Rockabye Baby! Lullaby Renditions Of Radiohead
This right here is what's known as a 'capital idea' - I want to shake the hand of whoever thought of these. There is a series of these with music by groups like The Cure, Weezer and many others. My oldest was born the same year 'OK Computer' was released and I thought, even then, how wonderfully melodic it was and played it quite often when we were together (as in 'always') and he really enjoyed it. The blurb on their page says
"Rockabye Baby! transforms timeless rock songs into beautiful instrumental lullabies. The delicate sounds of the glockenspiel, vibraphone, and other instruments will lull your little one into a sweet slumber. These versions of Radiohead are sophisticated enough for people of all ages, but sweet enough to introduce your child to rock’s smartest band. Their album Kid A imagines the scope and power of music created by a newborn child. What will your baby dream about while drifting off to these serene interpretations of Radiohead’s best-loved songs?"
Please support these enterprising folks and purchase many of their discs - they are doing a great service.
