Thank you all for sharing your cunning linguists with me. Check out the tasty podcast here.

Next week theme is inspired by a post on the Pulp and Circumstance blog where Jenna described a study to find the best songs to fall asleep to. Well I can think we can do better than a lousy science experiment and make our own list. Here are my Top Five Songs to Fall Asleep, what are yours?

5. Bon Iver, The Wolves

4. Feist, The Park

3. The Frames, Plateau

2. Sparklehorse, It’s a Wonderful Life

1. Arvo Part, Spiegel in Spiegel

  1. – It had to be you = Lisa Edahl
    – My funny valentine = Chet Baker
    – Transatlantic = Quantic
    – Rose rouge – St.Germain
    – Ederlezi = Goran Bregovic
    – Lullaby = Goran Bregovic
    – Lullaby = The cure

    The last two are very similar to each other. Bregovic was perhaps inspired as it was for 99% of his song from The Cure but both are excellent.
