I chose Instrumental because
1) The words distract me
2) When you listen to things such as classical, non-lyrical music, it is actually proven to calm you
Just my take on it.

Anyone listen to EDM? Not the Dubstep stuff, the more FutureBass and melodic subgenres.

In the end, I had to select "Other" because my playlist is varied. On the one hand, Classical music is a staple - though they sometimes sing, the lyrics donh't bother me because it's usually in German, French, Spanish, etc. - but on the other, I could even listen to genres like Pop, Hard Rock, Light Metal and Abstract Hip-Hop if they fit the mood. Video game and film soundtracks also make up a sizeable part of my library, since they are, in my opinion, the most suited for accompanying a story; they were, after all, composed for exactly that. Sometimes, however, I pause my music for whatever reason and end up writing in silence.
tl;dr: I prefer Classical and Soundtrack, but other genres and even silence sometimes work well too.
But the Fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

For me, I think it really depends on what I'm writing. As I mostly write poetry, it has to go with the feeling of the poem. So if I'm writing something happy and up beat I'll probably listen to pop. If I'm writing something filled with anger and rage, I'm gonna go with more of a rock genre, something that sounds angry.

I listen to gaming music. So technically, I listen to anything.
Everything is awesome! Including owls, swords,
