    you could say "for sleep and relaxation", or you could say "for sleeping and relaxing". relax is not a noun so would not be used as a noun like you have offered. If you decide to use the gerund form (the -ing form of the verb as a noun) then you ought to use it for sleep as well (sleep is both a verb and a noun).

    Both seem a little off. Why not try "Songs for relaxation or sleep" or "Songs for sleeping or relaxing"? This will give more uniformity to the sentence.

    If this is a title of a collection of songs to help someone relax, or sleep, then an appropriate title is: 'Songs for Relaxation And Sleep.'

    Songs to help you relax and go to sleep. If you must use a noun, use "relaxation" rather than "relaxing".

    It would be best to use participial forms for both sleep and relax, such as sleeping or relaxing.

    If you want the two terms to be parallel, you can make them both common nouns ("for sleep or relaxation), or gerunds ("for sleeping or relaxing").

    Neither one of your examples contains parallel terms. They aren't "incorrect"; they're just awkward.

    Neither sentence is correct. The correct version is: Songs for Sleeping or Relaxing.
