KidTunes: Rockabye Your Baby with Rock ‘n Roll
Rockabye Baby Music, publishers of classic lullaby collections that interpret Taylor Swift and Elvis Presley among other popular artists, are offering three new titles that appeal to a variety of rock tastes. The days of the wind-up teddy bear playing Brahm’s Lullaby are over; today’s infants want—nay, demand!—classic rock hits, and with Rockabye Baby! collections, the hits just keep on comin’.
The latest titles are Rockabye Baby! Lullaby Renditions of Weezer, Rockabye Baby! Lullaby Renditions of Bon Jovi, and Rockabye Baby! Lullaby Renditions of Pearl Jam. Long recommended as unique baby shower (or Christening, baby, and baby’s first birthday) gifts, Rockabye Baby! CDs are also ideal to set the tone for baby-related gatherings. Imagine that baby shower to the strains of Bon Jovi’s “Born to Be My Baby” or “(You Want to) Make a Memory.”
Put a little pizazz (is that still a word?) into Christening parties with a bit of Weezer; “The Good Life” and “Only in Dreams” seem appropriate. Hardcore Pearl Jam fans and doting grandparents alike will enjoy the Rockabye versions of “Even Flow” and “Daughter.” Not really “party down” music, Rockabye Baby! offers sweet, music-box-like, instrumental renditions of fan favorites. Perfect for cribtime, they gently rock babies to sleep and help parents relax after—or in the middle of—a day of diapers, feedings, colic, and crankiness (Mom and Dad’s or baby’s). And, let’s face it, they are so much more enjoyable than the mobile’s endless playing of “It’s a Small World After All.”
Rockabye Baby! Lullaby Renditions of Weezer and Rockabye Baby! Lullaby Renditions of Bon Jovi are each made up of twelve cuts, performed and produced by Andrew Bissell. The 13 tracks on Rockabye Baby! Lullaby Renditions of Pearl Jam are performed and produced by Jeffrey Miner.
Not having any tiny babies on which to experiment (nyah-ah-ah), I am only guessing that having Rockabye Baby! as a soundtrack to the hectic days families experience may make them a little less stressful. I’ll let you know the next time I have a baby.
