Music and Writing

What kind of music do you listen to while you write? Do you make specific playlists? Do you only listen to instrumental music? What's everyone's preference?

Just my usual playlists which are mostly classic rock and ballads.

Although if I'm trying to concentrate and something deep like a Leonard Cohen song comes up, I'll often skip past that track so that my brain doesn't get distracted by the lyrics.

Silence is my usual choice, but I have several folk music lists on Pandora that I'll listen to. Classical music is another choice.

Any kind of noise distracts me when writing. I enjoy listening to music (classical/easy listening) but not when I'm working.

I have several Pandora stations. Once into the fingers banging away, I don't even realize it's there.

What I usually do is make playlists that inspire me for characters or scenes, etc., and then I put those on my phone or iPod and listen to them while I'm driving(which I do a lot).

I get my best dialogue, plotting, and general thinking done while I'm in the car. It's almost like a meditation for me. Anyone else do this?

Classical or soundscapes, and the serenity that comes with it. Now a days, it's a struggle just to get silence (after said responsibilities of wife and mother. Gotta' love it though!).
