Lateralus is good stuff.
Personally though, I like music thats a bit more optimistic when I work on securing my career in medicine, so i turn on other stuff....

Vocal trance (Ian Van Dahl, 4 Strings, etc) is good for apps

Also, i'm currently diggin on Shakira, Fijacion Oral vol 1...its in spanish, and i dont understand spanish, so i dont get distracted by the lyrics. Plus, her spanish stuff is so much better and not as pop-sounding.

There's a lot of light at the end of the tunnel in Lateralus. That's a fantastic album for applications: passionate, introspective.

As for me, I've been listening to a lot of TV on the Radio, Mars Volta and Cursive so far in the application cycle.

Edit: Ah, and some good ol' Tom Waits :thumbup:

It's called "I had a total hip replacement and then someone shoved a coke bottle up my ass."

...and for such an active patient (I mean, coke bottle in colon? must be active), they should have considered hip resurfacing as a bone-conserving alternative.

Not to sound generic, but I really do listen to anything: 50 Cent, to Tom Jones, to Dokken, to the Stones

Rocky soundtracks if I really need to get fired up.

Gregorian Chant if I really need to think and concentrate.

Zero 7 with Jose Gonzalez? I like his stuff, but I'm not as familiar with Zero 7.

Yeah he's in the new zero 7 album. The whole album is really good though. I just got Jose's Australian EP album, pretty sweet. Still no veneer though.

I'll I've been able to hear of him so far has been off of his Veneer album, which seems to be mostly covers? Either way, he does a good job with them.

Random song for your enjoyment:
"Dorothy Dreams of Tornadoes" by Cursive (from their upcoming album)

haha actually no. i have no idea who the girl in my avatar is. just some random hot asian girl that was posted on another forum i frequent. but you are correct, utada hikaru is hot (as depicted here: http://traducziqueff.free.fr/photo/utada_hikaru_4.jpg)

and for the one song you know, i'm gonna have to guess either "first love" or "hikari/the opening track to kingdom hearts."

No yeah, I think it's quite positive or at least very calming. I find Disposition or Reflection are awesome essay songs. :thumbup:

Are there any rules against posting music in these forums? Obviously a lot of music review blogs do it...

Personally,

I don't listen to anything while actually writing the essays, but I do have a preparation ritual, in which I listen to inspirational pieces such as Liquid Tension Experiment's "State of Grace," Jason Becker's "Air," or Nobuo Uematsu's (FF7 composer) "Fighting." I'm usually ready to go after that.

Liquid Tension Experiment gets a little too... free-form for my tastes. I love Dream Theater, though.

As for the remainder of your preparation ritual, I don't know those songs.

The song I posted last night on the previous page of this thread has survived so far... I just wasn't sure if it was kosher.

I've found "Asleep in the Back" and "Cast of Thousands" by Elbow to be my essay writing music of choice... good chill music since whenever I have go home, the internet is on the fuzz... I've been working off WiFi at the bar at the local Buffalo Wild Wings.

(dont have Elbow's new album though.

I'd like to hear more from them. What little I've heard has been good, but it's been via my LaunchCast radio, so I can't just pull it up whenever I get the urge.

I listened to Muse albums - Showbiz, Origin of Symmetry, Absolution - when filling out my secondaries. I got multiple acceptances. You should listen to Muse, too.

I've been kind of disappointed with their new album. I don't really think their previous material was anything approaching genius, mind you, but it was enjoyable--this new stuff is kind of boring.

yeah, i burned my copies from the stash at the campus radio station. I havent seen any publicity for the new album here in the US. (though XFM, a british radio station, was promoting thier new single pretty heavily a few months ago. www.xfm.co.uk )

It wasn't any more, or any less necessary than the rest of this thread. It's all music commentary.

Mr. McDuck

Queen, Jimmy Buffett, The Da Vinci Code soundtrack :laugh: , or Aerosmith.
