Lullabies for Zora

Erik and I were convinced that good lullaby music was already present in our pre-Zora music collection. Here’s a partial list of “lullabies” I compiled for her this week:

Oh, Bury Me Not (Johnny Cash)

When You Dream (Barenaked Ladies)

Adoramus Te (Beth Nielsen Chapman) (Zora’s current favorite–she likes the resonant alto and bass voices)

Hymn (Jars of Clay)

The Long Day Is Over (Norah Jones)

Grace (U2)

Ice Cream (Sarah McLachlan)

We’d love more suggestion for music to add to the list!

    How about Dixie Chicks “Godspeed” off their Home album (do you have that)? It’s really being sung to a boy….but I don’t think Z will know the difference ;)

    WHY did that big smiley face appear with my message? That is very disturbing……

  3. Erica Says:

    “Godspeed” is already on the list, as well as “Lullaby” from their new album. (I didn’t list them because they seemed like such obvious choices.)

    Dad claims, by the way, that she’s a country music fan because she responded well to the selections from “O Brother, Where Art Thou” on her “fun music” playlist, especially “Keep on the Sunny Side of Life.” (We also put the orignal version of “Big Rock Candy Mountain” on there so that we can all look forward to her singing the orignal lyrics, featuring such child-friendly things like “dogs with rubber teeth,” “cigarette trees” and “whiskey springs.”)

    The Innocence Mission’s “Now the Day is Over” is an album of lullabies.
    beautiful stuff.

  5. Erica Says:

    Already got that, too, Steve. (As an added plus, they’re Canadian, right?)
