I really don't think I'm the only one that does this, because at least three of my sisters either do or have done the same thing. Does anybody else out there like to listen to music while they fall asleep, or do you prefer silence? If you do listen to music, what kind of music is it? I used to think that I usually couldn't fall asleep to music, but I guess it depends on the style. I can't sleep to quiet, soothing, classical or piano music. I also can't sleep when the music is too high energy and has lyrics that I understand. I can, however, fall asleep to the soundtrack of Rio. The mood of the songs is in between high energy and soothing, and though there are lyrics, most of them are in Portuguese, so I don't have the problem of going along with the lyrics in my head and making my brain more active when I'm trying to wind down.
