One basic tip that I learned by myself (not soon enough) is to turn the water off, so you can listen to your razor.  In straight razors they talk about singing blades, imagine that!

That being said, i read a while ago right here in TSN that playing some music while you shave is a good way to make the whole experience a little better.  

So, i blended both tips and now I play music in my iPad at less than half the volume.  Just enough to hear it, not so much that you don't listen to your razor.  

Simple question:  what music do you play while shaving?

I play jazz.  Mostly Al Jareau (rest in peace) my favorite singer of all time, who passed away recently;  and Anita Baker, so powerful and sexy!


Al Jarreau was a favourite of mine, when I grew up. Very few knew him here in Denmark, even less know him now.
If I had to pick one favourite track overall, not just with AJ, but overall best track, AJ's Golden Girl might be The One.

I also was a big Anita Baker fan, especially when I was a teen from 1988 and 5-6 years into the 90's I listened to her music a lot. As with AJ very few knew her music in Denmark, even less know her now.

As a white Dane, probably 75% of the music I listen to are black music (R&B, Funk, Soul, Smooth jazz, Hiphop and blues)

I have a broad taste in music.
I can go from listening to Armin Van Bureen, Paul van Dyk and other trance/electro music one minute, to hard Hiphop the other minute to smooth jazz and end up with Jimi Hendrix and The Doors before I need silence

I prefer smooth jazz and easy going pop music, played at low volume, while I shave though.
It's important for me to hear my whiskers get cut, especially during the last pass, so low volume is preferred.

I'm also often a late evening/night time shaver, and can't wake up the girl friend.
anita baker helped me land my wife. so a big plus on that.  can't have music while shaving though. love the razor sound

Oh so many songs on my iPhone. Ranging from Doo Wop to Dvorak, with a little Bob Dylan , Herbie Mann and Dave Brubeck among others.

Lately I have been listening to classical music on the radio, which helps to make the shave meditative.  A bonus is that my shave times have been coinciding with the Mozart hour on the radio station.

Michael Buble, Beatles, Garth Brooks, Justin Timberlake, Bonnie Raitt, etc. — listening to music is an important part of my shaving experience. Not loud music, mind you, because I am also listening for the whisperings of the blade.

Last week I did get carried away with one snappy tune and punctuated a prominent downbeat with my conductor’s baton (Blackbird razor with fresh blade). Whacked myself right on the kneecap. I wanna tell you that hurt. And the styptic pencil brought tears to my eyes. Not gonna give up the music but am gonna be less stupid.

So you mean if I paid myself $1 every time I said/did that, I could fund a new razor?
You guys are brilliant!

Usually live albums from Classic Rock bands - Allman Bros, The Who, Led Zeppelin, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Marshall Tucker Band. I'll also throw  in some Beatles, Rush, Pink Floyd, Atlanta Rhythm Section, Three Dog Night, Grand Funk Railroad and several "Jam Bands." I usually include the music selection at the bottom of my SOTD posts too.

I use an Amazon Echo for all my radio and music listening.Smile  

When shaving my head in the evening after a workout, I play BBC Radio York.  At this time of day, the program on air is presented by their late night host Russell Walker.  He plays a nice arrangement of music, has word games and does a quiz (guess the year in which these songs and events took place).Smile

My Sunday morning shave finds the Amazon Echo tuned to BBC Radio 2.  Depending on when I arise, it's either Michael Ball's show or Elaine Paige's.Smile  At noon on Sundays, i really enjoy listening to Paul O'Grady.Smile

On Saturday morning, Alexa plays the local Akron, Ohio talk shows on WNIR.Smile

My fallback is, "Alexa, play Frank Sinatra."Smile

Today I’m going to shave listening to one of my favourite synth-pop-rock bands from when I was a teenager and into my late 20’s: Talk Talk.

Mark Hollis, the lead singer, died yesterday at only 64 years of age.
May he rest in peace.

Talk Talk - Life’s what you make it



Talk Talk - Such s shame

Claus, the second song you posted it's a favorite of mine. I also like the "It's my life".

May he rest in peace.
