Talk Talk's Laughing Stock, I've heard the buzz and would like to understand it, but literally both times I've tried listening to it (admittedly late into the night) I have actually fallen asleep during it.
I shall have to listen after some Monster Energy some time.

Also, pretty much anything with strings, piano, or a choir can aid the needing to sleep process. And, I don't know why, but "More Than a Woman" by The BeeGees has found its way onto sleeping playlists.
Amanda Palmer - Blake Says
The Hush Sound - Lighthouse
The Mountain Goats - Oceanographer's Choice
Mazzy Star - Fade Into You
Muse - Sing For Absolution
Radiohead - Karma Police
Starsailor - Way To Fall
Phish - Horn
The Grateful Dead - Ripple
The Dresden Dolls - Good Day
Adele - Skyfall
Rilo Kiley - Under the Blacklight
CocoRosie - Lemonade
And, I'll use CocoRosie's "Lemonade" as the video:
My friend said of this song: "The one who sings the verses sounds kind of like Ellie Goulding if she were possessed by a demon, and the one on the choruses sounds like a ghost."

I used to play Buckethead's "Colma" to fall asleep. At some point, I realized that I was falling asleep to 'Ghost' every single time. After I realized that I stopped being able to fall asleep to it.
I've also fallen asleep listening to Slowdive and Ametsub.

For a while I used to listen to certain music to help me get to sleep, but in the past year or so I've stopped doing that. Sleepy time has become silent time for me. I think it's mainly because I'm usually listening to music anyway before I go to bed and I just want to rest my ears and sleep.
However there are some albums that I really want to try falling asleep to, namely Ambient 1: Music For Airports by Brian Eno, Laughing Stock and The Spirit of Eden by Talk Talk and A I A by Grouper. Albums with an ambient, other-worldly quality. If I'm in the right mood I shall experiment with those albums.

I used to listen to music while I was going to sleep all the time but that kind of went out the window once I started sharing a bed with someone who didn't share my taste in music. Now it's a pretty rare experience for me, but I have to say the other night I listened to Untrue by Burial and it was such good sleeping music that it really made me miss doing that.
