Do you listen to music when you go to bed?

    I used to, but can't anymore. I can fall asleep to music, but as soon as it ends I totally wake up.

    I often just listen to the music, so I can't fall asleep.

    Yes i do!
    My psp has a sleep function so after my playlist finishes, it goes in to power save mode and wakes me up when its time.

    I tell you, there's nothing like Onset Of Putrefaction while you sleep!
  4. Yes. I usually listen to music for 30 minutes and then go to bed.
  5. I have to have some thing going to cover the noise of my tinnitus.

    BIG +1 silence wakes me up faster than anything :(
  7. I listen to SUNN O))) while I fall asleep. At maximum volume. Nothing like drone-doom to blanket out all weirdness and strange sounds.

    Yes, I usually will. For the most part, I'll listen to the music for a while, then fall asleep, then wake up 6 or 7 songs after the last one I can remember before drifting off, at which point I turn off the ol' iPod and go back to sleep.
  9. Agreed. I sleep with a little fan on, and have for years, regardless of the time of year (I'll run it in the dead of winter, no exceptions). I always sleep much poorer in a place that doesn't have some audible amount of white noise, preferably a fan.

    To answer the OP, I used to listen to music a lot during the night, but I find sometimes I forget to charge my iPod beforehand, and it doesn't make it through the night and I don't have enough time to charge it up before I go to school, so I don't as much. I also dislike getting tangled up in my headphones.

    Nope. I find myself analyzing the music and my mind never really gets to sleep mode.

    I used to always listen to my walkman when I'd go to sleep, and the sound of it stopping or flipping over would always wake me up every 30 minutes or so.
  12. No but a friend does, and whenever I crash there I can't sleep because I analyze the music too much. Not to mention its usually death metal or something of the sort, and it isn't played quietly either.

    I've been sleeping with a fan since I was a kid, and I literally can NOT sleep without one. Something about the constant roar of a fan is relaxing to me and puts me to sleep pretty quick.

    Sometimes, but i usually end up going downstairs and playing bass.
  14. Lately I have been. I'll listen to anywhere from 3-10 songs on my MP3 player as I lay in bed most nights.

    The music energizes me, so listening to it before I go to bed would be bad.

    Yeah, nothing like listening to Acid King through some real nice headphones to get you in the mood for sleep.

    can't sleep without it.
  18. I can not really get to sleep when listening to music... When music is playing I tend to... listen to it..? Usually makes me get up and play a bit of bass =P There are a few random songs that are very post rock, long drawn kind of ambient stuff, but other than that, I have to have a fan or something going.
