Child development expert Caspar Addyman, musical psychologist Lauren Stewart, and Grammy winner Imogen Heap claim they have created a simple upbeat tune called “The Happy Song,” that makes babies happy. And parents claim it really does work.
A simple upbeat melody combined with sounds like "beep, beep," "choo, choo," and "whee," animal noises and infant laughter, is fused together to keep babies interested and make them happy.
While the song might drive parents a little batty after listening to it repeatedly, it’s certainly much better than hearing a baby cry. The next step in the research is to determine exactly why the song works to soothe fussy babies and what happens in the brain when little kids hear it.
