Not kiddy/baby music...Something esoteric, calm, soothing, instrumental or lyrical, English or not...

Something that will calm/sooth a baby and still be enjoyable to myself...

Gregorian chants, violin, slow guitar strumming, interesting foreign vocals

Scottish harper Catriona MacKay would probably fit the bill.  I'd guess most irish/scottish harp would be good though.

ETA:  English singer Kate Rusby would be nice too.

Lullaby by Steven Lynch.

The baby will like the singing, you'll like the lyrics. Try not to wake the kid up by laughing too hard.

When my daughters were collicky, fussy or just plain couldn't get to sleep,
the only music that would fix it was Niel Young's "Unplugged".


My personal favorite is "Wish you were here."

How about classical set to ocean sounds? Like Bach's Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring?

I have that. It is one of my faves. I bought it for labor, but it was too short for music.  I still listen to it.

My kids grew up listening to Ozzy. I used to put a speaker near the wife's belly playing Ozzy to familiarize them before they were born.

Hey ZipperPig, send me a address and I will try to find, and send you a copy of something like this:

http://www.crazybabyclothing.com/rock-lullaby-cds-c-34.html

I'm pretty sure that I have a mix CD of these that someone gave me for my kiddos.  I can also send you some of the kids classical stuff I think I still have.

Rammstein might help.



if not that, you may want to try Enigma:

Sadness

Return To Innocence



I don't have sound on this computer, but I'm pretty sure these are the songs I'm thinking of.
