Looking for suggestions. What's good coding music? (Or other background filler?)

These are my three favorite albums I listen to, when I'm at work ...

I often have ASMR videos or fan noise going. Anything without words (or in a language I don't know) otherwise the language processing part of my brain gets tied up and it slows me down.

Gregorian chants are delightfully monotonous and make a nice soundscape.

I tend to listen to a lot of Talking Heads when I'm coding routine stuff, but nothing beats silence if I'm doing really hard stuff I don't understand.

Spotify's "Brain Food" playlist was a good start. Then you can just tell it to play similar music.

Awesome! Thanks, gang. Keep 'em coming if you want. These are great selections. I found some Spotify Brain Food playlists on YouTube and I'm checking that out now, it's definitely the type of thing I'm looking for. I kept looking for study/coding music on YouTube and found the selections to be TOO light for me.

My internet connection is abysmal, so I download MP3's that are created/inspired by video game soundtracks.

At the Star Control II website, they have Ur-Quan Masters remix packs.

I enjoyed the Super Cartography Bros. collection.

The Portal 2 soundtrack was free.

And I have fun discovering new stuff on the Overclocked Remix site.

Also, my taste in music is terrible, so your mileage may vary.

Frogs singing, high surf, waves breaking on the banks of a lake, brook, rapids, "kachuck-kachuck" noise of train wheels going through a switch, pink noise, a chorus of chanted "ahhhh" looping continuously, There are also some stuff easily cooked up on analogue synthesizers, particularly a sort of wobbly bass note.

Celtic music has the perfect combination of pulse and melody. Here's a playlist!

Personally, I code to Progressive Rock and the like, usually Rush or King Crimson. Also symphonic metal, but nothing too heavy.
