Rewind: The ELS CD

As we put the finishing touches on the newest Scott family CD, it is an opportune time to revisit the first two. Wedding CD review was here.

ELS was born in March 2009 and is now a two-and-a-half year old about to start the first week of preschool and welcome home a baby sister.  We didn't hold much good baby stuff back for a future CD, using favorite lullabies from the Pogues and Tom Petty and making the not-so-bold prediction that she would stay up late and make a mess. She did.

  1. "First Sight" by These United States"A generation would follow in the path that we'd charted"
  2. "Chemicals Collide" by Cloud Cult"It's unforgettable / unpredictable / the way our chemicals collide"
  3. "It's Growing" by Otis Redding"And every day / it grows a little more"
  4. "This is the Day" by The The "This is the day / your life will surely change"
  5. "New Soul"  by Yael Naim"I'm a new soul / in this very strange world"
  6. "I Live in the Mess That You Are" by Zookeeper"We are on the road to something / we are sleeping still inside / we are name idea children / we are thinking how we might / believe in the mess we are / conceive in the mess we are / find peace in the mess we are / I live in the mess you are / I'm in love mess you are"
  7. "Stay up Late" by Talking Heads"Mommy had a little baby / there (s)he is / fast asleep / (S)he is just / a little plaything / why not / wake (her) up"
  8. "Me and the Bean" by Spoon"She don't know anything / but she's beautiful to me"
  9. "My Girls" by Animal Collective"With a little girl / and by my spouse / I only want a proper house"
  10. "Lullaby of London" by The Pogues"So I pray now child / that you sleep tonight / when you hear this lullaby"
  11. "Alright for Now" by Tom Petty"So sleep tight my baby / unfurrow your brow / and know I love you / we're alright for now"
  12. "Slow Show" by The National
    "You know I dreamed about you / for 29 years / before I saw you"
  13. "Flood of Love" by Zookeeper"When you sail into the world in a flood of love..."
