Discussion on: Should I listen to music while coding?

There are two types of music I prefer on work days.

  1. Stuff I can sing along - This is during the breaks when I need to calm down and distract myself from the work.

  2. Stuff I can't understand - This is when I code. It it great for concentration I believe. Wanting to sing along can be distracting for me if I really need to focus. So I prefer songs in other languages or fast paced raps which are hard to keep up with.

Listening to music is an essential part of my work. If not for any other purpose, it's great for noise cancellation.
