Rockabye Baby! Lullaby Renditions of Queen Tired of “Twinkle Twinkle”? Yearning for an alternative to Brahms? The latest CD from the “Rockabye Baby!” rock and roll line is out and this one features the musical stylings of … Queen. If you’re worried that a little “We Are the Champions” will amp up the bedtime tantrums, fret not. We just listened to this CD and it sounds like Queen on Quaaludes – all vibraphones, mellotrons and mellowness. It’s actually kind of a kick. Not what you’d listen to on a solo road trip, but certainly something to soothe the savage toddler. And it can be yours! The CD, we mean, not the savage toddler. All you have to do is click “Comments” and tell us about your family’s favorite bedtime ritual. We’ll draw a winner’s name next Monday.

(Congrats, by the way, to Cindi, who won last week’s “113 Things to Do by 13″!)

    Sounds great for every member of the family who
    could use some calming down before bedtime!
    I am an imsomniac most of the time.
    Please add my name into your drawing hat.
    Thanks very much….. Cindi

    Does it still sound recognizably like queen though for the majority of the songs?

    I listened to the Ramone’s samples on Amazon and didn’t like what I heard. We bought the Beach Boys and the Cure Rockabye Baby CDs and like those both very much. The song selection just seems to suit the style better.

    Well, I listened to “We are the Champions” and “Bohemian Rhapsody” and the songs were definitely recognizable. Then I took a nap…:-)

    Sounds great — my five-year-old loves to listen to music when he’s falling asleep. Count me in.
