Hey guys, I always seem to need music playing when I fall asleep, I was wondering if you folks have any suggestions. I'd love to make a mix of songs either having to do with sleep or that are veeeeery soothing. Here's my ideas so far, subject to change:

Sleep - Phish
The Inlaw Josie Wales (soooothing) - Phish
Lullabye - Ben Folds Five
Wild World - Cat Stevens
When I Fall (soothing) - Barenaked Ladies

Nothing extremely wussified, but not hardcore, you can see what I'm after. Suggestions?

i usually put on a little Beethoven or Mozart...very relaxing. but if you are looking more for "popular" music, try Blur - Tender
The Fly's - Got you where i want you
any Dynamite Hack song :D
can't think of anymore off the top of my head

I used to fall asleep to Aphex Twin's Melodies From Mars and DJ Spooky's Songs of a Dead Dreamer almost every night. Phish was always good too.

<< Planet Caravan -black sabath or Pantera >>



Did I mention I am not a metal fan? I don't know if that's exactly the genre to describe them...but still...

Any particular Ben Harper? A lot of his stuff that I have is upbeat....and the slow one (Another Lonely Day) is just too depressing.

I'm not actually 100% sure that is it Toto. It might be Brian Eno. Anyway, it's VERY soothing song! Ethereal

EDIT: Checked. IMDB gives it's author as Brian Eno

Other good songs from the Dune soundtrack:

Take my Hand
Final Dream
Paul Meets Chani

Other good songs:

Vangelis: Intergalactic Radio Station
Vangelis: Into Eternity
Vangelis: One More kiss, Dear (Bladerunner soundtrack)
Vangelis: Memories of Green (Bladerunner)
Vangelis: Wait for me
Vangelis: Losing Sleep
Vangelis: Elsewhere

Vivaldi: 4 seasons: Spring

Sarah Brightman: Tu quires Volver
Sarah Brightman: The music of the Night
Sarah Brightman: This Love

EDIT: Even more ;)

Julee Cruise: The World Spins
Julee Cruise: Summer kisses, Winter tears
Julee Cruise: Rockin' back inside my heart
Julee Cruise: I float alone

But, even with all those songs, I still rank Brian Eno as best in this particular category :). In fact, I just checked a bit of Brian Eno's biography... He's the guy who coined the term "Ambient music"!

No doubt! Add to the list "Tubular Bells" Side 1 is one of my favorite pieces of music (that's track one for you non-vinyl young-uns)

Here is what I listen to when falling asleep to Ben Harper:

Another Lonely Day<--depressing yes, but I connect with the song and it has a nice sound to it
Beloved One
Ashes
Waiting on an Angel
Welcome To The Curel World
Walk Away
Sexual Healing

I enjoy listening to Silverchair's "Neon Ballroom" cd. Especially the song "Emotion Sickness", brilliant I tell you.
