    What music do you people like listening to whilst revising?

    Personally, I'm all for acoustic versions of songs such as 'Of Monsters and Men - Little Talks' and 'Summertime Sadness'.

    I like a lot of Yann Tiersen - particularly his soundtrack for 'Goodbye Lenin!'
    Aaaand...when I'm revising Russian history...I listen to Dvorak...and for German history, Bruch

    I can't listen to music whilst I'm revising as I get distracted and find myself singing along to the song rather than actually memorising the info... But check out the channel 'Majestic Casual' on YouTube. I just stick on one of their playlists when I'm getting ready to go out and it's so relaxing.

    I have a Spotify playlist I put on sometimes to make notes or make flashcards which has things like arctic monkeys, Ed Sheeran, the xx, the courteeners and taylor swift, just a proper mix really but usually I find music doesn't even work for me and i just get distracted when its on! So i just put the TV on instead and i have that playing in the background with me half listening to it, but if I'm doing questions or on brains cape (the flashcard website) then I have to be in silence or i can't concentrate to answer the questions!

    Haha, I suppose we could assign a musician to each subject!

    It depends what type of revision I'm doing (if that even makes sense...)
    But it's usually classical music or songs which aren't too upbeat. However, I've got to change the classical music every so often because I'll 'sing' to it when I know it - which then distracts me...
    Failing that, movie soundtracks...
