What are you listening to while you code/work?

captainellie profile image Captain Ellie ・1 min read

It's another day of work and you have an endless "To-Do" list that seems to grow with every minute. You plug in your headphones or connect to that BT speaker and press play. What's playing? What gets you into that work zone? Is it the therapeutic sounds of lo-fi beats? Or maybe you've been listening to Japanese '80s pop music? Perhaps, you're a fan of Franzl Lang - Germany's famous yodeler! Maybe, you've been gifted with the sounds of an upstairs neighbor WHO SEEMS to BE INVOLVED IN BOWLING PRACTICE DURING THE DAY! 😤

Anyways, we want to know! We want the music, podcasts, sounds, etc. you've been listening to get you in that productive zone!

I like to listen to LoFi Pretzel Rocks when I'm streaming, because it feeds into the feeling, but I listen to a special inspiration list on Spotify when I'm working offline.

Also, I made a YouTube video for April Fools. It's kind of like a coding music video?

Lately my "Getting Stuff Done" music has been Trixie Mattel. I did my taxes to the dulcet tones of a drag queen country star. But a lot of the time I watch Twitch or YouTube while working haha

Listening to Trixie Mattel now for the first time! I'm really liking it! I'm thinking the world needs an Orville Peck and Trixie Mattel collab!

I listen to a lot of Brazilian and/or instrumental music when I'm heads down. When I'm not super pressed for time, though, my go-to is always showtunes! On stream, I use T-Pain's Pizzle Pack for background music.

I find myself listening to the same thing with whatever I'm doing.

Recently this has been my playlist:

Man on the Moon III - Kid Cudi
Mystic Stylez - Three 6 Mafia
The Life of Pi’erre 4 - Pi’erre Bourne

Often, I don't listen to anything. Sometimes I will put a show on that I can watch passively, mostly following it through dialogue.

Sometimes I will listen to audio books, and sometimes I will listen to music, though what I listen to on any given day can vary tremendously from 1980s music to show tunes to modern pop and country, to anything in between.

I listen to a lot of EDM, mostly Yellow Claw, Nicky Romero, and Afrojack whilst coding. It keeps me pumped up always, and Avicii to top it off. Just the perfect blend.
