You gotta vote for the one you like! Not the one you hate because you are going to eliminate all but one type. :-P

I voted Classical... I usually listen to classical music when I study or on the occasional road trip, it makes for a perfect soundtrack driving in the mountains for example..

 

So, even though it's not my favorite genre, I think that if all of humankind has to listen to just one type of music, classical would be the safest and the most beneficial just because it stimulates and soothes the brain...

 

Also I think the lack of lyrics allows for a more universal interpretation

True, my 5 month old Son can't get enough of it. He loves all his Baby Einstein videos which use classical music to promote brain growth. And I enjoy it from time to time. I think at some point everyone should give it a listen because that is when music was very complex and expensive and not everyone could afford to be a part of it. I took a classical music class in High School and it was very interesting.

I always said that the day I have a baby I would play a lot of classical music for him/her while in the womb and also during the early years of cognitive development ! It can only be a good thing ;)

It's definitely a toss-up for me between Techno and Rock.

Now that I've had a chance to REREAD the OP, I chose jazz.  There are all different types of jazz that really make up for the other genre's listed above:

Smooth jazz is the best type for gettin' busy!!!!   B)

I voted Jazz because smooth Jazz is what I listen to most days.  Also like country, classical, rock  and some Techno.  Classical can be a challenge to play(I play piano) because some of it is so different in melody than what we are used to today.  I am talking the likes of Brahms,  I sit there and try to learn it and it sounds so ...so...off from what I am used to and I think this can't be it...but then it is... then it's hard to play  on top of it.

So I just assaulted my ears for the past 4 hours with nothing but Hardstyle/Harddance. I got so much work accomplished in that time, lol. Being more of a House/Techo/dubstep person, it was a fun change up to listen to the fast pace.
