Have you heard of this guy yet? Paolo Nutini ( A Scotsman of Italian decent) An awesome voice with a distinct “fun” style.
I listen to this track to get me moving when I get stuck on a task in the home office. It never fails to lift my mood and get the cogs going.
Do you listen to music while you work?
I almost always have something playing. I use MOG ( au.mog.com/ ) to stream different genres and styles.I’ll probably change the “Radio” three times a day.
Sometimes I put something called “Binaural Beats” on. Massage music at its best.
I love using Ommwriter www.ommwriter.com/ . This is a free download that provides a beautiful background in which to write. The software is kept deliberately simple with not a huge array of options, but has beautiful backgrounds, a range of fonts, keyboard sounds and – music. I use it when ever I need to get into the writing “Zone”.
Over at The Quartz Blog, they recently published a post about music at work.
They suggest music pumping away is great for factory workers but no go for comprehension and recall tasks.
No lyrics and a steady rhythm is the go for cognitive tasks. They also provide a playlist of their staff’s choices.
What do you listen to at work?
