Giveaway & Review: Rockabye Baby CD (2 Winners) [CLOSED]

I first heard about Rockabye Baby! shortly after the twins were born. Even though they are not infants anymore, I was still very curious about this series of lullaby renditions of popular rock songs. I wondered if it would be music suitable for unwinding for both me and the kids.

The DVDs I received to review were Rockabye Baby! Lullaby Renditions of Aerosmith, of Guns n' Roses (which recently hit store shelves on November 10th), and more of The Beatles. I was pleased to find that there were some of my favorite songs represented by each group on all three CDs.

1) For an adult to listen to some of these familiar songs, it is very difficult to suppress the urge to sing along. In my case, that would probably reverse any of the serenity achieved by playing the lullabies.

2) All the music is played by what sounds like xylophones in a music box style. If played softly, I think it would definitely lull a person to sleep, babies and adults alike. I know I had to turn the music off at two different times because I was starting to get a little drowsy.

3) Although of the three groups I prefer Aerosmith, my favorite lullaby of the bunch is "Sweet Child O' Mind" on the Rockabye Baby Guns n' Roses CD. The melody is so beautiful.

You can sample each song from all 29 Rockabye Baby! CDs on prior to ordering. These CDs would make great gifts for both new and expectant parents this holiday.
