Ok...just curious...what music do you like to listen to when you are decorating? What gets you in the zone?

For me..its Pink's "Funhouse"

I always always listen to Jazz (well, that's all I listen to anyways). I find it calming.

Just a county girl at heart, the old classic country songs.

My MP3 player is hooked to my stereo. Playlist... Metallica, Coldplay, AC/DC, Nickelback, Poison, GnR, Black Eyed Peas, 3 Doors Down... Strange mix but I like music you can feel and makes you feel good. I can't work if music isn't playing and at a good volume also. We are music lovers here. Husband is in a band, that practices in a separate building on property. Music makes life fun.

Southern Culture on the Skids - "House of Bamboo" rocks!! If you're not dancing and singing into your spatula by the first verse you're not human. icon_lol.gif

I am such a nerd that I listen to NPR all day. For some reason I can get in the zone much better listening to talk radio. Lately I have been trying to switch things up and listen to music...just can't do it icon_smile.gif

Since I can see the TV from our kitchen, I start with Twilight, head into New Moon, and if I'm still busting my butt in the kitchen, I'll choose a musical or something classic. Last time it was Anna and the King (with Jodie Foster) and before that was Phantom of the Opera. icon_smile.gif

And if I just want music, it's Lady Gaga or the Wicked Soundtrack lately.

I have very open taste in movies and music. icon_lol.gif

Since I have a wide variety on it I never know what it will be. I have country, rock, rap, metal and a little techo.

I like to have my favorite local radio station on...they play a lot of different artists from Nickelback to Kris Allen to Adam Lambert to Pink to Kings of Leon to Lady Gaga--two of my favorite things, music and baking! I couldn't be happier!

I have to have a TV on, so I guess my answer would be "Law and Order" theme song!

i have it totally silent. i have two little girls that i'm with all day long and a hubby who is a talker. so i like it silent...it calms me icon_smile.gif although every once and a while my hubby will put together a playlist for me and i like that too. i just won't sit down to put one together for myself. i've also never bought a CD in my life, don't own an ipod or an mp3 player so it's not high on the list i guess. maybe it's b/c i can't carry a tune to save my life LOL

I like silence sometimes too.. BUT I couldnt imagine even 1 day without music..... I come from a very musical family though and just about every weekend we would all get together for BBQ's and live music...

I download books from the library onto my iphone and listen to those. If not that, then I listen to an oldies station.

I said before that I listen to James Taylor but I like the books on tape...although once classes start again in late August, I think I'll tape the lectures and listen to them....or tape my own notes.....either way, I can kill two birds with one stone, right?

DITTO! Only for me it's because of my work...baking and decorating are my "escapes" so most of the time - I like it quiet. Weekends DH leaves very early, so sometimes when he comes home, it'll be the first time I've spoken all day! (unless I'm swearing at my cakes).

But - if I'm in the mood for "company", I have my TV on and listen to Food Channel.
