    American Pie (Don McLean). I sang that to her all the time when she was a newborn. It just goes on and on...

    Kesiah stops in her tracks to listen to Concerto 6 & 7 by Handel. It's her jam, yo.

    She also loves dancing to US3 (remember them?) and calms right down with Mazzy Star.

    As far as us singing to her, DH loves "The Sound of Music" so we sing her Eidelweiss as a lullaby (and I had to learn all the words to "Favorite Things" and "Sixteen Going on Seventeen" and every other frikkin' song) and I sometimes sing her Summertime. And she thinks the ABC song is some kind of hilarious joke. She's a nut.

    DS2 (5.5 mos.) has from the first time he heard it, immediately stopped everything to listen to a sort of jazz version of "I love you Just the way you Are" (Track 7 on some CD someone gave us. He used to scream all the time in his carseat, still does some times, and he STOPS silent if we can quick get track 7 in. He also loves Johnny Cash and his nighttime CD of Lullabyes that I sing along with.

    Now, whoever mentioned John Denver Follow Me has me humming it!

    that was ME! and I can't believe someone else knows it! it's so old school! LO *loves* John Denver ... we sing "Sunshine on My Shoulders" and "Follow Me" and "Annie's Song" and he *loves* to be bounced while we sing "Thank God I'm a Country Boy" ... I love the music because I remember hearing it when I was growing up and it brings back great memories!

Just curious if yall had a special song

    The exact same song worked for my niece and for my nephew it was twinkle twinkle little star

    For us it is Baby Beluga by Raffi. DH sang it to her since she was just tiny and now it always calms her down. Many times DH and I are in the car singing that song over and over. If we stop, she cries, so we just loop it. She loves that song.

    Royals from Lorde
    It was one day she was crying so hard and suddenly stopped when hearing the BGM of www.live4mmo.com
    So I downloaded this song and play it every time she cry.
