You Rock Baby!
The latest trend among celebs is the instrumental lullaby renditions of popular rock bands/songs by various artists, which they love to play for their children.
Baby showers are occasions to celebrate and welcome a new member into the family. This tradition is said to have its origins during the baby boom of '40s and '50s after World War II. Tradition dictates that the baby shower must be organized by a distant cousin or an aunt so that it does not look like a mission to collect gifts, but today with changing times, it's hosted by any close member of the family or by best friends of the mother-to-be. It's also fairly common nowadays to include the dad-to-be, some new dads may relish sharing in all the aspects of pregnancy.

Apart from all the cooings received over the cute baby clothes that are gifted, the sharing of family pregnancy anecdotes by grandmothers, aunts, and other elderly female members of the family, yummy food, and loving company, you also need good music to set the mood right. Here are a list of songs that can get everyone to dance, just chill around and listen, or sing along.
