While classic lullabies like ‘Hush Little Baby’ and ‘Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star’ continue to be a comforting choice for your child, there’s a world of modern songs to sing to your baby. You might discover tunes that not only your little one enjoys, but also bring a smile to your own face. If you are finding the classics have been overdone, worry not—we’ve compiled a playlist with a variety of songs to sing to your baby.

The key to singing a ‘good song’ lies in your ability to sing it with heart, and your baby won’t mind the melody as long as it’s accompanied by your voice. Whether you prefer the classics or opt for more modern melodies, the key is the joyful connection you create through the shared experience of singing.

#8 Over the Rainbow – Israel Kamakawiwo’ole

Israel Kamakawiwo’ole’s “Over the Rainbow” is a perfect lullaby for your baby. Although it is an older song, we thought it deserved a spot on our list. The soothing ukulele and heartfelt vocals make it an ideal choice for those precious moments together.

Billie Eilish has been on the rise, and rightfully so. Her voice enchants with its dreamy melody and soulful vocals. This song talks about being captivated by someone’s stare, and their ocean-blue eyes.

#4 Brown Eyed Girl – Van Morrison (Chester See Acoustic Cover)

A cult classic gets a soothing acoustic twist in Chester See’s rendition of ‘Brown Eyed Girl,’ taking listeners on a serene and melodic journey.

Calling all country enthusiasts, this one’s a gem. Kane effortlessly sums up the essence of love in this infectious tune. As you serenade your baby with the lyrics “I don’t know how heaven can be better than this,” you’ll find a deep resonance in the heartfelt words.

#2 Que Sera Sera – Christina Perri

Christina Perri beautifully executes the timeless classic “Que Sera Sera” with her own enchanting touch. Her rendition adds a contemporary vibe, making it a wonderful song to sing to your baby.

#1 Easy On Me – Adele

We consider this one of the top songs to sing to your baby. If we could offer a piece of advice for this song, it would be to avoid the high ranges that this woman can effortlessly hit.
