What's your favorite music to Egg by?

The first lesson this forum taught me was to have patience as I learn how to use my new BGE. That was quickly followed with lessons (highly endorsed lessons) regarding the benefits of adult beverages while being patient with my Eggucation. I was thinking that the right set of tunes would pull the whole eggsperience together. I was just wondering if you would like to share your favorite music listen to when your egging?

    Pandora is my goto.   The main genre's I listen to are Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Hall & Oates, Steely Dan, and Supertramp.  I bought a cool pair of Omni-directional planter speakers last year, and they do a fantastic job on the deck/outdoor kitchen.

    Birds chirping, kids laughing in the back yard, and the sound of the wife oohing and awing over what I'm cooking.  That's the music I prefer.  

  • SkiddymarkerSkiddymarker Posts: 8,443
    I like it all, but Kentucky Headhunters from the "country" genre, AC/DC from the "rock" genre, Rolling Stones from the "country/rock" genre and all the blues artists from Robert Johnson and Leadbelly to Joe Bonamassa. Or like @gabriegger I sit and make my own music... 
    Delta B.C. - Whiskey and steak, because no good story ever started with someone having a salad!

    +1 with @CharlieTN (minus the kids laughing in the back yard). But I've seen some great tunes and bands listed in many of the responses!
    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.
