Music To Fall Asleep To

Today, via JFH's Twitter account, I had the sudden urge to quiz those monitoring their Twitter feeds about what music they enjoy falling asleep to. When I was younger, I used to always lie in bed with my CD player (Yep.. this was pre-iPod days!), and fall asleep to whatever new music I was into at the time. Of course, I didn't always fall asleep to what I would listen to, but over the years, some tried-and-true records have been great go-to's as a send off to dreamland.

Since I don't really fall asleep to music as much as I used to, and since the wonderful world of mp3 players opens up a whole new wonderful world called "playlists," my go-to full-length albums are mostly old school. One of the oldest is also a deliciously melancholy release in Sixpence None The Richer's self-titled album. It's still a favorite. Another gem is Plumb's lullaby album, Blink. It's a great mellow pop record that you don't have to be a youngin' to enjoy. It's soothing and a nice means to drift away. Jars of Clay's self-titled used to be a favorite as well. And Eisley's Combinations -- which is also sort of more recent -- was a great one too. Jon Foreman's acoustic work also comes to mind.

How about you guys? What music do you love that's perfectly soothing enough to you to fall asleep to?

 

-- John
