    Listening to music while working

    How many of you listen to music while working?I work best when I listen to music,it just puts me in a great mood and I do my best work.My brother does our programming and man it's music non stop and if you dare turn off the music its like productivity goes down 50%,hahaha but I love it.The only problem I have is when I have to talk on the phone.

    If it was up to me I would spend the entire day wearing headphones and listen to music. There is nothing better for the mind than appropriate music.

    Hi there League, so what you got playing?
    I got Credence Clearwater Revival playing right now. I sometimes do a few dance moves here and there, yeah! Playing in a traveling band! Yeah -oooohWOW!
    I always have music playing in the background whilst working in the office. I play everything under the sun, and hit the smooth selection at night. I find that music generally increases my productivity.

    I just love rock music and some Latin American as well. Carlos Santana brings the two together. Sometimes when I have to seriously concentrate, I play classical music. It blocks out the background noise and distractions. White noise...

    On the way to work, hell yeah.
    While working, in my case it would probably be distracting. Mind you, maybe some genres of classical music would work out ok.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    I listen to music in the car on the way to work, and I crank up the volume, I normally listen to something from York or Era. At work, I just have a local radio station in the background.

    I love complex instrumental music - Jean Michel Jarre, Mike Oldfield, Ratatat, Vangelis, Sky
    and lots more: Nickelback, Five for fighting, Alice Cooper, Depeche Mode and many many more....
