With the birth of a new Mountbatten-Windsor, the world is all eyes and ears about the development of the latest in the line for the British throne. As we have heard from recent posts by HVB, shaping the musical tastes of an infant is important…and difficult. But considering that this boy could one day have the power to rock the musical interests of a large island’s youth, I think we need to lend a helping hand. If we were to send our own care package of love and excellent musical taste, which thematically relevant tracks or artists would we recommend for Baby Royal? Would we include something from Prince? How about Royal Trux? I’d like to send along Madness’s “The Prince.”

I am particularly interested in the selections of Rock Town Hall’s British and former commonwealth friends.

  1. I’m thinking Tom Petty’s “The Waiting.” I don’t know if this kid qualifies to inherit the throne, but the way the Queen keeps ticking, Charles must be worried she’ll outlive him.

    How about “Who’ll Stop the Reign” by Heaven 17?

  3. I don’t follow this royalty stuff, but has this Royal Baby been given a name yet? If not, I would propose that along with a song/message we also suggest a name. I think the Royal Couple should give him a trendy celebrity baby name, say a fruit name, like Quince. Prince Quince.

    Great idea, Mod!

    No name, as of yet (to my knowledge). I believe that the front runners are George and James, although Obama is apparently in the mix at something like odds of 200:1.

    I would propose the name of Shuggie. Sugarman – what could be cooler?

    The Dominion of Canada (not a member of the Empire but still a member of the Commonwealth) would like to offer the new prince a token to keep him humble in his developing years.

    Ah, the anti-lullaby!

  7. I’m gonna have to go with Love & Rockets’ “No Big Deal”.

    This one seems easy: “My Name Is Prince”

  9. machinery

    God Save the Queen too easy?

    Or anything from Tenpole Tudor 🙂

  10. Last night at band practice, long dormant Townsman Sonny suggested “England’s Newest Shit Maker”
