I’m still reeling from the diagnosis I received on Thursday. I’m feeling less overwhelmed by it, but even “less overwhelmed” is still pretty damn overwhelmed.
So, This week, I’m going to share some nice, relaxing music with you all. No lyrics to sing along to, this time.
The Star Wars soundtracks
Obviously, I am a big freaking nerd, so of course the first music I’m throwing up here is from Star Wars [The Force Awakens (2015)]. Not all of the songs on the various Star Wars soundtracks are relaxing or soothing, but slower, more morose pieces (like “The Starkiller” featured above) really calm me down. Honestly, even just listening to it while I wrote about it just now, in those two minutes, eased some of my edge.
Besides, John Williams is a baller composer. I’d probably listen to him bang on garbage cans for twenty minutes. Brilliant!
Various Classical Pieces
When I worked at my old office job, I would sometimes put my headphones in while doing data entry or other computer work and listen to a six-hour compilation of Beethoven’s work. I couldn’t find that video after I left (I just had it bookmarked on my work computer), so now this three hour assortment is my go-to.
Fun Fact: People get really weird when you have a pink mohawk and listen to classical music on a regular basis. Like, really? Bitch, just let me live.
Tell me, friends, have you ever listened to ten straight hours of thunderstorms? Because if you can do so and not be lulled to sleep like it’s a mother’s lullaby, you are a far stronger individual than I.
Hopefully some of you find these as relaxing as I do. I know “nature sounds” isn’t exactly music, but it’s audio and I make the rules here, so… *shrugs*
I love you all.
