Lullaby Search

Do you have recommendations for CDs that have good lullabies? There are zillions on Amazon and I’d prefer considering something personally recommended. I’d like to be able to sing along, and to learn some so I can sing whenever and wherever.

    Woo hoo! I’m first!
    Whoops, sorry about that.
    Anyway, I am a grandma and I have been playing two cds for my little grandkidlets. They are “Dream with Me Tonight”. One is sung by Melodie Crittenden and the other is sung by Gene Miller. It is nice to have one is a woman’s voice and one in a man’s voice. We do sing them during the morning, but when I play them in the afternoon they know that it is nap time and they settle right in.
    Hope you enjoy them!

    Here is the CD that I recommend in my book. They are classical instrumentals, not really lullabies, but they will soothe you to the bottom of your toes. They are full and rich and powerful. The words to your own lullabies will come to you too.
    Just wait and see.

    I made up a CD for our little one, although she was more than an infant. Soon as I find my list, I’ll clue you in.

    kathryn, I don’t have a recommendation for CD’s with lullabies but I can recommend Peter, Paul and Mary’s CD “Peter, Paul and Mommy” for when she gets a little older. Wonderful album.

    Not a cd, just a single song, a lullabye from Billy Joel’s cd titled “River of Dreams.” He wrote this lullabye for his daughter.

    Lullyabye (Good night my angel)

    Good night my angel time to close you eyes
    And save these questions for another day
    I think I know what you’ve been asking me
    I think you know what I’ve been trying to say

    I promised I would never leave you
    And you should always know
    Where ever you may go
    No matter where you are
    I never will be far away

    Good night my angel now it’s time to sleep
    And still so many things I want to say
    Remember all the songs you sang for me
    When we went sailing on an emerald bay

    And like a boat out on the ocean
    I’m rocking you to sleep
    The water’s dark and deep
    Inside this ancient heart
    You’ll always be a part of me

    Goodnight my angel now it’s time to dream
    And dream how wondeful your life will be
    Someday your child will cry and if you sing this lullaby
    Then in your heart there will always be a part of me

    Someday we’ll all be gone
    But lullabies go on and on
    They never die that’s how you and I will be.

    If you can find it to download online, do. Do, do, do.

    Whenever I hear it, I cry.

    I think it’d be a lovely, loving song to sing to a child.

    Controlled studies have shown that infants exposed to the works of Mozart do actually develop a more advanced mental capacity than those exposed to the alternative classical and “other” types of music. I give Mozart to all of my new grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

    More wonderful ideas. Thanks, folks. Also, Bill, if you happen to have citations or links to the studies, I’d be very interested in reading them!
