Music you listen while working.

Recommended Posts

I find that a musical background has a big influence on gamedev work. I'll share a couple of them here and I'm curious to hear what are yours.

Youtube it's the main source because it has auto playlists that will continue playing relatively similar songs.

1)Energy/Inspiring music: 

Ellie Goulding - BURN

Welcome to Saint Tropez - a bit cheesy, I know, but it's a great motivator for getting that sweet green.

Ma Cherie

Can't stop the feeling

2 Hours of epic music

2)Chill/relaxed music that can be listened for hours, great for programming:

9 Hours Nature sounds - Overall one of the best nature sounds videos on the tube. 

Jaytech Music - Good, constant house music. It blends nicely in the background.

3)Hard stuff - instantly gives a  boost of mental energy.

Prodigy (playlist) - Need I say more?

Heavy/Nu/Alternative Metal (playlist) - really shakes you up.

....

there's also a fourth category of music - specific genre inspiration. Sci-fi soundtracks for sci-fi genres, epic soundtracks for action/brutal genres, medieval soundtracks for rpg's, etc.

I find to difficult to focus and coding to music with lyrics.
Here is my mind-clearing, brain-hammering playlist for coding:

(I do listen more "inspiring" music from medieval harp to ambient/relaxing type, epic movie soundtracks to native american drumming - for drawing.)

Same here, classical music or folk music, no lyrics. Really helps me think. I think I heard that too... but isn't that for developing children :huh:

Love Bach, especially the Brandeburg Concertos. Gives me a mental sophistication vibe. :)

Cool :D

I usually listen to Bach: brandeburg, english suites and lute suites, it depends on my mood :)

But also: The Cure, The Who and The Beatles, expecially Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.
And I've just realized I use Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band while programming since I was 12-13yo!
