What Music Do You Code To?Filed Under Human Factors
I have two music styles I listen to when I code: Hardstyle/Drum and Bass Electronic or Punk/Ska. I am a punk rocker by nature; however, I really enjoy the rhythmic and lyric-less electronic music. In either case, I can zone it out really well while still giving me a jolt of energy.
Here is my current playlist for both genres:
- Massiv in Mensch
- Daft Punk
- Benassi Bros.
- DJ XO (Bassdrive)
- DJ Citrik
- DJ Deception (Bassdrive)
- Hardstyle Tunes (iTunes comp)
- Ultimate Hardstyle (iTunes comp)
- Streetlight Manifesto
- Bouncing Souls
- The Vandals
- A New Found Glory
- Blink 182
- Less Than Jake
- Me First and the Gimme Gimmes
- Mustard Plug
- Operation Ivy
I am all music or no music type of guy, nor do I have certain genres based on mood or tasks. If I am coding I am listening to music, if I am problem solving or deep in thought the music gets paused.
By the way, coding to music is not the same if I don’t have my Skull Candy Headphones. These headphones are where it’s at. Do yourself a favor and pick up a pair of the Skull Crushers.
Now it’s your turn – keep the meme alive by blogging your playlist or leave it in the comments if you are a blog-less soul.
