    I have a mindless data entry project I have to get done today and there's no way I get through this without some music. The dilema I'm having is that the type of music I normally listen to (rap and hard rock) really doesn't go to well with my office setting.

    What's everyone else listening to at work today? I'm in need of something mellow enough I don't offend the 45 year old mother of two that works next to me, but good enough I can keep interest in my project.

    45 eh? Probably a ton of Bon Jovi will be suitable.

    You must have misread my post. I'm not trying to lure her in to my office.

    Headphones are offensive to nobody.

    See, I've never seen anyone else here use headphones. Plus I don't have any at the office.

    I usually rock the sublime at work. The music is so mellow no one at work even cares to pay attention to the words they are actually saying.

    I am currently listening to some Irish folk-style music like Gaelic Storm and Scythian at work and none of my co-workers seem too upset, but it may want to make you go out and drink a few stouts at lunch. :smile:

    Is there a reason you can't use headphones?

    Use Spotify or Pandora and do like a 90's station.

    Bach fugues on harpsichord. You'll even feel smarter.

    Why would you want to listen to fugues on a Friday? Shouldn't that be music for the drive in to work on Monday morning?

    I would listen to Celtic music, the epic soundtracks station on Pandora, or something classic like O Fortuna. Not just the awesome beginning, but the whole thing. Some fun stuff in the middle.


    but really, headphones!

    Clonefan32 just likes to listen to music at a reasonable volume from 9 to 11 while collating, there's nothing unreasonable about that. I found a picture of Clonefan32 at work.

    All American Rejects on Pandora. (rock, but not hard rock) Not too offensive, but can listen to without pulling the rest of my hair out.
