Rock Song Lullabies For Your Baby

Rockabye Baby! Lullaby Renditions of Aerosmith

Rockabye Baby! Lullaby Renditions of U2I can’t believe the news today
Oh, I can’t close my eyes
And make it go away
–From U2 and Sunday Bloody Sunday


Rock Song Lullabies Galore!

Rockabye Baby features a line of CDs that transform popular rock songs into lullaby music for babies and parents (even grandparents). (Digital downloads are also available.) I can’t think of a better gift for expectant moms and dads – especially Gen Xers who have that strong and early bend toward nostalgia.

Rock lullabies by NirvanaI was like a kid in a candy store selecting a CD to review. They have renditions of 25 artists including many Gen X favorites like U2, Aerosmith, Black Sabbath and most recently Journey. On October 26, they release lullaby renditions of Nirvana. The lullabies are all instrumentals, so you don’t have to worry about lyrics that might be inappropriate for children.

I chose U2. The day it arrived in the mail I played it for my preschoolers on the way home from school. Usually, the short drive home is wrought with lots of drama. They beg for ice cream, complain that they have to pee and pinch each other at least 50 times. It’s really fun! But, when they got in the car, the lullaby rendition of U2’s Sunday Bloody Sunday was playing and it had a calming effect on them. I swear, I’m not making this up. They were literally quiet during the 16-block drive home. Mellotrons, vibraphones and bells will do it you every time. =)

Rockabye Baby! Lullaby Renditions of Guns n' Roses Later that night, I played the CD on the Super Bridgy’s Hello Kitty CD player. It was wonderful putting her to bed to lullaby renditions of songs I listened to during some of the most treasured years of my life. I sat in her soft pink rocking chair and reflected on the passage of so many years and was reminded of how blessed I am at this time in my life to have this precious, chubby 3-year-old who still sleeps in a baby bed, wears pull-ups at night and [catastrophe of all catastrophes] still begs for a bottle at bedtime. Best of all, she’s still little enough to rock to sleep.

Finally, Rockabye Baby has a community poll up that asks who they should rockabye next. Lynard Skynard? Beyonce? Rush? I voted for Rush (currently receiving the most votes), but I really want them to rockabye The River.
