I am currently writinig a 5 page paper about a topic that i know very little about and have to have it done by tommarrow (procrastination FTW) and i am really tense and can't work.

What are some relaxing and calm bands/songs/albums that i can listen to to help make me a bit less tense.

(remember kids, procrastination is bad )

ummmm, if your looking for motovation, try some techno, nothing gets me going like some bad ass beats.

And if your going for calm, and boring. Korn will do just fine.haha

Listen to Tool dude.

Iron and Wine, shins, newer bright eyes, beach boys.

but from someone who used to have borderline ulcers from stress, I can easily say that the most relaxing music especially for school work is classical. Don't be an idiot and listen to Korn or sabbath or BLS.

If you can find the song MOS 6581 by Carbon Based Lifeforms it will do your trick.
I've decided that my signature is terrible. I'm open to suggestions.

Hey, the guy in xCobainx's sig took my idea about quoting weclome to the jungle when my gf gave me head (but mine was less dramtic)

Yes i am working, i'm on page 2 and whitebluesboy, thanks, classical has calmed me down a lot.

Edit: guy above me, you have just won, that music is amazingly calming

The Heretic - The Sound of Animals Fighting.
Very chill song.

Edit: +1 to whoever posted explosions in the sky. Most if not all of their songs are good to relax to.

Wow, thread starter, I am in the same boat as you right now and I actually just talked to my friend who's in the same situation too, how weird is that? and yeah, I hate procrastinating but is just very hard not to do that. I Have a paper due tomorrow and I'm just out of it, I'm gonna have to turn it in late though.

As far as relaxing music well, not knowing what you usually listen to this is my suggestion: listen to soft and mellow songs that you know but mix them with some songs that usually make you feel active and keep you motivated; let them push your brain so that it can keep moving and giving you more ideas. As you do that don't pay attention to singing or it will distract you, just get hyper with the beat of the more active songs, and relaxed with the softer ones. I hope that helps and good luck to you man!

OH MY GOD!!! I AM A KOREAN GIRL! you found me, LOLLLL!!!, nah just kidding! that was funny though, that would be pretty weird.

Also, you might prefer to listen to instrumental songs more that anything as it allows you to concentrate on your writing a lot more.

And yeah, you don't usually find good writing and spelling on The Pit, but I always write the right way no matter what, which makes it obvious that you won't usually find me in The Pit.

Yah it would have been

I need more instrumentals, the high woman-like singing of the power metal bands i listen to does distract me quite a bit.

I try to too but you should see my spelling nomally, it's atrocious.
