    Just a fun poll, but do those of you who enjoy listening to music while sucking on your pipe, have a specific genre for the occasion?

    For me I can't imagine anything more fitting than some classic, good C&W. I only wish I had a porch and a rocking chair.

    I love listening to Celtic Punk (Dropkick Murphys, Dreadnaughts, Flogging Molly, Rumjacks, Pipes and Pints, etc.)

    Well, to be fair, that thread isn't specifically asking what music you like to listen to while smoking your pipe.

    Mostly Buffett for me, although Neil Young, Billy Joel, Moody Blues, Gustav Holst, & Dire Straits are also high up on my lists (yeah, listS; mood-dependent. -laugh-).

    Lately music while smoking a pipe has been stuff like The White Buffalo, Cody Jinks, Chris Stapleton. But I listen to many different genres while smoking a pipe. There are a few exceptions. Although I love it, I can't listen to metal while smoking a pipe, it ruins the relaxation and the moment for me. Hip Hop.... never liked it with or without a pipe. I really prefer relaxing music while smoking. Life is too hectic as it is, so I let my pipe smoking be a time of peace.

    When I was younger, I couldn't stand silence, and I always had a TV turned on, or something spinning on the audio. Now, after years and years of raising kids, there are times when no music can sooth me, like just listening to the birds or the rustle of the wind through the bamboo.

    But, I have never been one to let my music choices define me. It always seemed like people around me were choosing their clothes and lifestyles from their music selections. Black T-shirts, parachute pants, overalls, cowboy hat, long hair, tie dye, boots, barefeet... I've never been able to relate to fandom. I have never rooted for a team for longer than the game on, nor a band, nor an actor, a product, or a brand, nor anything really.
    But, that said, I used to have a sign in my car, when I was a bachelor, "If music is how you define yourself, do not touch my stereo."
    And nowadays, the further I get from all of that, the more relaxed I can get.

    Isn't that an oxymoron?

    Dire Straits! Yes!! Though I have mostly classical on, and most of my smoking with/to music is in the car. At home it's golf, computer, or TV.

    I know that you believe you understood what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    If we are getting hard pressed to find original thread ideas, maybe...

    "What kind of pants do you like to wear when smoking?"
    "Do you lean on things while smoking standing up?"
    "Do you like to match you pipes to your shoes?"
    "Fighting while smoking, what do you do with your pipe?"
    "What blend smokes best in a blue pipe?"
    etc, etc...

    Don't worry about it Judscasper, it's our fault, not yours. We've just been on here long enough to see certain things get cycled through. There is even a thread where guys post what music they are currently listening to while smoking.

    hmmmmm... Smoking on the toilet, clench or hold in hand?

    I was merely suggesting that someone put the time into sorting those music threads and creating a pie chart of the popular smoking music. The data is there and it would be interesting.

    Got to be in the hand... unless you want to shatter your teeth, of course... Ah, I see you already went there. Toilet humour from an American. Interesting

    Sorry, crashthegrey. My post was unnecessarily sarcastic, and not aimed at anyone in particular.

    Country and Western music. Is it oxymoronic?

    https://youtu.be/0C08jmN1sM8

    Listen to the link above and you'll see and hear the difference between Western Swing and country music. Bob Wills and The Texas Playboy's played the real deal Western Swing. It's very close to big band music and very different from what is defined as country today. It's almost a dead genre with a few exceptions. Asleep at the Wheel plays some real Western Swing today along with a very few others.

    The country music of today is mostly the evolution of guitar driven Southern Rock of the 80's; ZZ Top, 38 Special, Blackfoot, etc...

    Most modern country pop I hear coming out of other people’s radio sounds more influenced by Vanilla Ice than ZZ Top.

    I like to sing and smoke pipes at the same time. Record part of a song, smoke part of a bowl. Record another part, smoke another part. And then they are finished.

    So I basically end up listening to myself a lot. Even though sometimes it sounds bad.

    Something calm like The Handsome Family or Chris Rea works well for me.

    Love loud metal but it doesn't suit the pipe moment.

    And, as Anthony said, no hiphop with or without pipe.

    I don't really have a routine or preference... but if it were right now, I'd put on some Nick Cave and smoke a toasty burley out of a big Canadian.

    Years, ago I picked up a hitch hiker in Biloxi. Turned out to be a guitarist for the Isley Brothers (yeah, that many years ago). He told me to come to the show that night and use the back stage entrance. So, me and a buddy showed up and asked for "Wa Wa", he comes to the door and ushered us in and left us to wonder around backstage. I had a David Bowie tee shirt on and some of the Roadies thought I was a Roadie too and had worked for Bowie. Man, I felt like "The Shit" that night! Cool memory from the long ago.....

    Being a DJ in the '90s scarred me. Usually dark wave, techno industrial, and trance.

    It's ok embers, you're not alone. My gf was into the rave scene in the 90s and early 2000s, and a couple years ago she talked me into seeing DJ Aphrodite. Now I like jungle. That led me down a YouTube rabbit hole, and I started listening to D&B (especially dark/hardcore), some heavier dubstep, and various types of the more loud, aggressive kind of electronic music. I've always liked industrial and metal, so I found a lot that I liked and can appreciate the skill it takes to be a good dj and to make electronic music. It's more complicated than I thought!

    As for me...after reading this thread, I'm smoking my pipe and listening to a dark drum and bass mix on YouTube. Earlier today it was the Rev. Horton Heat, yesterday it was Tom Waits' Rain Dogs. Not long ago, I decided I needed to start appreciating jazz, so sometimes I'll play something by Coltrane, Miles Davis, or Art Blakey. Sometimes I play classical music to annoy everyone else in the house.

    I listen to whatever I feel like listening to at the time. Right now it is Ella Fitzgerald, after listening to about 30 minutes of Billie Holiday.
