BEST BABY NAMING SONGS: PART 1
So, you’ve chosen a name for your baby to be, or baby in arms, and have decided to hold a naming ceremony. You’ve got the people you’re inviting, you know where you’ll hold it, party pies are in the freezer, you’ve hired a certified celebrant to help run the procedure, but you need some songs for the special day.
Here is a list of some that can hit the mark through words and vibe. Depending on what you’re after of course.
Savage Garden – I Knew I Loved You Before I Met You
That’s a perfect line for a newborn don’t you think?
John Lennon – Beautiful Boy
Written for his son Sean, apparently after Sean had a nightmare. It was released as a B-side to Happy Xmas (War is Over). Paul McCartney says that it is one of his favourites of John’s songs.
Cat Stevens – Father & Son
Some people don’t feel the emotional intensity of this aching tune. Those people are called robots.
Guns & Roses – Sweet Child of Mine
It’s not about a baby but you can easily pretend it is.
Joe Cocker – You are So Beautiful to Me
Let’s face it, babies don’t exactly exit their watery cocoon looking like catalogue models for Pumpkin Patch but to a parent they are beautiful beyond words.
Carpenters – We’ve Only Just Begun
Because, you’ve only just begun. There’s a good 18 years of tantrums, cuddles, late nights, morning conversations, morning grunts, awards nights, sunburns, field trips, boyfriends and girlfriends, raging hormones, tears of pain, tears of joy…
Stevie Wonder – Isn’t She Lovely
Written for his daughter Aisha. “Isn’t she lovely? Isn’t she wonderful?
Isn’t she precious? Less than one minute old. I never thought through love, we’d be
making one as lovely as she. But isn’t she lovely? Made from love. Even though he has never seen his daughter due to his blindness, Stevie was still able to share words that described how gorgeous he found her to be.
Elton John – Your Song
This has the perfect melodic vibe for consoling a baby I reckon. It’s sweet and direct.
Roberta Flack – The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face
The title is enough to qualify this warming song as one for your baby naming ceremony.
