Depending on mood or intellectual depth, any, if not, all music influences imagination and thinking. However, i'd say there are indeed some that offer the most substance in that respect.

Those piano sonatas by Dax Johnson were pretty good. I'll explore him further.

For my imaginative and intellectual stimulus, my classical joys such as Chopin, Liszt, Ravel and Vivaldi are at the top. Debussy is too apprehensive and timid for me. Some other choice selections of mine, anything by "Mt. Eden" is good.

Ambient... start with Boards of Canada and Stars of the Lid. I like to maintain a general mode of activity at most times, that means balancing out the edges. You can learn to use music as the perfect mood alternator. What I find is that most songs, especially lyrical ones are pretty much numbing, replacing of thought, overpowering/affecting, not complimentary.

Imagine focusing while listening to this


Compared to this when upbeat is needed


or this for downbeat


The mind cannot be surprised by spontaneous, erratic elements. For proper adjustment it needs concise, repetitive notions. To eh know precisely what is coming before it comes and thus be able to unconsciously associate it to a specific mood.

I always prefer to lift in silence and concentrate on form and breathing.

No matter how well you eat and prepare sometimes it just doesn't go right at all, so I don't think music helps in performance since it just gives you adrenaline boost momentarily, I rather work-up my mind with my thoughts. So I don't think having a momentary boost doesn't help at all in a long run, it just turns into a ego lift, I rather try to get that intensity without outside influence.

If you exercise really hard, music or any background noise becomes irrelevant as you expel too much concentration and energy to focus on continuing when every corner of your brains commands to stop. Physical pain often dominates the psyche completely too.

Actually music does help after the essential/heavy lfits, during the filler exercises in the end (tried it out last week). Blocks out all the disturbance and helps concentrating when you don't really need to watch your form too much.
