    Do You Listen to Music When You Fall Asleep?

    I saw this poll on another website and thought I would bring it here. Do you listen to music when you fall asleep? If so, what kind? Does it stay on the whole time your asleep or only for a little while?

    Nope, but my wife insists on leaving the TV turned down low and on the food network.

    It usually gets turned off about 3 am.

    Most of the time I set the timer on the tv and listen to that. Once in a while I'll listen to jazz or classical music, or I use my sound machine and listen to ocean waves.

    I cant stand having the TV on when I sleep. The flicker and light changes make me not able to fall asleep. I usually put on a CD and am usually asleep before its over.

    Hot damn. Thank God I am not alone. My wife insists on leaving the %$^$#@!!!!ing tv on while I try and go to sleep. When we, finally, move upstairs the tv is out!
    I NEED QUIET! The hearing protection I use on the range works pretty good.
    If I hear music when trying to sleep I have to sing along. And the only person who likes my singing is me. The Crown Vic steering wheel is just a victim.

    I leave the tv on w/ timer set for about 20 minutes. I can not leave it on long as it bothers me. If the wife turns it on in the middle of the night I want to break it.

    I once fell asleep on a machine gun range, but now I can't fall asleep at all with any noise.

    They are cool. I have one of those too. You can get them at Wal-mart for like 20 bucks. Has like 6 different sounds and a timer. Sharper Image has one thats a little nicer but a lot more expensive.

    MIB is right. I got mine at Target, they're not very expensive. Of course, if you accidentally have the volume set wayyy too loud, the ocean waves kind of sound like a crowd screaming and it will scare you awake. At least, that's what I've heard.

    I certainly never made that mistake twice.

    It's hard for me to fall asleep to a t.v. or music. I do need a little noise though. I keep my ceiling fan and stand up fan on high and the air conditioner on 68!!! The stand up fan sounds like a helicopter!!! I can't sleep without it.

    Yep, I used to bitch because if I couldn't sleep having that damn channel on made me hungry. Now if it's anything else I get too interested and end up awake half the night. I just put a pillow over my head and deal with it.

    I am the same way. I have to have a fan blowing on my face or I cant sleep. I take my own with me when I travel. People think I'm strange, just gives them another reason to think so.

    I used too, when I had a tv and computer in my room. I'd put the tv on one of the music channels, or play some of the music on my computer...could be anything, just fairly quiet. Took a lot of getting used to sleeping without it, but I adjusted by making sure I left the box fan on all the time

    I'm not quite that bad, but my brother is. He has to take his fan with him when he visits me, since I won't let him take mine. And if he goes anywhere else too...his wife hates it.

    Sometimes that will happen - I'll get interested in what's on tv and end up staying awake far too late.
