When I write, I usually go to YouTube first and start listening to music. After a while, I am in a writing mood. You know that a lot of music ends up in my posts. You might call it a mixed bag of old to new.
While I do listen to music at times when writing a blog, there is no specific requirement on WHAT I listen to when writing. I could listen to a country music CD or blast some thrash metal. All depends on my mood.
