Music Monday: Relax and Wax

What is worse than a chest wax? …A bikini wax. What’s worse than a bikini wax? A bikini wax with no music to keep keep you calm and fully sidetracked. We asked our Twitter Followers and Facebook Friends, “What songs calm your nerves?” and we got some serious soothing suggestions. We think our friend, Kim M. hit the hair on the head with her comment:

 

“Normally anything by Enigma but for a bikini wax play some Metallica or Rammstein to drown out my screaming.”

Don’t worry Kim, along with some relaxing slow jams, we peppered in some heavy metal at the end including Linkin Park’s “Numb” (haha) for all you screamers out there!Get a playlist!Standalone playerGet Ringtones
