Does zydeco music put babies to sleep?  I would have said “no, no no,” but you’ll see scientific video proof over on the blog Courtney Loves Jonathan.  Little Aiden’s eyelids droop and then close to the sound of Clifton Chenier.  It’s the Fais Do-Do Principle at work!  Remember that old time house dances had a room or a corner for babies and children to sleep while the adults danced.  Here’s astonishing proof.  A quick check of YouTube and Vimeo did not reveal any other videos.  Looks like this one is up for replication–any parents want to try Cajun music instead?  The world is dying to know what happens.
