    I always felt that listening to music on the earphones distracted me. But when I or a colleague played music at low volume on the computer, it always put me in a better mood at work :)

    Listening to music is fine as long as no one in your office abuses this privilege by blasting loud music from their earphones and thus subjecting their colleagues to total, utter misery day on end.

    They dont include rock'n roll as one of the options to choose from but they have dance/ambient?? Ridiculous

    I use Ambient and electronica to stimulate my drawing classes. Hardcore and punk for my own artwork as well as heavy labor.

    Mozart, Bach with some Chopin thrown in time to time.
    I work in a noisy cube farm and it is very difficult to avoid constant distraction.

    Mozart Requiem and Magic Flute are heavenly.... literally...

    I prefer jazz and world music. I'm a research scientist doing a lot of analyses and writing.

    Classical music, especially renaissance music is good for concentration and productivity at work.
    Adult Standards, Big Band (years 1900-1960) work also quite well.
