Offer Up a Playlist of Songs to Work To


Recommended Posts

Not "What are you listening to now" from 2007, but a decent playlist of songs you listen to while working on something using PDN.

 

Maybe help others learn about more good, Indie, or classic music out there. If it's not a violation of the rules, post a Youtube link to the video so we can find it and check it out. (Just in case, I'm not actually activating the links...one can copy and paste utube links anyone adds)

 

Maybe some of us can find smore tunes we didn't know about, from others.

 

This is one of the playlists I often resort to but I have about 20 of them....and about 37K songs.

Here's one of my playists I often listen to on my media player:

 

 

(I LOVE a lot of Indie Folk)

 

Dreaming by Perfume Tree

 

Anyway the Main Thing Is

 

Never Been to Spain

When I'm working, I usually just listen to rain sounds.  It's very good white noise.

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

I tried the rain track today. It worked well.

Funny things though:

- Every time I heard thunder, I instinctively pressed the Save button in the editor.

and

- At the end of the day, I saw clear skies as I left the building and I thought to myself, "oh, the rain must have stopped."

:D

Both my exact experiences!  Part of why I use that site fairly often.  The downside is, I listen to it fairly loudly, so when I pull off my headphones it almost feels painful as the sound stops so suddenly...

I literally have thousands of songs and quite a lot of full albums on my HDD. I simply drag a folder into Foobar2000 and play away while I work. Having said that, it's hard to beat Pink Floyd's "Dark Side Of The Moon" album for any project.............

I'm a big Jesper Kyd fan. I have quite a few albums on my MP3 player - which my work colleagues are quite tired of :mrgreen:

Hey, I decided to check Jesper Kyd out (I'm always on the look-out for great music, regardless of any genre.) If that's the same one who wrote some of the soundtracks for Assassin's Creed, I have 3 of those selections already. They are extremely beautiful. I have them with my Hans Zimmer stuff. I didn't know the name of the composer was Jesper Kyd, though. So, thanks for putting that out there.

ScrapbookWithPDN! Many thanks. Some really listen very well. Thank you very much. v8ef5k8f.gif

Hi, Seerose. I'm so glad you found something on there you liked.  That's why I say post music tunes you cruise along to while working with PDN. (I figured I couldn't be the ONLY one who plays the tunes while 'doin' stuff'.)  Maybe some of us can find something we wouldn't otherwise know about. Even if it's not something one may like, another is bound to. It's win/win.

 

Here's 3 more on my playlist I didn't add that I cruise along to while doing stuff on PDN:

 

Some may remember this from the car chase scene in The 5th Element:

 

Gotta love the Gypsy Kings:

and this beautiful song by Hans Zimmer, "Nyah"

2000+ songs, hand-selected, all 3+ stars on a 5-star scale. Organized by overarching categories and sorted by band. Mostly 90's rock and metal. Rock is as soft as Phil Collins and metal is as strong as Dragonforce / Pantera. Not much indie or rap at all. 3 country songs. Ratings may be outdated as I change them often. Dig in; anybody will find something they like.
