I thought we could start a thread with recommendations for labor/ birth music. I know I can definitely use some more on my playlist! I'm really into kind of trippy, jam band type music that I get sucked into. For some reason, it puts me in a state where I am only thinking of the music... my mind goes blank. This is sort of embarrassing, but my number one for this right now is Rusted Root. This song is perfect: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X_7BuxuMBIw
Other than that, I've got:
- an album called "Sufi Splendor: Music for Whirling Meditation" which is amazing- lots of chanting
- some classical Indian music for meditation by Ustad Imrat Khan
- part of the soundtrack for the movie Dil Se
- Delerium's "Karma"
- Joanna Newsom's "Ys"
- some Native American flute music
Personally, I can't do typical new-age meditation type music because it doesn't suck me in enough. I need to be completely absorbed by the music.
So what will everyone else be listening too?
