What music do you listen to while working/coding?

    Or do you not listen to any music at all?

    Currently for me it's the Assassin's Creed II soundtrack, although that's getting pretty old quickly. I almost always listen to music while working. It gives the unconscious portion of my brain something to process and if it's a soundtrack it makes my work feel 3x as important. :D

    Then again, it can be distracting sometimes, especially when trying to read something like an article. So, do you listen to any music while working, or do you prefer to keep it quiet? :D

    Spotify is a godsend for stuff like this. I can just hit up any album I feel like and let it stream. Only downside is those annoyingly loud advertisements. :mad:

    Some listed below are some of the groups I regularly listen to. Whenever I'm working I have to listen to music. A quiet surrounding forces that devs worst nightmare of "staring at the screen" waiting for something to happen. :D
    • RHCP
    • Disturbed
    • SOAD
    • Armin van Buuren

    With me, it varies. I like pop though.

    Not a ``coder'' here... but when in the studio, usually it's the kiddo's DVD menu music wafting in from the other room, looping endlessly !

    The tapping sound that my keyboard makes on a cold winter morning.

    The melodiously noise of my fingers hammering the keyboard at the office.

    Right now, it's Tower of Power, Blood Sweat & Tears, Chicago and various other soul, R&B and horn bands from the 70's & 80's as I'm currently in a project that covers these bands.

    It matters on how I'm feeling, but I usually listen to rock, or I'll listen to trance.

    I hate you.

    Dvorak, Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Fanta 4, most everything.

    I love music with hidden gems. So of course I loved it when I found out Aphex Twin's [mathematical formula] song featured a face in the spectrogram.
