Rockabye Baby…..Really??

Before our baby was born, I was on the hunt for music to play to the tiny lady while still swimming around inside my wife’s stomach (yes, I know babies don’t really grow in stomachs).  I found an article somewhere about the Rockabye Baby series of discs, which consists of some of the more popular songs from mainly alternative and/or rock bands re-recorded as lullabies.

I downloaded a couple songs from each of a few albums to give them a listen, not knowing exactly what to expect.  What did I find?? These albums are crazy good. …and not just for kids.  I find myself listening to them even when my daughter is not around. Whoever came up with this idea is a damned genius. They are basically just lo-fi instrumental versions of hits from some of the best bands out there now and from back in music history.  You can choose from Metallica, Coldplay, Tool, The Cure, Smashing Pumpkins, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Bjork….etc, etc.  Click on the link above to see all 25 albums available.  My favorite by far is the Radiohead album.  It’s almost as if these songs were originally written with the intent to be lullabies.

Don’t have a baby? It doesn’t matter, I promise you won’t be disappointed.
