Do you listen to songs in the background while working?

    Do any of you guys listen to songs while working? By working I mean while on the computer doing your IM related work. I for one can never do it as I always seem to get too much into the music and forget what I was doing and later realise I just wasted 30 minutes playing the air-guitar. Maybe thats just me, I do love music though, a bit more than regular people do. But I still wanted to know if it helps any of you guys to concentrate?

    I'd ask "Do you work in the background, while listening to music" :)

    I used to listen to The Beach Boys' new album about a month ago nearly every day. I guess it reminded me of my goal of sitting on a beach just printing money! Ha ha. Once or twice through and my work was done ha ha. Before that I would listen to a radio talk show and it distracted me so much! Now I just listen to anything! I like the baroque music.

    Oh ye. Armin's and tiestos trance radio shows are good background music. Sometimes i play my playlist trough. When i listen to the music i really like can't help the concentration slipping into the music rather than work from time to time.

    Sounds strange, but I actually enjoy listening to rap music while working.

    All EDM stuff, or I go with some ChillHouse and Lounge like Claude Challe and Adam Plack Pandora station. Maybe Blackmill if it's later and night that more chillstep bassy stuff. Just love some light house music in the day, Ibiza, Florianopolis, type stuff. Lemongrass, Mocean Worker, Buddha Bar, etc.

    Always good to have some music pumping.

    I usually listen to podcasts. There are some pretty good ones on SEO actually. SEO 101 is good.
