    What do you listen to at work?

    I just wanted to share a few of the sites I use each day to keep the buzz going. Would love to hear what other people use.

    • iHeartRadio: I have to get my fill of Brotha Wease each morning. This motley group is live from 6-11am EST during the week. They get into some funny conversations!
    • Nature Sounds: Now I know some of you might find this funny, but nothing mellows out a tense office environment like the sound of a gentle creek with birds chirping away. This got me through a number of days this past winter! Actually got the office energy to come down by tossing this on.
    • Freakonomics is one of my favorite Podcasts. These guys do a great job filling your brain with culture, economics, and psychology. They list 164 episodes. Go Nuts!
    • Stereomood is a free music streaming service that plays music tailored to your mood.
    • Shoutcast: Huge collection of radio shows from Old time radio programs, news, Aliens and music.
    • And my favorite is Grooveshark. Just choose your favorite musician and listen away. No commercials!

    Re: What do you listen to at work?

    The last few years I have gotten into trip hop music while working. It is generally very calming to me. I like using Pandora, although it is somewhat limited, because it helps me find other artists that appeal to me. Massive Attack is one of my favorites.

    Re: What do you listen to at work?

    Oddly, although I love music, I can't have it play while I'm working.

    I'm so laser focused on what I'm doing, yet always multi-tasking at the same time and music just sort of distracts me or something. It bugs me, so I have to work in the sound of silence to be at full concentration.

    I'm trying to take more breaks to do short workouts though and then I often play a Youtube music video to watch and listen to.

    Here is my fav lately - Great workout vid/music mashup

    Moves Like Jagger + The Frozen Planet

    @ Michael: Try trip hop playlist - Stereomood - turn your mood into music
    @Linda: Yeah. I defiantly need that silence when I need to be dialed in as well.

    I have a few youtube queries bookmarked that use the ",long" query and pull up long sets of music. Mostly hippie stuff because it fades into the background nicely, sometimes howard stern interviews. I habitually sign up for marketing webinars and put those in the background if they are not something that is at the top of my topic interest list. I also have ESPN radio live stream bookmarked but I dont listen to that much anymore.
