There are songs that make you fall asleep because they’re boring like that. And then there are those that make you drift off to sweet dreams because they sound so soothing, their melodies cradle your ear and lull you to sleep.
One of these songs is Corinne Bailey Rae‘s Till It Happens To You.
I guess you could call Corinne Bailey Rae’s songs as my lullabies. When her first eponymous album came out, I remember listening to it to help me fall asleep during bouts of insomnia. This is one of my favorite “sleep” songs. Maybe because these lines always sound so dreamy to me:
It used to feel like heaven
Used to feel like May
I used to hear those violins playing heart strings like a symphony
Now they’ve gone away
