do you listen to music when you work?

This is the place for readers of poetry. Discuss poetry and literary art. You can also discuss music here, including lyrics. Also, you can discuss poets themselves, in addition to poetry.

I used to listen to music to block out other noise. When I was in school my siblings would be too loud so I'd crank up the music and put earbuds in.

Now I just try to get stuff done as quick as possible because I have kids. Music would slow me down.

I do listen to music when I work! Its actually been recently proven that when the brain has a familiar sound in the background it does not work as hard and improves efficiency! Personally it help me a lot especially when I’m stressed

I do listen to music when I work on certain things and it has to be really quite around me to work if it’s not then I listen to soothing music

I listen to classical music before I go to bed or while doing something complex. I can't focus on my work if I listen to music. It doesn't matter the type of music. Sad but true.
Heart! We will forget him!
You an I, tonight!
You may forget the warmth he gave,
I will forget the light.

When you have done, pray tell me
That I my thoughts may dim;
Haste! lest while you're lagging.
I may remember him!

Emily Dickinson

yes very much. I listen to very often to music to keep inspired and keeps me running on the go whenever i want. for once I listen to music even while I'm sleeping. it does feel strange in a good way at the same time it feels good to listen to your favourite songs.

Yes I do. It helps me to keep productive when I do something. Music always keeps me alive and enthusiastic when I feel weak. It also gives me ideas when I ran out of ideas.

I have a bunch of 90 minutes classical and baroque playlists I listen to while planning or marking (I'm a teacher). When that 90 minutes is up I take a break and then play a different playlist. The music helps keeps me focused and energized. Plus I like that I know that when it stops, I stop.
