Lute is pretty mellow…
The tv show The First 48 always puts me to sleep. The announcer’s voice lulls me right in.
No Black MIDI on the list?
It’s their meaningless lyrics that does it every time! I opened for them once.
It’s only the greatest album of it’s century according to the experts. I listen to it about once or twice a week and it never gets tired or old. The Vinyl version is the only way to really listen to it, though, so for me I’d have to get up and take the needle off, hence, I listen while in bed, but not while sleeping if you get my drift....lol
Black MIDI is so relaxing! Lol.
Why can't we vote for more than one?
Plus, "classical" and "jazz" are massive categories. I don't care for Baroque music, which along with Romanticism is usually lumped together with Classical. Romantic music is ok, but it's not relaxing usually pretty much by definition.
And jazz . . . there's Kind of Blue or Alone in San Francisco, and then there's *****es Brew.
I can relax to all kinds of stuff -- Lou Reed's Coney Island Baby, most Sigur Ros stuff, Thelonious Monk, Miles Davis, downtempo dripping wet surf jams, Beethoven, Satie, Lagoya . . . and this
I bought "Kind Of Blue" shortly after it was released, back when I was in high school at dear old M&A (High School of Music and Art) c. 1960. I still have that album, it's pretty worn out so I also have the CD version. To me Miles' music is too interesting to be relaxing.
There is a speed/pitch difference between the vinyl and the digital versions which has to do with the machine that the original vinyl was mastered on. It’s a very subtle difference but one that makes the vinyl sound better according to the experts. It’s one of those records every musician should know intimately.
Chamber music, some electronica and jazz.
Depends on what I'm doing and what mood I'm in.
Generally classic rock or blues, but sometimes smooth jazz.
Not ska or punk, because I find them energizing rather than relaxing.
Not country - I mostly find it annoying.
Other than that, there is nothing I have heard that I don't find relaxing. I said classical because it tops the list but really it all works.
It varies. Celtic harp and folk, soft jazz, mediaeval folk-rock (Blackmore's Night!), all kinds of odds and ends.
Overall would have to say blues (Muddy, Wolf, Johnny Winter). When I really want (or need) to totally chill it would have to be Dark Side of the Moon (even after all these years sometimes the clocks on Time gets me lol).
It's a shame but I really don't find any kind of music relaxing. Have spent so long trying to learn to play and write and stuff that I have a hard time turning off my analytical brain and relaxing. So, I often find things inspirational, but seldom relaxing.
I'm no "expert" (thank goodness!), not even sure I'm a "musician," but I wore the dad-gum lp out so I guess I know it pretty intimately. The cd serves quite nicely as a very acceptable substitute, speed/pitch difference be dammed.
Nice! Great Sunday morning music.
Need multiple choices in the poll.
I can find just about anything relaxing depending on my mood. Music that is heavier and harsher tends to amp me up a bit, which can be beneficial if I'm really down.
