Lady Gaga has proven to be one of today’s hottest stars. Incredibly musical, always theatrical and undeniably relevant, she has quickly captured the attention of the entire globe. Gaga’s catchy songs, provocative music videos and outspoken convictions have made way for a legion of dedicated fans. Baby Blanket Music’s album features instrumental arrangements of hits such as Just Dance, Poker Face, Bad Romance and The Edge of Glory.
The distinctive Baby Blanket Music collection features unique lullaby arrangements of favorite songs from favorite artists. Music from Madonna, Michael Jackson, Elton John, Billy Joel, John Mayer, Simon & Garfunkel, Garth Brooks and The Beatles is offered in addition to the new Lady Gaga release.
“As our line continues to expand, we are excited to introduce the songs of Lady Gaga,” said Josh Rutt, founder and CEO of Baby Blanket Music. “Arranging these edgy, contemporary tunes in a way that holds true to the Baby Blanket Music sound has been a welcomed challenge and pleasure.”
In the past you may have heard me wax on about Rock-a-bye Baby Music and now I have discovered another similar CD style in instrumental electronic renditions of popular songs. As a person that loves music but doesn’t memorize band names I was pleased listening to this Lady Gaga Baby Blanket Music CD at just how many songs I recognize from the radio. I say it would be great to know the lyrics and sing some things along to myself while my girls get to hear great instrumental rhythm. It really does make enjoying children’s music easier.

Created in 2009 by Josh Rutt, New York-based teacher, composer and performer, Baby Blanket Music was developed under the guidance of a wide range of doctors, teachers and child development specialists. As his closest friends began having children, Rutt carefully observed and participated in their babies’ development. He soon discovered that there was room for improvement in the quality of baby music that was available on the market. As a result, Rutt set out to create a distinctive line of music designed to appeal to babies, parents and grandparents alike. A lifelong student of music with a dynamic career focused on working with children, his development of Baby Blanket Music came naturally.
Designed to soothe while enhancing the enjoyment and cognition of music, Baby Blanket Music features familiar baby sounds like vibraphones and music boxes paired with a full medley of rich, classical instruments including strings, woodwinds, pianos, harps and soft percussion. Together, these instrumental arrangements create gentle textures that are calming and enjoyable to ears of any age.
