Your Bedtime Playlist

Recommended Posts

Anyone else ever sleep with their music on?

 

What type of music helps you fall asleep faster/better?

 

Personally, I like to listen to a lot of Spanish/Asian music when I sleep. I don't know, maybe it's because I can barely understand them, but they're very soothing. I've also been listening to Cypress Hill and a couple other stoner bands my friends recently introduced me to, which aren't bad for falling asleep to.

 

Post the artist or songs you prefer to listen to while you sleep, or maybe for when you want to relax.

If I listen to music to fall asleep it's usually either Tool's Lateralus [album] or 10 Year's The Autumn Effect [album]. Sometimes I switch it up to some Breaking Benjamin or Decombrio. But then, it's rare that I listen to music while falling asleep.

I usually put on some Iron & Wine, Justin King, or acoustic My Morning Jacket.

 

Generally, any acoustic guitar music is really soothing to me.

A 60-minute rain and thunder CD on repeat. Love the white noise.

 

 

This.

 

And ambiental stuff does the job perfectly for me. Some Moëvöt, Raison D'etre, the Ghosts album by Nine Inch Nails, all come to mind. Funeral metal is fine too. Oh, and the S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat soundtrack helps me a lot as well.

I don't really have so much of a playlist, but if I play music while in bed, I generally fall asleep listening to the BBC, or something by Otep.

It's strange, intuitively I'll always try and sleep to something soft and gentle when I'm trying to sleep on a journey, but I find the nuances and intricacies hold my attention too much. Slap on a bit of hard rock though and I'm sleeping like a baby. No idea why.

 

I never try and fall asleep to music at night though, doesn't do it for me.

I sleep with my iPod in every single night without fail. I don't have a particular playlist or whatever though, I just listen to whatever i'm big on at that point in time.

I've just recently started doing this as I've got early starts for work in the morning so my iPod on its dock means I can use the alarm feature on it.

For trying to get to sleep, I've made an hour and a half long playlist of acoustic stuff (Trampled By Turtles, Bob Dylan, Nils Lofgren, Regina Spektor, Frank Turner and a whole bunch of others). I don't do it every night but it doesn't seem to keep me up much later when I do.


It isn't in the castle, It isn't in the mist, It's a calling of the waters, As they break to show, The new Black Death, With reactors aglow, Do you think your security, Can keep you in purity, You will not shake us off above or below

I listen to every Deftones song I have on shuffle. Includes Diamond Eyes (album, including bonus tracks, ROCKET SKATES!), Simple Man (B-sides and Rarities), Battle-Axe and Minerva (Deftones), and lastly, Beware and Mein (Saturday Night Wrist). :thumbup:

Same. Music only really works for me unless I'm already exhausted and need to take a nap during the day or catching an early flight.

Either this, or the My Top Rated without rock playlist. It mostly is Indie stuff, like Local Natives, Tame Impala, The Submarines, Morning Benders, Yeasayer etc.

 

I love the My Top Rated playlist, cause on when you find a song you like and you want to add it to your playlist of favorite songs, just rate it 5 stars on your iphone/itunes and it automatically will add it, or rate less than 5 to take it off. It's better than constantly making playlists.

Im not really sure. I think it has something to do with the lower tones relaxing me.
