I like this station playing when I work, based on The Head and the Heart: http://www.pandora.c...263935737828888
What music do you have playing in the background?

When I am busy being creative I will always have come kind of Country music playing in the background. Being a huge Country music fan and the words in a lot of Country songs being truthful it can give me a lot of creative ideas when I am working on anything like that. It also gives me the motivation to be able to create some really good pieces as well.

I don't have any such particular taste for a specific genre (country comes quite close though). But when I start doing some work I just open my itunes library and set it on shuffle mode and pick up one song that I want to hear at that time and then let shuffling do the rest.
At times I often forget what's playing in the background but it actually helps me in isolating myself from the world and letting me concentrate on my work only.
I find songs by Bryan Adams quite good for a kickstart like (The best of me, Cloud number nine, All I want is you etc.)

I came through this article some time ago and found it of interest so I stashed it and now that I got remembered of it after your video I would like to share it
According to this article the top 10 tunes that can relax our mind are
1. Marconi Union - Weightless
2. Airstream - Electra
3. DJ Shah - Mellomaniac (Chill Out Mix)
4. Enya - Watermark
5. Coldplay - Strawberry Swing
6. Barcelona - Please Don't Go
7. All Saints - Pure Shores
8. Adelev Someone Like You
9. Mozart - Canzonetta Sull'aria
10. Cafe Del Mar - We Can Fly
While I don't particularly agree on everything written in there but I did actually found those tunes having at least some degree of calming effect when I had a bugged up mind.
What do you all think ?
