Music does many things for me- it blocks out other distractions without the weirdness of noise cancelled silence, it gives me something to occupy my mind between coding bursts so I am less likely to jump over to the internet for stimulation, and it seems to keep my brain more active in general. I generally listen to melodic stuff, (like melodic trance or classical music) no meaningful words, but often with vocals.
