We don't know about you guys, but one of our favorite times to listen to music is at the end of a long, busy day. That comforting feeling of just winding down for the evening is perfect for a compilation of soothing tracks, which UK record label Night Time Stories has got down on lock. For over a decade, the label has been releasing the series Late Night Tales, where artists are asked to put together their own playlist of tracks they think are the best soundtrack for just-before-betime. Acts like MGMT, Snow Patrol, and The Flaming Lips have all compiled Late Night Tales in the past, and it got us thinking: what songs would WE put on a Night Time Stories compilation?

When it comes to our selection, we just thought of some of our favorite tracks of all time, which is pretty much how these compilations are assembled. Take a look below at our Late Night playlist, give it a listen off Spotify, and then start thinking about YOUR Late Night track list!
