    There are certian songs that almost never fail to sooth me or bring me to a quiet place of contemplation. Some of them are faith base so I will leave those for the lobby and list long time favorites. I've been around for a while so they are all pretty old songs.

    Right now I'm listening to " Melissa" by the Alman brohters. That song and "Blue Sky" always bring me to a good place. There is something about Greg Alman's voice and the guitars that soothes me.


    "Accross the Universe" and "A Day In The Life" by the Beatles.

    The music that soothes me the most is new age stuff like Steve Roach or Robert Rich. I can completely zone out when that sort of thing is playing. Otherwise I'm always listening to what the musicians are doing.

    I like to zone in. With a head full Mr. Owsley's best, and a big ol' sound system, Jimi Hendrix let me know we are elements of energy in the universe, and I was not alone in the world. After that it could be a solo by 'Prez' or Ben Webster, or the sweet voice of Smokey or Nilsson to let me know, it was all alright. For a ticket to super chill land, it could be a Vaughan Williams symphony (Lark Ascending could be the sweetest piece of arranged notes on the planet) or anything by Debussy. Got to be real....music that massages the heart.

    Ry Cooder, "Feeling Bad Blues". I can listen to this song over and over and not get tired of it.

    I generally don't care for soothing music - even at my age, but I guess the closest thing to it would be the beautiful voice of Emily Haines in the rock band Metric.
    Female singers sooth me.

    I would have to say Eva Cassidy for the soothing of both heart and soul. Her story will inspire you to follow your dreams. Unfortunately she left us at an early age due to breast cancer. Here are just a few of my favorites:

    I live in NJ so on the way home I listen to Classical music to avoid Road Rage! :)
