What do songs do you listen to while reading
« on: February 09, 2009, 12:28 AM »
An interesting thought hit my mind the other day while reading book. "Wow, this would be kick ass with music!".
And so I started listening to different songs while reading it.
 Anyone have any prefrences? You can get mine here::

That's strange because I can't possibly concentrate on reading if I'm listening to something. And while I'm reading, I block out everything. Sometimes I didn't even hear somebody talking to me. I don't know how you can manage to do both things.  ;)

like Yin03 any mellow song will do but if one of the songs in my playlist is a fave of
mine I stopped reading and will start singing instead...  but if I really like the book
I'm reading I tend to avoid listening to music and concentrated on that book....

Reading and listening to music both indulgences assuage our senses.Although they can be done simultaneously depending upon about the seriousness of the book and it's subject.If you are reading for pleasure, it is better you relish the content thoroughly by delving into the subject matter and if it is for gaining knowledge,you should not mind a soothing music playing in the background.All reactions and comments on this thought are welcome.

This is interesting. I always listen to music while reading. i tend to relate the music with the story and i adore it. Can tell you that i find reading in silence boring and gets me sleepy.

I usualy listen to banda like band (mexican band)

 i try to avoid songs that have a different meanings and not co-related to what im reading cause i just messes and mixes different stories and meanings. so i prefer instrumental stuff/classics....if there are no words to the piece then you can concentrate more with what your reading and at the same time the sound can make a background to your imagination and soothe you too...

If I'm revising then I have to listen to instrumental.
- Yiruma
- Ludovico Einaudi
- Ryuichi Sakamoto

It helps me to concentrate when reading my notes.

while reading any school work... i tend to listen to songs that make sure i stay awake like pop, r&b, rock,etc...

if reading for leisure... any type of songs other than classic... but i prefer korean songs^^

I usually listen to Yiruma, and Enya.It soothes me.
And true that, songs with no lyrics helps the concentration while reading. Loud music just confuses you.
