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

When studying history anything by Rage Against The Machine, their highly political lyrics have references to the cold war, which always helps me remember, then in the test, if say, Vietnam came up, i would remember Vietnow, which talks about the use of media during the vietnam war as propoganda =]
any other subjects, My Chemical Romance or Paramore

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

I find that I like to study to any kind of classical music. I find that if I don't know the song, I keep focused a lot easier. Or, I like to listen to oldies songs from the 90's that I used to hear on the radio. I find it comforting.

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

I usually don't have music playing while I do homework, because I end up singing along to it and I can get pretty distracted. But if I do want to listen, I usually put on non-lyrical music from movie soundtracks, usually Pirates of the Caribbean.

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

I completely agree with the soundtracks idea. I love listening to Classic FM compendiums and I also really like Pirates of the Caribbean, King Kong, Stardust, Poseidon and The Lord of the Rings soundtracks. If I'm in a really good mood, I'll aim more for Disney soundtracks, because they have a nice mix of lyrics and classical stuff, and I love that.

I didn't pick those ones because they're my favourite films, I picked them because the music really fits a studying mood. It's not too slow, not too fast.

If I really feel like getting serious, I have cds of Handel, Mozart, Beethoven etc, that rarely see the inside of a cd player, but when they do they really relax me.

Another one is the Soundtrack from the HBO series, "Band of Brothers", that was a real help when I was trying to learn World War Two, the music just fits perfectly in my head. (Probably because it was written for a TV series about... well, world war two..)

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

I just listen to the bands and artists I find to be most relaxing...
Such as The Vines, The Silents, Radiohead, Mew, Bat For Lashes, Laura Marling, Mystery Jets, Pete and the Pirates, Arcade Fire and etc.
It depends on the mood...
I was studying for my exams these past few weeks, and I found out that the album "Trees Outside The Academy" by Thurston Moore (the guitarist of Sonic Youth) calms me down while studying. It's quite relaxing.

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

I'm used to listen to Rise Against or Kings of Convenience when studying, sometimes Korn. I only listen to music while studying math though. I don't really have music suitable for anything else..

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

The soundtrack of Pride and Prejudice is my recent favourite!
It works so well and is beautiful to listen to..

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

Recently I've been listening to anime music while studying Bit nerdy I know but it doesn't distract me too much, isn't thrashy like most of my music and is easy to listen to.

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

Anime music, now there's something I haven't tried. lately for me it's been old classical music and more soundtracks- though I have moved to some musical soundtracks too, and some random relaxing music... Yiruma, Classic FM... You never know what you'll find when you're looking..

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

I practically listen to too much music, I actually forget that music is playing and notice when it's not. I just have to have something in my ears . While studying, it all depends how much concentration i have to spare. If it's something hard, nice instrumental music (of any kind), if not, heavy metal, rock, alternative, etc

Colbie Caillat, her voice is peaceful and her music, on its own is so calming, its hard not to really work well during it, for some reason!...I find her music good for almost anything

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

I recently started on this shuffle business with my MP3 player...

I was four songs in when I hit on some loud rock screaming, which scared me quite a lot and resulted in my taking a 20 minute break to calm myself down. I haven't shuffled since, but I see the merit behind it! !

These days I listen to Snow Patrol when studying- the slow songs fit nicely and the fast ones make me want to work a little bit harder.

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

When I studied ( back a few years ago, when i was in school- never had to study, i could memorize things) i used alot of long songs- like 10-20 minute live peices of Led Zeppelin's art. I used mainly Rock and Roll music, and Prog too in my Senior Year of High School. I usually related things to my music during class. in my notes, i wrote lyrics to songs and highlighted those, and i knew what it meant.

Anything without lyrics! I can't concentrate if i'm listening to lyrics, so it's mainly classical or film soundtracks.
