Most of the music I listen to while doing work is energetic, yet subtle, mostly instrumental, or sung in a foreign language, and often it’s an album I’ve never heard before (I usually listen in complete albums).
However, there are some albums that break all of these rules and yet still work with work. These albums are by Lady Gaga and Rihanna.
I don’t know how they do it – maybe something about the girl power vibe motivates me to work harder. Even though that’s not what the lyrics are about. Ever.
The great thing about working late at night when I want to be asleep is that I’m less likely to procrastinate, whether in the form of tidying my room, checking my email, or…having personal dance parties. You know, for the most part.
