I'm trying to put together a CD to celebrate last night's birth of Sophie, my first niece..
I've got a decent selection of songs, spread across various genres and languages, but virtually none of them are dedicated to a girl/woman by the name of Sophie, or have the name Sophie anywhere in the song .. so I'm looking for decent songs that do answer to that criteria..

yes, I'm aware there is a song that is indeed called "song for Sophie"..but I said "decent song"..not utterly forgettable minor/local pop-hits

any other suggestions for songs dedicated to motherhood, mothers, daughters, lullabies, birth and what have you, are welcome: genre is not a limitation, quality is..and the CD is more for my sister than it is for the newborn, but if it happens to not be music that would keep a newborn awake or give her nightmares, that would be a bonus.

P.S. no, songs by singers whose first name is Sophie do not count.

On songs about family and children, "White Wine in the Sun" by Tim Minchin and "Family Business" by Kanye West get me every time. I won't link to them because they both also go over religion lightly, Minchin's more than West's, and West's song uses the n-word a couple of times.

The band Live has a song called Sofia on their last album which is called Songs From Black Mountain. I kind of like it. Best I can offer.

Here ya go...

How about a book? There's a nice introductory book to Philosophy named Sophie's World.

mmmh...it's kinda heavier than little Sophie herself, I fear..

I've gone with a slightly random selection instead.. kinda themed..but not entirely.
thank you all for your efforts anyway, Sophie would appreciate..if she did anything other than sleep, eat and poop..
