Lately I've been feeling stressed and at times quite worried, I'm making a playlist of relaxing/chill songs, but just wondering if anyone here has any song suggestions.

Here's a few song examples used in my playlist
Moby -Porcelain (My favourite) , Natural Blues
Radiohead - Codex , Nude
Massive Attack - Teardrop
^ Songs that sound somewhat similar to the above songs would be very useful

Thanks

I don't know if I'm helpful, but I'd suggest 'Safe From Harm' by Massive Attack and 'Brooklyn' by Woodkid.

It's basically most of the James Bond theme songs covered in a jazzy, "lounge" style. Great stuff.

There's also ..

James Yorkston - Woozy With Cider
Sara Bareilles - Basket Case
Jenn Bostik - Jealous Of The Angels
Blank and Jones - I Love You(Late Night Mix)
Richard Hawley - Coles Corner

Lisa Gerrard - Now We Are Free

Enya - Caribbean Blue

Celtic Woman - May It Be

Hayley Westenra - Scarborough Fair

Gregorian - Wonderwall

probably an unusual choice, but i really enjoy finding "long songs" - and one of the best is

Masterpiece - The Temptations - just under 14 mins

Sexual Eruption by Snoop Dogg I find very relaxing. The beat to it is gorgeous.

If you don't have it already, you should get hold of 'The Chillout Mix' compilation from 1999. It was released by Virgin records and you can get a second hand copy for very little. Or, you could have a look through the tracklist, pick out the ones you like and do the rest... There is an excellent 'original album version' of Moloko's 'Sing it Back' on there.

Anyway, some I'd recommend:

Oversoul ft.Gram'ma Funk - Universal Unfolding (sometimes credited to Ibizarre - it was featured on one of his 'Ambient Collection' albums, which are worth checking out too). I currently have this as my ringtone from 0:55/0:56 into the track. You'll recognise Gram'ma Funk from 'I See You Baby,' the Groove Armada track.

Air - All I Need (as suggested by mazzy50) - it is a beautiful song.

The Avalanches - Since I Left You

Paul Weller - Above the Clouds

Praise - Only You

Gomez - Tijuana Lady

Dubstar - Stars

Finley Quaye - Even After All

Lenny Kravitz - I Belong To You

George Michael - The Strangest Thing (original album version)


See how you get on with those!
