Songs for E – one month in

E is one month old today. To celebrate, here is a playlist of songs I made for her. All of them, with the exception of the first and last, were written to celebrate the arrival of children. The first is a favourite of S and contains the line “Hey you with the pretty face/ Welcome to the human race” so seems vaguely appropriate, and the last is the story of a conception and birth and finishes with the line “We invented love/ And that’s the greatest story ever told” I hope E knows how much she is already loved.

All songs are available to buy from reputable online and physical music vendors – remember, buy your music! You’re investing in art!

    Good luck with this. There comes a time when a parent is so desperate for peace in the car on a long car journey that seemingly infinite number of repeats of The Sun Has Got His Hat On will be tolerated
