The best songs to code to

A frequent topic of discussion (read arguement) at our offices is “who chooses the music?”

We are a mixed group of ages and demographics… and our music tastes vary considerably. We got inspired by Mashable’s recent post about ‘The Best Songs To Code To” and wanted to pay tribute to some of ours.

Jimmy is a head WP developer:

Digitally Imported Chillout stream, I pretty much only code to that: http://www.di.fm/CHILLOUT 

Sublime chillout downloadable freely: http://www.kahvi.org/releases.php?release_number=203

Also, Carbon Based Lifeforms – “Silent Running” or “Or Plan B” are absolutely astounding to me.

Jonah is a manager:

Anyone else remember the horribl(y awesome?)e Starbucks commercials from a couple of years ago where a chorus would sing “Eye of the Tiger” with the beat replaced by someone’s name?

edit- Youtube is the collective consciousness of our time. http://youtube.com/watch?v=14qeu7JRwt0Apparently it’s not a chorus, but actually Survivor. Wow, my childhood memories could have done without this trauma.

Whatever puts you in the zone to work — just make sure you aren’t hindering others around you.
