Perry And Presley Among Favourite 'Lullabies'
ELVIS PRESLEY, GUNS N' ROSES, and KATY PERRY are enough to send you to sleep - they've topped a poll of "alternative lullabies".
The survey reveals modern parents prefer to sing their babies to sleep with rock songs and boyband ballads rather than traditional nursery songs.
Top of the list is British band Take That's Patience, followed by Robbie Williams' hit Angels, and Katy Perry's smash I Kissed A Girl.
Other surprising entries in the top ten include Wonderwall by Oasis, Welsh songstress Duffy's Warwick Avenue, and Sweet Child O' Mine by Guns N' Roses.
Parents taking part in the poll said it was easier to remember the words to modern songs, with many agreeing that traditional lullabies sound old fashioned.
Kathryn Crawford, from Thebabywebsite, which carried out the survey, said: "We were really surprised to find that mums would rather sing modern pop tunes than traditional lullabies. I expect most mums put the radio on when at home with the baby, and the catchy lyrics make it impossible to sing anything else at bedtime."
The Top Ten alternative lullabies are:
Patience - Take That
Angels - Robbie Williams
I Kissed a Girl - Kate Perry
You're Beautiful - James Blunt
Love Me Tender - Elvis Presley
Beautiful - Christine Aguilera
Warwick Avenue - Duffy
Sweet Child O' Mine - Guns N' Roses
Wonderwall - Oasis
Girl - Sugababes
