    A bunch of different stuff, usually if its a serious fic (which is almost always) then I'd be listening to the SW soundtracks, usually ESB.

    Sometimes I like to listen to other stuff like the Moulin Rouge soundtrack or Alicia Keys or Linkin Park, but it's pretty hard for me to write with anything that has words in it since I always end up singing along with the band :p

    Yeah, I listen to whatever my sister is listening to. She usually has the radio *sigh*

    Sometimes I listen to the radio.

    On obi-torture, I listen to Metallica

    On mush, I listen to Dido and Milla.

    On serious, I listen to Mathcbox 20 or Creed usually.

    Other than that....sometimes I listen to Simon and Garfunkel!

    I'm a total music nut and therefore have mood music for all things. For fanfic writing, I listen to a lot of Sibelius. He exudes a calming influence, but has enough quirky twists to keep my mind at .5 past lightspeed.

    I listen to music while I'm doing ANYTHING. What I listen to depends on my mood. :D

    I have some weird things for this:

    Action scenes: "Power" from Outlaw Star. It just really sets a perfect background. And then the Closing theme from Gundam's Endless Waltz.

    Mush: Usually some Japanese stuff (keeps my attention off the words, haha), and Frank Sinatra. Or soundtrack stuff (Pearl Harbor, Saving Private Ryan, Glory [uh yes, I like war movies])

    Ideas: I dunno, I like REM, the Beatles, Glenn Miller, Rod Stewart...a lot of weird stuff.

    But you'll never hear me listening to current stuff. Who's N'sync? Who are the Backstreet Boys? Britney Spears? Huh?

    I listen to whatever CD I find first. Usually one of the following:

    Tool
    Linkin Park
    System of a Down
    Limp Bizkit
    Staind
    Metallica
    Gorillaz
    Pachelbel
    Mozart
    Beethoven
    Tchaikovsky
    Haydn


    I know, I listen to an odd combination of music.

    Me too! Ha ha, I even named one of my characters after Paul Simon, because 'Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme' was playing on my record player at the time. :)

    Heehee...myself, I find that sometimes I start typing the words to bridge over troubled waters when it's playing and I have to stop typing and wait for the song to be over! Heehee...
