Not recommended to set as your alarm clock tune. The theme of this Friday is ambient / atmospheric. I listen to these songs when I want to listen to music and actually do work or while taking a nap. They're also handy when you need some neutral background music that probably no one will know but that is fairly pleasing for most chill occasions when you don't want much going on, just something other than silence. Here's a playlist with all the songs: the playlist with all the songs.
1. Norrland - Gidge
The musical equivalent of an elevating hike through Norweigan Woods. Scenic stops are included.
2. I Dreamed of Choirs Slow and Steady, the Song Was Ours, Its Woe Was Heavy - Aural Method
This is the Lord of the Rings of songs, minus the fighting parts. It starts out pretty chill, Frodo and Sam are in the Shire, having a good time with the other hobbitses. Then the ring stuff happens and they have to go to Mordor and it starts getting intense and things start escalating and escalating and there's tension in every look and movement. And then at the very end everything is chill again.
3. In a Forest With Leaves in Your Hair - Sad Souls
Much shorter than the above two songs. It's almost solely composed of one catchy, repetitive loop which nicely captures the song title.
4. Albatross - Fleetwood Mac
Different from the others on this list, with the main melody played on guitar instead of electronically generated. The feeling I get from it is -slowly floating along-.
5. Her Joy Was Complete - Sleeping At Last
A beautiful series of escalations and declines.
