    Have you people got a certain playlist, maybe an album, something you'll listen to (at a low volume, obv) whilst revising?

    Please post your suggestions here.

    (I don't listen to music during revision, but am considering it as I get really bored half an hour or so, into it... :rolleyes:)

    Thanks.

    Stuff without words, so usually instrumental soundtracks. They've got things like the Time Traveller's Wife and the Holiday soundtracks on Spotify - the Holiday especially is lovely; it's composed mostly by Hans Zimmer so it's pretty good stuff
    Disney soundtracks (again, the stuff without words else it's too catchy and I start singing :p:) are are good and also on Spotify

    Classical music. It's usually calming and has no words to distract you

    I always listen to instrumental tracks, no words means your brain isn't focusing on interpreting them so it's less distracting.

    Usually soundtracks of movies :yep:

    Oh and I always listen to this whilst doing maths:



    If you read the comments on youtube, so many people have said they listen to this whilst studying too. For me it just has an effect where I start to think faster and get in a rhythm for maths.

    I'm such a nerd :getmecoat:

    Music with no words i always find is best.

    I tend to enjoy anything by Ludovico Einaudi.

    You may recognise this from This Is England, a personal favourite.

    I always listen to dnb or dubstep (preferably without words) when I revise, or kpop/jpop because I don't understand the words anyway

    Classical compositions, I just stick on grooveshark and put on "Best of Beethoven", and similar compilations of Mozart, Bach, whatever. It helps block everything else out, a bit relaxing, and (mostly) no singing so you don't get distracted by lyrics (which you'd want if you're like me and end up just singing along to the song instead of studying)
