It was something along the lines of REM being the best music to listen to when laying in bed at night. It didn't take me long to recall a band - and an album - that I would make a case for.
Before I even go there, I know this will be a controversial selection because REM is - for want of a better word - 'softer' - than the band I am about to mention...
Guns 'N Roses - Appetite For Destruction.
There's a good reason why this album jumped to the top of my consciousness when I thought about an album that's good to listen to in the dark as sleep beckons.
It's how I was first introduced to it.
When I visited my relatives in Germany, my cousin used to play it when we were going to sleep at night. While writing this post, I had a listen to some of the songs just to see if it could trigger a memory or two and it has.
The opening part of My Michelle brings me back to laying on the floor of the bedroom. In fact - I am hitting the back and forward button on the app and the beginning of many of these songs reminds me of those German nights.
Yes - it's controversial because I am sure there are many other albums out there that are more suitable. It's just that Appetite For Destruction is the first one I can recall listening to as I dropped off to sleep, so it'll be my go to answer for questions like this.
