favorite programming music

Recommended Posts

I love to listen to this while programming http://grooveshark.com/#!/album/Little+Joy/2892128

(for the Germans: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/scilors-groovesharktm-unl/feegenemlbjkbnfpgdmjddbeiecdbpob?hl=en-US&utm_source=chrome-ntp-launcher)

Edit: meanwhile I listened to the songs you posted. They are great, but don't think I could focus on programming with them :D

edit2: right now this is what I'm listening to http://grooveshark.com/#!/album/Not+Music/5149661

Possibly because I am a sound engineer by original trade, I really don't like stuffing things in my ears. But then, in my "office" I do have a couple of grands worth of speakers and several sets of professional studio headphones

(You can tell they are pro, because they are twice the quality and halt the price of the domestic equivalent. Hardly trendy though.)

Greetings Everyone,

Not a complete list, but some of my favorites while working (or other times):

- Andrew Bird

- Nick Drake

- Keren Ann

- Leonard Cohen

- Nick Cave

- Tom Waits

- Beth Orton

- Bach's solo cello / sonatas & partitas for violin

- Beethoven's late string quartets

By the way, I have a Sonos system, which I will endorse strongly for anyone who loves music! Check it out here -> http://www.sonos.com/

Thanks,

Matthew

Three, actually.

Das ist cool...

I had a very laid back German Colleague years ago, with a slightly strange high pitched voice. His English was perfekt, but every time he like something he would nod slowly and say "Das is cool... sehr cool...ya?"

It used to send the German voice overs we worked with into fits of laughter, which he found very puzzling.

He went back to Germany about ten years ago - no idea what they thought of him on his return! :)

Interesting topic.. and mvsic.net looks totally cool, by the way! :)

My current coding playlist is a combination of ZZ Top (songs from La Futura mostly), 

 and Maximum The Hormone.

Other than that, 

 (a 25 minute dark ambient track by Norwegian black metal artist Burzum) is one of my all-time favorites. This one really helps when trying to get into a flow state.

@Diogo.

And if I want jazz, I just have to spin round on my chair and play the piano that is behind me!
