Top Ten Beautiful Songs to Listen When You're Resting


The Top Ten

1 Nella Fantasia - Jackie Evancho Nella Fantasia - Jackie Evancho

This is one of my favorite songs, period. Another song I would like to add to this list is "Imaginer". A couple more are "To Believe" and "What A Wonderful World", all by Jackie. Her voice is absolutely incredible, especially considering her age. These songs highlight her voice, certainly, but they also give you something to think about, as well as hope that maybe the world doesn't have to be so bad after all. Recommended listening for anyone, anywhere, at any time.

Float away in a world of dreams, this beautiful singing will take you there!

Takes me to a place of ultimate peace..

Ultimate prescription for any ailment! Miraculous.

Not the best Owl City song to be honest... Still a great song but songs like The Real World and Firebird are much better for resting in my opinion. - NotMisterThompson

As an Owl City fan I had to place an owl city song on top, but though you surely don't know the song, it's one of the most beautiful songs to listen while resting. - keyson
