The only things I can't do while listening to music, are read or play guitar :|. The guitar thing is that if I'm listening to a song, I can't concentrate on what I'm playing... so I can't play along to songs :(

I have stopped listening to music, almost entirely, because of the distraction.

Right... My mind just goes into another world and refuses to think at all! I keep making a whole lot of mistakes... be it music with no lyrics or with lyrics

I almost always do things with music on except when I'm watching TV. I start zoning out if I don't have something auditory to distract me. I can have problems focusing on what I'm doing while listening to music but I tend to day-dream if I don't have music on. My focus was a little better years ago before I was on psych meds

How do you know I'm mad? said Alice.
You must be, said the Cat, or you wouldn't have come here.

*bike
*sign
*sing and sign (though it has to be a pretty slow song for this)
*read a book

That is all I can think of right now. Surprisingly though, I can't run with music.

Me neither I keep going off the curb or bumping into things.. I guess I do a lot of listening to keep me on track and music wont let me do that..
