Any suggested soundtracks for viewing?

However, when I observe from home, my neighbors to the north and west each have The-Dog-That-Will-Not-Shut-Up, so music is a necessity.
On my iPhone I have the two-disc set of the Music of COSMOS. (Wow, glad I bought it in 2000 when it came out for about $40. Selling for nearly $300 at Amazon now!) I also have a subscription to the Hearts of Space broadcasts (there's an iPhone app), which is nice as my local public radio station stopped carrying the program.

Often though, the best music is the music of the night, the silence of the night. I love hearing coyotes howl and snap. The fly over by bats or owls is cool. I also enjoy the sound of the birds that fly around in the night and the insects.
This is my music of choice, while observing! I love just hearing the sounds around me, geese, loons, coyotes, and even cattle from quite a long distance away. I do love listening to music, just not while observing.
+1 Although I'll often listen to music while in the warm room (currently have on the soundtrack to the film "Paul" which is fun) I find music distracting when observing.
