What music gets you kept you motivated when developing?

Alan Reid asked in General
Had an interesting message from a GoRails member (Jacob) which mentioned what music we listen to as we develop. It's a great discussion starter and could be cool to share playlists from Spotify, or tracks that really help you get int he zone as you're building up your apps.

We could even create a GoRails Spotify playlist. And if you don't use Spotify what do you use?

So to get us started, I have been listening to these acoustic playlists they get updated every so often. But I find them great to have playing in the background.

It depends on what I'm feeling. 

Recently I can put this on rotation and get to work:

Music is a passion for me. Music has helped me get up from falling. I love music


I find that music with lyrics interfere with my thinking, and classical music is not that interesting, so I find this is very suitable for listening at work: Violin Covers of popular songs


A gentle and relaxing music will help me be more motivated to develop than exciting music. I usually listen at and where do people usually listen to music.


good share, thanks


Just all music, depending on my mood


Deep house music , chill out
