There's a lot of stuff that calms me down, like Boards of Canada or Burial and many others, but I'm just going to post my all time favorite tune:

Here's one of my favorites...


It's peaceful, elegant, perfect.



This is a very good one as well.

When I just want to keep a cool head, I'll put on some Tool.

Disposition


And also Reflection which comes up right after


Also listening to No Excuses by Alice in Chains always helped calm my nerves


Norwegian Wood, although short, always helped keep my mind off things too. Gotta love the Beatles

My latest calm down jam is A Hard Day's Night by The Beatles. Since the 2009 remasters, I'm discovering more and more reasons to revisit their absolute classic albums. The only one that I've not listened to after it's been tinkered with is The White Album, but that's because I'm a purist for that album and think any amount of tampering is sacrilege. Anyway, yeah, A Hard Day's Night is only about 30 minutes long but it's a perfect wind-down, chill-out album. It's music from a time when everything seemed easy, even in faces of adversity. It's just so timeless.

I was going to add some Windham Hill classics, but many people think WTF?! I got turned on to the "golden age" of New Age with a series of nature videos set to music, they really were a great way to enjoy such subtle music, the majestic nature of the World, like the Grand Canyon fly-overs set to acoustic music that was really laid back "easy listening" stuff

Haha. I actually saw Andreas Vollenweider a few times in the 80s.

Remember Yanni?! He used to rock out like Michael Bolton! He was in a small Minnesota band as keyboardist, and I recall one time on KQRS's For Headphones Only radio show, they played a tune with him and it was pretty dang good, only problem is I can't remember much of it, They'd play Pink Floyd and Genesis on that show and it was some kind of sonic nirvana (not the rock band!)

I remember this stuff from WELL before we had this thing called the Internet here

WOW, eh??

Normally a rap song has no place in a thread about calm songs, but this is a rare exception. The beat and lyrics combination is like some other world type s**t. alien.gif

A lot of songs by Jason Mraz fit the criteria. I've been listening to a lot of Frank Ocean lately, and his music is pretty soothing, too. However, the thing with Frank Ocean's songs is that they tend to be really deep and meaningful, so they'll get you thinking a lot. He's a pretty brokenhearted guy when it comes to his songs.

This has helped me so much these past few days, in terms of dealing with some sh*t going on.

The bulk of what I listen to might be considered calm down songs.

This came on my MP3 player during my commute home.

It's Leonard Cohen's elegy to Janis Joplin.


And while I'm here. How about another great tribute to Janis Joplin.
