1st birthday video song suggestion
February 26, 2014 7:05 PM   Subscribe

My daughter is creating a video of highlights from her daughter's first year. She is looking for song suggestions for the video. She loves oldies (60s-70s), current country and pop but would consider anything. What suggestions do you have?

You'll be in my heart, Phil Collins.

I've always wanted this for a similar reason.

I think MGMT's 'Kids' would be cool for this.

We have discovered that Karen Carpenter's rendition of "Desperado" goes with everything.

For a similar purpose, I used Elizabeth Mitchell's cover of Woody Guthrie's "Grassy Grassy Grass".

I really like Sunny by Jose Feliciano for this - I made a short video of my kids goofing off in the bubble bath when they were very little with a snippet of this song, it turned out great.

Really over-the-top but great: Ewan McGregor's version of Your Song from Moulin Rouge.

Some Stevie Wonder, Stevie Wonder, Stevie Wonder, or Stevie Wonder.

I'm doing something similar and am trying to decide between The Beatles' All You Need is Love or 8 days a week or Love Me Do or Queen's Crazy Little Thing Called Love.

This video has a lovely unintrusive melody that could make a perfect backdrop to a short baby highlights clip. You can convert it to mp3 here.
