Lee DeWyze, "Beautiful Day," and songs for giving birth

Did you hear Lee DeWyze sing U2's "Beautiful Day" after winning "American Idol" last night?

I didn't. I was asleep or cleaning up the kitchen. I rely on Reality Check's great recaps to keep me up to date. (Here's her account of last night's Idolfest.)

I was interested in taking a listen of DeWyze's version of "Beautiful Day," though, because I chose the original "Beautiful Day" as an inspirational song to listen to while giving birth to my first child. It's meant a lot to me ever since.

DeWyze's version was pleasant enough (see a previous performance below), but it didn't have the same passion or power for me. (It's hard to compete with Bono's vocals and The Edge on guitar.) I'm not sure it would have gotten me through labor.

What songs inspired you when you were giving birth? Or did you prefer the sound of silence?
