    I pretend music helps me study but then I just float around my music library wasting hours at a time

    Not specifically when studying, but I do love classical music. xD I put my iTunes on shuffle all the time, so I probably get some when studying.

    I've listened to Brandenburg Concertos 2 and 3, Scarlatti's K.491, his Sonata in D, Beethoven's Presto alla tedesca, and some others...

    Scarlatti's variation on his pieces tends to help me think over a concept and look at it in a new light =)

    Yep, when revision time comes round I always have Mozart on my Ipod, sometimes a bit of Verdi. Helps me focus a bit.

    I have my cheese playlist blasting out whilst I write my essays. It can get a bit distracting, but it's good fun

    As many of you probably know 'gay' is now a common substitution for 'crap', so in terms of listening to classical music when studying you might agree.

    Sometimes I find it difficult to concentrate when listening to music, because I get carried away with the music itself! If I have a piece on repeat though, it sometimes helps me to study, because I spend the first listen actually listening to the song, then it's just a nice background. I particularly like listening to Brahms' fourth symphony when revising...Mozart's Clarinet Concerto in A is a good'un too, nice and mellow.

    What people are saying is that there should be more than 2 options, you condescending nipple.

    No because the classical music I know is all quite crashy and exciting, but distracting. I listen to tinkly stuff like the Amelie soundtrack, and Kate Bush's album Aerial which is mostly piano and birdsong, with little bits of Rolf Harris

    I listen to film soundtracks when studying like Last of the Mohicans, or the BSG soiundtracks. Quiet in the background is good for helping me..although Last of the Mohicans makes me wanna run around on mountain tops scalping people.
