The Chemo Cocktail Soundtrack

I don’t know if you know it or not, but my book Shaken Not Stirred… a Chemo Cocktail (which is now available on Amazon and Kindle) actually has a soundtrack. It’s not exactly on iTunes or anything—yet. But stay tuned for the iMix, which will be my links of love, gratitude, acknowledgement, and thanks to all the artists who don’t even know it, but they pretty much sang me through cancer and chemo. That’s what I call taking a sad song and making it better, better, BETTER! So I hope you’ll check out the songs and artists that are on my chemo cocktail soundtrack as soon as it’s shaken up and yes, even stirred, on iTunes.

In the meantime, here is my chemo cocktail mix, with YouTube links to most of the songs. The “Cancer is a Bitch” Song and “Wind in My Hair” are by The Kicked-in Fence aka my Redheads, and are not up on YouTube—yet. But we are filming/recording this weekend at the book launch events at Book Bums and Art Design Consultants Fine Art Gallery, so they should be uploaded soon. And I will link to them here ASAP. (By the way, if you are reading this, then consider yourself invited to either of the book launch parties. RSVP’s would be groovy, so Mike can have enough Grog on tap at Book Bums and because there will be cocktails and light apps at the gallery in the sky.)
