These two are different, they’re NOT relaxing! (To me)


I assembled a play-list on iTunes that might be useful during a massage. Relaxing. Not exactly the new-age-y blur that seems to be favored, but trying to find that calming, smooth, let it all go vibe. Curiously (the rest the list is below) these songs don’t make the cut, because they’re NOT relaxing, calming, smooth, let it all go, in the middle of a bunch that are.

How Deep Is The Ocean 4:46 Diana Krall Love Scenes 80 8 6/11/10 2:32 PM 1997 Jazz
When I Fall In Love 4:54 Bill Evans Trio Portrait In Jazz 60 5 3/24/10 10:42 AM 1959 Jazz

And I’m still deciding about:
Anouman 5:07 David Grisman Mondo Mando 60 3 3/24/10 9:39 AM 1982 Country

I think the issue is thay there’s some emotional content that’s not simply playing music for the joy of it and that comes through, waking one up!

Curious, compared to the ones that work just fine.
