Rockabye Baby! Lullaby Renditions Giveaway

Filed Under: Reviews/Giveaways

Music is an important part of my life; it always has been.

I attended my first concert when I was four. James Taylor. Apparently I forced Mom to spend the majority of the concert in the bathroom with me.[1] Even though I don’t have a record player, I still can’t bring myself to get rid of my Thriller album. I was in choir and band.

I like music.

And while Tucker wasn’t a choir or band dork,[2] music means just as much to him as it does me and we’re determined to pass that love onto Cara and Ollie. But some of the music we like doesn’t have what one would consider “kid friendly” lyrics. AC/DC, anyone?

When I got the pitch to review Rockabye Baby! Lullaby Renditions of Weezer, Tucker and I combed over the site and kept laughing as we saw band after band we liked and then we’d listen to the lullaby version and giggle. Tucker admitted he was glad he hadn’t known about the site when the kids were babies since he would have spent way too much money on lullaby CDS.

Their newest CD is of Weezer and cracks me up big time cause it’s like they took a big ole lion and turned it into a house cat.

Here’s the original:

And here’s the lullaby version:

I love what they’ve done with the Weezer CD and while it’s not all “rocky” like the real Weezer, the kids think it’s cool and I like they’ve kept the essence of the songs but have pulled them down enough that you can listen to it while you’re trying to go to sleep. I guess that’s why they’re called lullabies, right?

*Updated to add the two winners: Nicole L. and Paul Fuertes. I’m emailing them right now. Congrats, y’all!*

  1. [1]Sorry, Mom.
  2. [2]He did play trumpet for a bit but don’t tell anyone cause he would lose street cred.


  1. Dude most definitely Kanye, especially if I can hear the beat instead of him whining about formal education. THIS IS FAB. I love the idea, my second pick would be the Eagles, because I am deep like that. Oh my gosh or Elvis? Yeah maybe Elvis. No….. Crap I dont know. FAB. I know that much.

  2. I can’t choose just one! Don’t you know how decision challenged I am?? Personally, I would most likely pick Bon Jovi but since I’m entering this contest to win the album for my sister (who I hope blesses ME with a niece or nephew soon) I will say Weezer because that is her and her husband’s favorite band.

  3. I think it would have to be The Ramones, but you know what I wish was in this list? The Violent Femmes, ’cause that would be hawt.

  4. Well, I guess I would HAVE to pick U2, since “The Sweetest Thing” was playing in the delivery room when my baby girl was born. 🙂 (That, and I already have Rockabye Baby!’s Aerosmith, Kanye West & The Beatles)

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  5. I would choose More The Beatles. We have The Beatles but more sounds fun! I love Rockabye baby!!! :O) So does my little boy!

  10. PAUL FUERTES says:

    I am enjoying the Beatles one right now, and I’d definitely like to rock to the NIN one! Ooh, or Radiohead. Or Black Sabbath. Or Tool. Or Ramones… So many choices! Our little girl is due in a few weeks, and I can’t make just one! I’ll stick with my favorite band (and Academy Award winner) NIN.


  11. PAUL FUERTES says:
  12. What to choose. What to choose. At the moment, I would pick Bon Jovi.

  13. It’s a tough choice, but I’d probably go with Radiohead.

  20. I’d pick The Cure, but my DH is looking over my shoulder telling me to pick The Ramones. We’ll have to do rock, paper, scissors if lightning strikes and I win. lol
