I could probably think of a load of others, but these are the ones off the top of my head.
I recommend avoidance if you don't want to risk getting Portal 2 spoiled.
Very soothing and relaxing and I can just listen to it to day's end.
My answer is "Summertime" by Miles Davis with Gil Evens from his 1958 album Porgy and Bess. It's so smooth and mellow; the epitome of cool.
There are a few other jazz songs that I could mention as well such as:
- "Just Friends" by Charlie Parker and Strings
- "I Can't Get Started" by Dizzy Gillespie
- "Moonglow" by The Benny Goodman Quartet
- "Twisted Blues" by Wes Montgomery
- "'Round Midnight" by Thelonious Monk
Mine is probably the following song, from Devin Townsend's Ki album. The quality is a bit lost being on Youtube, but you get the idea.
And considering this comes from the man behind Strapping Young Lad just shows how diverse he is. My favourite musician by quite a long way.
@Bigrhyno: that relaxes you? really? that song (original more so) is mad depressing.
The song is very depressing, and I find it to be a cathartic experience. Afterwards I feel more relaxed. I also have to disagree about the original. I'd listen to Nine Inch Nails over Johnny Cash any day of the week, but Cash's version feels much more emotional to me.
@Toms115 said:@Bigrhyno: fair enough. the cash version is pretty great (must have been a great honour for trent, too), i just think the original is the ultimate version. also the most depressing rofl.
You can't go wrong with either version.
Not sure if this has been posted but pretty much all of mojave 3 songs are relaxing.
