I try most of the time to fall asleep to music and usually it doesn't work I end up getting hype from the music. But I have manage to fall asleep to some Mike Posner and Frank Ocean.

Only what I look forward to doing every night! I actually get frustrated when I don't have music to fall asleep to, I've been doing it so long that it's become part of my natural sleeping routine. Put in my headphones, choose a song and slowly but surely become unconscious. I only ever sleep without music if I'm extremely exhausted and the sound of music would only serve to frustrate me & if my iPod is out of battery. It's just become so essential to my nightly sleeping cycle that I don't even bother to think about doing it anymore. Does anyone have a specific song they like to fall asleep to? Mine would hav to be Numb by Marina and the Diamonds, which is odd, because its such a vocal-strong song. Marina is literally screaming at one point (SHIIIIIIiiiiIIIIIInnnEEE/LOOKING FOR THE GOLDEN LIE/OH IT'S A REASONABLE SACRIFIIIICE/BURN BURN BURN BRIGHT) and yet when I hear this at night I seem to fall asleep instantly! God bless Marina Diamandis.

Music keeps me awake. I go to sleep without it playing. I like it nice, cool, and quiet... it's peaceful.

Yes I do,and it does indeed work rather well for me.
As for what I listen depends on the day,it ranges anywhere from something like Ax7/Mcr/Afi (lol,wouldn't think that would help?) to soundtrack/classical/instrumental music. x)

I'll fall asleep listening to music, but I don't purposefully use it to fall asleep if that makes any sense. :P And even if it's something rowdy or upbeat, it still won't keep me awake. Usually just my headphones because everyone around me is trying to get some sleep.

I don't really know but id assume if you were listening to something calming and relaxing from any genre you like possibly even sad songs youd have an easier time falling asleep. I would personally use speakers though having headphones or earbuds in while sleeping id only be thinking about the wires tightening around my neck while i moved in my sleep haha.
New to pokemon after a lot of years started a youtube channel to log my pulls and learn from others! I also give out free PTCGO codes in my videos since i do not play the online game.

I fall asleep to music sometimes, but when I do, its obviously to a soft tuned song, not a loud rock song with a lot of noise.

I don't think i could fall asleep while listening to music unless it was really bad or just a classical melody.

While it's all possible, I actually turn off my electronics before I go to bed so I don't think that I've tried it before... I've certainly nodded off on the bus while listening to music before though.

I've fallen asleep to music before. Usually it's soft classical music when I'm in my room, but I have fallen asleep to J-pop. And the J-pop wasn't very soft. And I was sleeping over at my friend's house. I don't do this any more, though. I miss it sometimes.

I fall asleep when I hear music I love.

Although I don't do it as often as I used to.

Music does help me sleep, because it forces me to sit in my bed with my eyes closed, and concentrate. Eventually my mind just gets tired, and I fall asleep.

I cannot sleep without music. I use an old CD player and I put in dance music CDs. I usually fall asleep by the third or fourth song unless I have a major case of insomnia.

When I go to sleep, I have my radio on all night. I for some reason cannot sleep in complete silence.

If I'm not tired at all, then music only serves to reinforce my ability to stay awake when I'm trying to get to sleep. If, on the other hand, I am kinda sleepy, then the right kind of music (gentle, ambient, slow-ish) can just send me straight to sleep. So it's really a Russian roulette as to whether music can help me fall asleep or not.

Not one bit does it work at all. Most of my music is pop music which I listen to help me boost my mood confidence before I go out somewhere. All it would do would keep me up and awake and annoyed. However, I do find having the TV on while I sleep kind of soothing. I lower the volume and let it run, the TV turns off by itself (you can set a timer.)

I need silence - or as close to it as possible - in order to sleep, so I've never been able to fall asleep to music. Not that I haven't tried in the past when I've been ill with cold and haven't been able to sleep in the first place.

I've gone back to sleep thanks to music, though. Sometimes if I wake up early and don't feel like going back to sleep I'll put my iPod on, and as I listen to quiet things that early in the morning - I'm a very light sleeper; my senses are particularly acute, and loud music would probably give me a headache at that time of day - it can lull me back to sleep, although I seem to wake up when it stops playing.
