My Music to Knit By ranges from Buena Vista Social Club to the soundtrack of "Oh, Brother Where Art Thou" to Talking Heads to David Bowie's "Heathen" to Jill Scott, Erykah Badu, India.Aire to Nine Inch Nails to Kathleen Battle/Branford Marsallis' "Baroque Duet" to the Beatles to Moby to Brasilian music to Jurassic Five to Leftover Salmon to Moorcheeba to Diggable Planets to...Well, you get the picture.
I guess you could say that have kind of eclectic tastes in music.
I tend to knit to the same type of music I'll put on while doing web design.
The only problem is when something really good comes on and it goes from head bobbing to finishing that row so I can get up and get my groove on!

How do.
Gwen, when I read you "Kathleen Battle" choice, I had to respond: she was two years ahead of me in school (McKinley Junior High & Portsmouth High School - both in Portsmouth, Ohio). She was Kathy Battle in those days. When I 1st heard her sing at a McKinley Junior High program, I was in the 7th grade & she blew my socks off w/her voice - it was so beautiful to me that I could have cried. Great choice!
To everyone else, wow - you all have wonderfully varied taste - I love what I am learning from this topic!

I have to agree with Letti, I listen to reggae while I knit. We have digital cable, and it came with a selection of music channels-- there's all different themes, so I try to pick a different one every so often. But the reggae channel has become my personal favorite, at least for now. When it starts getting cold (I live in Bethlehem, PA) I like to listen to "darker" music (moody alternative stuff), techno, or celtic music (we have a huge celtic festival here every fall that gets me in the mood for a few weeks). But there's just something so happy and relaxing about listening to reggae and knitting! Right now, it's my favorite way to unwind after a long day at work.

When I do listen to music while I'm knitting, I listen to Contemporary
Christen music. I find it relaxing & inspiring.

Classical music is my first love, so I automatically turn to that whatever I am doing. After reading the wonderful, varied responses, I am convinced I need to perk up my music now and then with other types. Letti, you have some great ideas for me in the music you use. I like almost all music, especially (in addition to classical) blues and jazz, Celtic harp, and even, now and then, Indian (as in Native American) pipes.

I enjoy listening to classical, inspirational, or New Age (like George Winston) when I am in a "relax" mode. When I am trying to complete an item, or when the game is on, I like to listen to baseball.

"What are your soundtrack preferences?"

That's an interesting question. I just leave the TV going. I prefer movies I've already seen a lot (Ghostbusters and other light-hearted types).

Thanks for asking that question. Hope it's OK that I just butt in and answer.
