What do you listen to while enjoying a smoke?

This may seem like a weird question, but I'm curious to see what everyone listens to while enjoying a nice cigar. Nothing is better to me than sitting on my back porch with a fine stogie, a glass of Chivas, leaning back on my reclining patio chair, turning on a little Lester Young or Coleman Hawkins and puffing away. What about everyone else?

    The sounds of nature around me :)... I rarely listen to music while I smoke... I prefer peace and quiet or a nice convo with a friend(s)...

    I have nothing set in stone that I listen to. Tonight however, I'll be listening to a high school football game. My younger cousin will be the starting QB as a sophomore and I'll be glued. He has already received letters from a few D1 schools. Hopefully I'll be watching him on Saturdays in a few years.

    I can really change it up depending on my mood.  Bach’s Goldberg variations are in the player right now (I’m a pianist) – others as of late have been Strange Sensation/Robert Plant, Face Dances/Pete Townshend, Hollywood Town Hall/The Jayhawks, and some compilation cd of other artists performing hits by The Band.

    I sit on the edge of 2 ponds and lots of woods....so I just listen to everything out there and enjoy it. Plus I normally read when I enjoy a cigar so it is very relaxing.

    When I listen to music, I have a hard time keeping myself from headbanging, so I generally don't listen to music while I smoke.

    I do enjoy watching TV with a smoke, though.

    I myself depending on where iam at ..... if with family and friends the coversation will suffice, if at the cabin, the sounds of nature works and if its just me .............. well sorry boys but iam a heavy metal louder than life kinda guy ........ so dont judge me based on music , but rather based on what i smoke.

    No judgment here king, you'd be surprised how many of us listen to metal. As for what I listen to when I smoke: the coyotes, bugs and the freaking loud wineries around me playing anywhere from opera to some moron singing karaoke.

    Jazz, blues and funk/soul are my first choices.

    I listen to a lot of Zep, Tesla, Stevie Ray so that is usually on but sometimes I am in the mood for Metallica (usually older), Bon Jovi, White Lion, Skynyrd, Allmans, etc...

    If I do listen to music I usually listen to some old blues (Alber Collins and Robert Ray), or I'll listen to Evanescence. I love her voice. Normaly though its just the air and my thoughts or the convo of a close friend.
  • I tend to listen to A Perfect Circle, Pink Floyd, or Jimi Hendrix. I try to relax as much as possible when smoking a ciar. kinda like an escape from where im at without actually leaving lol.

    I usually don't listen to anything... just the sound of the traffic in the city
