My house is a wreck and I am surprising SO by having it completely cleaned by the time he gets home.  I need some good cleaning music!  HELP!

I like all genres of music so any suggestions are welcome!

I grew up with my mom playing Linda Ronstadt's greatest hits volume 1 as our cleaning music.  I still use it.

I have a one hour mix that does the trick for me...

Includes several Simon and Garfunkel (Me & Julio Down by the School Yard, Cecilia, Kodachrome), Midnight Train to Georgia, Summer of 69, Mack the Knife, Santa Monica, Fall Down, Cadillac Cowboy (Chris LeDoux), Little Red Corvette, Why Have You Left the One You Left Me For, Sweet Caroline, Animal, Brave, Happy, Sittin' by the Dock of the Bay, Black Horse and the Cherry Tree

Yeah, I uh....like a lot of different stuff.

Igor Stravinsky "Rite of Spring"

Do you have the movie Fantasia? Put that in. :)

Alanis Morisette's "Jagged Little Pill" album is a good motivator... Or it might pi ss you off? Always a toss up there.

Old school Green Day.

Smashing Pumpkins

Anything upbeat by Garth Brooks

Neal Mccoy

The Lion King soundtrack

Pandora is your friend!

My mood dictates what I listen to.  Since I can only now clean with LO is sleeping, the music tends to be soft and soothing, which makes it difficult to get anything done!  My preference is 80's pop.

My mom always used to clean to Whitney Houston & Barbra Streisand . . . now anytime I feel compelled to clean.

Pandora.com

Create a station 'Lana del Rey' after that, they will do the rest.
