Whistle (or Sing Along) While You Work


We think it’s fun to have music playing while we’re cooking and getting dinner ready. In “The Family Dinner” book, we asked some of our favorite rock & roll girlfriends what they listen to while they’re making dinner. Here’s what a few of them said:

CAROLE KING: “It wasn’t easy to settle on a top five, but the CDs below are definitely among my favorites, and you might enjoy them while rolling out a pie crust.”

That’s the Way of the World, by Earth Wind & Fire
Continuum, by John Mayer
The E.N.D., by The Black Eyed Peas
The Best of James Taylor
Speak for Yourself, by Imogen Heap

SHERYL CROW: “I’m always listening to music! When I cook, I might put on any one of these.”

Greatest Hits by Al Green
Back to Black, by Amy Winehouse
Madame Butterfly, by Giacomo Puccini
Tea for the Tillerman, by Cat Stevens
Tumbleweed Connection, by Elton John

NANCY WILSON: “Growing up, music and dinner went hand in hand at my house. It still does.”

Ronroco, by Gustavo Santaolalla
Blue Incantation, by Sanjay Mishra
Ingenue, by k.d. Lang
Together through Life, by Bob Dylan
Harvest Moon, by Neil Young
Baby Guitars, by Nancy Wilson (Nancy says: “I’m throwing this one in. I made it to help babies fall asleep to, but it’s also a really nice dinner thing!”)
