Is there musical accompaniment?

What music, if any, do you use as a backdrop for cooking? Do you play it loudly or softly? Or do you prefer cooking in silence or to the sounds of the house? I prefer old jazz, but unfortunately I live with a newshound, and so, either CNN or CSPAN accompanies my kitchen work a lot of the time. Growing up - every night as we sat down to eat, my father would say "let's have a little _____ music," as he reached for the knobs of the stereo always located in the dining room. The blank would be filled with whatever was on the menu...let's have a little soup music, let's have a little spaghetti music, let's have a little meatloaf music. I think in the same way about everything: let's have a little do the laundry music, let's have a little clean the bathroom music... let's have a little COOKING music...

Do you cook to music?
