"Hushabye Mountain" is a ballad by the songwriting team Robert and Richard Sherman. It appears twice in the 1968 Albert R. Broccoli motion picture Chitty Chitty Bang Bang: first as an idyllic lullaby by Caractacus Potts (Dick Van Dyke) to his children; and later when the children of Vulgaria have lost all hope of salvation. The song is also featured prominently in the 2002 and 2005 stage musical versions.
The song has been covered by many artists. Dakota Fanning sang the song in Steven Spielberg's 2005 release of War of the Worlds. David Gilmour performed the song at his 2001-2 semi-acoustic solo performances, as captured on the David Gilmour in Concert DVD. British cellist Julian Lloyd Webber recorded the song on his 2006 album Unexpected Songs. Stacey Kent recorded a version of this song for her album Dreamsville (2001). A version of the song was used in a Boots No7 commercial, directed by Dougal Wilson.
