Easy Listening Music for the Soul

Updated on May 15, 2020

As a music lover of all genres, this is me sharing a small sliver of my taste in music.

Easy Listening Music can mean different things to people but mainly it is music that is soothing and relaxing.

The music that we hear today is quite different from back in the day, and being a 90s kid, I loved all kinds of music and still do. It was something I could always use to connect with people as I listened to all genres.

I grew up listening to my fair share of instrumental music, however there is nothing quite like some easy listening music that can really sooth the soul and I am thankful to my Dad for that. I remember as a kid I would go out and come back home to my Dad sitting in the hall listening to music that just felt so peaceful and soothing. It might be an acquired taste but if you give it a chance it might just transport you to a world of peace and tranquility.


Here are My Top 5 Favorite Easy Listening albums

Hope you like it!

  1. One of the very first albums I found myself falling in love with was Enigma’s MCMXC a.D.. The album was a German music project that was the first of its kind. The track “The Voice of Enigma” is mesmerizing, and it is hard to describe in words, but it very quickly became one of my favorite tracks. There were times I would just close my eyes and just listen to really enjoy it to the fullest.

2. Have you ever watched a movie and find a song playing in the background that totally catches your attention? If you’re anything like me, you won’t rest till you find the name of the song! Sweet November was a movie I really loved, and I heard the song “Only Time” by Enya. Eithne Pádraigín Ní Bhraonáin, known professionally as Enya has one of the most soothing and calming voices I have ever heard. The album A Day Without the Rain by Enya is truly one of her best!

3. You can’t mention easy listening music without including the new age music artist Yanni. Though many may remember his music from Live at the Acropolis, “Dare to Dream” by Yanni was one of the very first albums of his I heard. I used to play the Piano and remember listening to “Once upon a time” on repeat till I learnt how to play the melody.

4. I think the only Saxophonist I ever listened to more than a few tracks, must be the album “The Greatest Hits” by Kenny G. The American Jazz Saxophonist really is undoubtedly one of the best.

5. Though the Buddha Bar music albums have been out since the late 90s, one of their particularly good albums is “The Buddha Bar III”. The Buddha Bar compilation albums are popular for their compilations of lounge, chill-out and world music. I must admit this may not be everyone’s cup of tea. It consists of combinations of sounds, music from around the world and sometimes even includes specific instruments or languages from some different countries. It's not something you can listen to all the time but have a listen and you’ll understand what I mean by it being very “different”.

Below are a few other artists and their tracks you may like:

- Storm by Vanessa Mae

- Crystallize by Lindsey Stirling

- Matsuri by Kitaro

In a time and age where everyone is always in a hurry to move on to the next thing, sometimes its good to slow down and drift away for a bit with some easy listening music.

Thank you for reading and Happy Listening!
