    there's no good music while revising. it depends on who you are and if you can stand studying with all the noise. sometimes i don't mind having music in the background but other times, i'd prefer if there's no sound around me as i can get distracted by it.

    I can't do it without music. I NEED the music to revise/study.

    I warn you in advance, if rock/punk (especially older rock), isn't your proverbial cup of tea, don't waste your time by reading my post.


    My collection is extensive (2.7k songs). But here's a general lineup:

    ACDC
    Aerosmith
    Bon Jovi
    Chicago
    Chuck Berry
    The Darkness
    The Eagles
    Foo Fighters
    Guns n' Roses
    Hammerfall
    Iron Maiden
    Judas Priest
    Jethro Tull
    Kansas
    Led Zeppelin
    Lynyrd Skynyrd
    Meatloaf
    Nirvana
    Neil Young
    Opeth
    Pantera
    Queen
    R.E.M
    Radiohead
    The Red Hot Chilli Peppers
    The Scorpions
    Skid row
    Simon and Garfunkel
    Slash's Snakepit
    Ted Nugent
    U2
    Van Halen
    Whitesnake
    White Stripes
    Yellowcard
    Yngwie Malmsteen

    This is what I could name off the top of my head. Contact me if you want a full list of songs/bands etc.

    According to my mum, who's been on some sort of teacher-study course or something for the IB, you should listen to Baroque music (e.g. Bach), and listening to rock or watching tv whilst you study actually means you only remember half as much stuff.

    I can actually understand this, kind of. When I listen to music with words, I always end up singing along...

    Don't have specific music, just put the radio on low in the background. More varied that way - you don't know what's coming up, and if you don't like a song, you'll focus harder on your revision.

    Hmm. I try to listen to music with no lyrics, as like people have said I get distracted otherwise! I've got a few jazzy internet radio stations I listen to, a bit of light classical, ar a rasio tuned to something boring quietly so i can't hear it- like tight now it's on BBC Cambridgeshire, I can't hear what they're saying but know there's a noise.

    Other than that, i suppose it will all depend on your musical taste!

    Where's the Gershwin (Rhapsody in Blue, Piano Concerto in F (2 mov. esp), American in Paris)? Or the Schubert (he does some AMAZING piano duets)? Or Brahms (Everything of his is amazing). Dvorak's New world Symphony? Stravinky's Fire Bird? JS Bach's Brandenburg Concerto ?

    Hmpf. You obviously have NO taste :p:

    'Another Brick in The Wall' by Pink Floyd, lyrics are great

    We don’t need no education.
    We don’t need no thought control.
    No dark sarcasm in the classroom.
    Teacher, leave those kids alone.
    Hey, teacher, leave those kids alone!
    All in all it’s just another brick in the wall.
    All in all you’re just another brick in the wall.

    Thats usually what I end up doing, any type of sound lowers my concentration (as if it isnt low enough already).

    I'd say anime music helps... You can find some smooth soothing music in almost any single anime OST albums... Anyways, my favorite is still "never meant to belong" from BLEACH OST, definitely one of the best...

    I like Zane Lowe for revision, that guy has like the best music taste ever, and lets face it 7-9 is the only time I'd ever be doing any revision anyway, so its perfect! If for some reason I feel the urge to revise at any other time I'll usually either jsut stick radio 1 on anyway or have nice stuff like Led Zeppelin, Cream, the Strokes or the Kooks, stuff thats not too heavy or fast, but not so slow it sends you to sleep while revising.
