No matter what the occasion, you can never go wrong with a personalized CD of their favorite music. I had the opportunity recently to create my own music mix to share with my kiddos thanks to PlayAnywhere.com and the perfect digital song gift. With over 4 million songs to chose from, I put together an awesome mix that we have been grooving to on the way home from school everyday since it arrived. My kiddos love it!
As a music lover, I like to listen to a variety of different types of music and listening to the same group/sound gets boring for me and a lot of the radio stations play the same popular songs way too much. With Play Anywhere, I was able to include music from a variety of artists and sounds. I wanted it to include a little of everything and songs that I wanted my kiddos to be familiar with that I grew up with that I no longer hear on the radio. My only problem while creating my playlist is that I am horrible with song titles. So thanks to all my friends, family and the Fun On a Dime fans, who gave me some great suggestions and helped me find the right songs to make an absolutely perfect mix!
Here is My Custom List:
Do not judge my list! Ha! It’s a perfect mix of fast and slower songs (old and new) and now my kiddos are singing “Yoda” all the time. It brings a smile to my face every time!

This is our CD Cover just out of the mail. It is exactly what I created and saw on the screen before I ordered it
Tips To Making an Awesome Custom CD
- Do search by album/artist for your songs – it’s a lot easier to find the version of the song you want
- There are a lot of popular songs sang by multiple artists. Sometimes 30 seconds (the sample they let you hear) is not long enough, so the more specific info you have the better you will like that version
- Do check out their “Playlists” tab for inspiration. They have a fun mix already selected to make searching easier.
- To find a soundtrack for a movie type in the movie name, like “Sound of Music” and look under the Albums tab (the second from the left). If there are still too many options add “Sound of Music Soundtrack” and make sure you look under Albums. In some cases, I could not find the soundtrack if I included “sound track” or “movie”
WIN A Free Custom CD!!!
One lucky winner will win their own custom CD of up to 75 minutes of music tracks of your choice, custom cover art/message, free shipping and get ALL the music on all your devices. Just awesome!
