Rockabye Baby! Review and Giveaway

I love music, as I have said once or twice before.  My girls absolutely love music, I have taught my oldest daughter my love of all types, but she still loves her Hannah Montana and Jonas Brothers.  Little one loves the classics like Twinkle Twinkle, the Handy Manny theme, and so on.  We were introduced to a new type of music recently that I am truly a new bug fan of.  Rockabye Baby! is the store and they specialize in get this, lullaby renditions of baby's favorite rock bands.  Now I know what you're thinking and probably the same thing when I ran across the site, how on earth can you make a lullaby rendition of rock and roll music?  It was especially a huge question as I read across the CD's that they have available in their store.  AC/DC, U2, Green Day, Metallica, and Guns and Roses and that's just to name a few.  I was definitely curious as to how this worked, so I contacted the company to see if I could set up a review.  The graciously accepted and sent me their newest release of one of my all-time favorite bands-Lullaby Renditions of Journey.  Seriously, who doesn't like Journey and I'm talking Journey WITH Steve Perry, not without.  I was actually really excited to receive this CD, not only for my little one, but for myself as well.  I can honestly say that this CD is really great!  Little one really enjoyed it as well.  She was bee boppin' all over the house and just seemed to thoroughly enjoy herself.  I love it because it had some of the classic Journey songs-retooled.  I also love the cover of this CD as well as the others I have looked at.  They are vamped up versions of a cover made famous by the original artists:colorful and animated.  Here is the songs featured on the Journey CD:
*Open Arms
*Any Way You Want It
*Wheels In the Sky
*Separate Ways (World's Apart)
*Who's Crying Now?
*Lovin' Touchin' Squeezin'
*Send Her My Love
*Stone In Love
*Only the Young
*Don't Stop Believin'

I found that even if you are a big fan of some of the bands featured on this set of CD's and you don't have babies or kids, I would still buy them for myself, this Journey CD was just enjoyable for me and a change of pace from the ordinary.  Here is the overview according to the site:
Rockabye Baby! transforms timeless rock songs into beautifully instrumental lullabies.  Guitars and drums are traded for soothing mellotrons, vibraphones, and bells, and the volume is turned down from a ten to a two.  Rockabye Baby! is the perfect way to share the music you love with the littlest rocker in your life.

I am really anxious to get more of these CD's as two of my FAVORITE bands are featured: U2 and Coldplay.  I can't wait to introduce these to little one, I'm sure she would love them.  As I listened to this CD, I couldn't help but wish they had these CD's out when my oldest was a baby.  When she was little she really dug Queen and great thing is that Rockabye Baby!has Lullaby Renditions of Queen, she would have loved that, maybe she still would.

Rockabye Baby! is staffed with music lovers from all corners of the world.  Headquartered in Los Angeles, the label was born of the need to make children's music cool-not only for babies but their parents too.  They turned to their record collections for inspiration: punk, metal and classic rock.  the resulting albums are revolutionary yet reverential.  Rockabye Baby s the newest addition to diverse musical family.

Rockabye Baby! has also won some great awards including 3 iParenting Media Awards, Esquire's Esky Music Award for Best Kids Album and the National Parenting Publications Award.  Not only do they offer a wonderful range of music CD's but they offer Rockabye Baby! onesies as well.  For more information on this great company and all of the products that they have to offer, please head over HERE.  Be sure also to check out the Rockabye Baby! blog HERE.
