Radiohead - Pyramid Song
A ponderous track from 2001's Amnesiac that gets deeper and deeper with every passing minute.
Massive Attack - Teardrop
An all time classic from 1998's Mezzaine album, give extra sparkle by the beautiful vocals of Elisabeth Fraser from the Cocteau Twins.
The Doors - Riders On The Storm
Jim Morrison may weave a dark tale, but the chilled out jazz from the rest of the band is strangely calming. And think of the positive ions from that thunderstorm!
Pink Floyd - Shine On You Crazy Diamond
Long, long, blissed-out track from the classic 1975 album Wish You Were Here.
Oasis - I'm Outta Time
One of the less rowdier moments from the Gallagher brothers, from their final album, Dig Out Your Soul.
Stereophonics - Traffic
A pensive, bittersweet music from Kelly Jones, taken from the band's excellent debut, Word Gets Around.
Coldplay - Trouble
Chris Martin's trademark piano riff leads off one of Coldplay's more inspirational and gentle songs.
Jose Gonzalez - Heartbeats
The Swedish guitarist and singer's best known track - a gentle cover of The Knife's electro pop hit.
