last weeks have been epic music mixes like: this one[^]
but I do like too: celtic, new age, electronic, deep house, minimalistic, chill out, lounge, jazz....
One thing is a must if it has to be during work time, it should have few or no lyrics (the voices can distract me)
After work... my tastes are much much wider.
I always say: Each moment has its music, and each music has its moment.
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
No can't do music and work at the same time.
If the music is good then it will just take me over.
Sort of wish that I had the skill to do this but alas never learnt it.
It is either one or the other for me.
That being said I did like your post so thank you.
Never heard of Tobacco before.
Now I have heard about 6 songs from this album.
It is really interesting because at this moment I love it and hate it at the same time.
Sort of thrown me into a musical cognitive dissonance.
So I will have to listen to some more and listen more closely.
So thanks for the post.

It varies. Sometimes I listen to movie soundtracks (mostly from John Carpenter movies like The Thing, They Live, etc.). A while back I played every song on my phone in alphabetical order which took a while (never knew I had so many different live versions of "Let There Be Rock" by AC/DC). I just started listening to the iTunes "Purchased" playlist. It's basically the history of every song I ever purchased from iTunes though I'm not sure how it orders the songs. I mostly like classic rock but I've recently gotten into some other newer groups/artists like Orianthi, Gary Clark, Jr., and Night Club.
Mostly things before the 80's. Everything from classical (for hardest problems) to Merle Haggard to Pink Floyd. Silence when the going gets tough.
TOBACCO reminded me of an old transistor radio and trying to tune in an FM station that is between two others. It had some strange appeal though.
God is an Astronaut, Caspian, Explosions in the Sky, Do Make Say Think, This Will Destroy You, and Mogwai are my mainstays. Not fitting into that category, but something I've also been listening to lately is a lot of George Winston.
I feel like that about Rhymesayers but then, I can listen to lyrics while I code and a lot of people can't. It also helps me focus when I'm manic because it ties up all the stray distractions into one place - any focus not on code is on the lyrics. =) I'm an oddball.
When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
