Do you listen to music when you work? What's your go-to when you want something on but also need to focus? Looking for a new playlist.

Video game soundtracks are great because they’re specifically designed to induce focus. Final fantasy is one of my favorites but any of them will do. Otherwise, I also love listening to the lord of the rings score while working. One perk is that the whole trilogy score is super long so you won’t be aware of how much time has passed lol

When I'm in the office I really liked my playlist of instrumental covers of pop songs. It's pop and fun but without distracting lyrics (and less embarrassing if a senior partner wanders around). Specifically piano tribute, post modern jukebox karaoke albums, The theorist (piano covers but like hotline bling and stuff) Wfh I've been really into phoebe bridgers radio which is mostly indie stuff bc it's indie and instrumental fkr a soft background but lyrics keep my attention enough so I don't zone out. The other day I listened through Green Day's American Idiot album and I was on a folklore/evermore kick for a bit so it really varies

Punk rock and metal give me energy to get things done. Funny because how can anyone concentrate on complex legalese when some kid from the late 70s is yelling about the tyranny of western imperialism?

Depending on the mood: metal/rock, dubstep, trance, darkwave, ambient/experimental, or modern instrumental. Anything without lyrics or with unintelligible lyrics. Instrumental also has to be something unfamiliar or I start vibin’. Honestly, MyNoise is easier.
