Hip songs for babies

We made A & C a CD of kids music that we call Hip Songs for Babies (Not everything can be Baa Baa Black Sheep). This CD, NO! by They Might Be Giants, the CD attached to the book Bed, Bed, Bed by They Might Be Giants, and the CDs that go with Here Come the ABC's and Here Come the 123s by They Might Be Giants might be the only CDs we let our kids listen to. Children's music can get really annoying fast. Here's a track listing of the CD we made:

Sweet Child of Mine by Guns N Roses

A boy! by The Who

Celebration by Kanye West

To Zion by Lauryn Hill

This Old Man by Tori Amos

Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds by The Beatles

No! by They Might Be Giants

Whip-smart by Liz Phair

You're Not the Boss of Me by They Might Be Giants

Parents Just Don't Understand by DJ Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince

Bed, Bed, Bed by They Might Be Giants

Golden Slumbers by Ben Folds

When you dream by The Barenaked Ladies

Song for Sleeping by Stone Temple Pilots

Lullabye by Ben Folds Five

Little Star by Madonna

So you think it's appropriate for the kid to hear "It's a celebration, bitches! Grab a drink, grab a glass. After that I'll grab your ass"

Well, they have to learn about this stuff sometime, right?

Well that one was more for the moms. There is a section where they celebrate the birth of the new born child. They don't have to play that one for the child if they don't want to.

I'd play it for the kid. Good music knows no bounds.
