(*Bold are my favorites) I love 90s grunge/alternative. Really, I love music in general, but I'm especially partial to 90s grunge. As such, I was super excited to listen to Jammy Jams Lullabylooza. We listen to Jammy Jams and Rockabye baby on Pandora fairly regularly, but it's different being able to play a whole album. It's great for some background music while I'm trying to get the girls to settle down.

Just a note that I thought was obvious, but it appears not to be to some...this is a lullaby album. IE, soft, soothing, instrumental music (per the FAQ, "Most commonly used are the vibraphone, marimba, xylophone, piano, and wood blocks"). No words (could you imagine the actual lyrics to these songs being sung as a lullaby???) and nothing heavy or particularly loud.

I did find myself singing along, though. I love that the songs something my kids can listen to over and over without driving me crazy...because they're songs I enjoy, but in a format that won't get them worked up!
They also carry various other genres, and I'm sure they'll be adding more, so you'll probably find something you'd like.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
