DO NOT ABUSE THE TAGS TO GET ATTENTION!

DOING SO DEFEATS THEIR PURPOSE!

Tag it as #discussion and other relevant tags. The tags #angular, #javascript, #react & #csharp aren't relevant to this discussion in any way.

Ok, the writer corrected it. Read on folks ⏬ 🙂

Right now, 'Mindtraveller' by Falconer. The lyrics fit perfectly with the mentality of diving deep into code hunting down bugs, and I find the beat to be just about the right pace to help keep me focused.

Generically though, lots of European power metal, symphonic metal, and folk metal with a dash of chiptune and techno.

I never listen to songs that I know (it just makes me focus on lyrics) so I always go to random playlist and play random songs 🌻

I'm everywhere, but I really like downtempo lo-fi - more atmosphere than music, I guess.

I'll kickoff an all-day auto-playlist from DJ Shadow, Ryan Celcius, or Cut Chemist and be good.

Way Out West - Domination

It's quite long, so it has a long intro.... but please wait for the sound bite: "Madness, Power, Domination"

Works also great with any FPS game...
