Music for parents with small children

First up,  Stay Awake: Various Interpretations of Music from Vintage Disney Films. It’s a bit bonkers. The track list is available on Wikipedia.

Tom Waits sings Heigh Ho, The Dwarves’ Marching Song


My favourite is Suzanne Vega’s Stay Awake.


Second (last, it’s a short list) cd: Kristin Hersh’s Murder, Misery and Then Goodnight. These are lullabies. Lullabies in which a woman is drowned and the baby gets a bottle of gin amongst other things. My dad remembers these from when he was little, growing up in Tennessee.

Kristin Hersh: What’ll we do with the baby-o?
