Cut cuddle and be Cute

Mobility/Guide Dog training Soundtrack

Updated with one song I thought of, and to suggest that you check out the comments.

I think it would be a good idea to put together a soundtrack for mobility or Guide Dog training. Here are just a few songs I'd suggest.

  1. The Way: Fast Ball

  2. Where were they Going Without Ever Knowing The Way?

  3. Walk the Line: Johny Cash (especially for those times when you need to parallel traffic.)
  4. Midnight Train To Georgia: Gladys Knight and the Pips (especially for night routes or public transportation practice).
  5. Sound of Music: From the movie of the same name (When you need extra rural practice)

  6. The Hills Are Alive With The Sound of Music

  7. I Can See Clearly Now: Johnny Nash (For obstacle clearance practice, or the most sadistic of sighted mobility instructors)

  8. I can see clearly now the rain is gone. I can see all obstacles in my way.

  9. Help The Beatles (When learning to get assistance, or in need of clarification from your instructor)

  10. Country Roads: John Denver (for sidewalkless practice)
  11. Takin' Care of Business: Bachman - Turner Overdrive (Leash Relieving)
  12. Nothin' But The Tail Lights: Clint Black (The drop off route)
  13. Just a Closer Walk with Thee When you need reminders to "follow your dog."

Alright, now it's your turn. What do you think fits? If you have other suggestions, add them to the comments. If possible, give the title of the song and the author/performer. If it's not obvious from the title, add a snippet of the song to justify your choice. Finally, if you need clarification on something I suggested, ask. If you're still totally confused about mobility, let me know.
