What kind of songs you enjoy listening while playing?
Lately, my go-to song is Buzzcut Season by Lorde, or anything with a relaxing keypad sound. What about you?

My playlist for playing the game. It's pretty small right now. I plan to expand it soon.

Assuming I'm listening to music rather than watching a TV show or chatting with friends on another screen, I'll usually find a "music and ambience" video on YouTube that meshes nicely with whatever my current project is supposed to wind up being... currently Laketown ambience from the Hobbit films, since I'm working on a river structure, but I've used lots of different versions, everything from cyberpunk to heist soundtracks to any number of Harry Potter themes (whenever I return to working on my Hogwarts lots for a while!).

Wow, that's such a cool take on it! I never thought of doing that. I might try.

For me, it depends. For the most part, I listen to the game's music and audio. If I'm just in a mood to listen to my music, I just listen to my Liked Songs playlist on Spotify, which has a mix of artists and genres. Skillet, Nine Lashes, Thousand Foot Krutch, and other bands, which apparently fall under the 'Christian Rock' genre. I also listen to a lot of NateWantsToBattle, some Lawson songs, and some dance music. I have a lot of All Time Low and Hollywood Undead in there... I have some Genesis... a couple of Britney Spears songs... a bunch of other stuff too, but we'd be here all day...

Under the spoiler tags is just a screenshot of recent stuff I've added... it gives a bit of an idea...

I listen to other game soundtracks that I love too, while I play sometimes; mainly The Sims 1 OST (best Sims soundtrack in my opinion), the Final Fantasy IX OST (both Standard and PLUS versions), and the Digital Devil Saga OST.

My music taste is too wide and I often call my Spotify 'whip lash.''

When a game is predictable, it's boring.
That goes for any medium that isn't life.
That's why The Sims 2 is my favourite sims game.
It has elements of unpredictability and everything feels more involved.
The Sims 4 is another story altogether...

I play with all ingame sounds turned off, I like to have my own music in the background. I usually just hit shuffle on my entire collection while playing, because it's the one time I don't mind any genre and can skip anything I'm not feeling (I have to curate my driving playlist because I can't skip while driving, and when I'm working I need focus).

So I have a great time, sometimes reminded of songs I haven't heard of in forever.

My favourite thing is when I get to see the Sims dance to music on the radio, especially if the song really matches up and there are a bunch of Sims all dancing at the same time like a party. And sometimes I get a slow song on and make couples at weddings have a first dance, it's lovely

That's great! I love her new album.

I mainly listen to pop, I've seen pretty much all of its extents, but I'm trying to slowly expand to rock.
I think Miley's 'Plastic Hearts' could be a somewhat interesting starting point for me, since it's a take on pop rock. I'm also relying on Poppy and Rina Sawayama for that, really recommend their work.

Whatever is my current Spotify playlist!

However, recently I have been making playlists for each neighbourhood

I find that doing this, I miss themed music when I take sims to community lots, so I have started to use Spotify to search for a genre and play a playlist from that genre, usually matching whichever speakers I put in that community lot. It actually works really well.

That's definitely something I'll have to try! Thank you both for the suggestions :D

When I'm PLAYING I usually have no music unless my sim has a radio and turns it on, in which case my favorite stations are new wave & techno.

If I'm building or doing anything else in the game I'll sometimes put music on for that. I got really into Eurovision in 2019 and haven't actually listened to any music besides Eurovision songs or other songs by Eurovision artists since then.
I recently had to redo my music folder so I can actually tell you what my most listened to songs while I was setting up my megahood 2.0 over the past few weeks were. Here's a few with the highest plays.
