Calming Music Tracks to Listen to when You Need Some Peace ... ...

“Music hath charms to soothe a savage breast, to soften rocks, or bend a knotted oak.” When William Congreve wrote those words, even back in the 17th century they knew the healing powers of music. The music choices then were far more limited than we have today and we’re lucky to have so many genres to listen to. Not all are suitable for playing when you want to feel calm, so unsurprisingly you won’t find any rap on this list.
