    Better than Ezra's new album is good. :) My favorite single off "Before the Robots" is "Our Last Night"..

    But you were gonna be a doctor, movie star
    A poet at a Nobel seminar
    I hope the world never tore that out of you

    I know we're probably part of a minority who listen to music while studying though. :laugh:

    Bach's cello suites played by Yo-Yo Ma :thumbup:
    My husband is partial to Tchaikovsky, but he'll listen to anything, from the classic rock radio station to the country music station to my Beatles, Paul Simon, old 60's/70's mix CDs, and especially anything classical.

    Personally I can't really listen to music when I study because it's distracting. I can listen to Bach's cello suites, though. I've been listening to them while studying since I was about 12 or 13 and at this point it's part of my brain that when I hear them I focus on what I'm doing.

    If you need to pump yourself up--Don't Stop Me Now by Queen!
     
  13. Usually I don't listen to music while studying. However, sometimes I get this ADHD mentality and can't focus on anything.

    Then, it helps to listen to something soft with lots of music. I like Moby, Lifehouse and have a piano-only classic rock CD. :)

    I listen to anything by Yo-Yo Ma, lyrical music gives me a sort of ADD while I study.

    I can't study without it either, but I need music without lyrics - jazz or instrumental hip-hop or something just esoteric and freaky. or just hip-hop built on some dope breaks. or something. I don't know.

    this is embarrassing, but i used to study while watching "scarface" on constant loop. if i wanted a study break, i would just look at the t.v. for a few minutes.

    otherwise, i'd usually study either sans music or to sublime (usually 2nd hand smoke) to drown out the neighbors.

    Whoo! Jazz! Finally someone else who likes jazz. So, have you heard monk and trane at carnegie hall? In '57, after trane was kicked out of miles davis' quartet for heroin use, he cleaned himself up and went to play with monk for 6 months in NYC. There were like 4 recordings of six months of dates (mostly because of record label disputes. boooo!) but VOA recorded a charity show at carnegie hall in november of '57. Then they hid it. Why, I'll never know... But earlier this year someone found the masters in the library of congress and blue note cleaned it up and just released it and it's fantastic. Not that I condone stealing but if you want some mp3s.... you know, just to, uh, try it out.
    That's all.

    What's the secret code word for "hell yeah I want to try it out"? I have several Monk CD's and a few Coltrane's but nothing of the two together!

    Oh, damn, you knew the code! I've uploaded a zip archive. All of the songs on the album are in there. It's free to download from this site. You don't have to register or anything so it's not like I'm setting you up to have the FBI come and knock on your door. I'm not sending you viruses or anything, so don't worry about that. Well, me saying I'm not is sort of empty, but I'm not. Trust me, I have an avatar of an angry black man on the telephone. Later he will be smiling. Isn't that enough for you?
    Anyway, go here andclick on "download now". http://s9.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=34AXFZ1MSD73H0Q7J329G9MZXN
    I'm not going to do this anymore, though. Because frankly, there are more appropriate channels for stealing music. enjoy.

    blockhead? you know you love so much better instrumental hip-hop. rjd2, dj shadow, diplo, prefuse 73.... don't get me wrong, blockhead's production for aesop rock is always dope.

    fourtet music was in a nike commercial

    Anyone else like music that no one else has heard of?

    Eros Ramazzotti - awesome italian pop singer
    Deep Forest - spectacular world fusion
    Habib Koite - from Mali amazing vocals
    Anggun - what a voice, french
    Ivan Kupala - russian folk with awesome beats
    Matisyahu - the rapping hassidic jew
    Nitin Sawhney - amazing electronic, world beat, sampling
    Vusi Mahlasela - south african, high pitch voice, amazing
    Mafikizolo - south african kwaito
    Bravo - south african rap

    My friends just give me weird looks. There is so many kinds of music its amazing! I don't care much for lyrics, so whatever language its in is fine with me.

    Thanks for the tunes, desired. I will be listening to this whilst I create my PPT presentation on the synthesis of a 9,10-pentacosadiene pheromone found in scarab beetles. Trust me, it's a compliment.
