HuffPost Workouts: Songs to Help You Sleep

Posted: Updated:

These may not be your momma's lullabies, but they sure will ease you into a delicate slumber just like that sweet song and warm glass of milk did back in the day. Several studies have found music to be a useful sleep aid. Turn your volume down low and drift off and away to the soothing melodies of Dr. Dog and Eric Clapton alike.

  • Dr. Dog: The Breeze
  • Otis Redding: You Don't Miss Your Water
  • Explosions In The Sky: First Breath After Coma
  • Pretty Lights: Stay
  • Eric Clapton: Wonderful Tonight
  • M83: Wait
  • Squeak E. Clean feat Karen O: Hello Tomorrow
  • Yo La Tengo: Damage
  • Cat Power: Where Is My Love
  • Broken Social Scene: Lover's Spit
  • Sigur Ross: Hoppipolla
  • Christopher O'Reily: Waltz #1
  • Grouper: Heavy Water/I'd Rather Be Sleeping
