It's completely subjective, and what works for you!
For me it depends on my mood, but I generally like instrumental music without a lot of singing. While a number of genres fit that description, for me what i enjoy most and puts me in a good relaxed state of mind are compilation solo's of Derek Trucks, Long extended jams by the Grateful DEAD, Allman Brothers and Quicksilver Messenger Service.

Other times I just like to zone in to the game and have nothing on,
