So, I have no idea what the nursery will look like. i have time to figure that out. That isn't where I'm "stuck" and need your feedback and ideas.
A friend did her nursery for her son with some of the chorus of "You Are My Sunshine" around the top of the room (like a border.) When I saw that, I thought "OMG! That's perfect! I want to do the same!" because my mom used to wake me up singing that song. (which is messed up, as the song itself is morbid and sad - but the chorus is pretty on its own!)
I'm not too afraid of "copying" off of her and her idea. However...before I settle on that song specifically, I thought I'd think of other songs/lyrics that could be good for an infant/child's room. A lot of things I like is slightly more adult or love songs towards adults, not towards a child. I have considered "Dance to you fall, love till you die, raise the roof" (Carbon Leaf), but i'm not 100% on it.
Any of you have any ideas of songs/lyrics for us to consider? I realize it's a personal preference thing, but I feel like I have "writer's block" on this.
You can't go wrong with most Beatles. Not Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds or anything, but Imagine and All You Need is Love are great. Wasn't someone else doing a Beatles room? We have some fab four lyric inspired artwork that will be going in there.
[QUOTE=~MK~;20878158]is there a song that's special to you and dh/so?[QUOTE]
There's several that's special to us. That's also why "Can't help falling in love" is on the list. "Strangers in the night" just doesn't seem suitable for a baby's room! lol And i'm a HUGE Elvis fan, so it would be nice to use something of his. "Can't help..." can definately work...but I also like "Love Me Tender".
It's just a "challenge" to find a song that is special to me/DH that can also convey to Peanut. We will find something...and we do have time.
Maybe i should ask DH about all this sometime! hahahahahaha
Hmmm. someone mentioned a Beatles-themed room. I have always wanted an Elvis themed room (in general - not for a baby necessarily). Maybe I can work that angle. - Love Me Tender, Teddy Bear, Hound Dog, Blue Suede Shoes.
