We have been listening to Black Sabbath in the kids’ room for a month now. It helps them sleep. What, all parents don’t think of Black Sabbath as soothing, good-for-sleeping music? I honestly would NEVER have thought to include Black Sabbath on my list of soothing nursery friendly music, but now that we’ve got the Rockabye Baby CD I have to say, its definitely one to consider. Rockabye takes the familiar to many tunes and tones the volume WAY down (this is Black Sabbath we’re talking about, here!) and adds in “vibraphones” and bells…the folks at Rockabye have literally turned Sabbath Bloody Sabbath into sleepytime music- and done it well!!
If you’ve not yet heard of Rockabye Baby
, this is what they do. They take all kinds of music from famous bands and musicians and turn it into melodic masterpieces. What a FUN gift for someone who’s passionate about a certain band or big music lovers at a Baby Shower!! The fact that it is actually soothing and calming is superb- this can actually, I think, take the place of our noise machine!! And, its way more fun to say “Oh, yes. My baby listens to Black Sabbath (or Elvis, Beach Boys, Aerosmith, U2, or Smashing Pumpkins…and more). “
You can buy or download Rockabye Baby- Lullaby Renditions of Black Sabbath
online, or Amazon
, or on iTunes. They also have some cute onesies. Hopefully they’ll take my advice on their poll (see the website) and do the Beastie Boys next!!
