WHAT ARE YOUR LATE HOUR LULLABIES?
I did a little poll to see how off tradition lullabies can get, and as it turns out, very. Here are some of the popular answers and why they likely came onto the roster.
American Pie was one of the most popular responses, and I don't think we are pushing a discussion on the loss and change of the American social landscape or the death of Buddy Holly. Why are we lulla-bye-ers flocking to it? Because it keeps us semi-conscious dangling over the side of the crib while we try to recall the countless verses we all learned to sing around campfires in our freshmen days. If you are looking to branch out try Hotel California, Stairway to Heaven (some might recall cautions about singing it backwards) and Free Bird. All of these songs are wildly known as the perfect school dance songs when asked by a boy you liked or the most entrapping song if you were just trying to be nice. True story.
Christmas songs, anything Beatles or John Lennon (Mothers of sons... Beautiful Boy, am I right?), and the overplayed, such as Wonderwall, got a lot of nods. With the easy recall of traditional Christmas carols at the ready, many found themselves heading into an off season festive repertoire...
