The Power of Music

I need specific music for certain situations.

When I’m writing, I rarely have music on.  I find it distracting most of the time.  If I have to have on headphones (like when writing in the airport) I’ll put on classical music, without words.  Usually, though, no music is best for writing.

I like to have on lighter music at work.  Typically, I have the Sarah Bareilles Pandora station on in the background at my desk.  If it’s too quiet at work, I can’t concentrate as well.

I have to have high energy music for cleaning, and it’s good for cooking, too.  Without something upbeat, my energy for getting things done is much lower.

The only requirement for driving, especially long drives, is something I can sing along with.

How do you use music in your life?
