Every monday I will be driving up to college about an hour away from where I live. I will be waiting outside the class room til my girlfriend gets out. So while I wait I'm reading a Help Desk Support book for my online class. I keep getting distracted by everyone outside. I got an IPOD Nano for Christmas and I want to listen to some music. What do you think is good reading music?

I do love metal music but it definately isn't something I can listen to while reading. Maybe I'm just not a true metal fan.

I also think anything without lyrics is good for reading (including classical). Personally, I like Symphonic Rock/New Age (Yanni), eccept that I get too obsessed with the music that I start whistling instead of reading...that's just me, though.

Also, songs with lyrics in a language you don't understand works (for me). In that respect, I will listen to metal/hardcore industrial while reading.

I have Mutter and Reise, Reise. I got them both from a friend, but Media Play sold them (before they closed). I don't know if the company went bankrupt, or if it was just the store near me...

George Gershwin Rhapsody in Blue Gershwin/Paul Whiteman Orchestra/Shikret


An awesome choice, George Gershwin raised the bar on contemporary composition with this work. A true classic!

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
