Top 10 Songs to Listen to While Going to Sleep
So for this week's Wednesday Question we asked you guys to name best tunes to fall asleep to. We had a great time rounding up your ideas, here's the list you came up with, neatly summed up in another traditional UG Top 10.

10. Simon & Garfunkel - Sound of Silence

Proving that UG community knows its classics, Simon & Garfunkel get to kick off the list with "Sound of Silence."

9. Devin Townsend - Ghost (Full Album)

Hevy Devy might have gone way off the metal course with "Ghost," but he still managed to hit the bullseye. An amazing piece of relaxation music, the record earned a spot on the list as a whole.

8. Opeth - Hours of Wealth

Being a diverse band they are, Opeth have released a selection of songs appropriate for a vast array of moods, including the sleepy one. "Hours of Wealth" earns them a No. 8 spot.

7. Pink Floyd - The Dark Side of the Moon

The best-selling rock record of all time, Pink Floyd's "The Dark Side of the Moon" is a stellar piece of work, arguably marking the greatest heights rock music has reached.

6. Alice in Chains - Nutshell (Unplugged)

A deeply emotional song about loneliness, despair and death, listening to Alice in Chains' "Nutshell" before falling asleep might result in a nightmare or two, but the tune's overall vibe still managed to earn it a spot on the list.

5. Incubus - Aqueous Transmission

Featuring that eastern vibe, Incubus' "Aqueous Transmission" will get you floating "further down the river" until reaching the final destination - the land of dreams.

4. Radiohead - Weird Fishes/Arpeggi

The groove on this one might seem a bit too upbeat for sleeping at first, but the song still manages to set up a perfect dreamy vibe.

3. Pink Floyd - Shine on You Crazy Diamond

Pink Floyd are without a hint of doubt the ultimate masters of ambient, resulting in their second appearance on the list, this time around with "Shine on You Crazy Diamond," a song dedicated to late Syd Barrett in his time of mental struggle.

2. Led Zeppelin - The Rain Song

Soft, mellow and emotional - Led Zeppelin's "The Rain Song" has all the qualities required for this week's list, resulting in a No. 2 spot.

1. Black Sabbath - Planet Caravan

They might be masters of metal, but Black Sabbath still managed to top the list with "Planet Caravan," a mellow, dreamy gem about "floating through the universe with one's lover."
