Every night without fail, while I am singing lullabies to Gabriella, she belts out the words with me.
Pointless, right? I know, but super cute!
She acts like lullabies with lyrics are party songs, and "night-night" time is a karaoke festival, which totally defeats my purpose of singing to her! In her mind, she's probably thinking, "Pump up the jam!"
Gabby loves to sing!
What's wrong with that? Nothing. I actually don't mind. I love that she has been given the gift of song, and will really be excited if she remembers all the words to every song like her grandmother (who could win The Singing Bee show hands down), because I can hardly remember any lyrics...ever!
It would be nice to play a song that she just listens to and falls right asleep though.
Recently, I had the opportunity to review the coolest new lullaby CD's available, with no lyrics!
These CD's really do "ROCK", pun intended!
Cradle Rock, is a series of children's lullaby albums, created and produced by Brash Music and Tree Top Records. The albums are instrumental covers of original records by well known recording artists, such as Michael Jackson, Kenny Chesney, and Johnny Cash.
Each song is beautifully recorded as an instrumental version of the most popular records using vibraphones, glockenspiels, and mellotrons that lull babies to sleep to our favorite songs of yesteryear and today.
The wonder of these albums is that babies and small children are being introduced to the awesome music that we love, in the form of "non-traditional" lullabies.
Not only is baby enjoying listening to the music, but parents will enjoy the CD's just as much.
Hubby started rocking Gabby to sleep to John Mayer (one of our favorite recording artists) at about two months of age, and to this day, she loves to hear John Mayer's music as much as we do. I am hoping that one day his music will be available as a lullaby for me.
Isn't this something we all could use? An instrumental version of our favorite music that we can all relax to!
These CD's are fun for bedtime, nap time, for car rides, and just for background music at home. They really can be enjoyed anywhere, anytime!
“Parents will appreciate that Cradle Rock keeps melodic structure
and tempos in tact. Moms and dads write us saying they can sing
right along to Cradle Rock while rocking baby to sleep.”
Steve Jones, CEO of Brash Music
Coming soon to Cradle Rock's collection are songs by: The Black Eyed Peas, U2, Eagles, Pink Floyd, and Carrie Underwood!
