I’m expecting my first child in January and I also have a grandson who will be right around 10 months old when my baby is born. (long story!!)
Was thinking about music I’d like to have around for the babes, but I’d really like it to not be “Kid’s Music” for right now. I know there are a lot of contemporary artists putting out kids CD’s - They Might Be Giants comes to mind - but was wondering what more contemporary songs/artists would be good for the little ones. Music that is not grating to adults but is soothing or fun for babies and kids to listen to, you can sing along to easily, etc.
I’m figuring when they get old enough we will have no choice but to become familiar with Doodlebops and the Wiggles and all that stuff, but until then I’d like to have some play lists or CD’s available that the adults can enjoy and the kids also like. Adult Contemporary, Country, R&B, stuff like that.
Stevie Wonder - Isn’t She Lovely, and many others
Bob Marley - Three Little Birds or Jammin’
James Taylor - Your Smiling Face, Sweet Baby James and others
Earth Wind and Fire - That’s the Way of the World
The Manhattans - Shining Star
The Jackson 5 - ABC
Michael Jackson - Human Nature
Any other ideas…??
