What music do you listen to when decorating? - Page 3

post #31 of 55
I like this thread!
When I'm baking, I like loud music. I'll crank Bon Jovi or Queen, sometimes some metal. But when I decorate, I like melo. I have a podcast called iCoffeCafe from iTunes. It's free and it's only one track, about an hour of music and it's mellow, kind of jazzy but not so much that it makes me sleepy.

Oh, I also love to do either with re-runs of House on in the background. Gotta love House.

Definately music from the 80's if I need to keep my energy up for decorating. If I need to really concentrate it is Harry Conick Jr, Frank Sinatra, stuff like that. But, if my husband is staying up with me we put in a dvd, usually Harry Potter. Lately the movie has been The Lord of the Rings.

Serenatea - I think a Rivendale inspired cake would just be amazing!

Usually it is quiet when I decorate a cake. I will try decorating with music playing in the background. icon_smile.gif

That would be a pretty cake. Have you seen this Lord of the Rings inspired cake? It's so pretty. http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1167521

Jamalyn - Your from Chico? I grew up there, just moved to AZ this summer. Chico is one of the best small towns around. I tell my friends here that it looks like stars hollow from Gilmore Girls. Brick, trees, all the pretty stuff around Bidwell...

Oh Mike, I like you more and more. icon_biggrin.gif Old school all the way for me...whether it's hiphop or 80s. I put my iPod on and just go. It definitely keeps a flow going and just keeps me focused. Music is such a motivator for me!

I listen to stuff like Marilyn Manson, Black Sabbath, Aerosmith, Megadeath, 80's hair bands, Alice Cooper, Nickelback. Once in a great while I'll get in the mood for country.

I've been busy teaching my kids what good music is, my 5 year old likes to sing Black Sabbath songs. thumbs_up.gif

I watch movies sometimes and once in a while I'll turn on comedy, Carlin is one of my favorites, but that's when the kids aren't around.

What a great thread.
I listen to pretty much anything and everything. Last month I was mainly listening to artists like Bill Withers, Marvin Gaye, Aretha Franklin, Billy Ocean, and Ray Charles. Now I can't stop listening to Mötley Crüe. But my friends and family find it hilarious when they pop round and find me decorating a really girly pink cake while listening to Slipknot at full volume.

Haha, great choice. Anything loud and fast works for me when I hit the eleventh hour. Iron Maiden has saved my bacon more times than I care to remember.

I work with a younger crowd so Bob Dylan, Bob Marley and everything in between have become my favs.  When I am alone I like classical and slower music (r&b).

But nothing beats alternative and rock to get your blood pumping.

I have to rock out when I cake! I like Alkaline Trio, Bad Religion, As Friends Rust, Jimmy Eat World, Rollins Band, Bayside... It helps energize me, I swear, my natural state is half asleep.
