Hey guys,

Just thought I'd do the usual programming forum tradition and make a thread dedicated to the tunes you listen too while you are hacking the matrix. So what do you listen too? or are you one of those people code in silence? Or do you bust out the early 90's number #1s? For me personally, there's nothing better than
programming to ambient music, especially that from Brian Eno.

It changes over time. For a while, I listened to Smetena's Moldau more or less on repeat. In another era, it might have been Emerson, Lake, and Palmer. When I finally had sufficient resources to stream off the Internet while working, I spent a year or 3 tuned into New Age. And lately, I like Die neue Welle radio station from Karlsruhe, Germany which has a more varied playlist than most radio stations. Also it amuses me to hear their local commercials, and the news in German.

Mostly I prefer instrumental, since having words in my head while I'm running program text through at the same time can be confusing.  And a lot of times I have nothing at all now that I work in my own space and don't have to drown out the distractions of a lot of co-workers.

Yes I'm. I don't need music because I'm like

My band does ambient and Brian Eno is one of our influences.  If you would like, listen here:

I listen the same stuff that I listen to at home, which is quite varied, although I mostly listen to alternative metal. I work well when it's noisy.

The artists I listen to most lately are Mastodon, Perturbator and Russian Circles. A while ago I found an excellent space rock compilation which is extremely relaxing to listen to while working:

I like hear Shredding (precisely melodic) that can inspire me like the most reknown ones as Neil Zaza's compositions but also the not reknown too like Dhalif Ali's and Jack Thamarat's etc compositions/covers  
Or also Greek music (Rembetika) and Italian music too

I usually like electronic music, like techno, trance, or house.

I like music too much to not pay attention to it.

I only listen to rainymoodor some white noise (if the ambient is noisy. it generally is).

It looks like the [youtube] tag isn't working in this instance.  Here's the URL:

Some videos of Youtube seems to have two different URLs. Like BD's videos has two URLs. The one which we get by right click works with our Youtube tag for sure.

Edit: Note: BD when URL of a Youtube video taken from address bar doesn't work ( you can check that by playing the video in preview ), please take URL by right clicking on Youtube video then copy that video URL, see it works now
