If only it was that simple. I think Libby posted recently basically, "if lullabies don't interest me, they don't interest me". That hits the nail on the head for me.
I'm glad people like it. I wish I felt differently, but 'Hushabye' isn't, and won't be, in my CD collection.
The only response I can give to that argument is to misquote a certain starship science officer:
It's a Lullaby album, I-H-F, but not as we know it!
I'm not convinced about that, but I am still going to buy the US release. And cruel Decca had to put BOTW on the Japanese version, forcing me to need that, too. There's always the hope she might put that song on another album in the future, and I certainly hope she does, but there's no guarantee. I'm not taking any chances, so I'll have to get that one. Is it still available for pre-order, or are they still out?
Edit: It appears they have 17 copies, and say they will have more on the release date... if I understood them correctly.
I've seen that Morrisons don't seem to be stocking Hushabye anymore, I didn't expect them to have it for very long tbh though. I saw a copy of Hushabye in Tescos this morning though, which was surprising, it wasn't listed in the charts at all and didn't seem to have a place on the shelf, as all the gaps were full, but I found it in front of a One Direction album - I know which one I'd choose there . It was much more expensive than I've seen it anywhere else £17.99

Hi, If anyone would like a code for Brahms Lullaby from Starbucks please just ask. I had a trip to Northern Ireland got excited and picked up a couple of cards. Came home and of course can't redeem it on itunes Ireland!! DOH! Also if you just want the card as a keepsake I am sure I could post it to you! Tiger
Yes, I downloaded the additional tracks a few weeks ago from iTunes (Bau Bei too). Worth having I think, and at 79p a track a lot cheaper than paying these customs charges. It seems most of us in the UK got caught this time!
If anyone besides me decides to buy it, go for Barnes & Noble. They're the only ones who offer it at a reasonable price. Plus, once you buy something once, they'll send you discount codes! Of course, it doesn't work on pre-orders, but if you like other music besides Hayley, or books, you'll probably find use for the discounts.
I'm very disappointed in Amazon for continuing to list Hushabye with the high import price. I might complain to them about this. Not that I feel the need to do business with them so much anymore, since B & N seems to be the better service, as far as I'm concerned.
Actually, there are still some things I have to buy through Amazon, because B & N doesn't carry them (Mario Frangoulis' CDs). Or, actually they do, but it's a higher price, and that discount wouldn't make it any cheaper than Amazon. But otherwise, I prefer B & N. It seems like every company I've ordered from except for Amazon offers coupon codes every so often, and I tend to only purchase stuff when the coupon code comes along.
Is anyone else here buying the US version? I hope so. I feel like I'm the only Hayley fan who is, even though I'm not even crazy about it.
At last, the day before the release date, Amazon shows the price as $10.79! They sure took their time, didn't they? They even have track samples... maybe they did before, too, but the price threw me off and I didn't look. But they don't have prices on the mp3 tracks. Not that those prices would be any different than any other mp3 they sell.
The price is actually lower than BN's now, and they also have had the album artwork up the whole time, which BN has not. So, they have those 2 things going for them now.
It's currently ranked #13, 665 in music, and #68 in Lullabies.
I did my work and reminded people on the Josh Groban forum of the release date coming up, but I recommended B & N. I just think they're a better over-all service, in my experience so far. Also, I want to keep them in business. I don't want them going the way of Borders' books.
And of course, Joe and I have been doing our part by requesting Hushabye tracks for the radio show.
