(01-25-2007) U2 Songs Get Lullaby Makeover - Aversion*

U2 Songs Get Lullaby Makeover


Sure, "The Sweetest Thing" sounds like a good title for a lullaby, but "Sunday, Bloody, Sunday?"

The distance between the arena-rock show and the crib gets a little smaller as U2 will be the latest act to see its back catalog become transformed into baby-friendly lullabies. The album, Rockabye Baby! Lullaby Renditions of U2, hits all those kid-friendly record stores next week from Baby Rock Records, the label that's also brought us lullaby versions of Nirvana, Tool, Radiohead and Coldplay songs, among others.

Rockabye Baby! Lullaby Renditions of U2's track listing is:

Sunday Bloody Sunday
All I Want is You
Beautiful Day
One
With or Without You
I Still Haven't Found What I Am Looking for
Angel of Harlem
Where the Streets Have No Name
New Year's Day
Desire
The Sweetest Thing

"Broken bottles under childrens feet, bodies strewn across a dead-end street"....... I'm not too sure that would qualify as a lullabye.

It's just the music...no lyrics.

Nice - I'm in.

Ha ha, this is too funny! Don't forget MOFO...

Don't they need the band's permission to do this?

This is so unusual, I'm actually intrigued! However, listening to the lullabies gave me a mixed feeling - in several of the songs, I could not discern the melody at all.

Still, at least this is a novel way of doing U2's music.

I have my first child (a son) on the way in March, and I preordered this on Amazon a month ago! I can't wait - if I'm going to have to listen to baby music while rocking him to sleep, at least it's U2. You can't get them started too early...
