Try anime openings songs, lyrics won't affect as you won't understand a thing :P and there's full range of bits, I find it specially good for when I'm needing a performance boost.

System Of a Down + a Red Bull is a great convo when the dead line is coming over :D


You should check out Sean Schafianski on Spotify, he does modern rearrangements of old video games or re-arrangements of new ones, like "Jazz Arrange Version: Octopath Traveler".



What if it does affect him? He could have the lang.Japanese.*; library imported....


"Can't stop" by Red Hot Chili Peppers also works well when deadline starts knocking the door ๐ŸŽธ

Great reminder! I used to use brain.fm/. Their music is designed for reaching mental states. You can get more informations here: brain.fm/science
I had the luck to buy a lifetime membership for less than a year costs now when they were in their beginnings. But 50$ / yr is also fair in my opinion. I recommend to give it a try.


Most of presented playlists is not suitable for programming, specially when you work at pressure. so i think it is better for each developer to progressively listen tracks and delete ones who not good for him at work. sorry for english.


Hey @ben , thanks for sharing this! Super cool to hear my music is good coding music. Cool to see so many suggestions here as well.

I'm getting back into some coding projects after a few month of a music hiatus, so finally replying to this!

If you like coding to ambient music, this artist, Lowercase Noises is EXCELLENT:

Fittingly, I discovered Lowercase Noises on tonethreads.com (website I built / run)


I just heard "underground," "sounds," and "La Lune".
Definitely worth adding to my playlists and following him!
Just awesome how the combination of so simple beats creates a nice variety that doesn't get boring over time ๐Ÿ‘


Try this out. Mostly without lyrics but with a more interesting rhythm.


Reminds of a T shirt I saw at a conference. It said "Good Programming Is 3% Talent And 97% Not Getting Distracted By The Internet" :-)


You could also use zenmix.io or spaces.fm . Both provide a selection of ambient sounds and you can mix your own. Also good for meditations :-)


Wow this is great timing for me. I was just browsing spotify looking for some good focus music that isn't distracting. Going to give it a listen now!


If nothing else, I just love the name. Will give this a listen, I think it's just as important to change up the background audio while working just like any other play list.


Ooh. Good, I'm gonna give this a try. If you like hard rock, you can also give this playlist a try.

I listen to this when I need to get pumpep up. ๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿผ


Thanks for this, Ben, this will help me greatly. I bet you have a great taste in music too by the way it seems!


I recommend music from Monofรณnicos Netlabel. Music from Colombia.
Spotify: spoti.fi/1ajqh2x
Deezer: bit.ly/DeezerMNF


I have a power metal playlist that I cycle periodically when I'm coding. And a classic rock one, and one of electro swing.

Even music you love can become boring if repeated way too often.
