Brilliant. In fact, just the the other day I read a review for REM's Accelerate, and it compared Hollow Man to a Gin Blossoms style tune.

That's actually the funny part right there.

I generally can't fall asleep to music except on airplanes. Music is too stimulating for me. I need to either actively listen to it, or if I hate it, remove it from my presence.

Or put me in an audience at the symphony and I'm out in like 7 minutes. That's what my parents listened to when I was in the womb and I cannot keep my eyes open when I hear it.

I've got the same problem.

A good percentage of my entire collection (so much that I couldn't even begin to come up with a list of just a few good song examples of relaxing songs for UF's thread) is extremely "dreamy", "chill", "relaxing" type music, and it's rare that I can even get sleepy listening to any of it.

It's not like hearing the Coldplay songs makes one want to die or disappear or destroy the radio.

I often use your posts to help me fall asleep. I sleep well when I feel like I'm the smartest guy around.

I'm the same. I can half-listen to music while doing something else, and I can listen to it for relaxation, but I can't go to sleep with music in the background.

If you were smarter maybe you'd know.

Cruelest insult I've ever seen on these forums. Consider yourself reported.

Damien Rice is a great one to go asleep to. And I mean that in the kindest of ways! He's one of my favourite artists.
Same with After the Goldrush.
