A mix I created when having trouble sleeping before my french exams, hence the french title. Best listened to in the dark, after midnight when tired and weary. Also intended to stimulate dreams.

Radiohead HAD to be in this mix. I think they'll make quite a good starter. What I like about listening to music on headphones is that all the emotion and hysteria and whatnot is all in your head and the rest of the room is dark, silent and still. It's a nice but weird combination.

agaetis byrjun could put me to sleep on a rollercoaster. i saw them live this past summer, and i was dozing off at the show. kind of ironic.
and how can delinquent hate hate hate radiohead? i can understand not liking them, but i think the hate hate hate is a response to their popularity. it's not like they hurt anybody, except with those glamour shots they used to pose for early on.
