Good music to sleep to.

Give me some suggestions of music that is good to go to sleep while listening at. I'd like some more unknown artists.

A few samples of swedish artists for your pleasure:
Grenada - Amazing it seems
Sophie Zelmani - Time to kill
Stina Nordenstam - Little Star

This may not be your thing (probably won't be), but I listen to alot of Black metal/death metal when I'm going to sleep. Much of it is so fast it's kind of hypnotizing... knocks me right out.

As for some bands:
Nile
Satyricon
Morbid Angel
DarK Funeral
Marduk

I like to listen to a double CD set called Deep and Chilled Euphoria. It's ambient music that is pretty relaxing great for background music to sleep.

the Blade Runner soundtrack, by Vangelis. every single song on that CD is perfect for bed time, or just relaxing in general.

As crazy as this sounds, I find it really easy to fall asleep listening to Megadeth and Metallica. I'm kinda weird though.

LOTR score and Sarah McLachlan. Both are sleepy music and rainy day music. Something Corporate's song Konstantine is a great song for before bedtime.

yea, Sarah McLachlan is amazing to fall asleep to. Also some very thought-inspiring lyrics if you pay attention. Do What You Have To Do is my personal favourite.

My clock radio is always set to oldies....at night they hardly ever play commercials and I don't find myself trying to follow the music because I already have heard it all......Plus I set it so that it shuts off in 90 min....I love oldies!

This is great music to listen to when you want to sleep, very relaxing and the songs last about 20 minutes each.

Anything by Rabbit In The Moon, or Tranceport by Paul Oakenfold. The Oakenfold CD is about 5 years old so there is some quality to and to this day I've only heard been awake past the 4th track twice.

I'm with the metalheads, a bit of loud music relaxes me. On the opposite end of the spectrum, Javanese Gamelan orchestra music is relaxing (not Balinese, it's quite disruptive to sleep patterns.) Japanese instrumental folk music can also be relaxing, as can ancient Japanese meditation hymns. Yes, I listen to all of that.

An interesting thing to look at, maybe it's not technically music, is a cassette called "Astral Sounds." It's a collection of synthesized sounds designed to stimulate the pleasure center of the brain, and can be used for meditation and relaxation. It's used in some hospitals as an alternative to painkillers and as a sleep aid.

You can fall asleep to GY!BE? Wow! Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love them, but the crescendos in their songs would just wake me right up.

If I need to sleep, I play either Aphex Twin's "Selected ambiant sounds vol.II", Cat Power's "Covers Album", a few tracks from the "Plunkett & MacCleane" soundtrack or almost anything by the Black Heart Procession.

Once, along time ago, I was staying with my cousin. everynight he would put on Santana or Chicago. AS LOUD AS HE COULD!! I asked him on the 4th night if he could turn it down abit. (I would have asked sooner but I didn't want to look square.) He said fine and the next night he didn't play anything at all. Around 11pm I heard "MARGARET!!! MARGARET!!!" over and over again. It was his grandmother who had dementia calling for her daughter-in-law.(my aunt) After about 20 minutes of this I walked over and put "houses of the holy" at max and fell asleep. Now a days I just have a fan next to my bed.

I like to listen to some ambient once in a while when going to sleep.. Stuff like The Orb maybe.

Also, a wonderful record, very dream-like itself, is Boards of Canada's Music Has The Right To Children. I haven't listened to their lastest album yet but i've heard it's very much alike.. Highly recommended.

Dead Can Dance, especially their album "Spiritchaser" is full of hypnotising mellow rhythms. Not at all boring, but very soothing. One day I had to work at 4:00 pm, this was after spending the past night tripping, I was a wreck at the prospect of going to work, right before I left for work I played a song from this album and it calmed my nerves right down! Billie Holiday is quite soothing, as long as the depressiveness doesn't get to you.

Almost anything in the "chillout" type of trip-hop/ambient electronic music. I find it's great for falling asleep, relaxing, or studying.

I have a CD called "Essential Late Night Listening" It has a lot of that type of music on it, and is great for falling asleep to.
