Although I like listening to music while I work, I spend a lot of time reading blogs for my Trends site which means I rarely do. I can’t concentrate on reading while listening to lyrics. So I’ve started looking around for slow tempo “background” music that doesn’t interfere, that doesn’t distract me so much with words.
Eingya by Helios is a great example, recommended by my friend Ario. Soft and slow burning. But I’ve found an alternative that may work even better, which is this set of Rockabye Baby! Lullaby records. Songs by Metallica, Nine Inch Nails, Pink Floyd, Radiohead and others, lyric free and rendered lullaby lite. You’ll barely notice they’re there, but find yourself humming them hours later. Not sure how much Maddie cares for her Coldplay version yet, but I like it.
