Dinner Party Music

With Valentines Day coming up, and spring just around the corner (hopefully!) there are many dinner parties to be had! With dinner parties comes much stress for the hostess. Of course, music is one of the last things to think of. I do love the pre-made CDs for dinner parties such as "Dinner at Eight" but I really like to have my own mix of songs. I am an old soul when it comes to music. Frank Sinatra is my go to for dinner parties, but to add a little variety and to please all musical tastes, I add variations. Here is my list of dinner party songs. Check them out! and feel free to share your dinner party favorites!

1. Every Step of the Way- David Benoit
2. Come Away With Me- Nora Jones
3. Come Fly With Me- Michael Buble
4. Unforgettable- Nat King Cole
5. The Way You Look Tonight- Rod Stewart
6. Celebrate Me Home- Kenny Loggins
7. Change the World- Eric Clapton
8. Beyond the Sea- Robbie Williams
9. Wonderful Tonight- Eric Clapton
10. Trois Gymnopedies: Gymnopedie No.1- Frank Glazer
11. Life In Technicolor- Coldplay
12. I Left My Heart In San Francisco- Tony Bennett
13. Summer Wind- Frank Sinatra (the reason for my blog title!)
14. Take 5- Dave Brubeck
15. I'll Be Seeing You- Billie Holiday
16. Neon- John Mayer

I looove hosting dinner parties. My favorite CD's to thrown on are:

Anything by Theivery Corporation
Koop Islands
Ana Caram
Bebel Gilberto
Meaghan Smith

So swanky and sophisticated. We usually have a Miles Davis in the rotation, and of course Mr. Sinatra!
