    I have to have music on to be able to focus on my studies and on my homework. Otherwise my mind will wander and I won't get anything done. It doesn't matter what kind of music it is, as long as I like it. It can be hardcore, or pretty soft.

    I listen to music too. Otherwise I hear other noises that might distract me or if it's late, then the complete silence is weird and just ripe to be filled with totally irrelevant thoughts.

    I listen to music a lot..and I study/work a lot..and I usually do both at the same time
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    I usually turn music and the tv on... not especially loud, though. If I can discern any words I can get distracted... by having both on it's just a bunch of noise, which i like. If it's silent while i'm working on homework i either get distracted or have short moments of really intense focus. What i dislike about that sort of focus is that when i finish, i feel like i just woke up and am surprised to see what time it is or have forgotten where i am (if it's outside of my home). Either way I'm frazzled and have to take a few minutes to figure out what i had been doing for the last few hours.

    With work, I prefer lots and lots of noise, but not voices (again). Really fast, loud, instrumental music is the best and relieves most of my anxiety. When I used to play piano frequently, I would try to play the song as fast as possible.. obviously ruining the composer's intent, but I found it to be quite soothing... that is, until I couldn't keep up with how fast I wanted to play and threw the sheet music everywhere.

    Classical music, preferably Bach. Listening to rock while reading can distract me.

    I prefer working in silence, because it distracts me--I'd rather focus on the music than whatever it is I'm reading/working on.

    I listen to this while writing, but I prefer to study and read in silence.

    I need music, but it can't be anything with intricate vocal runs or high-paced beats because that distracts me. I either like soothing sounds of a piano to help me focus or something smooth like Jhene Aiko's Souled Out album.

    If I'm in silence I find it harder to focus.
