Get into the groove with Rockabye Baby lullaby renditions of Madonna 1

Who else grew up listening to Madonna cranked on their stereo?

I remember endless hours sitting in my bedroom with the ‘like a virgin’ on vinyl, cranked as loud as it would go!

Madonna is an American singer-songwriter who released her debut album ‘Madonna’ in 1983. She had a series of albums which were hugely popular including ‘Like A Prayer’ and ‘Erotica’. Her music videos were bold and sometime controversial! She had a string of number one hits including “Like a Virgin”, “Papa Don’t Preach”, “Like a Prayer” and “Vogue”.

Madonna has sold more than 300 million records worldwide and is recognized as the world’s top-selling female recording artist of all time by the Guinness World Records so no wonder Rockabye Baby have added her to their collection of lullabies. This cd is packed full of all Madonnas hit songs including;

Lucky Star

Material Girl

Like a Virgin

Ray of Light

Express Yourself

Vogue

Papa Don’t Preach

Into the Groove

Holiday

Like a Prayer

Borderline

Crazy for You

Like all Rockabye Baby cds these tunes have been transformed into beautiful instrumental lullabies to help your little rocker get a good nights sleep. Madonna, along with the entire range of Rockabye Baby lullaby cds is available on line now for $29.95.

Who doesn’t cherish a good nights sleep?


Nirvana, 20 years since Nevermind was released!

Who can forget Nirvana?  Nirvana was an American rock band that was formed in the 80s by Kurt Cobain and Krist Novoselic.  They released their first album ‘Bleach’ and established itself as part of the Seattle grunge scene.  In 1990, after a long succession of drummers, Dave Grohl joined Nirvana.  Then Nirvana became a household name in 1991 with the release of their second album ‘Nevermind’ and the first hit single ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’.

With the death of Kurt Cobain in 1994, Nirvana was no longer.

I guess we will be left wondering…… how big would Nirvana have been?

Now thanks to Chaser Kids, your little rocker can express their personality with either the Nirvana Smiley tee or the Nirvana Live at Reading tee  These tees look awesome and are so soft they can be worn all day or all night, depending on how much of a party animal your little rocker is.

    

For baby rockers, don’t forget about Rockabye Baby lullaby renditions of Nirvana, this is an awesome alternative lullaby cd to lull your baby off to sleep.


Def Leppard has been transformed!

Yes you heard right…. Def Leppard have been transformed by Rockabye Baby into lullabies to help rock your baby to sleep.

Def Leppard are an English rock back which formed back in 1977.  With a list of albums to their name including High ‘n’ Dry, Hysteria and more recently Mirrorball: Def Leppard are one of the worlds best-selling music artists having sold more that 65 million albums worldwide!

So given that Def Leppard have been around for so long i am sure there are some die hard fans out there that would love to introduce their little rocker to the music they grew up with and love!  Rockabye Baby have included 12 awesome tracks; Pour Some Sugar on Me, Photograph, Rock of Ages, Hysteria, Foolin’, Too Late For Love, Armageddon, Rocket, Let’s Get Rocked, Animal, Love Bites, Bringin’ On the Heartbreak.  You can even listen to a few on our website so you can hear for yourself how much this album rocks.

The entire Rockabye Baby lullaby rendition series is available at A Little Bit of Cheek at $29.95 each. 


Are you a fan of The Flaming Lips?

The Flaming Lips are an American rock band, formed in Norman, Oklahoma in 1983.

Melodically, their sound contains lush, multi-layered, psychedelic rock arrangements, but lyrically their compositions show elements of space rock.  They are renowned for their unusual song and album titles—such as “Psychiatric Explorations of the Fetus with Needles”, “Free Radicals (A Hallucination of the Christmas Skeleton Pleading with a Suicide Bomber)” and “Yeah, I Know It’s a Drag… But Wastin’ Pigs Is Still Radical”.

They are also acclaimed for their elaborate live shows, which feature costumes, balloons, puppets, video projections, complex stage light configurations, giant hands, large amounts of confetti, and frontman Wayne Coyne’s signature man-sized plastic bubble, in which he traverses the audience. I personally got to see The Flaming Lips play at the Big Day Out 2004 in Adelaide and in true The Flaming Lips style the show went off with a bang!

I have to say i was a little surprised when Rockabye Baby announced they were expecting and it was The Flaming Lips that they were transforming into the latest lullaby cd.  Now that i have listened to the lullaby cd, i can honestly say i love it!  With a range of cool tracks including Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots Pt.1, The Yeah Yeah Yeah song and Do You Realize? all featuring on the new album.

Rockabye Baby are the only choice when it comes to rock lullabies.  They transform timeless rock songs into beautiful instrumental lullabies.  This is the perfect way for you to introduce your little rocker to the music you love.

As you know at A Little Bit of Cheek we stock the entire series and they are all available in store now for $33.95 plus you can listen to samples of the tracks on our website before you buy.


Are you looking for an Island in the Sun?

Perhaps you are a fan of Buddy Holly, the song that is!

I am talking about Weezer the American alternative rock band which formed in 1992. They have released nine full-length albums, six EPs, and a DVD and sold over nine million records in the United States to date.

Now Weezer has been transformed from timeless rock songs into beautiful instrumental lullabies.

That’s right, Rockabye Baby has a new baby…. Weezer!

Guitars and drums have been traded for soothing mellotrons, vibraphones and bells, and the volume is turned down from an eleven to a two. 

The band is best known for their successful singles “Buddy Holly”, “Undone – The Sweater Song” and “Island in the Sun” all of which have made it onto the Rockabye Baby lullaby cd.

Plus a range of other hits including; 

My Name is Jonas, Susanne, Say it Ain’t So, Across the Sea, Beverly Hills, El Scorcho,  In the Garage, The Good Life and Only in Dreams.

 

So why not add Weezer to your Rockabye Baby collection….. I am sure your little rocker will LOVE it!
