I'm usually watching the Comedy Channel, which accounts for why I occassionaly screw up my measurements.  <Blush>

Two weeks ago, I read my spreadsheet wrong.  I took the salt weight to be the weight of the ADY.  When my wife called me at work to let me know the dough was trying to escape the bowl, I knew immediately not only what I had done, but what we were having for dinner than night.  Yikes!

Sorry, I'm not much help.  I'm a visual, not audible guy.

A.O.D.  (Adenaline OverDose, an old punk band from the 80's), had a funny song called "Pizza and Beer".  They knew what they were singing about..Two great tastes that taste great together!

I have nothing of Dean Martin's to recommend, but in terms of Italian-American music, I prefer Louis Prima.  Most people will probably remember him from classic Disney movies such as The Jungle Book, singing songs such as I Want To Be Like You, but some of his other notable hits are Angelina (Zooma Zooma), Sing Sing Sing, Pennies From Heaven, I've Got The World On A String, Jump, Jive, An' WailAngelina is probably the most appropriate for pizza making out of his collection.

Disclaimer: I have a proxy relationship with Gia (widow).  I'm not sure if the public is supposed to know this, but some new Prima media and content including a biography (expected to become a movie) is being assembled by Gia with the help of a friend of mine.

EDIT: As a second disclaimer, if you want to purchase Prima music, please purchase it directly from louisprima.com, as legal complications I can't talk about prevent Gia from getting paid if you buy the music through iTunes.  I provided the iTunes link so that you can preview the music to see if you like it.

I have 3 CD's:

"Eh Paisano!" (cover looks like a Ronzoni pasta box label)

and "Viva Italia: Festive Italian Classics"

Search Amazon or CD universe I'm sure they both have them. I'd post URL's but as a new member I cannot.

Another fav is "Pasta Classics" which is all classical music.

If you want something more modern...the trip-hop sounds of Madreblu are a good choice.

Another fav is "Firenze Sogna" by Giuseppe DiStefano although a lot of other artists have recorded it.

You may remember the scene in "Goodfellas" where a man late on his payments stumbles into the pizza parlor after being shot in the hand. That's the song that's playing in the background.

And another: "In cielo una stanza" (in this world we love in) by Mina.

Another from the Goodfellas soundtrack that never made it onto the Original Sountrack Recording. Pity.

All great responses so far.  I'll just add that I don't think anyone can go wrong with anything by Billie Holliday in any situation, including pizza making/eating.

If Paradise is Half as Nice - Amen Corner ,1969 + huge influence + and catalyst for my love affair with much Italian.

Bryan Ferry - Immediately transports me back to mid seventies,sunny Napoli.

Lucio Battisti - Anything. don't understand the lyrics,but it doesn't matter does it?

Zuccerho - The Italian Cocker.

Rosario Flores - Spanish gypsy who puts the same passion into song as a Neapolitan puts into pizza.

Annie Lennox - Scottish and the qualities of Flores.

No one has mentioned Claudio Villa!!!

Wonderful and angelic!  his music was made popular again in Big night.

You can search him in amazon or I have a link to him on my site too...  His early recordings are just great.

For some reason, when making pizzas and breads I have long enjoyed "Baba O'Riley" by the Who played at full blast. I was just kneading some bread by hand while listening to the album, "Who's Next". That song is so full of energy - perfect for conquering the dough.

I guess you have to be of a certain age (insert old f*rt smiley here).

I find that whatever music I am in the mood for at the time is perfect for making and eating pizza.  Could be just about anything (well, maybe not Barry Manilow).  Anything from Marvin Gaye to Metallica!  Barry White to Bill Monroe!  It's all good, as long as it is made with a passion for the craft.  Just as it is with our pizzas!  Of course, you can't go wrong with Sinatra, no matter what you are making.
