Tributee: Dave Matthews Band.
Illustrator: Jennifer Cuellar.
Even though they've written plenty of popular ballads, the Dave Matthews Band's songbook doesn't exactly seem like lullaby fodder. However, Rockabye Baby! Lullaby Renditions of Dave Matthews Band turns the group's hits into twinkly naptime music. Relying on glockenspiel, xylophone, and other playful percussion, the songs with the strongest melodies ("Crash into Me," "Satellite," "Ants Marching") stand up the best to these radically different arrangements. Dave Matthews fans who are parents might prefer this to a generic collection of lullabies, and even childless fans might appreciate this for its sheer novelty value.
