    Music for my son's photo CD

    Hope someone can point me to some good music here. I've made up a photo CD on Movie Maker with titles, etc and i'm looking for some good music to have as a background. My son is only 2 months old and i'd like something with good lyrics in it. Most ballads seem to be love songs and the words aren't really appropriate. Any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    your the best thing - the style council

    although classed as a love the song the fact that it has the line [Cause you're the best thing to ever happen to me or my world
    You're the best thing the ever happend
    just seals it for me

    I could be discontent and chase the rainbows end
    I might win much more but lose all that is mine;
    I could be a lot but I know I'm not
    I'm content just with the riches that you bring.

    I might shoot to win and commit the sin
    Of wanting more than I've already got;
    I could runaway but I'd rather stay
    In the warmth of your smile lighting up my day
    (the one that makes me say heh).

    Cause you're the best thing to ever happen to me or my world
    You're the best thing the ever happend - so don't go away.

    I might be a king and steal my peoples things
    But I don't go for that power crazy way;
    All that I could rule but I don't check for fools
    All that I need is to be left to live my way
    (say listen what I say).

    I could chase around for nothing to be found
    But why look for something that is never there;
    I may get it wrong sometimes but I'll come back in style
    For I realise your love means more than anything
    (the song you make me sing - yeah

    I can see where you're going with this lol. Although i'm a fan of this kind of music, not sure it suits a CD made up of baby photos :roll:.
    Keep them coming though.

    Well thought it would be good when the baby grows up, u know? not being sarccy...if I was I'd say Spunge - Its all gone wrong or something :lol:

    Another turning point;
    a fork stuck in the road.

    Time grabs you by the wrist;
    directs you where to go.

    So make the best of this test
    and don't ask why.

    It's not a question
    but a lesson learned in time.

    It's something unpredictable
    but in the end it's right.
    I hope you had the time of your life.

    So take the photographs
    and still frames in your mind.

    Hang it on a shelf
    In good health and good time.

    Tattoos of memories
    and dead skin on trial.

    For what it's worth,
    it was worth all the while.

    It's something unpredictable
    but in the end it's right.
    I hope you had the time of your life.

    or

    My child arrived just the other day
    He came to the world in the usual way
    But there were planes to catch and bills to pay
    He learned to walk while I was away
    And he was talkin' 'fore I knew it, and as he grew
    He'd say "I'm gonna be like you dad
    You know I'm gonna be like you"

    And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon
    Little boy blue and the man on the moon
    When you comin' home dad?
    I don't know when, but we'll get together then son
    You know we'll have a good time then

    My son turned ten just the other day
    He said, "Thanks for the ball, Dad, come on let's play
    Can you teach me to throw", I said "Not today
    I got a lot to do", he said, "That's ok"
    And he walked away but his smile never dimmed
    And said, "I'm gonna be like him, yeah
    You know I'm gonna be like him"

    And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon
    Little boy blue and the man on the moon
    When you comin' home son?
    I don't know when, but we'll get together then son
    You know we'll have a good time then

    Well, he came home from college just the other day
    So much like a man I just had to say
    "Son, I'm proud of you, can you sit for a while?"
    He shook his head and said with a smile
    "What I'd really like, Dad, is to borrow the car keys
    See you later, can I have them please?"

    And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon
    Little boy blue and the man on the moon
    When you comin' home son?
    I don't know when, but we'll get together then son
    You know we'll have a good time then

    I've long since retired, my son's moved away
    I called him up just the other day
    I said, "I'd like to see you if you don't mind"
    He said, "I'd love to, Dad, if I can find the time
    You see my new job's a hassle and kids have the flu
    But it's sure nice talking to you, Dad
    It's been sure nice talking to you"

    And as I hung up the phone it occurred to me
    He'd grown up just like me
    My boy was just like me

    And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon
    Little boy blue and the man on the moon
    When you comin' home son?
    I don't know when, but we'll get together then son
    You know we'll have a good time then

    Wasn't meaning to hint that you were being sarcastic so apologies if it came across that way. That is my type of music but i thought a ballad type would suit his mum more. I'd have Foo Fighters myself :thumbsup:

    dunno...they seem like they would work. In fact i'm sure I have heard cats in the cradle at the end of a film where it was a photo montage? :?

    have a look on Youtube...might sound better than you think IMHO

    I might actually give it a go. I know the song but have never really paid attention to the lyrics until you put them here. They're pretty good.
