those are some good song picks I have to say. Stairway to heaven is it's own entity. Check out misty moutain hop by zeppelin, I like that one a lot. Pink floyd and the beatles are my lucid music though. sometimes hendrix too. put on headphones and let it play when you fall asleep, you might notice things in your dreams that have a lot to do with the songs on the cd you put on. I have before. I dreamed the wind cries mary by hendrix while I had that one song on repeat all night. try it, it's fun to look for things, good RC to look for also.

Kid A and Amnesiac are both excellent lucid dreaming soundtracks to fall asleep to.

Who was it that was saying about fight club and the pixies? Radiohead were massively influenced by the Pixies, according to Thom, and I have to say, Fight Club is my favourite film of all time. "Where is my mind" fits in so well at the end.

Fight Club was an Awesome movie, if a bit wierd.

All of you have a lot of very good suggestions for music. I've just downloaded stuff from most all of you.

I would definately have to suggest Enya and Moby, especially Moby's CD 18. Really good stuff.

the waking life soundtrack is excellent for dream recall. and it makes me think of lucid dreams every time i listen to it (it's really mesmerizing).

i didn't have any lucid dreams in the past few months so i don't know if it works as well with ld's. (i'm getting closer though, i've been working at it again).

If something is very atmospheric to my ears, it is good for sleeping. Even EXTREMELY HEAVY CRUSHING MUSIC like Cephalic Carnage has shown up in my dreams. Mostly because their weird death-grind-jazz-core is strung together seamlessly and utilizes many experimental elements. Their latest album is entitled "Lucid Interval" but I don't find it as atmospheric as their prior release "Exploiting Dysfunction".

Other music perfect for me to sleep to:

Anything by Fantomas
Any Pink Floyd (especially the first two albums)
Lost Highway Soundtrack
Any Nine Inch Nails
Older Rush Albums
Porcupine Tree


"Larger than Time, Heavier than Night" by Enslaved
Opeth's "Damnation" album (this is a metal band, but this album is entirely mellow.)

Current LD goal(s): 1 per week

Radiohead is great for sleeping too, especially Kid A and Amnesiac.
If you like ambient, I would really recommend the album "Venice" from the one-man project Fennesz. I have found it very relaxing, and when you start to drift away, you get a lot of pictues in the head from the sound landscapes in the music.

I just had a thought. Watch the linkin Park Breaking the Habit video. Its a guy reverse plummenting up a building. Now I think if you watch the vid a couple of times and then play the song while you sleep, that would be an easy situation to turn into flight.

I love Radiohead, I heard someone once describe Kid A as a clouded mind trying to recall a UFO obduction.

I seem to have the best dream recall when listening to New Age music, or anything atmospheric. David Arkenstone in particular helps a lot, although I prefer his energetic albums (Spirit of Olympia, Celtic Book of Days) over his dreamier albums (Citizen of Time, Dream Palace).

Also, symphonic/industrial type stuff really helps. Aetherius' The Day The Earth Went Cold, Sleep Away Life, My Rent Soul, and Comforted By Indifference help me a lot with dream recall (although the songs are very depressing).

I'm suprised no one has mentioned Radiohead's OK Computer. Also:
Built to Spill : Perfect From Now On
Interpol: Antics
Wilco: Yankee Hotel Foxtrot
Flaming Lips: Clouds Taste Metallic (my personal favorite)

I played this when I went to bed last night. Although I didn't have a LD, I did have an EXTREMELY long dream. I had a dream that felt like it had lasted an entire day! That has never happened to me before.
