Discussion on: What kind of music do you listen to while coding? 🎧

Tom Stine for any type of environmental or "zen" type sound (singing bowls, Japanese garden, etc). If I need to up my tempo, hard driving bass helps. And a trick to get your brain to minimize outside distractions (and even thoughts): make a short playlist of songs you know really well. Put on repeat. By the second repeat, you will quit singing along and start to block out the words. And some of your own distracting thoughts. :) Also works well with songs in a language you don't know.
