Evening Music

My my... how time flies. It's been a while since I posted! I am working on finishing my cruise pics and trip report, I promise.

I recently (like 3 min ago) went through my MP3 collection (well most of it) and pulled out a list of evening music, nite time music, going to bed music, or even falling asleep music. Music that isn't hard, doesn't have a driving beat, and doesn't get the heart racing.

It features some jazz, some acoustic, some classical, some rock, some christian bands, some old school, some new school.

There might be a few suprises. BoyzIIMen is definitely old school. I remember playing this CD in 7th grade for the 8th grade graduation with Brooke. Donna Lewis "I Love You, Always Forever": yeah, I know it's really pop-ish, but I like it. I bought this single CD the day I got my drivers' license, Monday Sept 30, 1996. Hillary Duff... what can I say, I think it's a good song! ;) I bought the Hootie album in Japan with Katie and Dave. Jars of Clay fits my mellow mood quite a bit, so they are well represented. Jim Brickman, I think this song was in my wedding. "Bittersweet" indeed! Journey's "Lights" makes me think of the bay bridge, covered in fog, with the city (*the* city) in the background. Makes me homesick every time. Shawn Mullins' "Lullaby" reminds me of freshman year of college. Snow Patrol is one of my new favorites. Starship's "Sara" reminds me of my first crush... in kindergarden! That was back when I had velcro shoes. You know the ones, and you had 'em too. Admit it!!

Do you listen to music before/when you go to bed or use music to start to relax and help fall asleep? If so, what are your favorites? Leave me a comment on!
