30 Day Music Challenge - Day 10

Song That Makes You Fall Asleep

Music doesn't really help me fall asleep.  It usually has the opposite effect.  But if I had to pick, it would be something really long, with complicated lyrics.  So let's go with this seven minute song about the middle east by Tom Waits.





I would just like to say that this is the only category that has four picks by you guys that I am not familiar with. So at least it has that going for it.


  1. I'll be away from my desk all say today, but I can up everyone's songs tonight or tomorrow.

  2. I have used Brightblack Morning Light, Grouper, and How to Dress Well to try and help me fall asleep recently.

    I can't really fall asleep to music because I have to use headphones out of deference to my lovely wife, who is usually sleeping soundly while I toss and turn. I need better headphones. Comfy headphones that don't feel like anything that you can sleep in.

    I will pick Friend of Time by Brightblack Morning Light.

  3. I guess it's my turn to decry the theme of the day. I too can't use music to make me fall asleep. I really don't know what to pick. Bjork's music has always had a certain waking dream like quality to me so I guess I'll pick one of her songs. Pagan Poetry. There you go.

  4. This is interesting because I don't think I listened to music to fall asleep until I met I am hooked and I can't fall asleep without it.

    Usually I like to listen to things I don't know the words too or music that is soft but I never really got hooked on during waking hours (such as Beach House).

    I also really like falling asleep to Iron and Wine and when Brent isn't sleeping in the same bed I listen to Jeff Buckley because I know Brent doesn't like him but I really do. So because it is always a special occasion to get to listen to Jeff Buckley I will pick Last goodbye.

  5. Wendy!

    Put me down for never falling asleep to music either. If I did, it might be to Radiohead. Maybe Weird Fishes/Arpeggi?

  6. I liked to apply for extra points for first song with a video with nudity in it. You are all welcome!
