I do like to listen to music when I am at the PC. Usually something British like The Fall, The Smiths etc, or sometimes I like some of the alternative American stuff (Sonic Youth, Pixies, White Stripes).

when i'm learning, i listen to classical music (typically beethoven, puccini, verdi, tchajkovskij, , rachmaninov, chopin, debussy or ravel) - i have to know the music well, otherwise i find myself listening to the music instead of learning ... while programming, i prefer something loud and aggresive (malevolent creation, cannibal corpse, deicide, krabathor, slayer, metallica, mortician, etc.), and for anything else it's typically some good rock or whatever (sleater kinney, frank zappa, pj harvey, tarafuki, no doubt, queen, etc.)... also quite a good choice is subgenius' hour of slack... when i "switch off listening" to the dialogs, it's a nice "working mess"

Now that I have broadband, I listen mostly to magnatunes.com. It's for independent artists, you'll never hear anything you've ever heard on the radio. Totally free, and almost commercial-free (just the occasional "you're listening to magnatunes.com", and even those are done with wit). If you decide to buy any of the albums featured, the artist gets 50% of what you pay.

I listen to whatevers making noise in the background. If its the TV, then TV, if the radios on, then the radio etc. etc. I'm not easily distracted when I'm working. At the moment I'm listening to my dogs whining to go out.

My favorite music to listen to while doing restorations is the soundtrack from Amelie, soundtrack from Chocolat, ragtime, my singers/standards channel on the cable box, or big band. The soundtrack to Father of the Bride is good too. As for photo art... I can listen to everything from Verde to the Doobie Brothers to Erasure to Hot Hot Heat. Each brings out a different level of art from me. I can't work well without music. I find if I don't have music on, I only focus on all the crap in my life like bills, doctors appointments, etc. Music saves every day of my life.

Re: What do you listen to while working?

Funny that who wrote the question use "The Boss" as an example. I have a huge music selection but usually end up in the Thunder Road area. I am a big ole' sap so it's usually something making me cry, adding emotion to my work. Country sometimes, Vivaldi, very eclectic.

"Well the screen door slams
Mary's dress waves,
Like a vision she dances across the front porch
as the radio plays
Roy Orbison is singing for the lonely
Girl it's me and I want you only.....................................

Re: What do you listen to while working?

Now that brings back some memories.

First time I heard Bruce was when I bought the "Born to Run" album in Hobart (Tasmania). I was on shore leave from a ship I was working on and looking for some music to play on those long evening watches, Bruce just hit the spot.

Reading those lyrics brings back memories of warm nights as we crossed the Indian Ocean, sailing from Australia to East Africa.
