Pajiba Lullabies

Tonight's comment diversion comes from legib, a reader and all-around amazing PajibaMom. She's soliciting lullabies, as she writes:


I have an ancient iPod that I have set up in my daughter's room to play music while she sleeps. I think it's the first shuffle, so there's no picking specific songs -- you just have to go with what plays. The first time she slept through the night (it's been 7 long months) is when I set this up. So now I have been on a constant hunt for music that would suit this purpose. I also want to give a good mix to my child -- I don't want it to be normal children's music, but stuff I would listen to. So my question is: What would be music that you would play for your child that would both define your music taste and possibly how you feel for the kid? Mind you, I am looking for quiet music to play while sleeping, so loud stuff won't really work. Classical, country, pop, anything would do. What would be your "lullibas" or your "Pajibabies" be? Here's a sampling of what I have on there to give everyone an idea of what I am looking for:

1. "The Rainbow Connection" -- Willie Nelson (originally done by Kermit the Frog)
2. "Hallelujah" -- kd lang
3. "Baby" -- Rufus Wainwright
4. "Clair de lune" -- Debussy
5. "Wonderwall" -- Ryan Adams

All right, folks. Help a mom out. My suggestions: A double dose of Ben Folds. Try out "Lullabye" from Ben Folds Five, and a cover of "Golden Slumbers" from solo Ben Folds. Oh, and "Bedtime Lullaby" from Mark Kozelek may be the most perfect baby lullaby of all time.
