I want to love you....


I recently got my hands on some cds from Cradle Rock and I have to tell you, I love these! When M is stressed out or crying, the fastest way to cheer her up is to play some music that she likes and these definitely did the trick today on our way to Target. I popped in our Thrillaby disc filled with Michael Jackson songs and we were on our way.

There are no words on these cds, the iconic songs have been turned into lullabies, but even with the different instruments, you can still clearly tell which song is which. I have to tell you, P.Y.T. is still my favorite Michael Jackson song, even in lullaby form. I love the artwork on the album covers, too.

In the cradle rock series, soothing sounds from instruments such as the vibraphone, glockenspiel and mellotron are used to create the lullabies. It's actually really cool sounding.

Cradle Rock currently has 3 cds available - Thrillaby (Michael Jackson), No Shoes, No Diaper... Might be a Problem (Kenny Chesney) and I Crawl the Line (Johnny Cash). Soon, however, they will be releasing cds featuring the Eagles, Black Eyed Peas, U2, Carrie Underwood & Pink Floyd. You can hear clips of the songs from their current albums on their website. I also suggest checking out their Facebook page & Twitter.

Cradle Rock is distributed by The Warner Music Group and available on digital distribution services like iTunes ($9.99) and at music retail outlets across the United States ($11.98).
