Wendell (my 1-year-old) has had a 104 fever today, and though it looks like it’s broken (he’s sweating), it took a lot of songs to get him to sleep tonight.
Here are some pop songs I like to sing as lullabies to my kids, with links to every music service, where possible.
“Everyday” by Buddy Holly
“Only You” by Yazoo
“Take On Me” by a-ha (the sad version)
“Weak” by SWV
“Everything’s Alright” from Jesus Christ Superstar (without the screaming Judas parts)
“Time After Time” by Cyndi Lauper
“A Summer Song” by Chad and Jeremy
“In My Life” by The Beatles
“God Must Have Spent A Little More Time On You” by *NSYNC (fight me)
“Dream a Little Dream of Me” by Mama Cass
“Rhythm of the Rain” by The Cascades
“Wild World” by Cat Stevens
“Moonshadow” by Cat Stevens
“Don’t Be Shy” By Cat Stevens (seems like a lot of Cat Stevens, there’s a reason for that)
“God Only Knows” by The Beach Boys
“A Teenager in Love” by Dion & The Belmonts
“Happy Together” by The Turtles
“The 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin’ Groovy)” by Simon & Garfunkel
“Mr. Wendal” (of course) by Arrested Development (but I also have a version where I sing “Miss Louisaaa-yeah-yeahhhhh”)
I’d love to know yours. Not recalling many of mine. I guess I can add to the list later. Thanks for happy vibes for the small Wendell.
