Songs To Numb Your Mind With (PLAYLIST)

Because it is so good to be half-conscious and half-confused on a Sunday evening. Here’s my list of extraordinarily brain-stoning music pieces - sort of.

(unfortunately embedded video is only available to first five songs. This nevertheless means the rest are inferior to my view. Youtube links are still available to click on the title.)

Pink Floyd - Comfortably Numb

No questions, no surprises.

Hyukoh - Mer

Nobody cares what in the world Oh Hyuk is singing because it’s sounds just sooo good.

Jeff Buckley - Opened Once

Not to mention that his voice is always silky and captivating.

The Black Skirts - Everything

This almost makes you wish you were in love.

Copeland - Kite

Don’t we all wish we were a child?

Porcupine Tree - Lazarus

Simply haunting.

Beck - Everybody’s Gotta Learn Sometime

Just the right consistency to follow you wandering aimlessly in town

Between the Buried and Me - Mirrors

There’s a reason why I ship them for 10 years. Their jazzy pieces are always effective. And this is only the beginning.

Copeland - Hold Nothing Back

Yes, I already mentioned the band. However I can’t just simply pass this on.

Steven Wilson - Deform to Form a Star

8 minutes, and not a single second to waste.

Donny Hathaway - Sack Full of Dreams

Not his original song, but I cannot imagine any version better than this.

Maxwell - This Woman’s Work

Get prepared.

Damien Rice - Amie

Does it come from an ethereal otherly world?

Between the Buried and Me - Laser Speed

Mentioned them twice because they deserve it.

Kate Bush - The Man With The Child In His Eyes

The original soundtrack of pitch-dark bedroom filled with nostalgia.

Radiohead - No Surprises

Because I cannot finish the list without mentioning any song from Radiohead.
