    I preferably listen to Bach - Pachelbel's Canon in D major - absolutely brilliant!

    I like to listen to a lot of rock and metal type music, currently I'm listening to Metallica - The Four Horseman, good song.

    Er... Pachelbel's Canon was written by Johann Pachelbel, not by Bach. Of course you could listen to Bach and Pachelbel's Canon, but I wouldn't recommend doing that simultaneously.

    mostly instrumental stuff for me. I feel lyrics tend to disturb my focus slightly. now it's mike oldfield's tubular bells. the caveman bit is about to begin, but it doesn't distract because I can't understand 'cave jive'.

    I've been listening to a lot of Rammstein and (hed)p.e. lately. I play slightly worse with music on for some reason.

    Currently the Missa Salisburgensis by Heinrich Biber. Don't try it if you have a nervous disposition!

    I LOVE listening to music while I play chess or poker, mostly instrumental stuff helps me to concentrate but I think as long as you are really familiar with the songs and aren't listening to something brand new they shouldn't distract you too much. I love to listen to any Sting album I find it very intellectually inspiring

    I personally listen to songs on a paticular playlist which I've copied here:

    Il Était Temps Virginie Pouchain
    Nightswimming R.E.M.
    Every Song Is A Cry For Love Brian Kennedy
    Don't Look Back In Anger Oasis
    She's Electric Oasis
    Everybody Hurts R.E.M.
    At My Most Beautiful R.E.M.
    Man on the Moon R.E.M.
    Let's Stay Together Tina Turner
    Wonderwall Oasis
    Find the River R.E.M.
    Losing My Religion R.E.M.
    Going Out Supergrass
    Champagne Supernova Oasis
    Monty Got a Raw Deal R.E.M.
    One For Sorrow Steps
    Cast No Shadow Oasis
    Through My Window Sandra Oxenryd
    Why Angels Cry Annette Artani
    Tina Turner - Simply The Best Various Artists
    Better Best Forgotten Steps

    A week of experimentation led me to this playlist - and wierdly it helps me concentrate (I must be mad!)
