Music for the unborn

 I have read that from at least the 23rd week on, a preborn baby's hearing is developed enough to enable him to respond to outside noise. Babies seem agitated by rock music, kicking violently when they hear it (hmm...maybe I misunderstood the headbanging at 'Rage against the machine' ) and are calmed by classical music. Even the five-month-old foetus has been found to have discriminating musical ears. I am not quite ready to listen to classical music everyday, because it makes me nervous = equals nervous baby, so I am trying to put together a playlist that will become the soundtrack of my unborn baby’s early life. I have read somewhere that they recognise it after they are born, and that it will soothe them when they feel distressed. Worth trying, no?
I was thinking Zero7, Amy Winehouse, Air, Moby & on other moments I'm thinking other classics like Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, The Doors, Nirvana (the softer songs, I mean) or Jazz, or does it need Rap & R&B to survive in this world?
Euhm, or maybe will just try to stay a bit of rock 'n roll.
