The Only Deployment Playlist You’ll Ever Need

[xyz-ips snippet=”Seth-Godin-Message”]


When John was deployed, I listened to a lot of music… and a lot of the same music over and over again. And I know I’m not alone. I put an all call out on Facebook and asked for deployment song suggestions– you know, the ones that speak to you, that you can’t get out of your head, that you just have to listen to.

Here’s what a group of milspouses and milsos– from all over the world, from all walks of life, and from all kinds of experiences– said. (By the way, this list is in no particular order. Every song is linked to Amazon so that you can easily listen for free if you have Amazon Prime, or purchase, if you want to download these ditties!) Enjoy!

Use these music suggestions to build a deployment playlist that inspires you.

Use these songs to create a killer deployment playlist.

Now you…

What songs do you listen to during deployment? What would you add to this list? Let me know in the comments!
