    I don't fall asleep to music. But almost every morning when I wake up, there is a song playing in my head - which sometimes sticks with me for hours, even at work.

    For two years, I used to fall asleep to The Strokes - Is This It. It's a bit energetic, but there's a great late-night vibe that works well to drift off to if you have it at low volumes.

    Popol Vuh - Hosianna Mantra has been doing the trick for me over the past few months.

    Mazzy Star - So Tonight That I Might See is a good one for me.

    That's a great one. It's weird when the upbeat songs put you to sleep. It was the same for me with Washed Out - New Theory.

    I've been hung up on Wild Beasts for the last year and made a mix of songs included in their Coachella set that's been reliable:

    "Bed of Nails"
    "We Still Got the Taste Dancing On Our Tongues"
    "The Fun Powder Plot"
    "This Is Our Lot"
    "Loop the Loop"
    "Reach a Bit Further"
    "All the King's Men"
    "Hooting & Howling"
    "End Come Too Soon"

    Fever Ray's eponymous debut is also much used, particularly "Concrete Walls," "Now's the Only Time I Know," "I'm Not Done," and "Keep the Streets Empty for Me."

    This must be an old guy thing. I'm exactly the same way. Sometimes I'll know why I have the song in my head, other times it seems to come out of nowhere.

    On the rare occasions I do want to listen to music to help me fall asleep it will be one of Eno's ambient albums.

    I don't think it's an old guy thing, because I wake up to a song in my head all the time- mostly out of nowhere, totally unassociated to anything I've listened to lately. An old boyfriend used to call me the waking jukebox. I think it has to do with dreams, and if you're lucky like me, your dreams have soundtracks.

    I do however fall asleep to music, and I am switching up my playlist tonight because it's pretty dated. Thought I'd give the old board a try for suggestions and boom.. a thread. But a short one.
    Here's what I am taking out of rotation. The wake up list is 10 times as long (includes lots of Blur, Broken Social Scene Fugazi Instrumental and Groove Armada... equally dated!)... because I usually snooze for an hour!

    El Perro Del Mar- Change of Heart
    Bjork- Frosti, and All Neon Like
    Kings of Convenience- Cayman Islands
    Suzanne Vega- Caramel
    Ween- Baby Bitch
    Stereolab- Brakhage
    GusGus- Polyesterday
    PJ Harvey- Horses in My Dreams
    Elliot Smith- A Fond Farewell
    Gustavo Cerati (of Soda Stereo)- Lisa, A Merced
    Kruder & Dorfmeister- Trans Fatty Acid
    Zero 7/Lambchop- Up with People
    Lou Reed-Perfect Day
    The Notwist- Pilot
    Soul Coughing- Soft Serve, Janine
    Outkast- Take Off Your Cool
    Pinback- Tres
    Menahan Street Band- lots of it.

    Anyway, I'm looking to hear any newer suggestions, and adding Eno to start!
