What sort of music, if you do, do you listen to when you scrapbook. Is it a specific artist, song, band, album, genre, etc. Leave your answers below- I'm curious to know (It rhymes!! Haha)

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.

If I have tv or radio or any thing on it slows me way down and kills my concentration because I stop to listen or sing along. I have to have it very quiet when I scrap.

I put on music one day this week and accomplished nearly nothing. I tend to be distracted by music and really get into it and nothing else gets done.

Can do housework to music but not scrapping, writing, or anything else that requires me to think.

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 tend to listen to whatever I am currently into. Right now, it is Jack White, Adam Lambert, Ellie Goulding, fun. and Muse.



I will toss some others into the mix, but I like listening to an entire album.

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--

Right now it is Christmas all the way

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).

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.

Love "Supernatural"!!!
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.

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!

I almost (always) have to have either a movie or a youtube playlist going while I'm working. I tend to be a creature of habit & listen to a lot of the same songs or artist.

- Taylor Swift

- Kelly Clarkson

- Rascal Flatts

- Third Day

- Newsboys

- Jeremy Camp

- Britt Nicole

- Kari Jobe

- Christmas music (this month)

- 80's music mix

As for shows or movies...I tend to put on Hoarders, since I can just listen vs. actually watching. It's sort of crazy, but somehow it inspires me to focus & keep using up my supplies!

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!!

I'm glad I'm not the only one! I love that show but I can't sit and watch it; I develop a compulsive need to clean or organize while watching.

I either listen to iTunes (mostly country and classic rock) or have Fox News on for background noise. Fox News is on almost 24/7 at my house because I don't like silence!

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!!

If I have music while scrapping it is the collection I have downloaded on my PC. It is mainly 80's music and a couple of later ones that are great party songs. Still haven't figured out how I can dance, head-bang and scrap at the same time, but I am working on it.

One of my fav shows to scrap too. Especially the "yellow fever-eye of the tiger" episode. Have to stop and watch the video at the end though.

Most of the time it's silence, breaks my concentration too.

But today I I opened up i-tunes and was going to just play what is on my computer. Changed my mind and opened the radio section, never did that before. Clicked on a smooth jazz station, never listen to that before either!! IT's been on all day!!

I usually listen to podcasts of "The Paperclipping Roundtable" or others....or sometimes audiobooks on my iphone...

When I do have music on, it's pretty eclectic as well....Jason Mraz, Fun., Rascal Flatts, Bon Jovi, The Kings, Queen, Kelly Clarkson, Pink, Black Eyed Peas, Gotye, INXS......

I prefer silence, no matter what I'm doing (unless I'm actually sitting down to watch a TV show). I need to listen to my own thoughts, and find background noise (including music) very distracting.

I don't like quiet...it makes me uneasy. I usually scrapbook to movie scores/soundtracks (including Disney movies) or random songs by random artists that I have on my iPod's "Random" file.

I used to need quiet. But now I like having the radio on except when I'm concentrating on journalling.

I listen to Classic FM on the radio. I think I'm the first person to listen to classical music. That surprises me.

Thanks for the heads-up on this - all the scrapping podcasts I'd ever found before are video podcasts, which aren't suited to most of the situations I listen to podcasts in. Subscribing and downloading in iTunes as we speak! Hopefully I've got time to sync a few before leaving for work today.

Must.have.music ... or tv ... or conversation when I scrap

complete silence makes me uneasy when I'm scrapping

the type of music is whatever I would normally listen to ... pop, rock, showtunes (I'm a Broadway nut), oldies ... anything from Grateful Dead to The Who to Maroon 5 to Fun to Taylor Swift to the soundtrack of Les Miz

It all depends! Sometimes I will have a movie or TV show on my phone to watch at my desk. Other times an audio book on CD or my phone. Other times a genius play list from Itunes where I pick one song and then be surprised with what itunes has selected for me listen to based on the song I picked.

First of all, DH and I watch Supernatural too, who knew so many scrappers were fans!

I either have on a movie/ show that I've seen a million times (so I'm less distracted) or some music. Such as: Notting Hill, New In Town, Anchorman, Saved by the Bell, Glee, etc, etc.

I like all different kinds of music, so it varies, but often I like to listen to music relevant to what I'm scrapbooking. If I'm scrapbooking a concert I went to, I'll play that artist. If I'm scrapping a certain time of my life, I'll play music that makes me think of that time.

Often though my background noise is that of my DH's video games. :-) He has a man-cave, but sometimes we like to just be in the same room so he'll come out to the living room by me and play. Some of his games actually have somewhat soothing sounds, like Assassin's Creed, Fable, Minecraft.

I can't scrapbook unless there is music. I listen to everything except rap and country. Right now, I'm into nuevo flamenico music. But I can go from classical to heavy metal to alternate in a flash. I LOVE music.

I did pop a video in today becuase I was just gluing tons of die cuts that have been stacking up so when I'm ready for them, they are ready to use.

Michaels had a selection of sappy Christmas movies yesterday for $6.99 each so I bought 5.

While gluing I watched the Christmas Shoes. Oh my. That got to me. Then I learned the music was by NewSong.

I remember them so well - they sang in our church frequently and donated sound systems to several of the churches in our area, including ours.

In one of our Christmas Catatas that I sang in Bobby from NewSong was in it and also sang a couple solos. I loved it when he sang "I am determined" with us backing him up. His death was such a shock and watching that movie with NewSong in the background singing the theme song hit me kind of hard even though they recorded for the movie after Bobby's death.

Christmas shoes? Is that the one about the little boy wanting to buy shoes for his mom that's dying? If so when that song comes on the radio I start bawling right away. Love that song.

Yes - that is the one. Such a sweet story. Even though it was sad and I don't like sad movies, this one was good.

I'm in the middle of the next one - The Christmas Blessing. Its good so far too.

But you have to like those sweet Christmas movies.

I don't get to scrap much at home, but when I go to crops, I usually listen to Def Leppard, Theory of a Deadman, Breaking Benjamin, New Edition, and pretty much anything else other than classical, opera and hardcore rap.

I am an 80's music fan all the way! I do like classic rock too but the 80's with Duran Duran, Billy Idol, Cindy Lauper, Joan Jet, The Cars...all that was the stuff I listened to when I was in High School and I still love it. The man gets tired of it easily and cranks his Diablo game to tune it out! Christmas music is good too tho, a little Andy Williams can make my day any time of year!

I can listen to Christmas music all year long. But it's frowned upon in April!
Other times I listen to anything except rock. Just not my cup of tea. I love how everyone listens to such a wide range of music.
