"Interesting" Lullaby Music For Baby

I recently stumbled onto Baby Rock Records. These guys have taken various rock tunes and turned them into lullabys for children. Now I consider myself to be pretty progressive but I admit to being somewhat surprised to find artists such as Nine Inch Nails, Kiss, Nirvana and Metallica among the offerings.

Look at the lyrics for Hurt:

I hurt myself today
To see if I still feel
I focus on the pain
The only thing that’s real
The needle tears a hole
The old familiar sting
Try to kill it all away
But I remember everything

I don’t know about you, but it just strikes me as being a little off for a lullaby. Although I have to admit that they have taken it to a different place. I Was Made For Lovin You by Kiss is actually kind of fun.

Maybe playing I Want To Be Sedated by The Ramones will make your baby cooler. I don’t know. What I can say is that since they offer the Stones I was disappointed not to see Gimme Shelter, that song just rocks.

    RR,

    That is true, it is fairly violent but it just doesn’t quite match NIN. Maybe it is because I grew up with it.

    Paula,

    Yes it is.

    Amishav,

    Good tip.

    Well, whatever you do, don’t try putting the baby to bed with “Shout it out Loud.”

    “I Wanna Be Sedated” is a mommybye!

    I’m laughing at the thought of “I Want to be Sedated” as a lullabye! I’ll have to check out that site, sounds like a hoot.

    Think about the classic lullabye- when the bough breaks, the cradle will fall, and down will come baby…cradle and all.

    Pretty violent if you think about it!
