This is definitely no knock on today’s artist but this song does make me a little relaxed, but in a good way.
I discovered this song when I had XM Radio and would often listen to their XM Chill channel, which specialized in electronica. I never in my life thought I’d listen to that genre but I found myself enjoying it quite a bit and discovered a ton of amazing tunes while listening.
This song, while making me calm, had a better effect on Anthony when he was a tot. We would play it and drive around the neighborhood on those nights when he just refused to go to sleep but had to. Babies need their sleep, ya know.

Honorable Mention: Tony Bennett – “Fly Me to the Moon”
This one puts me to sleep – literally. I have this on a compilation CD and I have to skip it each time because man, it is so slow. I’d rather gouge my ears out than have to sit through this version because it’s so damn slow.
