Around the World in 80 Dreams

Around the World in 80 Dreams

Playing tracks by

Sigur Ros, Mawaca, Sufjan Stevens, Sophie Meriem Rockwell, Magda Pucci and more.

A "lullaby" mix of music from various countries--some of it actual lullabies, some of it just sleepy--originally made for my newborn daughter back in 2007. As I've had so many requests to republish it (I originally made it available for download via an email to friends when my daughter was born), here it is...



Hey, is it possible to get a track list for this mix? Been in love with it forever and want to find all of these songs on their own.

@Ross - Thanks! Love to hear that you and your little one enjoy it. My daughter (who is now 4) still loves listening to this for "quiet time."

@flamdrags So glad you dug it!

I use this to get my little boy ready for bed from time to time. Nothing like sitting in front of the fire, reading stories and listening to these sweet melodies with my boy :-)


aaaaaaaaaaaaand, I just listened to this for 2 hours straight. Man, nice selections, for sure!


This is awesome! Thanks so much! Cheers!
