Last night I was thinking about exactly why I can sleep to some music, but not most. I decided (based on Eluvium and Bohren und der Club of Gore):
1) It has to have some sort of ambience. Eluvium works well because of the ambient synths. Bohren und der Club of Gore works well, in large part, because of the airy production on their drums. If I want to sleep to music, I need to feel like it's surrounding me. if it's just sounds jutting out of silence, it's jarring.
2) It has to be soft. Eluvium has soft synths, the drums for Bohren are a gentle backdrop, and the piano and saxophone overtop are non-intrusive and gentle.
3) If it has a melody, it has to be pretty. Eluvium is usually just shifting synth chords, but when there is piano, the pieces are very pretty. Bohren's piano and saxophone lines, though more apocalyptic in melody, are still pretty.
4) It has to be repetitive. Minimalism is great for sleeping. Eluvium's songs are usually pretty predictable, and run through the same themes repetitively. Bohren, being mostly improvised, has fairly constant drum/vibraphone lines running underneath.
5) I have to be familiar with it. Anything I haven't already heard will steal my attention and keep my from sleeping.
Based on these elements, I decided to try sleeping to the new Earth album (Bees Made Honey in the Lion's Skull, an interesting combination between drone and Americana) and it worked wonderfully. I've also found, in the past, that wall-of-sound style black metal, turned down low, also works well.

Come on, guys. Anything baroque. My mom got me a CD of Pachelbel and other baroque music. Probably the best stuff to listen to for an insomniac.

I would personally suggest something around the genre of ambient music. Have you ever heard of Jon Hopkins? British composer who does mostly ambient stuff. I'd suggest the album Opalescent, if I'm not mistaken. Great stuff for if you're awake, but he creates a really nice, relaxing soundscape. It's good for doing some work occasionally, as well.

Jon Hopkins - Private Universe

No, I have no idea what the video is. Listen to the song, though. S'good.

Lots of good things already mentioned... Sigur Ros, Brian Eno, Enigma...

Some Radiohead albums are good, too, like Kid A or OK Computer. Mogwai's "Mr. Beast" is also good, as is Explosions in the Sky. More to come as I think of them.

Oh yeah, someone mentioned Aphex Twin's Ambient Works - definitely! I think I fell asleep by the second or third track once.

Warning: Although both of these are fantastic post-rock bands, be warned: Expect a lot of extreme loudness and raging guitars in spots. There's some ambient, too, but just be warned.

Of Mogwai, I'd name Radar Maker / Tracy, R U Still In 2 It?, Burn Girm Prom-Queen, Take Me Somewhere Nice, Golden Porsche and Acid Food. But whatever you do, please, for the love of Boognish, do not choose With Portfolio. Please.

@Ptolom

im the opposite... i grew up (and still stay) in a busy part of the city... cars would constantly pass the window is i went to sleep...

now the silence keeps me awake lol.

EDIT: (as for the cassette (or cd or whatever) books... that would provoke me to actually pay attention to what is on... as opposed to just basking in the atmosphere... like trying to fall asleap when your fav TV show or movie is on tv)

A good bit of Death Cab for Cutie's stuff, however overrated and overplayed it may be, is pretty good background music. As far as I've heard, it's mellow, melancholy acoustic rock.

I second Sigur Ros-() and the Postal Service. Concerning Explosions in the Sky, every other song on The Earth is not a Cold Dead Place (tracks 1, 3, and 5) are good sleep music.

Also, Iron & Wine. None of the things off his later CDs, but things like Upwards Over the Mountain and The Trapeze Swinger and Naked As We Came are beautiful songs to fall asleep to. I especially recommend Upwards Over the Mountain.

Also, The Crane Wife 1, 2, & 3 by The Decemberists.

But really, Iron & Wine.

Agreed. Iron & Wine is incredible. Anything from "Our Endless Numbered Days" is immensely relaxing.

Odd, I've found Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon pretty easy to fall asleep to.

Also, any of J.S. Bach's compositions for piano.

WIN.

I actually have my Falling Asleep playlist, sort of. Technically, I originally created it for driving home at 3am, but it turned out to be terrible for that, for the obvious reason. Here tis.

1. Radiohead: The Tourist
2. Coldplay: A Rush of Blood to the Head
3. Pink Floyd: Echoes (Short version, though still over sixteen minutes)
4. Ryan Adams: Wonderwall
5. Sufjan Stevens: John Wayne Gacy, Jr
6. Planet Funk: Piano Piano
7. Underworld: Sola Sistim
8. Groove Armada: Edge Hill
9. Infusion: Invisible
10. Aphex Twin: Xtal
11. Enigma: TNT For the Brain

This one is also great for when you are with a special man or lady and it is romantic.

NB For those interested this is my new, redesigned 3am driving playlist

1. Orbital: Transient
2. The Dissociatives: We're Much Preferred Customers
3. Infusion: Daylight Hours
4. Underworld: Juanita/Kiteless/To Dream of Love
5. Massive Attack: Butterfly Caught
6. The Chemical Brothers: Close Your Eyes
7. Gotye: Hearts a Mess
8. Groove Armada: Remember
9. Ferry Corsten: Holding On
10. Junkie XL: Broken
11. Hybrid: Blackout

That'll just fit on to one CD.

If I really want to fall asleep, I usually put on This Binary Universe by BT, it has it's moments where it picks up, but i'm usually out like a light by then.

This happened to me on an 8 hour plane ride to London. I figured that I'll just mellow out to the first few tracks, skip "Time" and try to sleep through the rest. I succeeded in my plan of mellowing out, but I forgot that "Time" was coming up. I jumped at least 3 feet vertically at the start of it, much to the chagrin of the people on either side of me.

Also, I think I'll sig this too =D

Yeah, happened to me on a flight too. Not as long; only about a three-hour flight, but it still had the same effect. I had just put my Zen on random Pink Floyd play, and didn't even think about Time. One minute, someone was telling me I can't have any pudding, and, the next minute, screaming alarm clocks are going off and it's an hour and a half later.

Lullaby - The Cure

It has a great layered sound to it, the bassline is calming but catchy, there's not too much guitar, and the vocals are whispery. I listened to it last night and couldn't get it out of my head all day.

Yes! It is really surprisingly calming, given how flipping creepy it is. I think I tend to have it on my calm playlists, though I'm sure at least once I've had a dream that made me regret that.

Try mixing a playlist with the Nine Inch Nails album Ghosts I-IV, Pete Namlook, and possibly some Dark Ambient to make for more interesting dreams. Set to shuffle. I made this playlist, and it's called "Dream Fuel". Works perfectly.

Pete Namlook is a bit obscure, but the most amazing Ambient stuff I know of. Biosphere is pretty great, too. He does a lot of stuff with Namlook. Dark Ambient, I would be very careful about what you put in there. Some will give you crazy awesome dreams, others will terrify you and make you really weird the next day. Look for it at this site.

I've seen before that Lullaby is a great background for sex. Does not compute. I mean, I'm not the one who thinks the image of Robert Smith being licked by a hungry spider man and "eaten by a thousand million shivering furry holes" is too arousing. But with all that thing about fetishes and stuff...

- Massive Attack - Dissolved Girl
- U2 - 4th of July
- Karen Overton - Your Loving Arms (Club Mix)

- Deep Dish feat. Stevie Nicks - Dreams
- Massive Attack - Protection
- Niyaz - Dilruba (Junkie XL Mix)
- Incubus - Dig

This is comfortably enough to put me to sleep, and push me into the "good dreams" zone.

I downloaded this and it's awesome. I omitted "Protection" (didn't like it) and added "Lonely Day" by SOAD and "Bloody Sunday" by U2 for no real reason but I love those songs :D
"Tear Drop" by Massive Attack is also a good one.

I need a sleepy mix. I'm gonna lurk this thread more and steal your ideas.
