Musicians clearly appreciate slumber as there are tons of great songs about sleeping.

Ben Gibbard sure does like sleep. His Postal Service sleep songs, “The District Sleeps Alone Tonight” and “Sleeping In,” both made this list. The Barenaked Ladies on the other hand aren't worried about getting eight hours of sleep a night. They released the tune “Who Needs Sleep” in 1998.
