I used to listen to music when playing OTB.  I found out i am not one that can multi task.

Music works well for others and some not so much. It depends on your brain type aka Howard Gardner’s Multippe Intelligence Theory. I don’t think I would allow my opponent to listen to music during an OTB match though because of cheating.

I know a lot of people listen to music while playing.  And i seriously doubt that may can truly multitask.  Maybe some just like to listen to music.

"...2 percent of people who can multitask effectively. According to an infographic from OnlineCollege.org, 98 percent of people who try to multitask actually impair their productivity more than help it. "

Well, I would definitely recommend NOT TO PLAY ANY MUSIC WHILE PLAYING. While playing chess you should respect it and play it in a peaceful environment as it has to be played like that to take out the best. When you are playing the game of chess it needs concentration and I know you got inspired from Hikaru but he is a Super GM and a experienced player.

Hmm, I agree chess and music together can be a multitask.

I often listen to music while playing chess. It helps me focus. But that's just me.

For amateur chess players, multi tasking listening to music isn't helpful in improving concentration. Some professional players do listen to music while analyzing to improve concentration and be able to tolerate distraction. GM Jan Timman listen to Classical music. GM Nigel Short listen to rock and roll. They claim it improves their concentration and they can't be easily distracted while playing tournament chess.

can we listen to any music or any good sugesions

I suggest Heavy Metal music. If one can tolerate Heavy Metal, nothing can distract his concentration while playing chess.

Doesn't work for me: my brain starts focusing on the melody instead of the position on the board.

Play something subtle yet melodious. For this I would strongly recommend either Chopin or Debussy.
