Cleaning Playlist 101

I've said it before and I'll say it once again, music is KEY to cleaning the house. Every time I get ready to clean the house I turn on my "clean the house mix" (such an old school name, I know) and get down to the dirty work. I thought since I've said it so many times that instead of just simply saying play a bunch of upbeat music, I would instead provide you my lovelies with my very own full proof cleaning playlist.

My list is about 30 songs, so I'll list them rather than linking them all individually. It has some current tunes, some old tunes and even some Disney tunes. I like to listen to a little bit of everything when I clean. Each of these songs not only puts me in a good mood but really keeps me feeling motivated.


1. Dangerous  - Big Data ft. Joywave  (Big Data is AMAZING live btw)
2. In Too Deep - Sum 41
3. Float On - Modest Mouse 
4. Cute Without The "E" Cut from the team - Taking Back Sunday
5. How You Like Me Now -  The Heavy
6. Your so Vain - Carly Simon
7. One Week - Barenaked Ladies
8. Love Train - The O'Jays
9. That's How You Know - Amy Adams (Enchanted Soundtrack)
10. Hot in Herre - Nelly
11. La Freak - Chic
12. I Just Can't Wait to Be King - Lion King Soundtrack
13. ABC - Jackson 5
14. Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious - Mary Poppins (of course)
15. Mariella - Kate Nash


16. Under the Sea - Little Mermaid Soundtrack
17. #SELFIE - The Chainsmokers
18. Counting Stars - One Republic
19. Ding Dong The Witch is Dead - Glee Cast
20. A Horse With No Name - Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers
21. Be My Lover - La Bouche
22. Sail - Awolnation
23. Who Are You - The Who
24. Maneater - Nelly Furtado
25.I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles) - The Proclaimers
26. Blow - Ke$ha
27. Madness - MUSE
28. Call Me Maybe - Carly Rae Jepsen
29. Short Skirt / Long Jacket - CAKE
30  Should I Stay or Should I Go - The Clash
 
Do you have any of these on your Cleaning Playlist?
If not, what should I add to my list?

  3. I don't have a cleaning playlist, but I do have a few favorite songs that keep me going while I'm cleaning. One time I was listening to Theory of a Deadman and singing (screaming) along...and my neighbor was knocking at the door and I didn't hear her. Guess it could have been worse.

  9. I love Le Freak! Chic really knows how to get me moving for dusting and polishing! Did you know that record sold over 7 million single copies? "I just can't wait to be King!" is great. Helen Reddy's "I am Woman" gets me motivated through the tough stuff. Thanks for the fantastic list of songs for cleaning.

  13. Ever since I got a new computer I haven't put any MP3s on it - now I listen to songs from Songza.com or Shoutcast.com - I especially like the first one because you can choose your mood or whatever you're doing. Super fun :)

  22. You've got some great songs on there. I'll have to check out the ones I'm not familiar with. For me, music is key for everything. My life and all the activities in it have their own playlists. lol I have my workout playlist, my cleaning playlist, my "feeling romantic" playlist, my dance party with the kids playlist, my making dinner playlist... Love music!

  23. I don't listen to music nearly as much as I should. I am always working and I find music distracting when I am trying to concentrate. I will listen to Christian radio and the Backstreet Boys while I am driving though

  45. I'm going to add sound outdoors and play I Just Can't Wait to Be King and Ding Dong, The Witch is Dead while I do the weeding and tend the garden. When it's time to paint the house this fall, I'll tone down the zip to Who Are You and A Horse with No Name. Music is wonderful!
