The majority of us likely have a sick day routine, and I'd estimate that most of us incorporate a television into these plans. Whether its catching up with a TV series, inexplicably watching children's entertainment, or snuggling up with Bob Bark-erm...Drew...Carey, visual accompaniment is usually incorporated with vomiting uncontrollably.
Even I rarely incorporate music into the picture unless I'm having difficulty sleeping. But if I'm sick and struggling to count sheep, NyQuil takes precedence over soothing sounds.
I ask because today I am your test subject and target audience. I'm sick with the Gremlins: in addition to light sensitivity, I've eaten greasy tacos after midnight, and now my stomach is multiplying. Seemingly, I have five conditions for sick day music:
- Easy on anything with bass.
- No grating vocals. Preference is to be completely devoid of vocals.
- Post-rock, or songs that naturally crescendo, is desired.
- Cannot be better when listened to in headphones. (Today is not a headphones day.)
- No License to Ill puns as an answer.
