I personally can't. I'd get way too distracted if I did. Even when I have the TV on just for background noise it's still really distracting for some reason but I do it anyway and I'll finish what should have only taken about 30 minutes to an hour in about 3 hours instead lol.
Hi, this is a good question. I listen to Pandora online; Kenny G (instrumental), and John Tesh (instrumental). This way I can proof read and edit my article without words of songs interrupting me. Although sometimes I listen to other music while writing hubs but I make sure the volume is really low.
I've found that contemporary jazz works best for me. If the songs gets too distracting, I turn the volume down a little. When I feel like I really need to reset, I sit in a quiet room without any music and write.
I don't because my husband always has the food network on. but if I did I would listen to instrumental music...it soothes me.
No...never.....noise is an interruption in my creative thinker.
Sometimes I listen to music but not on writing so as to get full concentration on the work.

What kind of music do you listen to while writing?Do you write better to a face paced tempo, or a slow one? Can you tell us why?Is there a particular singer or group that you listen to while writing? I tend to do a lot of writing to Barry Manilow. Yes, I said Barry Manilow.

Do you listen to music while you write?I am writing a hub right now and am in the midst of deciding whether to listen to music or not. I seem very concentrated in the silence but find myself getting bored. Would music be too much of a distraction? If you do, what sort of music is it?
