Thread Name: Hostile baby rocking songs
Subject: RE: Hostile baby rocking songs
I'm not sure whether this one counts as hostile or not: a mother who seems to be uncertain whether the baby that she is singing to, and that is being so troublesome, is really her child or a changeling. The song is Changeling's Lullaby on the CD "Changeling" (Wildgoose Studios WGS315CD). The sleeve notes say
"This song started as a fairly bleak and random thought of Gavin's on whether some of the mythology of the Changeling had a link to women's experience of Post Natal Depression (on which he says he's no expert!) and he managed to get a song out of it. Jess wrote the tine and sings it here."
