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

I absolutely cannot study without music playing. I can't study to classical music like a few of my mates do because for some reason, I find it distracting. I try to listen to music that belongs to genre I like but isn't a band I know - like a band that I have not previously listened to but I am trying to get into them. That way I am learning new songs but I don't know all the words to them so therefore I won't be singing along (which can be distracting).

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

My favorite radio stations so I can have songs I know well enough to hum along too but not sing along to every word of every song or else I'd never get my math done. I like having it on a radio station that does play my favorite songs every once in a while so I can sing along for a little bit and kinda take a break from the monotony of homework. When I'm writing though I have to have something softer so I'll pop in a CD my friend made me for my birthday. They're all songs I know pretty well but have heard enough times that I don't get the rush of 'I love this song' except for 2 songs, 1 about 7 tracks in and the other is the 2nd to last one.

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

It depends on my mood and what I am studying. If it is memorizing or writing essays or reading texts, then no music because it distracts me. If I am doing easy math problems, then something soft like Evanescence does the trick. And if it is something like filling worksheets and interpreting data etc. then I need something more upbeat. It relaxes me and keeps me awake.

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

When studying, I just like to listen to something. That way, I don't feel lonely. Sometimes, I can't concentrate, so I don't listen to music, but most of the time, I have to because I don't feel right if it's too quiet. It's a bit of an oxymoron.

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

I never had a particular song, but I always found it helped to have music playing, I seemed to concentrate more on what I was studying in order to ignore the music, and it always helped me to study longer, if I didn't have music playing I'd only last about half the time!

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

Personally, I need to be listening to instrumental pieces, with no lyrics at all. Otherwise, I get easily distracted by singing along!

When I have to concentrate on something, I generally play the Lord Of The Rings' OST on the background... Amazing stuff on that album!

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

I can rarely concentrate properly if I'm listening to music with lyrics (unless it's Classical music) but one artist I can listen to while I'm working are Pet Shop Boys. I'm not sure why, it's probably something to do with tempo and the time signature their music is written in.

Usually when I'm writing essays (which is virtually all I do at Uni) I'll be listening to classical music on the radio because it's relaxing and helps me focus. Anything too upbeat and with too many words will generally make me start singing along and lose concentration completely! Some favourite music to listen to is music from the PotC movies, or the HP movies. Other than that I'll quite happily have on any Classical music, from Mozart to Verdi (I seem to be really in to Verdi's Grand March & Ballet from Aida at the moment). I can't work in silence, I find that oddly distracting too.

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

I can't concentrate at all when there's music in the background. I'm one of those people who needs absolutely silence to work. Occasionally instrumental soundtracks or classical music is alright, but generally, I get so distracted that I get nothing done.

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

I actually do best with no music, unless I'm falling asleep. Usually the sounds outside are enough.

When I do listen though, it's usually something instrumental, but not always. Instrumental or vocals, it also has to be soft and something I don't know well or know well enough that I'd normally skip it when listening to my music on shuffle for random listening pleasure -- really, just nothing that I'll find myself singing or humming along instead of focusing

I also have a few playlists already made with specific songs when I don't feel like skipping around. My zune also has a quicklist that lets you make a temporary playlist when I'm on the go without my laptop to create a new permanent one, which is good.

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

music kind of distracts me, unfortunately.
however the two songs that i love to hear while studying are 'snow (hey oh)' by the red hot chilli peppers, and 'bubbly' by colbie calliat. they are both soft but energetic at the same time, if that makes any sense.

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

When I recently studied for my finals I listened to the Veronica Mars soundtrack, Alanis Morissette's Jagged Little Pill, Stanley Climbfall by Lifehouse, Nord Nord Ost by Subway to Sally and The 13th Warrior soundtrack. Strange mix, I know.

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

I don't care what music I hear while I study. I just have to be listening to something. I can't stand the silence while I'm studying.

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

I just put my Napster on shuffle. I definitely have to listen to music though, otherwise my mind wandes.

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

I prefer to study in when I'm home alone and there are no distractions. But that doesn't happen too often. My house is often loud, and I have to drown the noise out – so I’ll put Michael Giacchino’s Lost score or Henry Mancini’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s score. I just tend to song along to songs with lyrics, which doesn’t help my studying at all.

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

My recent favorite is the Bombay theme...It is an orchestra with flute and violin at the forefront...
It is that kind off a song which you don't need to concentrate on but when you do concentrate upon it it's soothing...

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

In college I studied to a lot of Mozart. I couldn't study to anything with words - I'd get distracted. Classical music was good, but for some reason Mozart was the best.
