The great part about music is that you can write a song about anything, but for this list we're ranking the best songs about taking it slow. Do you have a favorite slowing down song? Whether it's rock, rap, country, or anything in between, we want you to vote up your favorites on this list of songs about being slow. You can even add additional tracks to the poll if any good slowing down songs are missing, so feel free to contribute to the list. We've included YouTube videos to accompany the songs when available, so think of this page as a slowing down songs playlist.

Some of the songs below include Drive Slow by Paul Wall, Nice & Slow by Usher, and Slow Down by Brand Nubian. A song can qualify to be on this in two ways. First, the song has the word slow in the title or lyrics, or some close variation of that word. Second, the song is conceptually about slowing down, even if it doesn't specifically mention that word.
