5 Songs Kate Middleton Should Put on her Pregnancy Playlist (LISTEN)

Kate Middleton is reportedly assembling a playlist to welcome her first-born child into the world that includes both tranquil and chart-topping numbers.
According to E! News, the soon-to-be mom is using her excess time of rest and relaxation to put together a list of songs to play for the baby royal. So far, the list consists of classical choices to soothe her during labor, in addition to some tracks by Bruno Mars, Calvin Harris and Of Monsters and Men.
What might be the expectant parent's ultimate playlist for the delivery room? Only those allowed in will know for sure. But we've taken a stab at some potential ballads that could grace her MP3 player. Here are five songs Kate Middleton might put on her 'Baby's Comin'!' list of jams.
1. "Mother's Little Helper" by The Rolling Stones
Okay, so we hope that Middleton isn't a pill-popping mother who says life is a "drag, getting old," as Mick Jagger croons in this 1966 track. But "Mother's Little Helper" does more than just tell the story of a bored housewife-it also gives some serious social commentary that even the Duchess of Cambridge could roll with.
2. "A Song For Mama" by Boyz II Men
Leave it up to 90s R&B group Boyz II Men to write a great song about the most exemplary child-bearer on earth. Let's hope Middleton lives up to be the kind of mom that will "always be around". She's already got the "queen of hearts" part down.
3. "Mother" by John Lennon
Even though this classic Lennon track off of his "Plastic Ono Band" solo album is a bleak, heart-wrenching tale of near-orphanage, the beauty that lies in its arrangement and lyrics are enough to warrant giving "Mother" a spot on the Pregnancy Playlist. Plus, John Lennon was doing punk before he even knew it on this album-check out the guttural cries with which he closes this song.
4. "Mama I'm Coming Home" by Ozzy Osbourne
Ozzy wrote this song for his wife, Sharon, but it's still sweet and decent enough for Middleton to play for her child. Even kids can't deny Ozzy's throaty voice and power-ballad style shredding.
5. And of course, "God Save the Queen" by the Sex Pistols
God Save the Queen, because she is a human being. Good luck with labor, and we mean it, man!
