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.






Kent! 



Chelsey!



Chuck!



Wendy!



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 Brent....now 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!
