What's your go-to background music for coding?

I've been listening to a lot of Morcheeba and trip-hop music, plus more folksy stuff like Over the Rhine and Vienna Teng. Stuff with a beat but low key enough not to pay too much attention to.

But I do sometimes get stuck in a rut, so that's why I like to ask this every once in a while when I know I'll be behind the keyboard for a while :)

@autumn Whatever channel from most suits my current mood - so usually Chillout/Chill-hop or Goa/Psy of some flavor.

@AmethystDragon Ooh, I haven't explored yet. Good pointer, thanks! (I'm going to end up paying for another subscription, aren't I?)

@autumn various types of deep house and trance usually

@autumn really depends on the mood but city pop, jazz fusion or some Tatsuro Yamashita.

Other music might be Fleetwood Mac and Steve Miller Band.
