Songs can often have an immense effect on your mood and transport you to a new mindset immediately. We all have that one (or more) special song which de-stresses and motivates us. Just curious to know what songs fellow ProductHunters are listening to while they are making their awesome products.

Depends on the activity: Lo-Fi when I need to focus, and rock when I'm in a sprint 🔥

I read that listening to anything with lyrics in your own language is virtually impossible not to process, so anything classical or instrumental.

I seem to have read that too. Plus, i think classical music is supposed to stimulate the brain positively as well. So, great choice @jessica_gregson1

Lo-fi, classical, indie folk, acoustic playlists in the morning, and then in the afternoon I go for more energetic stuff like classic rock, 90s, electronic, etc.

I like listening to productivity music like binaural beats. Since I spent most of my time writing, listening to songs with words obstruct my thinking process.

@bogomep Rock (hard Rock) is not exactly my vibe. And I think they use Pentagram name for a while.

I think the majority of us here listen to Lo-Fi. The genre we all agree that boosts our productivity.

I have also seen some articles claiming that listening to 'video game music' while working/studying is supposed to help a lot to focus, since they are tailor-made to make the user concentrate on the game. Anyone here that does so ?

Lo-Fi when working. Helps focus better. But when I know what I am doing and can sprint then I listen to R&B

I always listen to Lo-Fi beats whenever I start working. It stimulates my brain to become more productive and focused than usual.

It varies. I was on a big punk pop and MCR kick last week. This week it's City Pop. Here's my current playlist

Lo-Fi is proven to increase dopamine levels and focus! My fav is Tony McGuinness deep sets!

Thrash metal for me keeps me plugging away. Revocation is on right now.

Lo-fi when I'm working on things which needs my full attention. Pop, Rock, EDM while doing easy things. Those that I can complete even when I'm half asleep. Podcasts while doing a totally boring work.

Oh depends so much on my mood, I try to listen to "relax" to keep focus, but many others moments I need an extra push of energy and I just click random energetic songs from Spotify! Also recently I tried Lofi cafe launched here in PH, and I really liked it!

Varies based on work - but for concentration something repetitive.
