"Cutthroat Island" (John Debney)

If he/she isn't asleep by the end of then "The Battle/To Dawg's Ship/Morgan Battles Dawg/Dawgs's Demise/The Triumph" sequence, then nothing will work.

I was the beneficiary of this old thread recently and so I decided to add a few additional cues from the relaxation playlist I put together:

The Canyon, A.R. Rahman, 127 Hours (this was the first song in our playlist and this often put our son to sleep before it ended)
Toy Carousel...., Georges Delerue, Amazing Stories Vol. 1
Science and Magic, Patrick Doyle, Thor
Dining on Ashes, Cliff Eidelman, Star Trek VI
Battlestar Sonatica, Bear McCreary, BSG Season 3
The Winds Gently Blow Through the Garden, James Horner, The Boy in Striped Pajamas

And here are three divinely relaxing classical pieces:
Gymnopedies No. 1, Erik Satie (this is one of my ultimate relaxation cues)
Spiegel im Spiegel, Arvo Pärt (top notch sleep inducing minimalism)
Orchestral Suite No. 3 in D Major (Air on the G String), Bach (I recommend this soothing recording:

I have a singing gift for putting cranky baby boys to sleep. There was one who was done in by Night and Day (Astaire version) every time, without exception. In fact, it's still working, currently on my friend Steve's kid. Another was done in by The Very Thought of You (Nat King Cole version). We are talking instant lights out here. But for this big baby, I pull out side A of my The Year Of Living Dangerously, slap on the headphones, and the sleepless night soon is sleep-filled.

Anybody have more/newer suggestions of tracks they've used? I'm planning on compiling my playlist this weekend so that I have something for nighttime that is more pleasing to me than a stuffed sheep that plays the same two lullabies.

I'll give a serious response of a full album that I don't think was mentioned years ago - John Barry's My Life, and also I think Indecent Proposal (the new Intrada version) might be a good candidate. But an even better choice might be the Raymond Scott "Soothing Sounds for Baby" series.

I can't for the life of me remember what we played for my daughter when she was an infant, but I don't recall making a playlist....

I have a baby that doesn't sleep too much?

In your opinion what scores could be appropiate for this purpose or at least some that might calm the baby.

Thanks in advance for your answers.


Just about any of John Barry's later scores.

Anything by Zimmer.

If you really want to play something that can put an infant to sleep - if you can find it, play Danny Kaye's I'll Take You Dreaming from The Court Jester. Works like a charm - that's what it's designed to do and what it does in the film.
