Over the last few days I've been listening to those "science" curated playlists: ones supposedly designed to make you more creative, more productive, that sort of thing.
Up until that point, however, I was a big fan of electronic dance music.
The logic, at least in my head, was that the pace of the music would wake me up a little and help make me a little productive. Tracks that didn't contain lyrics would also stop my brain from wandering or getting distracted by language, which is helpful when you're trying to organise your own thoughts for an article.
I developed the habit working midnight shifts, back when my job was to summarise newspapers and read through page after page of monotonous drivel.
What music do you listen to on a daily basis, and what do you listen to when you're at work?
