    I prefer either songs I know really well so I can sing along to and not think about (no distraction and also no people in the room) or complete silence (noise cancelling headphones and all). Not programmer - just depends on what I'm working on.

    I'm also the sad type that will play the same song 20 times in a row or the same playlist over and over again.

    My partner mentions he likes to listen to trance music as it sets a good rhythm to work to.

    Personally I don't like any noise when I'm working, so it's always appreciated when the music lovers wear headphones in the office. 😊

    • This is why i put on headphones and turn on music 😊

      Background noise is so...irritating 🤪

      And @Krysten Gentile, me too i'm addicted to spotify, which let me jump from an artist to another.

      My tastes drive me from Epic Metal to humoristic italian groups like "Elio e le Storie Tese" to Luis Armstrong, from the Blues Brothers to Haggard 😀

      I created a playlist "Abap development" for this! 🤪

    People are really noisy here at my office so I have to wear headphones if I want a little of concentration. Maybe EDM songs or 80's power ballads are what I mostly use to hear, but actually I prefer complete silence, specially when I have to do debugging.

    Pd: Jelena.. Should I have started this with "According to me.." ? hehehe 😊

    I also hate office DJ, in my personal jukebox headphones edition it has everything from blues to heavy metal, depending on my mood, lately I need a extra laugh so I'm stuck to steel panther, Avenged Sevenfold when I'm in "this s*** must work" and George Ezra when I'm in learning mode.

    Cheers!

    Depending on the situation:

    • Enhancing FI-TV --> Metallica: St. Anger
    • Building highly unreadable and complicated generic code snippets --> Command and Conquer: Target
    • Getting lost whilst debugging the WDA framework --> The Benny Hill Show: Opening Theme
    • Investing additional time into Developing stuff for better user acceptance --> Neal Acree: A Hero's Sacrifice
    • About to achieve a breakthrough --> Two Steps from Hell: Victory

    ;-P

    Hi Ravi,

    your not the only one. When working in home office I'm often coding to music. Mostly electronic music by Tangerine Dream http://www.tangerinedream.org/ of Klaus Schulze http://www.klaus-schulze.com/welcome.htm. You can find a lot of both on Youtube.

    Regards,

    Dirk

    Hi Ravi,

    I don't code, however I do love to listen to music when I am moderating on the Community... Does that count??? 😊 I am currently obsessed with Spotify and have found myself jamming to a broader variety of genres like reggae and the 80s. Love hearing what others are into as well!

    for me, I like to listen to music while Iam writing a code but it sould be easy thing, for a complex program, I have to concentrate, otherwise, I will write music instead of ABAP code 😀
