Good Music To Listen To While Studying...
Like others, almost anything with English lyrics throws me off. I work from home on my computer all day and I usually start out with the XM station called Audio Visions, which is new age really, but it's a lot more than just Windham Hill-type stuff. Then later I switch over to XM Chill, which occassionally does feature singing that distracts me.
I also like a lot of mellow Brazilian music because I love the sound of Portuguese, but can't understand a word of it.

And just WHO do you think introduced him to these wonderful sounds?
Thank you, thank you.....
And Wyndham Hill. Funny you should mention them, I thought I was the only one who had ever heard of that label. XM visions and XM chill? Is XM radio available over the internet or do you have to go out and buy it independently? I don't know SHIT about these new satellite radio thingys or how they work, but I've heard a lot about them.
"Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for thou art crunchy and taste good with ketchup."
XM Radio is the pay satellite network with like 150 channels, but instead I have DirecTV satellite TV, which carries about 50 of those channels, and fortunately they carry Audio Visions, Chill and all the other ones I care about.
There are pretty good streaming stations out there too, easily available through the iTunes radio tuner among other places.
Windham Hill was the most famous New Age label when I first started getting into it. A lot of it is kind of sleepy, but I admit that I like almost all of it when I'm in the right mood.

Rawjer. Try the acoustic works of Seu Jorge if you like Portuguese. I have no understanding either. But it sure makes me happy. At work, I constantly play Chicane's "Offshore" to take a quick 15 minute nap at lunch. I use some Bedrock as well, Like "Beautiful/Strange" try that.
Thanks Piecar. I'd heard of Seu Jorge, but didn't have any of his music. I sampled a bit of it last night and some of it isn't as mellow and melodic as I prefer, but I downloaded a few tracks as well as a whole Brazilian Lounge compilation he's featured on so the suggestion is appreciated.
Offshore is probably my favorite Chicane tune (and I assume you might be talking about the chill-out remix for napping?) but Saltwater, featuring that Clannad sample, is also a classic. It's nice to see there are a few electronica fans around.
