    Music factors into my daily life about 60% of the time. I especially love music that relaxes/calms me. Might be after a long day and I play it as I am fixing something to eat, or on a Saturday morning while i am laying in bed, for doing laundry, or even getting ready to sleep, the list goes on. Here are some of my favorites. Share yours too.

    Lancer, thanks for the links, I enjoy all kinds of music and it's always great being introduced to new artists and composers. I realized after reading your post I probably don't listen to music to relax so much as order and structure my thoughts. Outside of work, it's mostly jazz and classical when I'm in my own environment (home). Three pieces I find myself listening to in off hours to mentally rearrange




    But at work I usually use music as a wall to keep the nonsense and bs of childish coworkers away from me (it's not slow but it "relaxes" me in keeping me from growling at the fools on the job)

    I just listen to 90s R&B ballads to relax me. Love those songs.

    Me too! I have to say, I would never have appreciated classical music had it not been for ballet.

    I'm basically an 80 yr old man, so it's no surprise that no other music relaxes me like an Anita Baker playlist. A homie who recently passed used to always rag on me abt it. But yea, that's the best way to get me to have some chill.

    I'd also say a Camp Lo playlist (u have to be 30+ to know them) also gets me to stop raging.

    This has rekindled my love for John Mayer. I need to get his New Album. I like that he loves the kids and remember stories that Andy Cohen would say about John Mayer dragging him to Gay clubs and will try to hook him up with guys and was a great wing man. I love artist that are not afraid to show love to ALL their fan base.

    I'll be the odd ball...The music I listen too, is either newage space, orchestra music and the like. Jerry Goldsmith music tends to take me on a mental journey. It's really the only type of music I listen to. I do listen others with actual lyrics but generally it's all instrumentals for me or maybe Soundscape.

    One of my favorite tracks "The Unicorns" from Jerry Goldsmith's score.

    1:20-1:56 & 6:00 to the end always gives me a mental rush. The blending of instruments is ethereal to me. It eases my mood and makes me think of a new dawn over the horizon or the rebirth of ambition in the Spring.
