rockabye baby to green day
Baby M’s first concert was quite a loud one… Green Day. And while she may not have been old enough to fully respond to the music around her, I’d like to think that she heard just a little bit of the music that was floating around her.
That’s why we couldn’t help but buy a copy of Rockabye Baby: Green Day when we saw it in the baby store. Just imagine hearing “American Idiot” being played like a sweet lullaby… slow soothing music that your baby will calm down to almost instantly. So soothing in fact that we almost fell asleep driving the car home after popping it in the in-dash cd player. We’ll definitely be testing it out on the next car ride screaming match that we encounter.
So what other famous artists does Rockabye Baby cover in lullaby format? How about the Beatles, Bob Marley, U2, Metallica, Coldplay, Guns N’ Roses, Queen, Journey, Led Zeppelin, Radiohead, the Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, Smashing Pumpkins, Tool, No Doubt, the Eagles, Nirvana, and more! And if you don’t want the whole album, you can always pick and choose songs from itunes or amazon.com as well!
I’m pretty sure we’ll add a few more of these to our collection as time goes on… maybe Coldplay and the Rolling Stones will be next? Hmmm….
What artist’s songs would like to have turned into lullabies? I wouldn’t mind some Phil Collins/Genesis or 50 Cent or Spice Girls?? ;)
Coldplay, Pink Floyd, and Tool are my favorites :)
I need to get Metallica and Nirvana for Jay!
I bought the Rockabye Baby ‘Best Of’ cd at Starbucks a few weeks ago and LOVE it (and I never thought I’d say that about anything Guns N’ Roses).
Thank you for posting this!!! My Mom and I are die hard Led Zeppelin fans, and since I’m 10 weeks pregnant, she’ll be too overjoyed to buy this for our future bundle of joy!
