First of all, thank you for visiting my blog! These are the first words I've uttered on this blog so far, but I hope you've liked the informational stuff, albeit no actual words from me.

Anyways, I've added a playlist to the blog. Keep open a new tab with the main page, and play the playlist in that. Otherwise you'll have to restart it every time you click around on here!
Let me just go through the current playlist:
Loud Pipes by Ratatat
One of the most famous songs by Ratatat, and also one of the greatest. I always enjoy listening to this smooth song. You should check out other stuff by Ratatat on youtube, or have a look at a playlist I love listening to myself over at stereomood
Chambermaid Swing by Parov Stelar
Parov Stelar does instrumental music much like Ratatat, but he often has a smooth jazz feel to it with his saxophone hooks. This is my favorite song by him.
Natural Blues by Moby
Great relaxed piece by Moby. Moby has my respect, because he makes music for music, and he does it damn well.
"I learned in the last few years that it's really unhappy and really unsustainable to try and base your well being on something as arbitrary as record sale and critical acclaim and the interests of the public. All of those things are so fickle. So my approach now to music is I want to make records that I love, and I hope that other people love them, then that's OK." - Moby
Ghostwriter by RJD2 
RJD2 does great instrumental hip hop (you might be catching on to a theme of instrumental), and this has to be my favorite song of his.
Empire Ants by Gorillaz
Even though I considered Gorillaz' newest album (Plastic Beach) pretty weak as compared to their earlier work, this one song is really good. Especially the part from 2:45 in the song.
Nothing to worry about by Peter, Bjorn and John
The real reason this caught my attention wasn't actually the song to begin with, but the video (You can see who's the alpha male by the size of his mane). Yes, that's right. It's greasers in Japan. However, the more I watched the video, the more I liked the song. Also, yes, Peter, Bjorn and John are the guys who did that hipster song with the whistling.
Baker Street by Gerry Raferty
A song with the most iconic saxophone solo in history. You can't not like this song.
Eple by Röyksopp
Relaxed and smooth, just the way I like it.
Breathe by Telepopmusik
The most relaxing song on the list. Close your eyes and drift.
Massage Situation by Flying Lotus
More jazzy chillaxed instrumentals. God damn, I have such great taste in music.
Sunshine by Atmosphere
A song with lyrics? That's right. A rap song at that (No, it's not about getting money and bottomheavy ladies).
So Easy by Röyksopp
Röyksopp makes a second appearance on the list. More amazingly relaxing music (With a name like So Easy, it can only be good).
Reality Check by Binary Star
A really old school style hip hop group, and this is probably my favorite rap by them.
