Musical shenanigans

I'm one of those people who tends to work better when there's something to listen to. And like some writers, I will listen to a track or a playlist over and over again in order to keep the inspiration flowing.

This iTunes playlist really has been around for quite some time - at least a year, I'd say. I've just trimmed out a few tracks that wore out their welcome. Mainly, though, this list exists to be expanded, and I'm always on the lookout for new tracks to try or old ones to revisit.

This is the music that accompanies me whether I'm writing for work or for play.

The highlighted track is Jonathan Coulton's "Space Doggity", an homage to David Bowie's "Space Oddity" that's also a tribute to Laika, the first dog in space and the first martyr of space. I'll be looking out for you among the stars, you sweet puppy you.

If you're allowed to listen to music at work, what do you like to listen to? Do you segregate your playlists for work, play, exercise, or whatever it is you do?

since i'm not allowed to listen at work...I usually listen while on the road. My kind of music would be rock, alternative, techno, trance and house (wow that was a mouthful XD) it keeps my blood pumping and energizes me for the daily grind (real life lol)
