19 tracks that when I first heard them, they made me LITERALLY stop in my tracks...or maybe not literally, but I was touched enough to google the lyrics or shazam the song...God bless musicians, where would we b without them?
Clinically proven songs to knock you out, fast. Okay, so maybe not "clinically" proven but they work. If you're not asleep by the end of this hour long mix, you may be a robot.

This afternoon my sister and I are driving up to Austin for the weekend. We like to roll the windows down and sing. There may be a few guilty pleasures here and there. This mix starts out mellow and gets more upbeat toward the end. Perfect for arriving at our destination. 60 songs.
This was one of the toughest tasks I have ever had in creating a top. As a big fan of making lists, I thought this would be easy, but it was quite the opposite. Many great songs were left out, I was constrained by the rules of the website to put only two tracks from great bands like Radiohead, Pixies and Sonic Youth, but the final result is a mini-history of nearly 21 years of music. This list is just a product of my own tastes and thoughts. The first song is no. 1 and so on.
The perfect instrumental study mix (minus an awesome medley at the end) for all of your final needs. Be whisked away to the happiest place on earth... even if you are physically still in your dorm room cramming for that test. Who said studying couldn't be magical?

"When I left the control room, everybody was moved, was excited, most of the people were crying. People are more, yeah, they have difficulties to believe that it happened, so, but we are very busy, the control team is busy in checking the situation, stabilising the situation, so they won't have much time to think of the historical moment - they have to work," head of ESA operations Paolo Ferri told journalists after the landing."Signs continue coming, of course the scientific experiments will start a bit later, but the measurements for the instruments which were already active - and they are already active now - are coming," Mr Ferri added.

Unlike Beethoven's Sixth, which leaves little doubt as to their subject with babbling brooks, singing birds and summer storms, the musical images arise in Vaughan Williams indirect. The horror, the demands Walton, was the participation in the First World War for Vaughan Williams. Only in 1938, 16 years after the completion of the work, the composer revealed the great influence that his war experiences had taken in France on his Third Symphony. The declared pacifist had there, voluntarily served with already 42 years as a paramedic. Powerful images »Vaughan Williams' music conjures up images vast landscape," says Norrington during a rehearsal break last June. "But it is the scenery of the First World War, a landscape, have suffered infinitely in the human. The music is not programmatic, but very vivid - and she has four slow movements. At first this may sound boring, but it is incredibly touching. "His imagination helps Norrington going to keep the tension to work out a development in four slow movements. How four seasons, so he told them act on it. Starting with a serene summer, followed by a plaintive trumpet player in the fall, probably blows to his own funeral - incidentally, the only real quote that brought the composer from the war.
