Additions for “Relaxing, EASY favorites”?

I have a musical playlist that is 9 hours long. It’s specifically songs that I can relax to and that I enjoy listening to, spanning over 50 years…

And yet, I can use more songs or suggestions to add to the playlist. While every song on this list I like in one way or another, hearing certain songs too often can diminish them or make me want something else. At the same time, there’s got to be more than a few songs I’m outright forgetting from bygone eras of pop music, and I know I’m clueless on more recent songs that are catchy and fit this.

So! Below you will find a list of all 139 songs on the playlist. If you want to react to the list, your comments are welcome. Your suggestions for additions are most certainly welcome.

The song title is to the left of the table, the artist in to the right. There are some instrumentals of a notable rock variety (“Boogie Man”, “Sleepwalk” and “Caravan” among others) but most are stand performance of vocals-plus-instruments.

  1. For what it’s worth, I had Jack Johnson in there (Brushfire Fairytales tracks) but I took it all out; it didn’t appeal to me in a pop sene.
