I debated about starting this, but here's a challenge.

What music, if any do you listen to while you are working. I'll start first.

I do some of my best work to gospel and Elvis. Ironically, I'm an 80s rock and metal fan.

Creative work requires Sigur Ros, Explosions in the Sky, Coldplay, anything along those lines.

Depends.

If it's editing grunt work, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, BT, and Def Leppard.

None if there is audio I need to pay attention to.

Otherwise, usually reggae or classical.

Graphics work: usually heavy metal or rock (what is it about classic Metallica that seems to get the creative juices flowing?)

Digitizing video and selecting shots for batch capture: country (just good background noise)

editing: nothing, since I'm concentrating on voice or hitting music bed cues.

Dang! I must be a dolt. I can't have any music when I work. It breaks my concentration. I listen to music before I work in order to allow my brain the inspiration to visualize ideas and listen once again after to imagine those ideas have come to frution.

I listen to mostly oldies: Beach Boys, Four Seasons, All of Motown and any other stuff from the 1960s, 70s, 80s.

In the car I listen to whatever catches my ear, including rap, R & B, hard rock, funk.

"Old Joe Went To London Town..." (I still hear the banjo picks and man, were they good! That guy was great!)

Hey Will,
I was trying to be halfway funny with that answer. Normally, I don't listen to anything but the audio on the timeline, but since my last two projects have been Bluegrass...

Actually, I have grown to really like it, which is a good thing since I'm in this Bluegrass band! We'll be playing 3X a day in Branson (Silver Dollar City, to be precise) Oct. 24-28. Would love to see ya there; maybe combine that with a visit to your Mom! I even do my version of an Irish jig to "Old Joe Clark" --the song Hugh referenced earlier. Sort of like Van Halen meets River Dance. (just kidding, but did anyone see David Lee Roth singing "Jump" with a Bluegrass band on Jay Leno a while back? :)

If I'm editing audio critical stuff then nothing, but if graphics or no brainer stuff then some Red Hot Chili Peppers or Audioslave otherwise I'll throw on some older episodes of "24" mostly the first half of season 2. (very epic in my humble opinion.)
