30 Songs in 30 Days: day 10 – a song that makes you fall asleep

There aren’t many songs that make me fall asleep in and of themselves. If I’m tired enough, I’ll doze off to anything. And if there’s a song that really bores me that much, I just don’t listen to it.

So I’m going to fudge this one a little. One day when I was a sophomore or junior in high school, I spent an entire afternoon lying on my bed in the dark, wearing headphones and listening over and over and over to Side 2 of Talking Heads’ Fear of Music, consisting of the five tracks below. They didn’t exactly put me to sleep, but they nearly put me in an altered state of consciousness – as close to being very stoned as you can get without being very stoned.
