Tonight on the Panel, George talks insomnia with Robin Duke, Ron Sparks and Dave Merheje. One upside of staying up late? You can follow George's #Insongnia picks on Twitter: song recommendations that are just perfect at two or three in the morning. Below, 25 of his #Insongnia jams from the last couple of years. Got your own late-night faves? Just tweet them out with the #Insongnia hashtag — preferably some time after midnight.

Make sure to tune in to the program tonight, November 19 at 7 p.m., to catch the insomnia panel, as well as George's interview with Sue Grafton.
