Here we present the list of top 10 best Relaxing songs of all time 2017.
10. “High and Dry” – Radiohead
This is a band that has written a lot of songs that can really help but your mind at ease, but they are included on albums full of tracks that will get your mind and thoughts racing at the same time. So if you are choosing “High and Dry” for your relaxation playlist, as it is something that can do this job quite well, make sure that you are just adding the single track and not the entirety of the album that it is on. Just a little fair warning is all.
9. “Cannonball” – Damien Rice
Indie Folk/ Singer Songwriter Damien Rice has written such a collection of impressive music throughout the years, and the better part of it is inspired and extremely creative. Based primarily on the acoustic and of a typically slower cadence, Rice’s music is something that offers a lot of individual tracks ideal for relaxation, but “Cannonball” is one of the most successful tracks from the performer and thus gives it a slight edge to crack into this top ten list.
8. “Let It Be” – The Beatles
There is nothing quite like just learning to love the world around you and to do your part to keep the peace. The general message of “Let It Be” is about trying to do your part in the world to make it a better and friendlier place. “Let It Be” is a way of saying there is nothing that you can do about everything that goes wrong in the world, and you cannot change everyone that you are around. All you can do is to be the best that you can be and to help out people when you can and be the difference you want to see in the world around you.
7. “Landslide” – Fleetwood Mac
Getting older and facing some hard truths are not always easy to do. Through the track “Landslide”, the singer talks about being afraid of changing because so much of her life has been fixated on one specific thing. Change can be scary, but the cadence and vocal delivery of “Landslide” also make it one of the most relaxing songs to listen to.
6. “Where Are You Going?” – Dave Matthews Band
Dave Matthews and company have always been about good times and writing some of the most intricate acoustic music that this generation has seen. While there are songs that teeter on rock tracks and fast paced tunes a plenty, the band is also known for having some of the most relaxing music to lay back and chill with. “Where Are You Going ?” is a great example of this kind of song, as it focuses a lot on just an acoustic guitar backbone, some bass and light slow paced cadence. This gives the entire track a relaxing feel.
5. “Thank You” – Dido
While the song would later be sampled by rapper Eminem and used in a disturbing rap track that is anything but relaxing, “Thank You” in its original form is an endearing track that can have you really drifting away. If you are someone that can enjoy light female vocalization and some expertly crafted lyrics, “Thank You” can be just the escape that you are looking for after a hard day, which is ironically a large part of the song’s subject matter.
4. “Fire and Rain” – James Taylor
This is a song about loss and hurt at its core, but it is also a song that you can have playing in the background as you close your eyes and just relax. Come to think of it, just about any James Taylor song is a good track to sit back and relax with, so if “Fire and Rain” doesn’t suit your fancy, you can try a few other of his hit tracks and see if his soothing guitar playing and gentle voice don’t just put your mind at ease and let you get some rest after a hard day of working.
3. “Hands” – Jewel
Jewel is a singer songwriter that saw the bulk of her successes through the late 1990’s. While there were certainly hits that she had that were bigger than “Hands”, this particular track is one of the most relaxing tracks of all time. Her voice combined with the gentle strumming and picking of the guitar makes for a truly unique song that will keep you calm and relaxed far into your evening.
2. “Strawberry Swing” – Coldplay
This is another band that you could basically pick and choose the tracks that you wanted to at random and still find a relaxing vibe coming from them all. While in more recent years the band has opted for a more direct Pop music approach, often times being a little far removed from their early acoustic efforts that brought them into their stardom, choosing any of these acoustical offerings from their early albums should give you exactly what you are looking for when you sit down to unwind.
1. “Don’t Know Why” – Norah Jones
Norah Jones is known as one of the coffee house queens. Her music is soothing, its sensual and its smoky. “Don’t Know Why” is one of the artist’s most successful tracks, and that should make finding it for your relaxation playlist even easier.
These are literally the best relaxation songs that every person should be listening to when they are trying to let go of the day’s stresses. While there are a few different unique styles that have found a home on this list, each of these tracks is all but guaranteed to let you slip away from your trouble and to put your wandering mind to rest for a little while.
