I personally prefer piano music, usually from Chopin. It helps me collate my disparate thoughts.

Depends on how stressed I am and if I experience that stress more like anxiety, anger, sadness or restlessness.

From twerk/Latin beats, death/black metal, Sia to instrumental like Yiruma.

Prefer female voices.

This might sound weird, but some of my favorite music to relax to are orchestral pieces from movie soundtracks, especially if there's a dramatic choir singing in Latin. One of my favorite examples is either the music from The Hunchback Of Notre Dame or the music in Ghost Rider when Johnny Blaze is first transforming into the Rider.

I love a lot of different genres of music, but my favorite to relax to is dark ambient, space ambient, dream pop/ethereal, trip-hop and melancholy sounding piano music.

It varies because a lot of different popular songs and ethnic and classical pieces can strike different cords (pun wasn't intended) of emotion for me, so they install different kinds of relaxation.

Having said that instrumental, jazz, ethnic, classical or electronic pieces are best to help me blank out my mind and keep clear and relaxed.

yup also like, was also there and watched the filming of the beach scenes as it was filmed where i used to live. was alos funny watching them set up the beds for the cover art, lets just say it didn't go according to plan! lol... The beach scenes were had a lot of local lads, they were so sick of it by the end, as when the first takes were taken they were all sort of quit jolly, so director kept redoing the scenes and by then end they were all totally fed up of it, which was pretty much what the director was trying to get from them. The planes that were used were huge model planes and were pretty awesome to watch. I never actually knew what the filming was about until a number of years later when i saw PF the wall for the first time at school and realized i was there watching the filming, i blurted out that i was there and saw it all as far as the beach scenes go, no one believed me and told me to shut up and stop making things up! lol, story of my life! hehe

Excellent choice: 'Red Right Hand' and 'Into My Arms' are brilliant.
