What music do you listen to when you're working?

What is everyones go-to music for when you need to bang out some stuff? Mine is normally metal-core!

I have a spotify playlist with about a billion songs in it so I don't get bored, because I listen all day every day, but I'll also just start from a song that I like and see where spotify takes me to try to find some new stuff. On really bad days I'll throw on some classical music to calm my nerves.

Yep, I've got a few Spotify playlists I've set up just for that purpose, so I can just hit shuffle and let it play all day. Other than that, I have my daily mixes, and a few go to playlists I return to regularly. Genre wise, I'm all over the place haha, but I do like Spotify's alt rock playlists, like Alt Now and the New Alt, quite a bit.

Hi Valued Members,

 

Thank you for bringing this topic here in the Community. I'm positive this is going to be an exciting and interesting topic. It never gets old listening to motivational pieces of music from a variety of artists to boost your confidence while working. Some tracks from my favorite artist Eminem (Especially "Lose Yourself" and "Guts over fear") and "I'm still standing" by Elton John are mostly being repeated. LoL

 

Looking forward to seeing what other members may have to share on this one. Stay safe everyone!

I saw a commercial the other day (I think; I can't figure out how else I would have heard this song), and I thought to myself, that's Eminem (My Name Is). Turns out it was the song he samples in it. Not sure if links are allowed... the song is British singer Labi Siffre's 1975 track "I Got The..."

Usually depends on the type of story or scripts I am writing, I have a entire Youtube playlist of 90s Alternative Rock and Hardcare metal I play when I get into writing horror stories and thrillers for a client. ๐Ÿ™‚

Hi Devyn,

 

Wow that's a tricky one to answer so many but rock/alternative on one day and classical/jazz on another day - wishing everybody success!

When I'm working, zip, nothing.

 

Writing for 40 years ... it still demands my full attention. Having said that, I could probably write a story on a subway train, where the noise is irrelevant. But music is designed to get your attention. That's kind of the point of any music that's worthwhile. So, nope ... there's no such thing as background music in my collection.

It depends on my current mood. I listen to different genders, from reggaeton to punk. ๐Ÿ˜„ Lately, I have been listening to these guys. It's a Spanish punk band, that I found by accident, searching for something else on YouTube. And I just loved them.
