    Re: Most relaxing song ever?

    This will probably sound weird if you're not familiar with the album but Nine Inch Nails "Still" album is my favorite for relaxing. Dark Side of the Moon and Wish you Were here are right up there though

      Anybody try the Adagietto from Mahler's 5th yet?
      I did listen, and it is relaxing.

      But Debussy's masterpiece still takes top spot all time for me.

          If you can find it on SACD, (and have a Blu-Ray player capable of SACD playback) listen to it in DTS-Neo6, reclined in your rooms sweet spot, with your favorite beer in hand. Or hard liquor depending on how bad your day has been.

          If you want to wake up though, theres always pretty much anything by All That Remains :D

                  Something in that article caught my attention: that they said the song was somehow "timed" to our natural rhythms or something to that effect. It reminded me of a song I did for a game several years ago. It's built around a "breathing" chord progression. Is it relaxing? You decide.


                  I will give you a few warnings, though. First, there is no post-production done on this at all... no dynamic compression or EQ or anything. Second, it's from a GameBoy Advance game, which was somewhat limited in its ability to play back music. But still, I did the best I could.
                  I won't rest until I've TMM all the things!

                    +1 on that the whole "Wish You Were Here" disc was a frequent decompressor for me.

                        Actually, I think it's Eugene Levy, and yes, that's one funny skit.

                          I think he's just a tad sharp at 0:58 then a bit flat at 1:20.
