Earlier this week, Kim Kardashian posted a candid photo of her husband, Kanye West, with daughter, North, sleeping, which resulted in a number of photoshoppers creating memes of the Life of Pablo rapper. While these images of the hip-hop and fashion icon are pretty hilarious, we thought we'd help Kanye out with his sweet dreams by creating a playlist of lullabies that could help him get more sleep in the future while he worries about his alleged debt, Taylor Swift complaints and whatever else he's saying on Twitter.
First of all, let's take a look at the cute moment between the father and daughter, captured by one of the most-followed Instagram account holders in the world:

As you can see, North and Kanye don't exactly need help falling asleep, even while shopping, but we think that they can listen to the following songs and dream together on their own couch sometime!
1. Elliott Smith - "Say Yes"
A few years back, there was a mashup album of West and Smith, which is definitely something to check out. Kanye has some great taste in music, but I haven't heard him talk about Elliott Smith, one of the most important singer-songwriters of the last 20 years. He's probably heard "Say Yes" before, and if he has, it has to be one of his favorite tunes. But North definitely needs to hear it, even if it's lulling her to sleep.
This song is obviously a bit more upbeat, but the subject matter is spot on for this father-daughter moment. In fact, the swinging jazz beat and the soothing harmonica aren't brash enough to wake you up from a nap. Also, the background noise is sure to help the dozing.
Clearly this is a very inappropriate song for North to hear, but you can barely understand the lyrics and the whispering aspect of the performance is helpful for the lullaby aspect. Is it weird to call this song a lullaby?
If Kanye really believes that he is the most influential artist of all time, slipping in an Eno song is just me having some fun. The composer and producer is beyond comparison, and I just want to get that into West's head while he sleeps.
Again, this is another musician that is so great that I'd just think West's unconsciousness would weep to hear someone so talented.
Yes, this was a short playlist of lullabies and soft songs, but you're most likely snoozing right now if you listened to these five tracks!
