A fellow tweeter inquired about the music I play for baby Reef.  Er…well, I feel a leeetle bad that I don’t play your typical baby CDs just yet.  An inkling of guilt at most.  I assume there will come a time in which I’ll have to.  Over.  And over.  And over again.  So while I still have choices of my own, I selected a few songs from my existing music library that are simply melodic, upbeat – a little bit Indie, a little bit ambient/ down-tempo, and a little bit in between.  With any luck, Little Mister will like them, too.

Some songs resonate with me an intense awe that I have for my little cupcake.  Occasionally we dance together around our living room.  And I have every intention of taking that spin with him as often as I possibly can before he decides one day that he’s too cool to do so.

Right now, the baby’s music list is shaping up a little something like this:

Aqualung – Strange and Beautiful
Asteroids Galaxy – Around the Bend
Band of Horses – On My Way Back Home
Ben Folds – The Luckiest
Boards of Canada
The Beta Band – Dry the Rain
Bright Eyes – First Day of My Life

I should probably pepper in some classical music onto the baby’s playlist.  After all, I heard it makes them smarter.
