So every night Jessica and I put Sadie in her crib, and as she looks up at us, we warble out a lullaby for her, often with passages of unintended harmony, kiss her goodnight, and then go into the living room, where we curse a lot and watch R-rated movies.
Our repertoire consists of:
- Home on the Range
- Twinkle Twinkle
- You are my Sunshine
- Plastic Jesus (made famous in Cool Hand Luke, and Transmissions)
But we’re looking for new ones, if anyone has any ideas for sweet indie-rock lullabies…
