    LOL Honestly... I usually have the TV on, or listen to a podcast.

    Beyond that, music tempo depends on how fast or how thoughtful I want to be.

    Depends, movies for me when culling and doing most meta-data.
    Then when post processing the image beyond the very basic, everything from current pop music to 80s hair bands and metal to 70s classic rock to Celtic with plenty of Classical (Mahler, Strauss...) and Opera (Wagner, Mozart...) with the occasional jazz thrown in. So I am sort of all over the place....

    Like Tim, my music tastes are eclectic. I started to learn the mandolin in January, so lately I am usually stuck with what ever ear-worm has captured my head and usually reflects the latest piece of music that I am trying to master. Today, those are "Amazing Grace" & "Noah's Dove" (Dink's Song)

    I wish I had as much free time!
    Between work and kids, I am barely making progress on my French and on Photography. I would love to have the time to learn the piano, flute...

    Getting time, money and opportunity to coincide to be able learn to play my first musical instrument took 69 years! I've wanted to play the Mandolin since I was 15.

    More modestly, I have just started to learn the ukulele: age wise, I'm a year behind Cletus. As an online source said "we don't play the ukulele because it's cool, we play it because it's **** easy". Well, maybe.

    I think this is great!. Do you play any thing else? Is this your first instrument (like me)?

    First instrument (apart from badly strumming a guitar in my youth)

    In the UK there is a great network of linked charities called the University of the Third Age (or U3A). It's for retired or semi-retired people, and the idea is that you have an enthusiasm for something, you are invited to set up Group, and see if other members want to join. My local U3A has over 1,500 members, and over sixty groups covering everything from arts, music, walking, languages, pool - just name it. Anyway, ours has a Ukulele group, so we have five beginners who are being taught for the first few weeks until we can join the main group for a play and sing along.

    While I have my favorite discs and subscription music stations, I like some variety on occasion, but often have trouble finding new or forgotten artists or albums. This happened the other day on my evening commute home by bus where I listen to music if none of my neighbors is riding with me. On a whim, I searched for greatest rock albums and a Rolling Stone article of their 500 greatest albums popped up. I don't suspect that I will listen to all 500, but it is a nice list to browse for suggestions.

    The Rolling Stone list isn't a very good one. I see no Queen albums listed.

    I would agree that Queen needs to be on some greatest rock album list, and that the list I mentioned is certainly not the be-all end-all of lists. But it is 500 artists/albums to jog the brain, and any large list like that tends to help with the selection process when decision paralysis begins to set in. I am always open to other list suggestions.
