Music best to listen to in office to avoid noise

Guys I need suggestions on the kind of music/album that I can listen in office.

The primary purpose is to avoid any kind of noise distraction caused by nearby cubicles, chatter etc.

So mostly it should be instrumental not having vocals. I tried some hindi instrumental songs but since I know them already they maybe distracting.

Any other options like Classical Music, Meditational Music, Flute, Piano music, English songs soft, raagas etc.

The main thing is it shouldn't have Vocals

Guys I'm sorry for bumping into an old thread created by me again.
Looking for some kind of music which is pleasant to hear which can be used during work hours to concentrate on work.
I tried instrumental songs from movies but that doesn't seem to work.
Will appreciate responses.
Sorry once again for bumping into this.

There are some amazing compositions/ragas in Indian classical music the list just goes on and on. This is what Music is about.

You'll be surprised that its this same industry that churns out "chaar bottle vodka" like songs. :evil:

Y'know, once you get conditioned to these classicals, you wont be able to listen to other "music".

Also, in non-indian classical try out Mozart, Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, etc...

Heard about it. But not sure.

I think the catch here for me is that apart from the music being soft/calm it should not be familiar.
I had some collection of instrumental songs from Hindi Films which ended up distracting more then

Some words of advice from Osho which i fully agree with

Once it happened: I was staying in a rest-house. And a political leader was also staying there—a very small rest-house in a very small village. The political leader came to me in the middle of the night, and said, "It is impossible to sleep. How are you sleeping?" He shook me, and said, "How are you sleeping, there is so much distraction?"
Somehow or other at least two dozen dogs…they must have made the rest-house their abode—the whole village's dogs. Maybe they were having a political gathering also—and they were so many; there was such a loud barking and fighting.
He said, "But how are you sleeping? These dogs won't allow me to sleep, and I am tired."
So I said to the political leader, "But they are not aware of you. They don't read newspapers, they don't listen to the radio, they don't look at television; they are not aware of you. I was also here before you. That is their usual way: they are not doing it specially for you. You are fighting, resisting. The notion that they are disturbing you is disturbing you; not they. Accept them!" I told him to do one small meditation. "Lie down on the bed. Enjoy their barking. Let it be a music. Enjoy it. Listen to it, as attentively as possible."
He said, "How is it going to help me? I want to avoid, I want to forget that they are there, and you are telling me to listen to them. That will disturb me even more."
I told him, "You just try. You have been trying your way, and it has failed. Now try my way; and you can see that it has been successful with me."
He was not ready for it, and he didn't believe it; but there was no other way, so he tried. And within five minutes he was fast asleep, and snoring. So I went and shook him up, and I said, "How are you sleeping? How is it possible?"
lf you accept, nothing can distract you. lt is the very rejection in you that creates the distraction. So, if you want to meditate without distraction, don't reject anything. The traffic noise has to be accepted—it is part of this world, and perfectly okay; the child crying and weeping is part of this world, and perfectly okay. Once you say that everything is okay, just watch the feeling that everything is okay and accept it. Something within you melts. Then nothing distracts. And unless this happens, you can go anywhere you like and you will be distracted by one thing or another. foll308

If you have no intentions of helping that's fine for me. But why do you waste my time and your time by posting all that.
I didn't need any gyan or enlightenment from you.
I didn't go and complain to anybody about disturbance/annoyance that someone creates.
I was just looking for some kind of music which will help me concentrate on my work which I'm paid for.
Nowhere in my Job Contract it's mentioned that I should listen to all the sound/noise from surroundings and still give my best.
Better keep your enlightenment to yourself or give it to someone who is in need of it.

That was bit uncalled for, don't you think. As "Anirbandd" & "Faun" shared their opinion about the type of music they like, so did "srkmish". and you just blew it out of proportions.
