After several hours work, sometimes a math book to concentrate, sometimes trivial admin stuff, I feel my brain disturbed, seems a voice or many voices is whirling inside.

Could you pls recommend some music to relax? Pls recommend only music, not songs with lyrics. Maybe some classical music or electronic music? But pls don't be limited to these two.

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise.

  • Are you asking for music to listen to while doing something else or to listen to on break? – Jacob Swanson Aug 29 '15 at 17:23
  • Welcome to the site athos. Unfortunately, what is determined "relaxing" is in the ears of the beholder so as of now I'm closing this question as primarily option based. If you can supply more objective criteria we can reopen this question. – Dom Aug 29 '15 at 17:52
  • @JacobSwanson something to have a 10-15 mins break so that my mind get all the noise/voices inside wiped out and refreshed! – athos Aug 29 '15 at 23:46
  • @athos I would recommend either 30's-40's jazz or classical. It really depends on your tastes though. You can look at Spotify's playlists by genre and pick one you like. – Jacob Swanson Aug 30 '15 at 0:27
  • @JacobSwanson thank you, let me search internet... – athos Aug 31 '15 at 9:38

This question is a bit opinion based, but here are a few I would recommend:

Yo Yo Ma & Bobby McFerrin, "Air on a G String"

Yo Yo Ma - "Soledad"

Pachelbel's Canon in D

Palestrina - Sicut Cervus (technically, this does have lyrics, but they're in Latin)

Turtle Island String Quartet - Because

Apocalyptica - "Nothing Else Matters"

Faure - Pavane

Pavane - Jazz version (Regina Carter)


If you into electronic then i can suggest to check out CHVRCHES new single called "Leave a trace" they have great beat and also awesome lyric! For classical one, if you know Yiruma--he had a great album that you can listen, I suggest "First Love [Repacked]". It's his popular album. But I personally like his latest album called "Blind Film". Hope it helps :)

  • Thanks. I don't want lyrics as subconsciously my mind will try to understand it. but I'll try Yiruma, thank you! – athos Aug 29 '15 at 9:41
