Update on some more stuff I've discovered since the original posting:

Soundtrack to Altamira (a wonderful movie BTW) -- great instrumental from Mark Knopfler
Soundtrack to Valerian -- some tracks with vocals, some without
Dance with the Dead -- a programmer friend put me on to this group, high-energy lyricless electronica

If I have music while writing, it's going to have to be film soundtracks or classical music. Vocalizations tend to distract me or worse...find their way into whatever I'm writing.

I miss the good old days when NPR had music shows through the day, but thank goodness for online streaming.

When I'm writing, coding or doing anything remotely intellectual, I prefer Mozart. Tchaikovsky's nice sometimes, but I start to sing along after about half an hour. Same with Grieg.
