The other day I put up a post, 4 Tools Under $20 a Month.  The comments were full of great tools that people feel make their workday more efficient / tolerable.  One such tool people invest in, which it never occurred to me to consider an asset or worthy investment, is music.

Music can have a myriad of effects: relax, inspire, joy, motivate, the possibilities are endless. Chances are great you play music to match your mood or to guide you in a different direction. Hence, the popularity of streaming music with Pandora, Spotify or Amazon Prime.

I connected with Stephanie Hudson of EnjoySweetTea.com and Michael Murphy aka MichealTheTechGuy.com and asked them both to create a playlist for you to enjoy.

From Stephanie: I have been on a kick of sort of “dreamy” electronica while working. I don’t get distracted by sing-along lyrics, and the tempo keeps my head bobbing and my energy up without being over the top. I just pick an artist or two I dig and let Pandora handle the playlist making, but here are some song’s I’ve enjoyed last week.


Michael’s theme was a Friday playlist.  I love this, as many of us work for ourselves, which mean, we never stop working, or is there any real difference between a Tuesday morning or Friday afternoon?  With this list you feel a Friday vibe.  Take a moment to celebrate the accomplishments of the week and to let go of the tough moments we bump into, either with client interaction or technology aggravation.

I figured I would create my own list to share.  I actually love silence and rarely listen to music while I work because before I know it I can be dancing at my desk.  Sometimes I need a song to get me pumped up (Walk of Life) or through a rough bit (I Won’t Back Down).

How about you?  Music at your desk?  Celebrate with tunes at the end of the day or week, or have a favorite song to get the creative juices flowing?  Share in the comments please.
