    I like to develop (when I do) to rock music. Something Good-charlotte style, with a good rythm. Or Dance music, I'm a big fan Big Smile

    If Blackberrys are addictive cellphones, Channel9 is the ultimate addictive website.

    So how's that meant?
    Do you want to embed music, do you want to listen to music while coding or do you want to code something based on what the music is like?

    If it's music to listen to, I'd recommend something which lets you forget about the time Big Smile This way you'd get more work done.

    Dance and house. Or better none, if you really need to focus (which is often lately). Dance and house have always the same melody - no variations - simple music - that's why it isn't distracting for me.

    Apparently my managers seem to think the sound of drumming in the next room, the bass from parties outside and the repetition of video editing mixed in with the drone of air con units & a dash of loud meetings 5 meters away would make us work better.

    Occasionally they try to really help us out by bringing a group of people to tour our office.

    Sounds a bit like my IT "lab" (its not worthy of the name)which is situated right next to the music rooms Big Smile

    As for tours... too many people think it's apt to walk in at the most annoying moments.

    Silence is golden.  The only time I listen to music while working is when the work environment is too noisy otherwise.

    I actually find I work better with music in the background. I will listen to anything, rock, metal, blues, jazz, pop, whatever, though I find that if I really need to concentrate, classical works best.

    I always enjoy developing to the WOXY.com radio station or any quiet indie music. It really helps you relax and get in the zone.

    Yeah I agree. Dance and house don’t distract, I sometimes also listen to Gregorian chants either mixed in with dance music or on its own.

    Same here.  In fact, I find if I don't listen to music while working, my brain starts playing music in my head for me, which I find takes extra cycles, so I'm much more productive if something else is playing the music for me.

    I like to rock and electronic (any variation).  Lately it's been Korn, 311, Sevendust and a few others (for rock) and Chemical Brothers, BT and Crystal Method (for electronic).

    Anything repetitive for me, I don't actively listen to it, but I find it puts me in the zone quite easily.  I find it much harder nowadays without music, especially in an open plan office where it takes someone 10 seconds to disturb me and then another 10 minutes to get back into the zone - I blame old age.

    Chemical Brothers for me. Good driving bass line, kicking drums, gotta love it Smiley

    Edit: Also some primus as well, but not all of it.

    I know this is weird, but I find that when writing, playing the end credits music for Moulin Rouge! somehow speeds me up. The song lasts about 8 minutes, and while part of it keeps repeating over and over the overall song changes constantly. It only lasts 8 minutes, but I often find that in those eight minutes I'll have gotten along much farther than when I'm not playing the song. It sort of shuts off my brain and puts me in the zone instantly.

    I should look for more music like this, except I have no idea in what genre I should look. It's a bolero and has no lyrics, maybe those are the key ingredients.
