Last Saturday we gave Pam a rock and roll baby shower. Our friends Ted and Vicki provided the house and, in lieu of stupid shower games, a PS3 and Harmonix Rock Band 2. We like to think a good time was had by all. Three people who had not previously played Rock Band said they were tempted to buy it.

Sincere thanks to everyone who came.

It seemed appropriate to rock out to baby-themed songs, so I set out to compile a list of songs in the Rock Band catalog containing "baby" in the title, band name, or lyrics. We actually played 10 or 15 of these at the party.

The "King of Baby" award goes to Stevie Ray Vaughan, whose 10-track album "Texas Flood" contains three instrumentals and seven "baby" songs. First runner-up honor goes to Roy Orbison, with four out of six.

I'm sure you are burning up with curiosity; I know I am. Without further ado, here is my list of Rock Band "baby" songs.
