Popular song when your baby was born.

A song popped into my head today and it brought back such vivid memories of sitting in bed cradling my newborn , tears pouring down my cheeks as I listened to it .I knew that this baby would be my last, no more tiny newborns to cuddle, no more of that enchanting new baby scent, the end of an era.

The song was "Turn". Where are you going, my little one, my little one , little sunsuits and petticoats, all of them gone. Turn around and you're tiny, turn around and you're grown, turn around and you're a young wife with babes of your own.

When I was pregnant with my third child I found out that he was a boy from a scan but Mr R had said he didn't want to know what we were having, therefore no one knew. During this time a song called "Let's Hear it for the Boy" was released. This became a very special song to me.......especially as I had wanted a boy. Even now when I hear this song it brings back all the memories of having my precious son, who is 37 now and still my precious son smile

When I came round after my emergency caesarean I felt a huge rush of pleasure and could hear fabulous heavenly music playing. I looked round the single room but there was no radio. It was all in my head courtesy of hormones and anaesthetic! smile

Annie's Song.

I don't really remember any particular songs, but when I was up with late night feedings with my youngest one, I would watch music videos on tv. I wouldn't be up long enough for the late night movies, and for some reason at 2 am the music videos were mostly rap. Coincidence or not, he likes rap music.

“Annie’s Song” when DD was born. This was back in the day when you stayed in hospital for a week after giving birth. Another new mum had a guitar with her, (as you do) and she played and sang this to the rest of us one evening. Can still picture the scene.

“When A Child Is Born” was number one the first Christmas I had our son, it reduced me to tears as I felt it was just for me and him.

I think it was some ridiculous "song" that was number one.
Dee da da da...
Something like that anyway.

Pie Jesu, I played or sang it (badlygrin) to my new born.
I was besotted (hormones)
I dont have contact now.

I heard it through the grape vine by Marvin Gaye when DD was born in 1969. When DS was born it was Ernie the fastest milkman in the west by Benny Hill.

Little drummer boy.I would sing this to my newly born first son
I cannot remember what was the top song when my second son was born.

I can't remember. blush

Probably Hark the Herald Angels Sing (it was Christmas).

It was Merry Christmas Everyone by Slade 🎄

Ah well, nothing nostalgic then 😄

I used to sing ‘Mull of Kintyre’ to mine to get her to sleep.

Baker Street by Gerry Rafferty.
The biggest selling single in 1978. 😊

On the night I was in labour with my first I watched Top of the Pops and Satisfaction - The Stones was number one.

Oops, grammar alert…you’re…having my baby.

Blinko Sat 27-Nov-21 17:37:16

Annie’s Song and Your Having My Baby - can’t remember who sang it though. Might have been Paul Anka…
