Discussion on: Should I listen to music while coding?

Cool that you had handwritten lyrics! Most of the songs I listened to were in English which isn't my native language so listening what was said came at a later age :P.

During coding songs with lyrics and sudden noises (AC/DC :P) are distracting. But what helps me concentrate more are more monotonous (in a good way) albums. Such as for example "Tripping with Nils Frahm".

Also what is interesting is the research that shows: "A moderate level of ambient noise is conducive to creative cognition."

It's from the website coffitivity which has options to set background noise just as if you are in a cafe.
