Discussion on: Do you associate music with any fond coding memories?

Back in 2014 I was working together with the best programmer I have met to this day. He was as crazy as he was good. During one of our way-too-often "it needs to be done by tomorrow, but we have a week of outstanding work" codathons, a couple of trends hit all at once: we had standing desks and we decided not to sit down until it's done. He blasted a 5 hour dubstep playlist and soon we were hacking away to the beats as if they dictated our typing. I remember being completely in the zone for hours and none of us spoke a word for most of the night. Although exhausting, it was a magical experience.
