    In my case, the music must change, if I am writing non-fiction that is academic in content I enjoy music that associates with what I listened to in Graduate School, that would be rock & roll, although mostly Neil Young or Celtic reel. If I am writing about my life, I prefer Loreena McKennett (Celtic/world folk), some upbeat country or Celtic/Irish reel music.
    If I ever write fiction, I think I will want it to change with the thesis of the fiction I am engaged in. If the theme or thesis is violent or upheaval-based I think I would benefit from "hard" rock & roll. If it is a romantic-based writing, perhaps Loreena McKennett type music...

    I am still enjoying alternative rock music but mostly grunge music like Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam and others. I also like Seether and Puddle of Mudd among many others. I really enjoy just about any music, from country to jazz and even classical. Some music I am not particularly fond of is rap, hip hop, pop, or thrash metal.

    If I'm really trying to concentrate because of all of the other activity and noise in the house, I listen to meditative music.  At intervals I tune into the music and pictures and it gets me back to what I'm writing, but particularly what I'm studying.

    If it's a term paper, I like to find an album I've never heard before and half listen, half focus on my ideas and write my paper.

    If it's personal like a letter or texting, I listen to the oldies but goodies.

    Franz Sshubert, Niccolo Paganini, and Thomas Tallis are my current addiction while I am writing.

    I would prefer love songs and rock music. It keeps me motivated and energetic.
