Top Ten Most Chilled-Out Blues Songs

The coolest, most laid-back Blues songs that just makes you melt into yourself where the problems of the world just seem to fizzle away like ice water on a hot baking tray. There are too many for me to remember and are in no particular order, because it's just too difficult. If there are any that you know of that I've missed, feel free to add; or vote for one that is already a favourite of yours :)

The Top Ten

1 Driftin' and Driftin' - The Paul Butterfield Blues Band

This is absolute perfection! (Well, almost; Paul's voice could be slightly deeper for me to call it "perfect") but this song in particular really makes me feel as though I'm floating (well, Driftin' n driftin, like a ship out on the sea...) It's just so chilled: the lyrics, the music (especially Paul's harp solo)... Oh my God...A-ma-ZING! - Britgirl

This man / band can do no wrong. He truly is amazing. And it's clear that he is so passionionate about the music. I've come far? Well...I've been taught by the Very best of teachers :). - Britgirl
