I always have the tv going. But if I had to listen to music while scrapping it'd be Country music. But being Christmas time i'd be listening to the classic Christmas songs from my time life christmas cds.
All depends on my mood, what I'm working on, and what's readily available. I have very eclectic taste although it tends to be "stuck in the 80's". Anything from Poison to Kenny G. I often listen to movie soundtracks (Little Mermaid, Top Gun, Grease), musicals, Bon Jovi, Billy Joel. I listen to what I call "spa music" (that relaxing instrumental music they play, like waves crashing, birds chirping, etc.), I have several music CD's in foreign languages and if I'm in the mood for live radio I listen to current country music. And this time of year I listen to xmas music.
I listen to my sirius "The Blend" is my favorite channel. It plays everything from Elton John and Madonna to Colbie Callait and Daughtry. My favorite bands right now are the Plain White T's, Fray, Script, and Jason Mraz. It really mixes the music well from late 70's to today--
Until very recently I didn't listen to anything at all (setting up my MP3 player to run through anything but headphones was a pain), but a couple weeks ago I got my first iPod ever, and that has its own built-in speaker. So I've been listening to the Oldies, Classic Rock, and 90s Alternative stations on Pandora the last few weeks while crafting and sewing and wrapping gifts (rather than my own music collection, which I use a lot at work, where I have no wi-fi connection, and Pandora keeps me from getting sick of my own collection after hearing it during the day).
ll depends on my mood, what I'm working on, and what's readily available. I have very eclectic taste....
same here, the scrappin' 'standards' would be Michael Buble, and soundtracks, like Remember the Titans or Love Actually.
When in the mood for something upbeat, Fergie and Christina (still think her Stripped is one of the best cd's ever).
Also listen to a lot of Contemporary Christian, esp Jeremy Camp, ...and Country, The Band Perry...and this year for Christmas will pulled out Casting Crowns and Lady Antebellum.
I like to scrap with the tv on. I normally put on my DVRd Supernatural episodes...I think I know they by heart by now but love to watch them!!! I can put on anything that I have seen before, otherwise I watch the show or movie and don't scrap.
And I watch Stand-up comedy for the same reason...you don't have to actually watch it to enjoy it!
I tried watching movies while scrapping and Iwould catch myself either missing parts of the movie and getting confused, or neglecting my scrapping!
I always have something going- if my DGD isn't here, I usually watch (listen) to the ID channel- all true crime shows- don't know why, I'm really not a morbid person.
Music- I mostly put my Iphone on the docking station and I have a wide varity of music there.
Motown,Michael Buble, Kid Rock, Guns & Roses, Randy Travis, Alan Jackson, Smashmouth, Maroon5, They Fray, O.A.R, LMFAO,Usher, Josh Grobin, Dolly Parton, Bette Midler, Eminem, I don't listen to classical or techno , but maybe everything inbetween!!
I'm a music fiend when it comes to scrapping. Must. Have. My. Tunes! I listen to everything from opera (Pavarotti) to the Gaithers to U2 to modern country music. Anything that catches my ear on that particular day. I listen through my iPod or through iTunes on my computer - I can see the song titles better that way than on the iPod. I just singsingsing and scrapscrapscrap away!
Well, I haven't been able to watch anything other than YouTube tutorials since I recently got my Cameo but now that's about to change. I got an 24" LED TV on Black Friday so I'm going to be able to watch my shows that I have on DVR while I'm scrapping. As per Music, I set my iPod to Shuffle and whatever comes on that's it. Whether is Michael Bublé Christmas song to My humps by Black Eyed Peas. Don't laugh, I just adapt very well depending on the circumstances...lol!!
Good thread!! My radio is usually set to a local country station, because country is SOOOO easy to sing along to! I love Christmas music, whenever!! I loved my XM radio, before I crashed my car with XM/Sirius radio in it. When I had wifi in the DR/scraproom, I would play Pandora on my Kindle. I love all kinds of rock from the 80's, head-banging, hair bands like Def Leppard n Van Halen n Guns n Roses, then 80's n 90's dance music, Stevie B. n TKA, Madonna... I LOVE to listen to Spanish guitar music...think Antonio Banderas in Desperado...whoa!! So rhythmic, sensual and emotional! Try a listen on pandora!! and prob one of my faves right now is Pitbull...love the beats!!! One of my all time FAVORITE artists is, drumroll please...Barry Manilow!! God, he's great! And who doesn't know the words to Copa Cabana? All that having been said, I really have to watch that i am scrapping, and not singing n dancing!!
