I listen to music usually to drown out the conversations going on around me. Anything familiar that I've listened to hundreds of times is the most effective for me because my brain doesn't feel the need to follow along with the music. I listen to all kinds of music, but typically leave the classical and instrumental stuff for when I'm too easily distracted.
We can program with only 1's, but if all you've got are zeros, you've got nothing.
