    What type, kind, or genre of music makes you want to go and load and light your pipe???

    For me, when I hear a good well played lone fiddle, I tend to start looking for my riggin to light up...

    All the music I enjoy makes me want to light my pipe and everytime I light my pipe, I want to turn the stereo on. That would be jazz, blues, rock and "extreme" music.

    The music is incidental to pipe smoking. Genre has no influence, and when I'm in the mood for a pipe then I'll listen to whatever hapopens to be on at the time. Under no circumstance would that be Industrial, Thrash, White Pride (yes - there is a music industry that caters to these little Security Threat Group/skin-headed peices of vermin) HipHop, Gangsta, or anything by Lady Gag Me - I do not care for these forms of musical expression and I do not listen to them. (But to be fair to Lady Gag Me, I would tuck a buck down her G-String if she was working as a stripper).

    I here what you are saying RTO, but sometimes a song or a tune will come on somewhere and I will get the urge to light up...

    I've been listening to Industrial on and off for the past 2-3 days....Helps me get stuff done, and I kind of zone out while listening to it. I think came from when I started listening to Industrial while going through over 1000 photos to edit/throw out before the weekend was up.

    You need the 24 Hours of Throbbing Gristle box set and its companion, TG+ which is just 10 CD's. That's 34 CD's of Throbbing Gristle concerts. That would take care of a day and a half. :ohyh:

    Together they'd set you back a cool grand, though. That's a lot of pipes and tobacco!

    Jazz, Classical, Baroque, Rock, Bluegrass, Blues, Rap, Country, Trip Hop, "World" Music (what a cop-out name for a non-genre), Reggae, Opera, you name it. If it sounds good to me, I'll listen to it. There are very few genres of music which I flatly dislike, though the vast majority of artists in most genres I do dislike (especially country, rap, and at least modern incarnations of reggae music).

    One exception to the "I like most genres..." rule is zydeco music. Zydeco would be perfectly reasonable grounds for a hostile invasion and extermination by space aliens.

    I'll listen to anything I enjoy when I'm smoking, but very rarely does music generate and urge to smoke. I usually am keen on lighting up regardless.

    Could be. She strikes me as one of those gals were warned about in the training films we had to watch in boot camp.

    Heck!, I'm really getting old!.....what the f#*k is 'industrial'? - and who sings/plays it?. I'm still not sure what 'garage' comprises!, and what kids call R&B now - is certainly not like the R&B I used to play. To get back on topic - my pipe is simmering most of the day, and I don't recall it ever being inspired by some music I've heard......a drink - yes!! :byg:

    Industrial is a product of the 1980's for the most part. Notable bands are Skinny Puppy, Front Line Assembly, Laibach, Psychic TV. If you, like me, tend to get hung up on sub-genres, don't go any further than 1980. You might find yourself trying to figure out the differences between math metal, grindcore and avant-thrash hardcore stoner doom. :xd:

    P.S. Having twin 16 year old boys helps!

    Good gravy... solid question. Most classical music, but I'm fond of Beethoven. I like jazz but rarely listen to it. As far as newer stuff, artists like David Ford, David Grey, Mumford and Sons are all wonderful pipe music. I also like heavy metal stuff, like full symphony Gothic metal, but that's not really pipe music. But this is why I started smoking a pipe.

    I think any and all music is fantastic for kicking back with a pipe. But I think my favorite artist to sit back with a pipe and listen to is without a doubt Tom Waits. Try it! :)

    Every time I fire up my favorite latakia bomb Pirate Kake, I think I should be listening to "Ride of The Valkyries" by Wagner.

    World Music is a name given to music from other countries that Westerners appreciate, but are too lazy to fully understand. Personally, I've developed a fondness for Cuban music over the years and have learned to appreciate most of the styles, from Danzon and Guaguanco to Songo and Timba.
