Musical Relaxation

The weekend, a perfect time to break all the hassle and routine from your week, a time to spend with friends and family, a time to try out something new, a time for relaxation.

To achieve the latter there's nothing better than listening to some music while you're resting on your couch, bed, or are spending time on your computer. You can do this by listening to the genre and artist of your preference, yet this time I'll recommend some performers from the 60s and 70s. Their music can be classified as instrumental, bossa nova, easy listening, jazz, yet they all have two things in common: they were played "everywhere" during those years and they will help you relax and spend a good time.

In no order of importance I suggest you check out:
