ‘Flight Facilities’ which are amazing! There’s 72 to 82, 82 to 92, 92 to 02.  Each goes for an hour and is free download here;


We’re going to put one on when the band finishes at our wedding, because they’re awesome, and then we don’t need to waste time putting together that many songs ourselves!
