Baby on the way! What's some chilled bass driven songs to play?

Recommended Posts

So missus dingo is expecting. Its our first, I'm terrified and don't know how to cope! 

I'm looking for chilled bass songs to play for little one when it arrives. So I can put it on or play along to so not to disturb him/her. I'm not putting on whale sounds or new age! 

Any recommendations? 

Chris

Congratulations, although you might not have time/energy to play at first! My musical output is 10% of what it was before kids, but I wouldn't have it any other way.

Congratulations to you & Mrs Dingo! smiley

Erm... Dock of the Bay - Otis Redding, or Riders on the Storm - The Doors, or maybe compose your own lullabye-type piece?

Good luck! ;)

The thrum of four wheels on tarmac, it certainly seems to send them to sleep in the car.

I'll make sure to record that for future use

End of the Rainbow - Richard Thompson?

No, maybe not. (Not bass driven). 😀

 

Congratulations

Congratulations!  I think a few low end sounds would be perfect.  The womb is a noisy place full of the sounds of the outside world, blood rushing around and digestive gurgling noises and they manage to sleep in utero, so a bit of bass would probably soothe the little one.  As long as you aren't rattling the windows with it obviously!

It's definitely scary the first time round, but you'll do great as long as you give the little one lots of attention.  Keep talking to them and carry them round as much as possible.  You can spoil them with stuff but you can't spoil them with love.

All the best for the three of you!

Congratulations!

I have been through this recently as we currently have a 9 week old baby girl.

Essentially, I don't think that music really matters in terms of relaxing our baby, at least while she is at the newborn stage. When she wants to sleep, she will sleep through anything. When she doesn't want to sleep or she is hungry and not being fed, no amount of relaxing music is going to help calm her as well as the act of picking her up and giving her a cuddle and speaking to her.

In terms of quiet relaxing sounds with slow low sounding groans and no loud unexpected noises, I have found that watching a Scottish football match on the TV is as beneficial as any type of whale music or compilations of background noises.

Congrats! You'll never be rich again! Although you probably kissed that goodbye when you bought first a car, and then a house ;)

 

Some Metal - bit of Maiden will have the sprog moshing along.

JCongratulations. All the cliches about children are true, even the ones that flatly contradict each other! 

Just play whatever the child likes and what you like or whatever makes them sleepy or happy. I often walked round and round the bedroom at 2am with my first baby singing the theme from Red Dwarf until he fell asleep. 

But if there was a CD player nearby during the day then he got whatever was to hand. ELO, Air, Jethro Tull, all sorts.

I was never rich in the first place! 

When they're older definitely rocking out to punk and ska. 

Love some reggae, maybe eek a mouse

Sabotage - Beastie Boys

Used to play that in my last band. I played guitar at the time and jumped round like an idiot! Good times
