Music that you can Nap To.....
Been meaning to ask this and just today getting to it....
I love taking a good sunday afternoon nap and throwing on the headphones to unwind with a favorite music album....the trick here is finding the albums that have some mellow songs all the way through without 1 or 2 tunes that kick into high gear with heavy riffs or drum rolls that break the napping mood. So my question...what are you favorite "napping" CDs? Or put another way.....what are some good cds that are fantastic while at the same time not over the top sonically with the insanely energetic middle song.
My 3 faves are....
Pink Floyd-Meddle (the middle part of echoes can be annoying but after One of these Days love the guitar work and the vibe)
Bob Dylan-Blood on the Tracks
Any suggestions I can add to my napping collection?

I tend to put on the live album "Ladies & Gentelmen, Emerson Lake & Palmer" it is a three record set with many great instramental tracks. Very relaxing.

Is it weird that I used to use Tupac's me against the world cd for this?

DO NOT use ANYTHING by new age electronic harp player Hillary Stagg. That **** gave me daymares!
No kidding! You'd think it was nice, mellow music to relax to...but it seriously screws with your mind. And I have NEVER taken any sort of psychotropic drugs.
Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Bullets are cheap. Life is priceless.
