I'm a music junkie. My wife will be having our first child at some point this month. I'm compiling a cd with 10 songs on it so that my child is exposed to great music from day one. All genre's, types, etc. Anyone have any suggestions? I WILL play this cd on her first day on earth.....

Do yourself a favor and get a cd that have very soft music with nature sounds in the background (Ocean, wind etc...), If I did not have those to help the kids to get to sleep, I would be with RI in the nut house!

Maybe you could play GNR - Welcome to the Jungle for his/her first song. LOL

You could play the Eels "Last Stop:This Town" it has a very nice childish pop feel to it, and pretty beautiful lyrics.

Bach's Brandenburg Concerto #5 is good, So is Pachabel's Cannon in D.

Well...we're trying to steer away from kiddie songs. I think kids like them because they are exposed to them in place of exposing them to other music. I think the qualities that atract children to things like kids bop are the ability to sing along and learn the lyrics which can be accomplished with other things that are not....I don't know. Childish? :lol:

I am thinking more along spiritual lines. If I get to choose what my little girls first introduction to music is, what do I choose?

I think "Imagine" and "Wish You Were Here" are set in stone. I want to branch it out though. Not just staples. Blues, Hip Hop, Modern, etc. and I am having a hard time narrowing the field. As much as I love, say, TOOL, I think that's a bit abrasive for a newborn. Any ideas?

john lennon wrote a beautiful song for his son julian when he was still with the beatles called good night - he used to sing it to him while he was still in the womb and then recorded it for the white album - that would be my pick...

If you're into Sevendust, there's an awesome song on their new CD that Lajon wrote for his newborn child.

#5-This Life on their CD, Next

Beautiful.

I'll probably play that for my child when I decide to go that route. :D

Eric Clapton wrote a song called "Tears in Heaven," it is kind of a sad song that he wrote after losing his child....but it would be one I'd add to the list.

Its real soft and the chords clapton plays really depicts how he feels one of the main reasons i think he was so great. I think that would be an excellent add roman :D

Nobody mad here, bro. :)

Just curious as I've had that sig up for a couple weeks now and nobody has said a word about it.

I'll change it to something more fitting though... How's this one? ;)
