Appreciation of Prince's lullaby-ish songs....

"Wednesday" is definetely one of them.... replace the sad lyrics with rainbows and sunshine and it sounds like something you'd sing to your kids before they sleep

"Everybody Want What They Don't Got"

I KNOW the portion of this melody is lifted from some lullaby.... just can't think of the name.... someone help me out lol

what are the other lullabyish songs?

oh I JUST found out that the melody in "Everybody Want What They Don't Got" basically has the same melody as the lullaby "Hush Little Baby".... just creates something interesting and fresh with the part "if they got nothing or if they got a lot"

boom

Stopthistrain is pretty lullabyish now that i think of it.. like a mix of rnb, reggae with a lullaby melody... maybe thats why most don't like it, it just feels so different with that sweet diabetes melody...

Add "Let's Have A Baby" to that.

White Mansion always sounded lullaby-ish to me.

Here's what bothers ME:

Prince died of an overdose of the drug Fentanyl. Of which, it is very highly fucking likely that he never even knew he'd taken.

Obviously, but we're talking about the style and melody as well as the song itself. That lazy reggae feel is good for a lullaby type song. Same song, diff lyrics.

'jokes' aside, if i had a daughter instead of 2 sons, i would sing (or play the song) "Sweet Baby" for her all the time

Seems like every single respondent has a different perception of what lullaby-ish actually is.

And most of y’all are wrong!
