I'm looking for any songs and/or artists for peaceful, calming music. Anything orchestral or instrumental, piano, violins, guitar, whatever. Can even have lyrics just as long as it's soothing. Example would be Robert Pattinsons "Let Me Sign". I like Enya, Beethoven, etc. Thanks for any suggestions!!

To "Just for Now": Contemporary Classical is an oxymoron. Classical means it has withstood the test of time. Anything that claims to be "contemporary classical" is most likely New Age. Bond plays string instruments, yes...but so do the members of Rasputina. Also, as I'm listening to them right now, their music is nothing like classical (or "soothing" for that matter). I've heard eight songs now and they're all dance club versions of instrumental music...
