Do Not Cry, and I Will Sing a Lullabye
Picture by Mary Cassatt and from here
As promised at the start of this year, I'm planning on releasing a lullaby album sometime soon. Initially, I was having a bit of difficulty working on it because, I think a lullaby should be really simple - just piano and vocals - and most of the lullabies I was planning on doing would be covers... Sound like anything I already do? That's what I thought too!
So I'm thinking of releasing a collection of Song Sketches - some I've already done and some I will be doing - and maybe a couple extras thrown in for fun.
What I want to know is what constitutes a lullaby to you? For me, it has to be simple, not too difficult to sing (it may be 2 a.m. when you're singing it so quality vocal control may be at a minimum), and have non-offensive lyrics (love songs are fine - naughty songs, well, there's a better person to sing them to).
Are there any songs in particular you think scream lullaby*? Any songs I've donethat you think would make a good lullaby? Any help would be completely appreciated!
*Maybe a bad choice of words - gently call 'lullaby'
