View Full Version : Rockabye Baby!

The other week I was making a delivery at a baby's / children's furniture store and was getting a signature by the front desk. I happen to notice they have a small CD display, and I recognized one cover from Coldplay. A closer look reveals that it, and all the CD's in the display, are lullaby versions of these bands. It was then I realized that the song I was hearing was the lullaby version of Stairway to Heaven. I ended up buying the Radiohead version then, and ordering U2, which I've since gotten but haven't listened to yet.

They make lullaby versions of ...
Pink Floyd
the Cure
Bob Marley
Led Zep
No Doubt
Queens of the Stone Age
Smashing Pumpkins
the Pixies
Beach Boys
the Eagles
Nine Inch Nails (wonder what Closer sounds like?)
The Ramones
Green Day
Black Sabbath
Rolling Stones

Coming soon...
Kanye West
Stevie Wonder
David Bowie
White Stripes
and more...

I've heard of these before, and I'm not sure what to make of them. Is it introducing babies to this music so they can appreciate it early, is it for parents who would rather listen to vaguely familiar music that they like, or is it just a degradation of otherwise great music? I'm not sure.

You can bet your *** my kids will grow up listening to Pink Floyd and Queen, though.
