For those who generally have as much trouble falling asleep as I do, this is the perfect mix to listen to. All the songs are calm, soothing, mellow and tend to lull you to sleep. The soft, soothing voices and music work well to put you in the perfect sleepy mood.. lets just hope you don't fall asleep until the end, because thats the best part!

The perfect song to end a sleepytime mix with.. the song that sings you to sleep and tells you goodnight. The collaboration of Low and Dirty Three for this song turns out so perfectly.
