Baby Lullaby Songs that Won’t Drive You Crazy

A frustrated woman

Sounds impossible doesn’t it? Lullabies are a great way to get babies to sleep. But when you’ve heard them over and over and over and over you start to want to pull your hair out.

What if you could put your baby to bed listening to music you like? Like Aerosmith, Kanye West, Queen, Black Sabbath, The Beattles, Nirvana, Elvis, Metallica, Bon Jovi, Bruce Springsteen, Davie Bowie, Elton John, Green Day and whoever else you may like to listen to.

Sounds pretty impossible doesn’t it? Not with Rockabye Baby. They’ve adapted all your favorite songs from your favorite artists into lullaby form.

All those artists I mentioned above are included in the lullaby renditions. And there are so many more.

Queen Rendition

My sister bought us a box of five CDs. The one we listen to most is Queen. Mostly because all the others are in the car, and I’m too lazy to bother switching the CDs.

The playlist of the Queen Rendition is as follows:

  1. Bohemian Rhapsody
  2. Another One Bites the Dust
  3. Under Pressure
  4. We Will Rock You
  5. Fat Bottomed Girls
  6. Killer Queen
  7. We Are The Champions
  8. Bicycle Race
  9. Crazy Little Thing Called Love
  10. You’re My Best Friend
  11. Somebody To Love
  12. Radio Ga Ga

My husband considers it blasphemy that We Are The Champions is not played right after We Will Rock You, but I don’t hold it against them.

Here is Rockaby Baby’s Rendition of We Will Rock You:

Since Sara sleeps in our room, we listen to these songs when we go to bed too. It always makes for interesting intimacy when songs like We Will Rock You start playing.

Animated

On Rockabye Baby’s Youtube Channel, they have a few animations for some songs.

Here’s one for Poker Face by Lady Gaga:

Great for the Car

The first time I played these CDs was in the car. Sara was being super fussy and inconsolable. My husband and I remembered we had these CDs and tried them out.

It worked. We popped Guns and Roses in, and she chilled out.

A sleeping baby

And it’s worked every time since then. Sometimes she’ll still do a little whining, but it’s no where near the screaming and screeching without the music.

Where to Find

Everywhere. Spotify. Youtube. Amazon. And those are just the places I’ve looked. I enjoy having a real CD to play. My husband uses Spotify, but I don’t.

Using a CD player is low hassle for naps and bedtime. All I have to do is press play.

Price

It ranges from $10 to $25:

From left to right, the CDs are:

  • Good Day, Goodnight: The 5 Year Anniversary Compilation
    Limited Edition (2 CDs)
  • Bob Marley
  • David Bowie
  • Red Hot Chili Peppers

These are the prices new, but used options for cheaper are also available.

Bonus for Amazon Prime members, you get to stream some for free! I literally did not know that until just now from grabbing the Amazon links. Queen and Red Hot Chili Peppers are two examples of ones available for free, unlimited streaming

Not Much More to Say

This is a short post, but what else can I say? These are songs you already know and love adapted for your little one to enjoy.

What are your thoughts? Have you tried these songs out? Are you excited to get some and try them out? How crazy have normal lullabies driven you?

Oh that’s pretty cool – I really can’t believe that there’s a lullaby version of Queen’s top hits, brilliant! 

When my four year old was younger, we tried all the lullabies we could find on him but he was only ever interested in the Welsh lullabies…which was hard on me…as my welsh language level is not what it should be (yes I’m Welsh). Anyway, for some reason the bright welsh wordings calmed him down.

This is interesting, I thought music will prevent baby from sleeping because of the sound. Never knew there are song that can make babies sleep. 

I am going to try it out. Even though I don’t have some of the songs mentioned in this article at the moment. I can still lay hands on similar songs may it can make my little boy sleep on time.

This may be a short post but it is absolutely amazing! It was just a matter of time before someone had this brainwave and made lullabies from the classics. I know some people will be rolling on the floor in a puddle of tears because someone dared to touch “their” classics but you will only know the struggle when you have gone through it. Baby shark is great but after a while it can really get to you, especially when you are sleep deprived and easily aggravated. I think these cds are great for babies to get some variety in… Read more »

Hi Nicole,

The truth did not know that there were baby songs, different bands, and soloists. 

I have a sister with her 3-month-old daughter who is not having a great time at night. 

I will contact her to ask her which ones she prefers before making the purchase. 

Also, listen to your videos and the truth is that your music is wonderful for our babies. 

Thank you for giving me such a valuable product. Regards!Claudio

Great post and good info. 

Me and my wife love lullabies, so it will be hard for us to drive us crazy however, it can happen. 

So it is nice to see your post, we will bookmark these songs if it happens that we are driven crazy by the ones we have now. 

Thanks for sharing it with us, it can prevent us going crazy.

That sounds like a godsend for parents looking for a way to calm their children without the need to get a lullaby stuck in your head.  There are only so many, and so many times you can take.

Nice to see they are offering your favourite songs in this format.  Tell me, was there any that worked better than others? My niece is struggling to settle, so it might help?

thanks

Hahaha I love that catchy title, because it drives my CRAZY!! You are a genius! Why aren’t us all think of that? I dig Queen lullaby, just saw the Bohemian Rhapsody, it was amazing and because of that I put my pandora back to Queen station again. Will share this to all my friends, 2 of them are expecting in April 🙂 Great post!

Ha ha ha, I never knew these existed until I found your post – quite amazing – I used to play white noise which was quite effective.

Do any of them come with vocals, or are they all just music? I think it would be cool if young children leant the words to some appropriate songs, just as they do with lullaby’s.

This is so funny! I like reading stuff like this it expands my mind. To think they can make Queen or Lady Gaga into a lullaby for babies at 31 years of age in my infancy that was probably unheard of. 

Again I loved reading this post it is so informative and gives me some ideas, since I don’t have a baby maybe I can use these to lure myself to sleep?

Wow, I had no idea that there lullaby renditions of classic rock songs. This would have been great when we were raising our kids. The repeated lullabies and kid songs can drive anyone crazy after hearing them for the thousanth time. I would have loved to get some Bon Jovi lullabies. This would have been perfect. I will keep this in mind though when we have grandkids. It will be a great gift for my oldest daughter when she has children, and it will have the added bonus of not driving us crazy with lullabies.
