    The title sums it up really. I listen to classical and instrumental versions of lots of different genres so I don't sing along and get distracted but I'm interested to hear what others listen to and why.

    The only music I can work to is quiet classical or ambient music. I can't concentrate with anything more, but to be honest I mostly revise without music.

    Any recommendations? I mostly listen to The Cinematic Orchestra, Gershwin, Mahler, Brahms, Bach etc

    I can't revise with music playing in the background even if it's classical...it's very distracting.

    However much I love the skyrim theme tune can it not be a bit dramatic at times?

    It's not the Skyrim theme tune It's the quiet ambient wind and nature sound effects you get when exploring the world minus the music. Listen to it, it's wonderful.

    I'm working on a playlist now. I've tried classical in the past, but I'm way too picky with exactly what I listen to. I'm generally a huge fan of opera/instrumentals for revision because it's the only thing that keeps my mind occupied and because there's no singing I don't get distracted. (I know there's singing in opera but I don't understand wtf they're saying so it still works. :borat:) Also, according to Reddit video game music seems to be the best for concentration so I'm on the search for more of that.

    Aaannyway, so far I have:
