Evacuation Playlist

It's funny, the playlist started out as a joke. Mike started singing "Leaving on a Jet Plane" and "Evacuate the Dance Floor" as a joke when we found out this was happening.  I included it and asked for suggestions at the end of an email I sent to my family and friends explaining the news because I thought it would help lighten the mood. The response was insane! I would get emails that were like "Glad you're safe.  Here are TEN songs I've spent the last hour brainstorming." HA!  I see where the priorities are.  Just kidding! Mike and I had so much fun hearing everyone's suggestions.  Even though I never actually made a playlist to listen to, I figured I would compile the complete list so everyone could enjoy!  If you have any more to add, leave suggestions in the comments box or send them my way!
