The Best Times To Listen To Music – According to Genre

Each Jonre is different. Sorry, genre. Certain types of music (genres again) are best to listen to in the morning, at night, and even when you’re driving.

In other words, your mood is heavily influenced by the time of day, music heavily influences your mood, so picking the right music for the time of day is probably important. Here’s my personal list according to decade, artist, and genre (They don’t necessarily relate with each other).


Early Morning (6am to 9am):

  1. its always a good time for zeppelin

    • I agree…but the BEST time for Zeppelin (at least in my opinion) is during the afternoon when you’re cruising down the highway.

  2. Err, tell me Jon, do you always listen to the music all day long? -___-
