A Calming Moment

December 10th - A Song That Makes You Fall Asleep

   This song always relaxes me. It helps me clear my head which is a hard thing to do. I always seem to have those stray thoughts that snowball and lead you down a path of tangent thinking when you are trying to fall asleep or meditate. This is one of the few songs that I can just focus on the music clear and head and be at peace. Unfortunately that usually means falling asleep if I listen to it long enough. But at least I have it in reserve as a tool for when I need it. There is a quote I love by Berthold Auerbach (a German novelist). "Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life." I wholeheartedly believe that and for me it is never so true as when its said about this song.

Thanks for stopping by to give my thoughts a read and a listen. I hope you have an awesome day!


  1. Hey!!! I know this song... I believe they used it in the movie The Devil Wears Prada. Love it!!!

  2. They use it a LOT. The first time I heard it was in the original Mortal Kombat movie. Yes, I'm a geek but you know this.
