Relaxing to Music

This week Jake’s prompt includes the word “relax”. The first thing that popped into my head was a song I used to hear on the radio often: Relax by Frankie Goes To Hollywood.

The song is full of energy and is the antithesis of what relaxing music should be. Mika’s song Relax, Take It Easy is a little slower – but still encourages your feet to do a little tap dance.

To truly relax, I lie on my bed (or sofa) and imagine myself lying on the beach of a gently rolling sea. While doing so, I listen to music that calms me and does not increase my heartbeat. For me, the best music to do this with is Classical music. My favourite compositions are those by Beethoven:

What I love most about music is that you can find something to suit your mood and your needs – whether you want to relax, or create a little energy boost.

What music do you listen to in order to relax?

    This morning Eunice (Living and Lovin) shared a lovely toe tapping piece of music to celebrate the 1st day of Spring http://nutsfortreasure.wordpress.com/2014/03/20/happy/ and yesterday Jo Bryant shared 2 superb young Croatian cellists whose name escapes me but they were amazing. Must be my week for music :)

    3 fantastic choices, Colline. For me, I find that light jazz is the perfect tranquilizer. It neither makes me want to move about nor puts me to sleep but I can listen to it for hours.
