I find really melancholy songs super soothing. Who would have guessed? I listen to this before bed or en route to uni. Feel free to add anything that also makes you calm(er).
  1. Youth - Daughter
    And if you're still breathing, you're the lucky ones. 'cause most of us are heaving through corrupted lungs. (
  2. Dream 3 (in the midst of my life) - Max Richter
    The whole Sleep score is the most incredible thing I've ever heard. (
  3. About Today - The National
    How close am I to losing you? (
  4. Medicine - Daughter
    You could still be what you want to, what you said you were when you met me. (
  5. Tornado - Jónsi
  6. For The Widows In Paradise, For The Fatherless In Ypsilanti – Sufjan Stevens
    If there's any other way, I'll do anything for you. (

    I want to wake up in a city that doesn't sleep. (
  8. Keep Breathing - Ingrid Michaelson
    All we can do is keep breathing. (

    Another gorgeous instrumental piece. (
  10. No Surprises - Regina Spektor (Radiohead)
    A heart that's full up like a landfill. (
  11. Ninna Nanna Per Adulteri - Ennio Morricone
    Almost like a lullaby. (

    This is a place where I don't feel lost. (

    The most hopeful, uplifting melancholic song I know (and rely on!)

  15. So I Could Find My Way- Enya
    I would suggest any Enya song but I really like this one because to me it's very calming and makes me feel like everything will be okay in the end.
