I'm old...I listen to a lot of stuff from the Great American Songbook genre: Sinatra, Ella, Dinah Washington, etc. I have TONS of music in iTunes so I just kick it off on random play and see what comes up.

I also love audiobooks. I'm in the middle of listening to Dickens' "Oliver Twist" at the moment.

I usually listen to whatever is blasting out from the kid's rooms... sometimes it gets so bad I can't tell who is playing what. One is on a Green Day kick, another listens to hard rock and country and the other listens to classic rock. It's all good!

I listen to a soundtrack called My Crazy House If you've never heard it then you need 2 dogs that are 11yrs apart in age, a husband that watches American Choppers and Biker Buildoff, a large fish tank that younger of said dogs likes to growl and bark at, and neighbors with a 4 wheeler and fireworks (yup I live in the country).

And my family wonders why I'm so excited about vacation !!

sometimes i have a period film playing in the background, usually something like jane austen or the newest little women. i love the music in those films. the other night when little women finished and went back to the menu, i just listened to the short clip of music playing over and over! fyi...that song (the "theme" of little women) is the one playing in the trailer for becoming austen! i'm sure there will be PLENTY of knitting inspiration in that movie.
