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

- Fat Bottomed Girls
- Killer Queen
- We Are The Champions

- Crazy Little Thing Called Love
- You’re My Best Friend
- Somebody To Love
- Radio Ga Ga

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?
