Simple topic I know. But what do you listen to when you write?
(Just throwing this out here) But here are some situations I use for example.

Sinister:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pNrz6Oe62Tk&feature=related

Marching:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BNxDpOiqBP0&feature=related

Sad:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aDbohXp2oEs&feature=results_video&playnext=1&list=PL9FDFC85C6184F336

What's yours?

If I'm writing something Medieval, I usually listen to Elder Scrolls music. For instance: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w0P9NZqgh6Q

If I'm writing something more modern, I for some reason listen to various anime OSTs. Like for example http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lDidYfVy ... re=related

That or I listen to really catchy yet somehow non-distracting songs.

Like this. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=pl ... ximxe4XtU# !

It helps me concentrate not too, but if i'm stuck (writers block) then I do.
There is no such thing as a stranger. Only friends we haven't met yet.

Other than a couple of other times, no.

lol, all the time!
We were made to corageous,
We're taking back the fight.
We were made to be corageous,
And it starts with us tonight.

And the only way we'll stand,
Is on our knees with lifted hands.
Make us corageous,
Lord make us corageous. - Casting Crowns

Most of the time, although I do find it distracting at times. Here are some examples:

Yes most of the time it helps to listen to music when I'm doing my writing, but only slow music helps me concentrate on what I'm doing.

Hey, if it was easy, everyone would be doing it, so get out there and do it!
