      Wow, that's an amazing selection. Could have been mine.

      However, I prefer a moment of quietude before matchplay, concentrating only on breathing for a minute or two. If that really doesn't help putting me in the now and here only, there's another Nocturne that helps me more:



      ... and there's Arvo Pärt:



      … and Satie's Gnossiennes:



      ... and the Goldberg Variations:



      After the match, I might pick myself up using:



      ... or:

      I must say i'm gonna try out one or the other.
      This next song here helps a lot when struggling with confidence.

      Reptilla by The Strokes.

      The first ever TT video I watched on Youtube had that soundtrack to it.

      Woah, those don't come up very often!! Some cool songs in here.

      Personally, maybe this:

      It depends on my mood. Sometimes I listen to baroque operas, sometimes soft pop, but most of the times I wanna fire up myself so metal. I am visual kei fan (so promotion comes) and these are my favourite speed up songs:

      If I want something more oldschool the X Japan and either Kurenai or Dahlia. I am biased, but Yoshiki is one of the best drummers in the world. For the best result please watch the video, the spirit in their live concerts was phenomenal! Fast part begins at 1:35:


      Instead of movie soundtrack I listen to Kamijo, whose voice is great. Yeah, it's very slushy-mushy (visual kei is slushy-mushy), but sometimes I have the mood for it. For the best results listen without visual input(not video, just music) in high-quality, max volume and let the overplayed vocal flow through your body.


      If I need ULTIMATE POWER I choose Jupiter to give me B.L.A.S.T.!:


      These are my matchplaying songs, but they doesn't represent my musical taste, as I mostly listen these when I need an adrenaline rush.

      My brain, so if it's gonna rain let it rain
      I spook you with the hit, make you jump like House of Pain
      Boogaloo boogaloo, shake and jump
      And remember, remember, Chief Rocka won't front!

      A BIG super Like that you know this song.

      Supercool!

      Ahah the thing never ends, never thought about that. Not sure I'll ever be able to "not hear it", from now...
