10 Most Peaceful Songs, Inspired by World Meditation Hour

You need to chill. No doubt about it. Look at those bitten fingernails, bloodshot eyes. You're worried about your dog's teeth, Syrian refugees, the Ogallala Aquifer. There is no end to the things worth stressing.

Instead of worrying your way through yoga this week, head to Young Circle this Sunday for a global mediation for world peace. World Meditation Hour -- during which you meditate on world peace -- launched in 1978, but Hollywood got in on the action in May. You'll spend an hour on Father's Day along with mediators in over 90 countries, reflecting on "collective inner worlds" they say.

To get you pumped, or deflated or whatever, for the event, we put together 10 of the most peaceful songs we could for one of the most calming playlists of all time. Namaste.

10. Bjork - "Undo"

Vespertine is one of the most trance-inducing albums of all time. Each song is a lullaby. Bjork handles your metal state like a mother would her wanted newborn. A perfect song for insomniacs.

9. Bob Marley - "Chances Are"

Sadness becomes total peace in this perfect song.
