I've always been a fan of unconventional music. You can take the hardest musician or band and turn them sweet. Acoustic versions of many popular rock songs really sweeten the deal, especially if you add a soothing female voice to a hard male voice or vice versa. Yet, there is a much more simple sweetness to music and that's the instrumental version of almost any song. Take it one more level and turn it into a lullaby...

Rock meets lullaby? YES. It can happen. I never would have thought, in a million years, that Billy Idol's music could ever be turned into a sweet, soothing tune that could ease someone into sleep, but it has happened.


We don't have any babies or toddlers or young children in the house (at the moment), but I love soothing music to get me to sleep. I know quite a few folks who either have a hard time sleeping themselves or have a hard time getting their children to sleep. I'm a strong believer in creating a relaxing environment for sleep through music.

I usually play my Sir Edward Elgar channel on Pandora to get me to sleep. That's classical music, but there's something about the melodic tunes of lullabies, perhaps the instruments that are used, that make lullabies more soothing to me. I think it might be the bells!

When I first listened to Rock The Cradle, a lullaby tribute to Billy Idol, by Jammy Jams, I didn't instantly hear the Billy Idol in the songs, but after I listened to song after song, I heard it and I fell in love. Regardless, the tunes are super-soothing to me. I asked Mr. Vines to listen and let me know what he thought and he said it sounds like music that is "trying to put you to sleep; a relaxing kind of tone".

Take a listen here! Rock The Cradle features popular renditions of Billy Idol songs in the form of a lullaby such as Cradle of Love, Rebel Yell, Eyes Without a Face (a fave of mine), White Wedding, Dancing with Myself and more. There are 10 tracks total.


Travis hit the nail on the head. I'm definitely adding Rock The Cradle to my get to sleep tunes! My introduction to Rock the Cradle by Jammy Jams has also piqued my interest on what else Jammy Jams has to offer. I only wish Jammy Jams had been around when my teenage son was itty-bitty because in the midnight hour, you're only begging for more SLEEP!!

About Jammy Jams

Jammy Jams takes modern music and turns into lullabies using soothing sounds of vibraphone, marimba, xylophone, piano, blocks and more performed and arranged by Tim Phillips and Jeff Bradford. You'll find renditions from popular artists whose music you'd never expect to be able to share with your children in the form of a lullaby such as: The Cure, Depeche Mode, Run DMC and Whitesnake to Lady GaGa, Meghan Trainor, Katy Perry and Taylor Swift, plus Dr. Dre, Wu-Tang Clan (yes, really) and many more rock, pop and hip-hop artists and bands.

I would compare Jammy Jams as the next Now That's What I Call Music for lullabies!! Not only can you soothe your little ones (or yourself) to sleep, but you also get to enjoy hits that you like, so maybe next time you won't get caught singing Mary Had A Little Lamb or speaking of lambs....Lambchops, the song that never ends...........(Sorry!).
