While studying, which song do you like to hear?

I, for one, seldom study without a soft music playing in the background. Especially for subjects like maths I find music mandatory. I like to hear soft instrumentals while studying.
Give your choice of songs so others can try it. Meanwhile study hard!

Re: While Studying, which song do you like to hear?

I like to have fast and high energy songs playing in the background when I'm studying or doing school work because it keeps my brain awake. If I listen to slow songs my mind will start to wander.

Re: While Studying, which song do you like to hear?

I guess it depends on what I'm doing! I always need to have some kind of music playing though.

Re: While Studying, which song do you like to hear?

I usually listen to instrumental music when I'm studying 'cause if there's singing it can be distracting. My favorites are the Pirates of the Caribbean and Pride and Prejudice soundtracks

Re: While Studying, which song do you like to hear?

I mainly listen to Dashboard Confessional because they are nice and soft, relaxing and get me in a good mood. Upbeat music only distracts me.

Re: While Studying, which song do you like to hear?

Have any of you heard the 'Bombay theme'...It's my favorite song while studying...I usually prefer instrumentals for technical subjects but I listen to fast-beat tracks while doing math...The tempo really drives me through troubled waters...

Re: While Studying, which song do you like to hear?

Depends what Im studying. If its something really difficult I might have Anberlin or Muse's second album (OoS) on but if its something I am good at and enjoy then I'll put on Marilyn Manson or Underoath, something that gets me pumped.

Re: While Studying, which song do you like to hear?

I usually had the radio on when studying so the songs varied. If I had to study now I would use jazz. For memorizing however I've always needed silence, I am distracted easily.

Re: While Studying, which song do you like to hear?

It depends on my mood more than on what I'm doing, but it varies greatly from classic over jazz and alternative to punk. Anything goes. Certainly it's hardly completely quite in my room.

It varies depending on what I'm studying, but mostly I like Air and lots of instrumentals.

I either listen to Classical, or my "Inspirational" Playlist, which is like half of the Rocky Soundtrack, Don't Stop Believing, and Move Along

Re: While Studying, which song do you like to hear?

I just listen to whatever itunes pulls up. I keep it on shuffle at all times, and if it plays something I don't feel like listening to, I'll just go switch it. If I'm doing homework, I usually block it out anyway, unless I've been working too long, but it's nice to come out of that studying stupor and say "oh, sweet, this song rocks."

Re: While Studying, which song do you like to hear?

I don't particularly "study" since I'm not in school, but I do work from home, so if I'm doing my work (typing, emails, filing) I normally have a play list running with different types of music. I really all depends on what I'm into at the moment.

Re: While Studying, which song do you like to hear?

I usually listen to "Radio Clásica", it's a radio channel here in Spain that only plays Classical music. It usually helps me to concentrate, though I can't have it very loud. When they are playing too odd music (they have times in which they suddenly begin to play contemporary music, whic usuallu sounds too creaky for me), I turn on the CD. In these cases, I find that Bach's cello suites are a very good sountrack to study.

Re: While studying, which song do you like to hear?

Depends on either what type of mood I'm in, I sometimes rather have silence so I can think more on my homework. But sometimes I turn on the radio to the oldies.

Re: While studying, which song do you like to hear?

It really depends on the subject I'm studying. If it's English and lots of reading is required, I'll listen mostly to classical music, mostly Bach or Vivaldi. I'll also listen to a lot of instrumental music (soundtracks and stuff, or God Is An Astronaut and Craig Armstrong, etc).

If it's Math and Physics, I'll be able to listen to generally whatever. From Bach to Muse to audiobooks to Mugglecast, whatever I want to listen to. Though I don't recommend listening to DH on audiobook while doing homework, because I started bawling towards the end and had to pause my homework. :/
