Default Suggestions for enjoyable light music

Hey, I'm looking for enjoyable light music. I know everyone has different definitions of what's enjoyable, so please feel free to use your own.

As for 'light' - I'm sort of looking for music for music that I could feasibly sleep beside at low volumes if I was excessively tired. This should not be confused with music that will put you to sleep - please keep the first definition in mind.

Hopefully not just songs, but entire albums. Or even artist suggestions are fine.

Two groups come to mind: Dire Straits with Love Over Gold, and Sade's Best Of.

Anything by Les Baxter.

For something more modern I'd suggest Thievery Corporation.

John Rutter. (try the very best of John Rutter)

John Taverner. (Album, song for Athene)

Bach, Goldberg Variations (Andras Schiff on Penguin Classics. No other interpretation comes close imo)

This could become a long list, but a couple of albums offhand... The twofer reissue of Spirit's first and third albums; Great War of Words by Brian Kennedy.

I find myself putting this on before bed all the time, I think it gives me euphoric dreams.

Pat Metheny "What's It all About" album

He has lots of other material good for this sort of thing.

You can find it on Spotify
