As I mentioned yesterday, I’m still dealing with insomnia. Luckily, I’m not alone and there is plenty of music with which to commiserate or share the joys of sleeping.
The Beatles are the ultimate lullaby-song singers here. I was already familiar with plenty of Beatles sleep songs, not to mention the insomniac relatable line from “I’m So Tired“: You know I can’t sleep, I can’t stop my brain.
Then there is the soothing “Sleepwalking” by Johnny and Santo. No words, but it does feel relaxing, like sleep. This is the state that is desired, the peaceful sleep, but until then…
You have to get through the pains of waiting for the sleep to come, the manic heart-thumping, the tossing and turning. What better song than Metallica’s “Enter Sandman” to display the fear that one just might not be able to fall asleep?
