The Beatles do Lullabies

Ever since Monkey Girl was bornshe slept in her own room (well, until she wakes up and decides she wants tosleep with us, lol).  We have always puther to sleep with classical music children’s CD’s.   I read a lot about child development andclassical music while pregnant, plus it soothes her to sleep.  However, many times she wants me to sing her lullabiesbefore she is put in her crib and since there are no words to the classicalmusic I end up singing one song while another is playing on the CD.

I was so excited when I read aboutBaby Blanket Music.  The distinctive BabyBlanket Music collection features unique lullaby arrangements of favorite songsfrom favorite artists.  The CD’s theyoffer includes music from Madonna, Michael Jackson, Elton John, Billy Joel,John Mayer, Simon and Garfunkel, Garth Brooks, and the Beatles.

Created in 2009 by Josh Rutt, a NewYork-based teacher, composer and performer, Baby Blanket Music was developedunder the guidance of a wide range of doctors, teachers and child developmentspecialists.  As his closest friendsbegan having children, Rutt carefully observed and participated in their babies’development.  He soon discovered thatthere was room for improvement in the quality of baby music that was currentlyavailable on the market.  As a result,Rutt set out to create a distinctive line of music designed to appeal tobabies, parents and grandparents alike. A lifelong student of music with a dynamic career focused on workingwith children, his development of Baby Blanket Music came naturally.
Designed to soothe while enhancingthe enjoyment and cognition of music, Baby Blanket Music features familiar babysounds like vibraphones and music boxes paired with a full medley of rich,classical instruments including strings, woodwinds, pianos, harps and softpercussion.  Together, these instrumentalarrangements create gentle textures that are calming and enjoyable to ears ofany age.

I love being able to sing along with the “classical music”that we have been able to play for Monkey Girl after I was sent the BeatlesBaby Blanket Music to review.   I didhowever realize quite quickly that I didn’t know a lot of the lyrics to myfavorite Beatles songs, but I just make them up as I go.  My favorite three songs are actually the lastthree on the CD – Here Comes the Sun, Let it Be, and Blackbird – and mostnights she is asleep long before then. Instead, she gets to hear me sing about how I get high with a littlehelp from my friends and how its been a hard days night and I’ve been workinglike a dog J
