I don’t know about you, but I can’t code without music. It’s just something that I do in auto-pilot, right before writing any line of code I put my headphones on and start my music player.
Although I love lots of rock bands and different styles, when it comes to coding I’m very, very picky.
One of the first requirements is that it can’t have people singing, or at least keep it to the bare minimum. I just find music with lyrics too distracting at times. I tend to concentrate more and get more productive while listening to hypnotic or haunting songs.
