    That's pretty hard core. Looks like I'll need a good pair of headphones to isolate the sound at work!

    @bewatermyfriend actually that'd be a good band name 🤣

    Maybe I'm weird, but I find that old-school spaced out stoner music without a lot of lyrics works well to get into and maintain a flow. Things like early-70's Pink Floyd, Spacemen 3, etc. It can work well for insomnia too. I don't normally listen to that crap any other time though. :-)
    Apart from that my listening is eclectic, but I generally listen to songs with words when doing something boring, and w/o words (typically either classical or the above-mentioned stoner tunes) when doing something that requires concentration. Nothing beats silence for extreme concentration though. :-)

    Type in "chill mix" on YouTube. The ones by KoalaControl, MrSuicideSheep, ChillYourMind, etc. are really soothing. They're about an hour long and good enough to let you focus on work.
    Otherwise, meditation music also works best when you don't want music with lyrics. Try out the zen music tunes on YouTube.

    @Marl3x I completely forgot about the 'shroom. I put on "Army of Mushrooms" for late night sessions.
