If you know anyone with kids, you might be familiar with the Rockabye Baby record collection. Rockabye Baby takes bands ranging from Nine Inch Nails to the Smashing Pumpkins to the Cure and gives their music the lullaby treatment. It’s an innovative way for hip parents to start passing their musical taste onto their progeny at a young age. Now, Rockabye Baby is ready to tackle our beloved Britpoppers Blur. From the Independent:
Want your baby to appreciate the rocking majesty of Blur’s “Song 2”, but are worried you might scare them? Help is at hand. The US company Rockabye Baby has created an album of the band’s greatest hits, including “Parklife”, “Country House” and “Beetlebum”, in soothing lullaby versions for parents to play “during those long night feeds”.
To get a feel for the Rockabye Baby style, check out their version of the Cure’s “Just Like Heaven:”
What other Britpop bands would you like to see receive the Rockabye Baby treatment? Personally, I think an album of Gene songs re-imagined as lullabies would be pretty cool.
