It really depends. Sometimes the roommate will turn the TV on while we're playing, if we're just questing, hitting 5mans with guildies, or bopping around town.When RPing, I like instrumentals. No words to distract me as I type--though I often do listen to lyrics as well--and it's often eerie how my randomizer will pick the perfect song for the moment. I definitely tend to listen to instrumental music when writing stories (for characters or in general) and doing homework. Mostly, though, I listen to lyrical music, either mine or my roommate's, depending on who turned it on first and has their headset off. I will turn on WoW music for new zones and instances, or for old favorites like our recent guild RP run to Kara for newer players. But generally the music gets stale after the zillionth playthrough and I want to hear something else in the background. I can still hear the audio cues I need to with judicious use of volume control.I know my raid leader loves the Soundtrack addon, using it to play specific music in various zones or during trash vs boss encounters to invoke mood in his own play--and indicate when a boss has hit a certain percentage, to kick in the triumphant hero music!
