Im not into one genre only. I listen to whatever comes to my mind from classic to punkrock^^Even though i prefer "harder" tunes like NOFX, Pennywise etc.

Cheerio!!

@mindfaQ
Haha I listen to Portal 2 soundtrack aswell! Very satisfying to listen to when trying to concentrate :P

@Beaverlicious
I like NOFX and Pennywise too! Do you listen to "Social Distortion" or "Bad Religion"? I discovered NOFX and Pennywise through them :P

The good thing about the Portal 2 soundtrack is that it is free^^.

@mindfaQ
Very true! Though having Youtube makes pretty much everything available to listen to for free :P

@Kyatric
Nice playlist! I recognise a lot of the music you have in it, nice variety of different genres too! I grinned when I saw "The Beach - All Saints - Pure Shores" amongst all of the other music, I like the song, but it feels out of place with all the other music

Your channels recent activity mentions Dan Bull. Not sure if you listen to him as much, but I'm a fan of him myself! I don't find myself listening to his music whilst developing though, I feel that rap music makes it more difficult to concentrate with short-term memory stuff, but hey that's just me :P

Having the files available locally is always more convenient :) (+ yt is only 192 kbps aac on HD, so you'll miss out on some of the more masterfully crafted pieces of music if you have a good audio setup)
