While it's most parents' goal to get their little ones to bed without giving them nightmares, those looking to make bedtime a little spookier might want to reach for Baby Rockstar's Lullaby Renditions of the Nightmare Before Christmas. More subdued than Danny Elfman's original score, this kid-friendly outing smooths the edges off the original, turning down the grandiosity and replacing the vocals with gentle percussion. While not exactly scary, there's still something vaguely creepy about the reworked versions of these songs, so unless you're looking to mold your child into the next Tim Burton, you may want to look for something a little less ominous to play for the kids as they go to sleep.
