    Default Period shaving music...

    Occasionally, I listen to music whilst shaving. I happened upon this site Cylinder Preservation and Digitization Project That digitizes music cylinders from the late 1800's to early 1900's. They've got a couple radio channels here: Cylinder Preservation and Digitization Project - Cylinder Radio for those interested in increasing the authenticity of their shaving experience

    I like to listen to the Carter Family, Woody Guthrie, or Django Reinhardt. Certainly not the music of a Victorian gentleman, but something that puts me in touch with with an earlier time when straight shaving was still widespread.

    Thumbs up

    I listen to Mendelssohn, Mozart, Grieg or Bach, usually for my Sunday shave.

    Yes... much safer than shaving listening to King Crimson while high on LSD!

    I don't do drugs. If you want action try shaving to:
    Grieg, In the Hall of the Mountain King
    Wagner, The ride of the Valkyries
    Tchaikovsky, 1812 Overture
    Brahms, Hungarian Dance No. 5

    As nice as the idea of shaving music seems to be, to be honest I rather enjoy the simplicity of shaving alone with that comforting sound of blade-on-whiskers that we all love. I find it a calming element that adds to my zen moment.

    Johann Strauss Jr. The King of the Waltz for most my shaves. The tempo keeps my movements and attention in a timed and synced manner I feel. I do although avoid Wiener Blut whilst shaving.

    red96ta,

    Thanks ever so much for this link. I can use it to teach students in my classes.
