I like the flow of New Age music in the background. Anything from Enya, Julia Fordham, John Barry, Barber, Earl Klugh, Anugama, to Gorecki. Music that will help my flow as I massage across my client's body and for them to relax and get a relaxing flow to their body.

The sounds of "Nature"
I love the sounds of nature, especially water-related sounds(rainfall, waves, thunderstorms, waterfalls). Indian flutes/drums are appealing as well. You can never go wrong with the sounds of Smooth Jazz.

"Relaxing" music with "natural" sounds within it
One should ask the receiver, but if they have no preferences I suggest relaxing or spa music. Very quiet soothing music enhances a massage, which should be a quiet intimate connecting of two people.

We like climax music during intense sensual massage, movie music like Interstellar is good for this, Enya for massage before that. We like Classical music as well. The Body Electric music recommendations are good, too.

I like sounds of nature as it gives a feel of being natural and grounded to the beauty of the earth. Now how do you get a massage in a nature setting with chirping birds, ocean sounds and nude massage to be natural like nature. Lol
