How do you add some excitement to your day? Personally, I can’t get through the day without music. Well, of course I can, but why would I want to? New music can be especially exciting.
Music speaks to my soul. Whether I am happy, sad, angry, or need a lift in spirits, music is there for me.
Lately I’ve been listening to the same album over and over and over again. It’s just beginning to get old. When I say the same album I mean Beyoncé by Beyoncé and when I say lately I mean ever since it came out two months ago. It’s great and all, but I’m tired of just about everything else saved on my phone and admittedly getting tired of that too.
I was already planning on posting a work playlist on my blog today when someone on Twitter asked all her followers (of which I am included) what we listen to during work. It’s funny how the internet work like that. Also, when I say today I mean yesterday. I haven’t gone to bed yet, so it’s still Monday right? Right? It’s only 15 minutes after midnight in California and I was running around a lot today.
All this to say my boyfriend shared a new work playlist he made on Spotify with me last week and I got permission to share it here. It’s mellow, but there are some energetic tunes in there too. In Paul’s own words, “It goes from indie/electro to dance and then down to soul and mellow tracks.” I actually went back and got that quote from a text like a the weirdo I am.
My favorite songs on the playlist are by Wild Nothing, Blood Orange, AlunaGeorge, St. Vincent and Arcade Fire.
What about you? What do you like to listen to when you’re at work?

I agree, Beyonce is pretty great! For some reason, Taylor Swift just helps me work…I don’t know why! But I also like listening to pretty mellow bands when I work, like Washed Out or Explosions in the Sky. Also Drake, but Drake is appropriate for all occasions.
I love Washed Out! I’ve never heard of Explosions in the Sky, but I’ll have to check them out.
At my boutique they play this upbeat alternative music I can NOT get enough of! I love Arcade fire, and Vampire Weekend, and Alt-J and Arctic Monkeys and oh the list goes on. In fact I’m typing to Cousins by VW right now :)
Those all sound good. Alt-J sounds vaguely familiar. I’ll have to look it up though! Thanks for the recommendation. :)
Lots of liquid drum n bass like Netsky or House such as John Digweed. Great list – will be enjoying this at work too ;) Have a great one Erin! -Iva
Awesome! You too, Iva! We’re about halfway to the weekend.
Who doesn’t love Beyoncé? And, I must say that the new Arcade Fire is great for when you’re trying to get through the workday. Every song on Reflektor is just so upbeat!
Yes, my sentiments exactly.
