    Exactly

    I'm currently listening to Mega Dance 2004 Vol 2. Either that just now, or I catch up on (BBC) Radio 1

    Nice banging beats just to get the old brain cells into gear I say

    I have a few cd's on rotation for background noise. Nothing to distracting at all like the TV, wouldn't get any work done then if that was on.

    Hmmm music is very important when iam working on comp.But the question is: Which music is best for work and does music change overall quality of work.
    For example,if Bill Gates while creating first windows was listening some kind of Japan rock,does windows be the same?;P

    Nice find. Installed.

    Oh, and works with Windows Media Player 10, too.

    Edit:

    Scratch that. Somehow it crashes it every time.

    ministry, system of a down, sepultura, pantera, metallica for them late nights to keep awake...

    ...but when the caffiene is taking full effect in the mid/early mornings, I jam the Infected Mushroom and Astrix through my headphones. Really makes design work a lot more pleasurable and actually seems to provide inspiration.

    * methinks of that geeky guy from one james bond movie where he kept jumping up and going "I am eenvincable!!" *

    I don't think my computer knows what not having music on is...I usually leave it on even when I am not on the computer! Right now like usual I am listening to Linkin Park, and then I like to listen to most any other alt rock.

    I'm an old guy, so I listen to either 50's-60's R&R, or a web radio station with that format. I get a big kick out of Brando Classic Radio with 40's and 50's radio shows, especially the mystery shows. I find that music/radio theater helps block out other distractions.

    For me, anything visual is too distracting, but "theater of the mind" is not. I don't see how anyone can actually work and watch at the same time, but maybe it's possible.

    I like to have something rythmic and without words like classical or african music.

    I also have the greatest radio station where I live with tons of variety. They are also an online broadcast pioneer: http://www.kexp.org/

    When I do any kind of developing on the web I find that music is more distracting than anything. If my favourite kind of music is playing, I pay more attention to the music than the screen.

    Personally i need total silence to code and think straight. It allows me to focus more on the task. Although, i have found i get more work done if i'm talking to someone on msn at the same time. I think it's just like an excuse to take a break every 10 minutes to chat for a couple seconds. If i'm not coding, usually listening to Hip hop, rap, comedy styles and a little punk rock.

    I just have the same two 'Free' CDs looping around endlessly. That way I can listen to some good music, without it getting too distracting. (; Those angsty guitar riffs are a perfect sound to code to.
