Being a drummer, i tend to pick music that doesn't make we want to air
drum instead of program. :)

I stick with intstrumental stuff -- Chick Corea, Spyro Gyro, Pat
Methany and Al Dimeola  have a number of jazzy tunes that don't
distract. The Orb, Orbital, Philip Glass, Brian Eno, Vangelis and
Tangerine Dream offer great "space aged" (now that's an old fangled
term) background tunes as well.

Meshuggah in the work place is right out.  I just don't agree with
that ... in the work place. Great at home though, like the weekly
smashing of the home furnishings, etc.
