OT: What music do you play while working?

Hey everyone!
What music do you play while working, or chatting? :wink:

I’ll start:
-when I’m facing angry customers I go for Eminem, just to be ready to respond to their disses you know.

-When it’s a pretty chill day, I like playing disco music; just to get into the mood.

What about you?

Hi @Ema

When I really have to focus on a difficult case or task, I like to listen to the noises of a forest, wind, rain, fireplace, etc. Some researchers say that listening to such sounds while working boosts concentration and productivity.

If I’m working on artwork it’s anything from Propagandhi, Pusha-T to Joni Mitchell etc.

I like listening to foreign music, as in, music that is in a language I don’t understand. I particularly like French music. French electronic pop is really great and it’s not distracting as I don’t understand the lyrics!

Three of us work in the same office space together, so we often cycle through the different music we play.

Today, there’s some EDM playing but other days we’ve got Top 40’s, Indie, Country. I think the only thing you wouldn’t hear coming out of our door would be rap or hard-core metal!

Usually something rhythmic, so a lot of 1970s/80s Funk, so Bootsy Collins or Rick James. Or if things are calm, I’ll listen to podcasts. The Babysitter’s Club Club and Sardonicast are my favorites there.

I can’t stand of any distractions, so it’s hard for me to listen to music while working. I’ve tryed several times, but every time music draws my attention.
