What music to listen to when writing.

I've been trying to find some calm and relaxing music to listen to while I write. Anyone here have some recommendations?

For me, it absolutely must be something without lyrics...if im filling my own CPU with words, I can't have someone else singing words at me.

I also change music to fit the mood of what I'm writing. If its something action intensive, turn on the Doom sound track, or some action movie's score. If its something more romantic, smooth jazz...if its sexy, youd be surprised how often you can find porn music.

In general though, it'll be classical music, lofi musics of all kind, or video game soundtracks. Weirdly, the "Ecco the Dolphin" soundtrack in particular makes a regular appearance in my writing music selection. *shrug* no idea why, just love the music.

I usually don't listen to music while writing erotica. Most of the stuff I listen to would, for me at least, clash tonally with this sort of stuff. When writing other pieces of fiction or non-fiction I'll tend to pick something I think will encourage the right state of mind. In general, I listen to quite a bit of:
  • Dungeon Synth
  • Dark or Space Ambient
  • Movie/Video-Game OSTs
  • Classical
In no particular order of importance, along with a smattering from other genres like Metal and Classic Rock.
