Listen to music while Roleplaying? Yes? No?

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Brovo on Sun Nov 02, 2008 11:32 pm

I know that some people listen to music while they Roleplay, and others do not. Some need music to clear their thoughts and come up with unique and creative ideas, while others just find the entire idea silly and merely distracting in the whole scheme of things. How about the rest of you? Do you listen to music? If so what genre of music? How about your favourite band? Any genres of music that you absolutely distain to listen to while coming up with a Roleplay post or not? Music music music.. Right back on subject.

I personally listen to music while making posts most of the time. Why? It isn't that it clears my thoughts, I just love music. It also helps me get into a certain mood, such as if the Roleplay has hit a sad moment, I play sad music to get into the mood faster.
I only teach those willing to learn.

I agree with you there to a certain extent, although I can't say I have much sad music. I find it helps me when I'm trying to set the tone for my own posts. I find it much easier to slip into a character with the appropriate music.

Well, I simply love music to begin with so this wasn't a hard answer to me. Thanks for commenting and one last thing.

WOW! This website is alive!! I can actually watch my view count go up. It doesn't take two days to get ten views like on Gaia. Wait wait back on subject.

I love Rock n' Roll the most though. So much variety in moods for Rock. ^^

I listen to music ALL THE TIME. Not just when I'm roleplaying, ahaha. I listen to it when I'm doing school, reading, roleplaying, riding in a car, playing sports, anytime! Music is seriously the second best thing that God has created, next to human beings. Love it!

I love music. There isn't a specific song or songs that I listen to for certain types of posts. I listen to what I feel like listening depending, usually, on my general emotions of that day. I listen to all types of music, except for rap, country, and classical, but my favorite is rock/hard rock and some metal. My favorite band, by far, is Disturbed, but after that it's a toss up between Audioslave, Rage Against the Machine, Slipknot, Linkin Park, Breaking Benjamin, Three Days Grace, Soundgarden. The list goes on forever, but I'll spare you the agony or reading my whole playlist + everything else I don't have.
Check out Eastbound, a zombie apocalypse story I'm writing on my own.

I may actually get back to this, now that I'm here again. Stay tuned!

Disturbed: Poor, generic
Audioslave: Decent
Rage Against the Machine: Decent, if generic
Slipknot: generic
Linkin Park: pathetic, generic
Three Days Grace: Decent, generic
Soundgarden: Best one you have on here, not that that's saying much

If you want to get some good rock/hard rock/metal, check out Symphony X, Incubis, and the older Nightwish stuff (Nightwish is by far the worst on on there, but I'd consider their newer stuff to be only slightly less than older Soundgarden, and that's only because they switched from Operatic metal to pop metal.). If you want something that compares to Linkin Park, get Skillet, as they tend to be not quite as disgusting shitty.



Kasurin note Alright, you said your opinion - that's nice. Keep it classy (this doesn't mean sugarcoat the shit out of your posts) next time. Why? Because this is how flame wars start.

Woaaaah! Okay okay I created this as a positive thread not a "lets go bash whoever happens to have different musical tastes." thread! If I wanted to do that I'd just go to Gaia! Stick with the positive. Personally, I dislike Nightwish. It's just dull to me. Dragging on and on and on. But hey, if you like it then good for you. Otherwise, I'll stick with my musical tastes. Don't like that? Don't gotta hit the quote or post button yanno. . .

People who attack others because of differences of taste should consider that everything is subjective.
As for me, I love music of any genre, from jazz to metal to ska to electronic, and everything inbetween, as long as it's good. Right now I'm on some psychedelic chill-out.
Favourite bands and artists? Gong, Anyreon, The Mars Volta, Cultura Profetica, Shpongle, John McLaughlin, Bob Marley
And of course I'll listen to some music while I roleplay, my imagination works better if there is a soundtrack.
The flock of bleeps surounds my ears.

EDIT
Actually, instead of locking this. I'll just clean up the mess. And, if there's another mess when I come back, it will be locked and/or an administrator will take action.

Hrm...Given that this could indeed be a damn awesome topic I'm gonna strive to give it something to live by.

You better believe I listen to music while I roleplay. Moreso when I'm about to fight since it takes a lot to get me into that particular mood and more to keep me there. I'll admit that I use Disturbed, Korn, and Three Days Grace and I'll admit they're all generic, but given that they fit the situation or mood they're fuckin gold for my imagination. I mix it up with some Streetlight Manifesto, Static-X, Amon Amarth, and for when I want that epic feel I reach for some In Flames. It's great for getting my mind into whatever situation my character has managed to finnagle himself into or even whatever messed up, obscure way he happens to view the given environment.

In retrospect, I really use it more for me and MY character and not the rp itself.
Failure?! No-way! I-taught-him-to-shake-hands!

Viking metal in general is good for that epic feel. That's for damn sure. I listen to pretty much every band in my collection but those are definitely the top when it comes to getting into the right frame of mind. And...You need to check out my Viking Metal thread, CR22

I'm personally quite fond of classical music; I really can't listen to--

I'll stop right now. Just informing you of my tastes.
And music tends to get me into the mood; for most cases, an upbeat air like Fiocco's "Allegro" is suitable; for the more lachrymose cases, I pull out a CD of Mozart's Requiem, or otherwise grab Rachmaninoff's Vocalise.

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Lord Saladin on Sat Feb 07, 2009 3:29 am

I also listen to music all the time, so it only makes sense that I do so when roleplaying as well. Generally, however, I don't necessarily choose music to actually roleplay to, but rather just what happens to be in my playlist that day.

However, if a post is failing to come to me, I will switch music and listen to something that sets the mood, allowing for better inspiration and general feel of how the post is supposed to be - This usually works pretty well.

Surprisingly, however, there is one particular song that seems always to get the inspiration out of me, regardless of post type - Disturbed's 'Forsaken' from the Queen of the Damned movie soundtrack. It's an awesome song that I love, and it seems to always work - Don't ask me why though, because I really don't know.

Music Music Music! I'm always listening to music. Any kind of music will do.... but country ... No country... *shiver twitch* I mostly listen to Japanese, Chinese and Korean. Throw in a bit or Russian and German. Then there is Cold Play and Muse. And soundtracks like Sweeney Todd, Harry Potter, The Disney Channel. Music 24/7. That's how I roll.
If you wish to die, then I shall grant that wish. If you do not wish to die, then let me protect you! For that is all that I can do for now.
