Definitely depends on what I'm cooking and my mood. Often, if I'm cooking an all day meal and doing a lot of other chores, I like my 60s bubble-gum, to cheer me up. Other times it might be classical. One never knows.

For serious intense cooking, Wagner. Ride of the Valkyries is about right. Used to play it during drug raids, too. It's motivational either way. But I have to admit, it tends to make clean up a bit more tedious.

i love wagner. "entrance of the gods into valhalla" is good, too.

but then there's orff's "carmina burana".

or holst's "planets", especially "mars, the bringer or war".

To go a bit of topic, I got to pick the music for our civil wedding ceremony.
We entered to khachaturians Sabre Dance, signed the register to the Sorcerers Apprentice and left to the Can Can doing the Can Can.
