ive just discovered that listening to music while writing is really helpful. it has to be a "mood setter" though. like im writing a long-ass paper on homosexual persecution by nazi's..so i need something deep, orchestra-filled, and powerful. Arcade fire radio on pandora is perfect. i tried Schindlers list score radio, but that was too depressing and it was curbing my opinion in my paper.

does anyone else do this

I listen to music while doing all homework except reading. The kind of music isn't especially important, except that, ever since my junior year of high school, Trainwreck by Boys Night Out has been my go-to paper writing album.

I almost always have Explosions In The Sky in the background while studying these past two years. However, now whenever I listen to them outside of studying...it reminds me of homework!It's funny/sad because EITS has most of my top played songs on my iPod.

If I'm working on a project or something that doesn't need deep concentration I'll usually just put my Itunes on shuffle.

I do this for most things, but not my science classes. When reading books/stories/writing papers a little post-rock goes a long way.

I physically can't do it - I always end up typing or thinking of the lyrics as opposed to focusing.

I would always listen to Frank Ticheli and Aaron Copland.

I have to write a paper right now.

I do it in silence. Music is too distracting for me.

I always listen to music when doing homework. It helps me get it done, but the only time I don't listen to it is when I'm reading or studying.
