A friend and I are going to record a CD of lullabyes over the next few months and I wanted to get some suggestions from you all for songs that we wouldn't have to pay royalties on. I don't know that we're actually going to try to sell the CD, but if we should, I don't want us to get sued.
I'm hugely excited about this project. Our voices harmonize really well together. So, as you're thinking of suggestions, keep in mind songs that have lovely harmonies for two women.
The irony is that the project is likely to be interrupted because her husband is doing the recording and they're expecting their first baby. Talk about firsthand experience.
I've been trying to remember some of the songs I sang for my kids -- mostly they were just sad folk songs -- "Babe,I'm Gonna Leave You," "All My Trials" and such. Not that all lullabyes have to be about lambies and pink bows, but I'd like to have some options that won't make us both go diving for the anti-depressants, too.
