    It depends on the project and how well its going. I tend to lean towards hard rock when I’m on a hot streak, classic rock or country when I first start or am on a nice casual/steady roll. When I get stuck on something, I tend to switch over to classical music or listen to a podcast.

    I definitely have a tendency to hit the pause button when I’m close to solving an issue I’ve run into, and forget to hit play during the coding frenzy that usually follows.

    @chrisburton : There’s totally some yellow in there!

    @joshuanhibbert : Totally rocked that rainymood site to sleep last night { loved it } and this one seems exciting as well..

    @pmac627 : I think i’m going to start playing post casts (i.e. ShotTalk) in the background while i code, maybe subliminally i will start coding better.

    I’m a wierd one. I bounce around so many genres now. Matthew Good Band, Radiohead, Mindy Smith, Aerosmith’s first album, Dave Matthews Band, ELO, Scars on 45, Our Lady Peace…

    I just don’t have a particular genre anymore.

    I heart you Spotify.

    @robertallen : I need to get into Spotify, when it first came out i never got an ‘invite’ so i never cared for it and kept using Pandora, now all i do is stream music from my xbox or find youtube playlists. Do you still need an invite or have to pay for Spotify?

    Our lady peace = Back in the Day!

    No, I believe it’s still free, but you have to put up with the ads every few songs.

    Also, they claim you get better quality with a paid subscription, but I am not sure how much of a difference there is.

    I listen to music I’d listen to when I’m not coding :p
    But at times I want to be super productive I listen to instrumental music.

    I roll through Rdio. Every person in the office has an account so it’s fun to jump into what other people are listening to.

    # November 20, 2012 at 2:13 pm

    I listen to dubstep a lot.

    # November 20, 2012 at 7:04 pm

    Music in the office = great times coding…

    Until you look over at the guy banging his head and playing keyboard guitar, always comical.

    Has to be BBC Radio 6 Music – http://www.bbc.co.uk/6music/
    No ads, music from all corners and funny stuff too. Great for work.
