From the cradle: Albums transform songs to lullabies

A company has recently come to my attention that has cornered the market in what could be the first rock- (and reggae) to-lullabies CDs out there.

Rockabye Baby! takes classic songs from a wide array of artists and rearranges them as lullabies. Each album is about $17 and might just be the perfect baby shower gift for the expecting music lover.

Parents may also enjoy these tracks as they rock the cradle!

Here's a few of the many of samples:

Speak to Me/Breathe — Pink Floyd

Wherever I May Roam — Metallica (possibly a little too dark)

Stir it Up — Bob Marley

Clocks — Coldplay

Artists include: AC/DC, The Beach Boys, The Beatles, Björk, Bob Marley, Christmas Rock Classics, Coldplay, The Cure, The Eagles, Green Day, Led Zeppelin, Metallica, Nine Inch Nails, Nirvana, No Doubt, Pink Floyd, Pixies, Queens of the Stone Age, Radiohead, The Ramones, The Rolling Stones, Smashing Pumpkins, Tool and U2.
