Inducing sleep into an infant without making you hate yourself

This is the first post in a new category, fatherhood. While, I’m just as sick of reading weird daddy-ness blog posts as the next guy, I’ve got a couple things to share without being obnoxious (I hope).

First of all is my sleep-inducing playlist for my daughter with songs in it that I actually like. I’m looking for suggestions of stuff to add to this list…

  1. Good Night Good Night – Spiritualized
  2. Lullaby – Tom Waits
  3. Cradle Song – Shriekback
  4. Johnsburg, Illinois – Tom Waits
  5. I’m Still Here – Tom Waits
  6. Waltz For A Drunken Angel – Gregory Page
  7. Comptine D’un Autre Été: L’après Midi – Yann Tiersen
  8. L’anniversaire d’Irvin – Angelo Badalamenti
  9. Passenger Seat – Death Cab For Cutie
  10. Sleep (Instrumental) – Kimya Dawson
  11. Fish And Bird – Tom Waits
  12. Jitterbug Boy – Tom Waits
  13. Such Great Heights – Iron and Wine
  14. Two Step – Low

I also have the Rockabye Baby! Cure record in there, but honestly it is starting to bug me. This list is also very heavily weighted in the Tom Waits direction, but that was just because of how well I know his songs, I guess. I’d love some suggestions for other tunes…

This playlist is pretty much a guaranteed sleep inducer for my daughter so far though…

[Update August 6, 2013]
It turns out that I don’t like to blog that much about fatherhood. Maybe since I don’t feel like I have much to say that hasn’t already been said. This was really a music post, so I moved it to that category and I’m putting the fatherhood category on ice for the moment.
