Okay, not really, but we do like U2! My husband has been to every major US tour since he was old enough to go to concerts on his own. Together we've been to 3 concerts, including the most recent with Baby Jack in the belly. Our wedding song was All I Want is You/I've Got You Under My Skin (duet with Frank Sinatra) and Hubby used to have this
Rockabye Baby takes popular music like U2, Coldplay, Bob Marley and even Metallica and creates instrumental lullabies using the glockenspiel, vibraphone, mellotron and others. (Yes, I had to google those to see what they all are, click on the name for wikipedia's description.)
According to their website Rockabye Baby! "was born of the need to make children's music cool--not only for babies but for their parents too."
I really enjoy this CD. It's calm and easy to have on while Jack and I are playing. Sometimes I realize that it's U2 songs, sometimes it just nice, non-annoying, child-friendly background music. I have to admit that some of the music I listened to pre-Jack does not have the most child friendly lyrics. With this CD I never have to worry about that.
When I first heard about this series of albums I was skeptical. Why not just play the actual music for your children? And we do. But sometimes the original music is too "rocking" for what we are doing. Our Rockabye Baby CD is a calmer, quieter version. We don't use it for bed time, but we do use it for quiet play time. And even the cable guy thought it was cool.
