    Everone has music that puts them in "The zone."

    What music works best for you when cubing? For me, the John Butler Trio and Dave Matthews Band get me in the zone for cubing.

    Lame one: to get in the zone I like to listen to: Golden Earring - Twilight Zone ;)

    I cube best with some Justin King, probably just anything mellow, but I was listening to him when I got my current record of 1:27
    I find when I listen to metal, it's too complex, and I get mixed up :s

    I get my best times to the song "Stronger". It has this very encouraging and calm tune that I can easily slip into and perform well.

    Otherwise I find Sum41 music works decently as well, but I get irritated of it fast. I usually then just alternate between Sum41 and some random Techno/Dance music, anything with a beat
     
  7. Peace and quiet works best for me

    Hi :)

    Something very rhythmic would definitely be good. Even i, like Arnaud, prefer peace and quiet i guess Talking Heads - Remain in Light should do the trick :rolleyes:

    My favourite music would distract me too much :p

    Oldies such as Bob Dylan, Bob Seger, Tom Petty, or maybe Journey.

    Techno and trance, the faster kind to stimulate speed

    I like listening to LTE while cubing as well.
     
  16. Whoa, cubers who are Liquid Tension fans. I can only assume you are Dream Theater fans, as well?

    I have seen dream theater 4 or 5 times, so yeah I am a big fan.

    Acid Rain by LTE is a good cubing song.

    However, I have broken the most PB's with a live version of "Teen Town" by weather report.

    Last night I got a new 5x5 record with Cut Chemist Suite by Ozomatli

    Its all about the song.
