We’ve already talked about how we are not going to be those parents that buy the Barney Sing Along cd (not that those parents are evil – at least in theory) for our kid. I grew up with Lynard Skynard pumped into my ears 24/7 and we’re going to shape our kids in the same way. So, here is the first of my baby mix tapes.
The Sugarcubes – Birthday
REM – Begin the Begin
Pearl Jam – Black
The Decemberists – The Mariner’s Revenge (complete with lines from Moby Dick)
The Counting Crows – Friend of the Devil (Greatful Dead cover)
Corinne Bailey Rae – Venus as a Boy (Bjork Cover)
