BitchTapes: Songs for Babes

Credit: Billboard Magazine

It’s fall, which means #OMGsomanypeoplearehavingbabies. In struggling to find the right way to welcome the offspring of some rad friends into the world, I realized that maybe the best gift you can give (both to parents and the little peanuts), is a great mixtape. One that has songs that set the right tone for a precious new life, and are also actually great songs with real words that don’t drive parents crazy. Some tracks are modern lullabies, while others make for a great post-nap dance party. Whatever the mood, here’s a new baby mixtape that even grown folks can get behind.
