PW, I was a music major, and so music is a big part of me. I focus on the musi itself far more than the words, probably could not tell you words to 50% of the songs I listen to. But for me, I want to just feel comfortable. This is a bad choice for probably some people, but I listen to blues, funk, rock, disco, but only songs that I would sort into a favorite list, and that have a positive vibe.
"Whipping Post" by the Allman Brothers, not in my trading song list. But I like the song. I also would not want "Too Hot" by Kool & the Gang. lol! I am being dead serious here. I like those songs, but not for trading.

i am a huge music guy....i spent many years on various instruments but most of it was big band, classical and jazz. Not interested in those genres for trading. Especially jazz. I hear the layers, the backbeats, the offbeats, the alternative melodies interwoven through the music and I lose all concentration on anything else.....classical is ok but its very structured and I think something less structured would be good for trading.....I am a child of the 80's hair band rock and roll and that makes me take crazy risks....so something that doesnt present any of those issues would be good.....
