Not everyone can keep it together when you are 30,000 feet up in the air, so here is a carefully compiled list of some relaxing and fun songs to keep you calm. Whether you choose to fly during the warmth of summer, or the dead of winter, I don’t think there is anything about an airplane that makes it inviting. Sometimes there are crying babies, bad food, and terrible movies. At other times the flight attendants are friendly and you are with your family, which is comforting. But when you are at a loss of what to do to tolerate your long flight, don’t hesitate to stick to this relaxing playlist of songs to keep you calm!
1. Don’t Know Why by Norah Jones
**On iTunes: **itunes.apple.com
This is definitely one of the best songs to keep you calm. I used to babysit in high school and I loved singing this song to the children I was babysitting to get them to fall asleep. I really couldn’t think of anything more soothing, aside from lullabies. The year Norah Jones’s first album came out she absolutely swept the Grammy’s, winning the majority of major awards, and rightfully so! This jazz, blues, country, and pop musician has the soothing voice of an angel and musical talent that stems from the likes of Ravi Shankar. In case you didn’t know that’s her father! And if you don’t know who Ravi Shankar is, well he is the famed sitar player who toured with the Beatles throughout the '70s, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Norah Jones’s and Ravi Shankar’s talents. Feel free to check out all of Norah Jones’s albums; each is different but I find her first Grammy-winning album to be the most soothing when it comes to songs to keep you calm.
