the music of sleep

for the past 10 days or so i've listened to the same 3 songs right before i fall asleep. actually, sometimes i fall asleep in the middle of the second one (i think). anyway, these are my nighttime songs as of late:

knife by grizzly bear
blood bank by bon iver
pitter patter goes my heart by broken social scene

i used to have to have the tv to fall asleep but a few weeks ago i started to get really annoyed with the light from the tv so i turned it off. the silence bothered the crap out of me so i decided to try listening to music and it works really well! i remember when i was a kid i used to listen to a cassette tape that played the pachelbel canon over and over and over with ocean sounds in between each play of the song. that makes me laugh.

what do you do to fall asleep?

My daughter listened to that same CD I think. Except she called it "Taco Bells Cannon for Me". She's 22 now and would probably vomit if she knew I had just shared that...buahahaha!

I always tune to the public radio-run all classical station here. Most nights it's very relaxing. Then there's those random nights when I'm woken up because they're playing some super loud piece full of thunderous drumming. :)
