Friday Fun Find: Rockabye Baby!

{Rockeabye Baby! Lullaby Renditions...not just for babies anymore} 

When is the last time you heard a lullaby? And no, the sound of New York City/D.C./LA traffic doesn’t count. Douche.

For me, it was yesterday. And then before yesterday, it was the day before that. And so on. Do I have a baby that I’ve neglected to tell you about up to this point? Hahahahahahahaha!! Me, as a mom?! Hi, have we met? I’m selfish and this is Kyle.

Nope, no baby on board. Just rocking out to the lullaby rendition of Kanye West’s “Gold Digger” and head banging to the lullaby version of Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit.” Stay with me now.

Rockabye Baby is a music label that takes all your rock, heavy metal, hip-hop, and punk favorites and boils them down into soothing and sweet lullabies! So now, even your infant can be cool. And while I’m sure many a baby will doze off to the Land of Nod, it also makes a fantastic Spotify playlist for the working adult. I don’t know about you, but I’m not sure I can get away with blasting Axl Rose’s wails of...

“Welcome to the jungle we take it day by day
If you want it you're gonna bleed but it's the price to pay
And you're a very sexy girl that's very hard to please
You can taste the bright lights but you won't get there for free
In the jungle welcome to the jungle 
Feel my, my, my serpentine
Ooh, I want to hear you scream” work. However, when set to the sound of chirping birds, triangles, and xylophones, the effect is not only work appropriate, but work NECESSARY! My only critique is that they have yet to release their Lady Gaga album…

Even though I’ve been listening to Rockabye Baby albums for the past year or so, I felt compelled to share it with my Cupcult, making any of the 4 dozen albums my Friday Fun Find of the week. You can buy Rockabye Baby on iTunes or you can listen for free on Spotify. Start with these:
  • D’Yer Mak’er – Lullaby Renditions of Led Zeppelin
  • God Only Knows – Lullaby Renditions of The Beach Boys
  • Tonight, Tonight – Lullaby Renditions of Smashing Pumpkins
  • Gold Digger - Lullaby Renditions of Kanye West
  • Under Pressure - Lullaby Renditions of Queen
  • It’s a Long Way to the Top - Lullaby Renditions of AC/DC
  • Human Behavior - Lullaby Renditions of Bjork
  • Welcome to the Jungle - Lullaby Renditions of Guns N’ Roses
Any other Rockabye Baby fans out there? Which album is your favorite??

It's funny because FB has notified me daily of your Spotify listenings, and I was always curious about Rockabye Baby. I was like, MELISSA? What? No. Now I get it. Rock on sister friend.

I didn't know they came out with a Kanye one! When P was a babe we listened to the Coldplay one all the time.
