This never fails to put Miss Yith to sleep if left on repeat.
She seldom makes it to the end of the second run through:

Music with any plink sounds wakes me straight up. It's because of stimulating the brain or summat.

Anyway, my way of relaxing/falling asleep is to listen to a male voice droning on.
Any subject will do. The audiobook of Andrew Marr's A History of Modern Britain always does the trick. ;)

Jeez, there have to be more mellifluous male voices than that to send you off to slumber... Martin Jarvis records about ten audiobooks in a day, try one of his.

I remember watching this performed by Orbital at Glastonbury in '94 (I think it was '94) .. the crowd did a big cheer up cheer .. my tape cassette of this track had a picture of God sitting on a throne wearing a virtual reality helmet ..

Stuff in reverse .. I find this strangely relaxing, I wouldn't eat his omelette though.

I had a near perfect Saturday morning, including the most relaxing bath with sandalwood bubbles, and Radio 3 playing Mozart. I felt as refined as possible and half expected to step out and find my house had grown a breakfast room, sunlit and twinkling. I could hear Archie playing footie with his bottle top but translated that into Lord Byron (okay, not a relaxing man but hey, he's one of my dream men!) playing tiddly-winks.

You maybe/probably don't share my fantasies of Lord Byron and sunlit breakfast rooms, but here's some gentle, elegantly light Mozart...relax...
