Working to music

I spend much of my time working from home, and one of the big benefits is that I can listen to music of my choice, all day long. And since Spotify has come on the scene, this means I’ve got access to an incredible library of recordings, that can keep me going when my energy levels sag.

If you’re like me, you’ll have ‘go to’ albums, songs or playlists, that you know will give you the kick to get something started. In contrast, there’s music that’s calming and helps with concentration – for me, instrumental film soundtracks often fill this niche.

I’m intrigued as to whether what I actually write depends on the music I was listening to at the time. I’ve not done any scientific research into this, but I suspect that the choice of vocabulary must be influenced by the songs I had playing, at least to a small extent.

And by the way, this blog was written to the accompaniment of Thomas Dolby, The Golden Age of Wireless. Could you tell?
