Video Game Music Recommendations For Babies

Recommended Posts

As a new dad, my little girl is turning 11 weeks old this Friday. I am looking to put together some music for her to listen to. At first I was going to do the cliche classical music, but I am thinking of putting together a mix tape of video game music for her. So any recommendations on awesome video game music....here is what I have so far.....

I've got the perfect tune for a wee little lady.

...Just kidding. This, on the other hand? I have trouble thinking of any video game tune more perfect for a baby. Play this for her when she's snuggling up in her crib for the night and she'll grow up with the best dreams ever.

I'd say go for music that's atmospheric or has a child like vibe like:

Snes:yoshi island level 1

Nes:Nemo the dream master level 1,rose garden and ending music.

Nintendo 64">N64:mario 64 dock level.

Kingdom hearts:dearly beloved jukebox version

Zelda wind waker: title screen, open sea and Dragon roost island.

Zelda Ocarina of time/major as mask: forest temple, eponas ranch music, name screen music,asteral observatory.

Zelda twilight princess:city in the sky and the ice castle theme (forgot name where fight the abominable snowman looking things wife.

Megaman 7: iceman,cloudman,spring man .

Megaman 8:tengu man

Megaman 6:flame men heck pretty much all of them have music that is atmospheric.

Any music from any of the Kirby games would be very appropriate.

Of course the playlist would not be complete without this version of Rainbow Road.

Here's one of my personal favorites from Ico.

And the Lunar soundtracks are great. And pretty much any final Fantasy soundtrack.

As someone who has listened to VGM to fall asleep for the past oh... 12 or 13 years now, I recommend just about any FF or Chrono soundtracks. Suikoden has some nice songs as well, throughout the entire series. Bad as the game was, FF7 Dirge of Cerebus has a nice OST as well. Wild Arms, another good one. Just comb through them and remove any songs that might shock someone awake...

Fair warning, once you start them on the path of listening to music while sleeping, they're likely gonna need it to ever sleep haha.

Forget the baby, I want this collection. Ha. I could listen to this stuff for years, so many memorable games and songs. Then when you tire of the originals (as if) there are remixes out the wazoo. Piano, Mario Paint, metal versions, the links above with the music box were a first.

True enough DP, I'd also recommend a lot of the stuff that OCR has done over the years. Their Chrono Symphonic album is absolutely beautiful.

Wow so many good choices in this. You can never go wrong with Nintendo brand schooling. I will always have this retrospect of 8 and 16 bit game deaths burned into my memory. It's has actually been on my music hard drive for years and I do not get tired of watching it. Good quality sound, tempo that play nicely with the fond memories of these smelly old games. :)
