Most of my list thus far has followed a certain theme. Recently, it’s had a lot to do with going to the bar and having a good time.
Days 7 through 9 all relate to this theme, and Day 10 will, too, but only from a distance.
Day 10: A song I can fall asleep to
“Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” – Elton John
This song has a dreamlike quality to it. It progresses slowly, and John’s eccentric vocals rise and fall in pitch many times throughout. It’s the epitome of easy listening.
This is the kind of music I need after a night of drinking and partying. When I’m half-drunk or fully wasted, I need to get to sleep as soon as possible. I happen to love this song, so it’s the perfect choice for a song to fall asleep to.
Sometimes I’m too drunk to bother with music, of course, and other times it’s easier to fall asleep to death metal for some reason, but for the purpose of keeping this list as random and varied as possible, I prefer Elton John over Cannibal Corpse.
