Baby Tracks

So I got the idea in my head to do a mix CD of music for my baby to listen to while still in utero, and I suppose, after it's born. Probably the most fun mix I've ever made. I didn't pay a whole lot of attention to lyrical content for the most part , but more to overall tone and feel, trying to create a good mix of stuff for baby, and maybe some stuff that would possibly sound good in a womb type setting. I had so much fun doing it that it ended up being a two disc set. So here's the track list:

Disc 1:

  • Protection by Massive Attack
  • Sledgehammer by Peter Gabriel
  • Whip-smart by Liz Phair
  • Whale & Wasp by Alice in Chains

  • Take My Hand by Dido
  • Porpoise Song by The Monkees

  • The National Anthem by Radiohead
  • Thirty-three by Smashing Pumpkins
Disc 2:
  • Know Your Chicken by Cibo Matto
  • Rebirth of Slick by Digable Planets
  • We Are All Made of Stars by Moby
  • You Are My Sunshine by Norman Blake (O Brother Where Art Thou Soundtrack)
  • Summertime Rolls by Jane's Addiction
  • Mondo 77 by Film Dialogue (Vanilla Sky Soundtrack)
  • Life By The Drop by Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble
  • Your Name by Tricky
