|Written by||Johannes Brahms|
The tune commonly referred to as "Brahms' Lullaby" was written by Johannes Brahms. It is his Opus 49, Number 4, written in 1868 as "Wiegenlied." It has become associated with sleep in a number of pop culture references.
A mother sings the lullaby to a baby as part of the opening montage in Elmo's World: Singing. In the same episode, Big Bird sings it (in "la-la's") to Radar, making Elmo sleepy. Ernie has sung it to Bert on one occasion, and to himself on another.
- It was one of many classical pieces played by the Birdapest Symphony Orchestra as part of the album Elmo and the Orchestra.
