The “Rockabye Baby” series of CDs is a great way to hate your favorite artist by spending money on a MIDIfied version of their greatest hits. The company who puts out these discs has bastardized the work of Nine Inch Nails, The Cure, The Smiths, The Flaming Lips, and about twenty other artists (click thru to see the full list.)
You can play classical or instrumental music for your child. You can play an actual Smiths album for your child. You can eschew recorded music altogether and sing and play music with your child. But playing them fucked-up MIDI versions of what you liked in college just proves that you don’t actually like music, or your child, at all.
