30 Days of Music – Day 10 – A Song That Makes You Fall Asleep

Aaron Copland’s Appalachian Spring

I used to listen to it when I was in college to help me sleep at night. I’d put the record on the turntable and try to fall asleep before the album ended. Sometimes I’d have to play it more than once so that I’d relax enough to fall asleep.

I’ve had the privilege of playing the piece on my bass in the college-community orchestra. It is truly one of my favorite pieces.
