I found this article and peaked my curiosity.
What's your go-to music while you work?
Do you use a streaming service?
What Do Engineers Listen to While They Work? | Design News
Yep. Been a fan since their first album when I was in high school. Just listen to "Dance of Eternity" and mind blown.
Huge Billy Connolly fan (big fan of comedy in general.)
... but then looks aren't everything.
I'd say the same thing about Porcupine Tree. I'd never heard of them until Dark Matter showed up on my iHeart radio Pink Floyd playlist. Damn good stuff. I'm listening now
... and on that note, bring on Weird Al - it's time for "All about the Pentiums" . . .
Spotify because I'ma control freak about what I listen when I work. I can't focus when new music I haven't heard comes on as I'm then listening and not working.
At the moment, Eric Clapton (EC).
Recently, to name a few:
Explosions in the Sky
Alice in Chains
De La Soul
Band of Horses
Pandora mostly, sometimes 93X out of the Twin Cities. Classic rock to heavy metal, punk, thrash, classical and eighties pop. Every once in a while I throw the comedy mix in on Pandora, Robin Williams, Christopher Titus, George Carlin, Fluffy etc. I find that the more variety in the music/ listening the more productive I am.
If you like PT, try Steven Wilson's solo stuff. Wilson basically WAS Porcupine Tree. I recommend the album The Raven That Refused to Sing.
He's a genius...
Thanks, I'll check that
Have you tried Neal Morse? He was the leader of Spock's Beard until he went solo. He left to do his own Christian based music.
It's awesome and Mike Portnoy has played on all the albums.
I recommend the albums One and Similitude of a Dream (current one)
EDIT: Also try Transatlantic. Morse and Portnoy plus a couple other modern prog superstars. Try SMPT:e
My profile pic, PJ, a couple different podcasts (A Mediocre Time and all of their off shoots), stream ESPN radio, Spotify, and Apple music
I would listen to Celtic Folk and/or Celtic Rock if there were some stations available. I have found an app that allows listening to Irish Radio stations.
You need to start to listen in foreign language:)
Volbeat - lola montez (now on deezer)
I don't listen often, but when I do its country.
I forgot to mention that I use Google Music for my streaming service.

Or add co-worker mumbling numbers as he reads them. Or he has to say a number to put it in a drawing.
I may soon start wearing headphones. To listen to the Sounds of Silence.
Disturbed - The Sound Of Silence [Official Music Video] - YouTube
More than any other bands, I probably listen to Pink Floyd and Boston the most.
But then you do know that if it doesn't bang your head it really isn't music.
Not much Western left in what passes for Country these days. (I know I sound like an old fart. There's a good reason for that.)
We can still listen to Jerry Jeff Walker when we want to. But I agree, today's CW was rock when we were kids.
