30 Baby Shower Songs to Play and Party

A party without great music would simply be incomplete. Even for a simple party like a baby shower, music is essential to keep the guests entertained and creating a playlist that signifies the bond between a child and the parent would be perfect. Music is vital to create meaningful connections and warm vibes at any event. It stirs up the right emotions and makes any event a memorable one. Check out this fantastic collection of songs you could add to your baby shower music playlist! The list contains everything, from country music for baby shower to funny baby shower songs and even beautiful baby shower songs for dance.

Why Is It Important to Choose a Good Playlist for a Baby Shower Party?

When you invite people close to you, you will end up with at least two generations at your party. However, no matter what age groups your guests belong to, you can be sure that no two people at your party will like the same type of music. While some might like the current pop vibe, others would be into music from the 20th century. Therefore, it is best to diversify the type of music since a playlist will help make people at your party feel more comfortable.

Moreover, your baby might also start enjoying these songs. Various studies have shown that fetuses inside the womb can still be sensitive to sounds and remember them when they are born. During the baby shower, the baby would have already developed its ears and could recognise the mother’s voice, sound patterns, and language. At this point, the baby’s brain would be receptive to soft music, which can promote early brain development and happiness.

Here, we’ve compiled a list of some of the best baby shower songs for boys and girls.

Oh, what a thing to have done
And it was all yellow”

And if I stare too long, I’d probably break down and cry”

As I slipped out my bed, to your crib I crept
Touched your head gently, felt my heart melt”

18. Last Night On Earth – Green Day

“You are the moonlight of my life every night
Giving all my love to you
My beating heart belongs to you
I walked for miles ’til I found you
I’m here to honour you
If I lose everything in the fire
I’m sending all my love to you”

19. Miracle – Celine Dion

“You’re the reason I was born

With all the future has so much for you in-store
Who could ever love you more?”

One I never looked for
There is something in your loving
That tears down my walls”

you’re the only reason I keep on coming home.”

22. Better Together – Jack Johnson

“There’s no combination of words I could put on the back of a postcard
No song that I could sing, but I can try for your heart
Our dreams and they are made out of real things
Like a shoebox of photographs
With sepia-toned loving
Love is the answer, at least for most of the questions in my heart
Like why are we here? And where do we go?
And how come it’s so hard?
It’s not always easy and
Sometimes, life can be deceiving
I’ll tell you one thing: it’s always better when we’re together
Mmm, it’s always better when we’re together
Yeah, we’ll look at the stars when we’re together
Well, it’s always better when we’re together
Yeah, it’s always better when we’re together”

23. The Sweetest Thing U2

“My love she throws me like a rubber ball
Oh oh oh, the sweetest thing
She won’t catch me or break my fall
Oh oh oh, the sweetest thing
Baby’s got blue skies up ahead
But in this, I’m a raincloud
You know she likes a dry kind of love
Oh oh oh, the sweetest thing.”

24. Sunshine – Jonathan Edwards

“I know that it’s wrong, 
hey, but all day long, I can’t stop the way I feel.
Sunshine, go away today,
I don’t feel much like dancing.”

25. Lullaby Dixie Chicks

“They didn’t have you where I come from
Never knew the best was yet to come
Life began when I saw your face
And I hear your laugh like a serenade
Lullaby, goodnight, my angel, time to close your eyes.”

26. Banana Pancakes – Jack Johnson

“But just maybe
Halaka ukulele, mama made a baby
Really don’t mind the practice
‘Cause you’re my little lady
Lady, lady love me
‘Cause I love to lay here lazy
We could close the curtains
Pretend like there’s no world outside
Then we could pretend it all the time
And can’t you see that it’s just rainin’?”

27. Angel Sarah McLachlan

“Spend all your time waiting
For that second chance
For a break that would make it okay
There’s always some reason
To feel not good enough
And it’s hard at the end of the day
I need some distraction
Oh a beautiful release
Memories seep from my veins
Let me be empty
Oh and weightless and maybe
I’ll find some peace tonight.”

28. Blackbird –The Beatles

“Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise
Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these sunken eyes and learn to see
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to be free
Blackbird, fly”

29. Bless the Broken Road – Rascal Flatts

I spent just passing through, 
I’d like to have the time I lost and give it back to you.
Every long-lost dream led me to where you are.”

“There’s nothin’ you can do that can’t be done
Nothin’ you can sing that can’t be sung
Nothin’ you can say, but you can learn how to play the game
It’s easy
Nothin’ you can make that can’t be made
No one you can save that can’t be saved
Nothin’ you can do, but you can learn how to be you in time
It’s easy
All you need is love”
