A while back there was a thread about shaving to music. I get up way earlier than the rest of the house hold. So except for the singing of my razor blade I normally shave in silence.

That changes in the spring. I am up just before dawn. I have a natural symphony. The spring peepers are not as loud as last night but they are still out there chirping away. To me they are the ever present strings section. Added to their sound comes the barking call of our resident barred owl. He is like the percussion section. Rarely used but always loud enough to be noticed. As the sky lightens the peepers and the owl quiet down only to be replaced by the wind section. Robins calling back and forth remind me of flutes. A new percussionist joins beating out a staccato rythm - most likely a hairy woodpecker.

Soothing and relaxing it fits my morning shave to a tee.

Very well written.

The only time I had some music during the shaving was on January 1st. The Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra was playing so I turned the TV volume up.

I'm still in the "no distractions, listen to the razor" stage of learning my DE, but the birds in the morning are just fine.

Even though I live in the heart of a very large city, I still wake up to the sounds of chirping birds and, yes, it is nature's music. Wonderful! Smile

The sounds of birds are nice, and I like the occaisional sound of our wind chime when there is a morning breeze. Otherwise, no music, no radio or TV. The time shaving is my little escape from thinking about the hectic pace of work and travel.

Sounds nice!

By the time I get up I might have the soothing melody of the guinea fowl squawking outside. Of course the roosters are also crowing their supremacy to the world. But I can ignore all of that.

I prefer quiet so that I can concentrate on being one with the razor and the shave. I also like the sound of the razors that I prefer while they work at mowing down the whiskers. It sounds like toast being buttered.

I normally shave after work since I start work at 5 am, toooo early to mess with a DE shave lol. Wet shaving is very relaxing to me and I look foward to it but I also love music so before I whip up some lather I always put on a CD or Pandora radio and completely enjoy my shave!

The running water, sound of the brush making lather, the scraping of the blade, and a gentle breeze is music to my ears. If the occasional bird wants to join in, that's fine with me.

Now, if I'm the one cooking breakfast in the morning, get out of my way. I have either Bach or Beethoven playing loudly in the background.
