Lil’ Lips

Fake blood not included.

Gazette staff March 30th, 2011

Why send your newborn to dreamland with a terrifying lullaby of a cradle falling to earth? Come April 26, you can do so with the sweet, sweet sounds of an Asian woman fighting robots.

Oklahoma City’s own The Flaming Lips are becoming the latest band to have its tunes turned into nursery-ready instrumentals in the “Rockabye Baby!” compilation series. The vibraphone-heavy albums have reworked the music of such rock ’n’ roll superstars as The Beatles, U2, Coldplay, Madonna, Radiohead and many others.

Twelve tracks will be featured on “Rockabye Baby!: Lullaby Renditions of The Flaming Lips,” including “Race for the Prize” (breast milk?), “A Spoonful Weighs a Ton” (Gerber spinach?) and “She Don’t Use Jelly” (a cry for Vaseline?).
