A devastatingly beautiful modern day lullaby from one of my all time favorite albums ever:
David Gilmour - On an Island (2006):

Though my bias maybe blind me to it's relevancy to pop music.

My favorite newish lullabye, I used to play this for Mo when he was a baby.

The Bare Naked Ladies: When You Dream....

I couldn't find a better video or version of this really beautiful song, sorry, so here's the full lyrics:

With life just begun, my sleeping new son
has eyes that roll back in his head
They flutter and dart, he slows down his heart
and pictures a world past his bed
It's hard to believe
As I watch you breathe
Your mind drifts and weaves

When you dream,
what do you dream about?
When you dream,
what do you dream about?
Do you dream about
music or mathematics
or planets too far for the eye?
Do you dream about
Jesus or quantum mechanics
or angels who sing lullabies?

His fontanelle pulses with lives that he's lived
With memories he'll learn to ignore
And when it is closed, he already knows
he's forgotten all he knew before
But when sleep sets in
history begins
But the future will win

When you dream,
what do you dream about?
When you dream,
what do you dream about?
Are they colour or black and white,
Yiddish or English
or languages not yet conceived?
Are they silent or boisterous?
Do you hear noises just
loud enough to be perceived?
Do you hear Del Shannon's "Runaway" playing
on transistor radio waves?
With so little experience,
your mind not yet cognizant
Are you wise beyond your few days?
When you dream,
what do you dream about?
When you dream,
what do you dream about?

On the recorded version there are several minutes of silence between this song and the next -- it just lulls you into a lovely quiet feeling.
