      This was posted once before but I think music along with scrolling evolves.
      I like most styles when I am scrolling, classical is one of my favorites.
      Magpie..I can live with some opera, but I prefer not to listen to sopranos. or castratos.

      Funny how the mood of the music can affect the mood of scrolling.

          Marsha; That radio station 1150 from Hamilton, I think has a strong signal. When we were up in Erie & Conneaut Pa I could get it in at night. Do they play oldies all the time? Would they have a program times on the internet?
          Nice to hear from you and your love of the oldies!

            Lonepine,
            Yes they play oldies all the time, usually nothing more recent then the late
            70's very little 80's. I'm sure they have a schedule on the internet. I never change the radio station so it's always on. I listen to Elvis hour at 8:00 AM. EST. and breakfast with the Beattles follows right after. It's my favorite 2hours of the week and lord help anybody who disturbs me.

              Country /Western and Bluegrass for me with an occassioal healthy helping of some 50's and 60's rock but none of the "acid" type.
              If a song requires more than 6 chords on the guitar or if I can't understand the words, then I am not interested in it.

                I usually only play CDs when I'm doing other things in the shop - the noise of my saw drowns the music. Nevertheless, there's three CDs that get regular use: Abba Gold, The Best Of David Bowie 1969-1974, and The Best Of The Seekers.

                  That sounds like a Harry Potter CD

                    well once again, I am the odd apple on the tree.My CD of choice used to be rockin instrumentals ( like 'walk, dont run' ...'green onions'...'pipeline' ) but for the last couple years, hard rock! Like Rob Zombie, Metallica, stuff like that, its gets my juices flowing and pumps me up! The only country I ever listen to is Toby Keith, and some David Alan Coe. Dale

                      I prefer classic rock when I'm working in the garage/shop on my XM radio. The channel I have it on plays a wide variety of artists from the 70's, 80's, and a little bit of the 90's for some of the more popular bands. Every so often my wife will change it to her mix channel, which is alright when they aren't playing a string of hop-hop stuff. I like to turn up the volume just high enough to hear it over my saw so it doesn't become too much of a distraction, but sometimes the music just gets to me and I have to turn off my saw for a few minutes.

                        for me I love it all. it depends what i am working on. sometimes just the sounds of nature is the best. but if i am working on indion things like the photos at the bottom , i put on a cd that is indion flute music, or just natuer tunes. like bird calls or water falls. some times if i have a mood going on, and feel agressive, i love the oldies too. like moody blues or led zipplion. but mostly i love western and blue grass too. I don't like the oppera. stuff. but love the classicale music. beeing from a music background. and playing many instraments myself. i love to try to sort out all the instraments. it does inspier me to be creative. like betovane or jecousky, lol like i can spell those. But my most favorite is Pattcie Kline, and Jimmy Reeves. and not to forget my most favorit of all. Marty robbins. but then there is other sounds in my shop, like my hubby milling wood on the plainer. WOW is that loud. lol. and then all i can do is put my ear muffs on, and try to focuse on the saw blade going up and down. then I wish i could just here the little chitter chatter of the blade cutting through the wood. LOL. belive it or not, that is music to my ears. so relaxing, and miss it when i can't here it. you know what i meen Sharon. bet you miss that too. love ya my friend. your friend Evie

                          this is an easy one for me, being a "cowboy" as my name implies I only listen to country and western, while scrolling it is usally something along the lines of Toby Keith, Jason Boland, or Chris LeDoux, but being a musician locally I also listen a a few cds of my own band, but normally I find if I do that I am listening for mistakes instead of just letting the music blend in the background so I can enjoy scrolling.

                            Classic rock works for me!
                            Sometimes I'll listen to Classical in the house or car.
                            No hip-hop or rap is allowed in my house and country music is too depressing.
                            What happens when you play a country record backwards?
                            You get your job back,
                            you get your dog back,
                            you get your spouse back and
                            you quit drinking!

                              Music in the shop.... hmmm, thats easy. Anything I can dance/sway to while sawing. I might have to cut on the line, but that doesn't mean I need to be still while I do it! So, almost anything goes ... I have some limits.... no rap, blues, jazz or gospel.
