What do you guys like to jam on during your coding?
As a programmer, I always like to listen to music so I don't go crazy and be the weird dude in my library when my code doesn't work. Right now I like to listen to some 'Vintage Postmodern' goodness, how about you guys? what do you guys like to listen to?

Instrumentals only when it comes to coding and blogging. A former co worker introduced me to TYCHO and I love it.

Mostly my headphones on, listening to the same 3-4 songs on repeat – Theme from Picnic at the Hanging Rock is my current #1. I know Ben Deitch is always listening to Herbie Hancock's Chameleon.
I find that good old Krafwerk is great for coding. Most of their songs are about tech and sound very futuristic and binary :D But anything from techno to my always favorite SKA music will do for me. And of course Rammstein.

For more background sounds, I like ambient mixer (my favorite is the Hufflepuff common room) https://harry-potter-sounds.ambient-mixer.com/hufflepuff-commonroom
I have a playlist on Spotify that is Fall Out Boy - From the beginning. I just loaded up the albums in order (which is easy to do in Spotify) ...and I just hit play.
The progression of their music, the way the vocals are used with the instrumentals, and the natural progression of them becoming more refined and comfortable with their talents is also a bit comforting to me. It's a bit like when I first started learning to code, getting better and better. Also, the progression of a project... a bit wiry, gaining structure, then substance, then a beautifully refined and functional masterpiece...all interconnected.
Hans Zimmer FTW! :)
