What are you guys listening to?

Thought I'd just add my €0.07

Though music tends to distract me  while I am working or thinking, I love anything Palestrina as it is like a cool mountain stream trickling through my thoughts. Bach is great as well, especially his fugues.


Other music I can pleasantly bear while working is the requiem of Mozart, especially the Kyrie:


When I want music to scream for me when it would be socially awkward if I did it myself, I have all kinds of music. This is an nice example:


I regularly put this on because of the brilliant guitarplay. This is what virtuosity looks like to me. Jeff Healey's version pushes the same buttons.


Especially when cycling, I like to put on a selection of the better EDM to get the energy flowing (NB: I use bone conducting headphones, I see people biking with full on head phones, which seems incredibly dangerous to me):


I have a soft spot for this one because of its completely over the top caricatured funkyness:


Finally, I am responsible for quite a portion of the 4.5 M views on this one. Love it.

Posted a Justin Bieber song did you?

If I did I would most certainly not delete it... Yummy, yummy, yummy  🙄

Check out those moves! Especially when he grabs his package.

That's really cool how they restored the footage!  Was always a fan of INXS.

S! Same for me... I was lucky at an early age to see most of the band starting at that time (INXS, U2, The Cure and many more bands) at McGill University... in a small concert hall that around 200 persons could see the concert!

Those were the best day of my life!

If anybody wants some music that has less propensity to distract while on their June 29th Richtoffen practice sorties

I would recommend the following, both for being pretty low-activity for the mind and nice and smooth. :)😎

Joe Pass - Meditation - Solo Jazz Guitar:

Masayoshi Takanata (Lead Writer for Japanese Jazz super-group "Cassiopea") - The Rainbow Goblins - Radio Play, Orchestral/Fusion funk:

This one's really esoteric and has lots of cheesy sounding 1980's Synths and stuff so you might want to stay away from it, I was turned off by it personally at first and had to find which portions of which songs actually sounded real nice to me. Mostly the guitar tones - which are often used to make weather effects or simulate singing/violin melodies are really spectacular.
