I Recommend Some Songs that Will Boosting Mood at Work
One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.” ― Bob Marley
The reality is, not everyone can perform well while listening to the radio. You can’t focus on thinking about a single word while the conditions around your workspace are not conducive. Music is mostly a distraction for some people but sometimes can help you to release stress at work.
When I was an employee, my colleague each time playing her “pop dangdut koplo” playlists at her PC until the working hour was over. I asked why she told so and the answer relates to her work as Sales, which gave her stressed all day, and to her, listening to her playlists affect her performance. It became her habit every day.
A survey of more than 4,500 people by TotalJobs found 79% can boost their productivity by listening to music. According to music psychologist Dr Anneli Haake, who was involved in the research, this is partly because music can be a mental stimulant and when people become stimulated by the work they are doing, their performance can increase.
I agree with the source above. Any kind of music we like will lift the mood for performing at work. Some prefer quiet and some prefer loud music. Well, it all depends on our interests. In this case that has happened to me, I would prefer music that is uplifting over quiet music because it is upbeat, energetic, a little faster, adding too many guitar plus piano elements will keep me focused on the PC.
Working is a challenge. You have to be aware of your goals there. Whether you are happy or dying inside, the only solution that you needed the most is to hear music.
Here are my recommendations. So, play your Spotify, put your headphones on, turn up the volume, and start working on it!
Incubus — “Drive”
But lately, I am beginning to find… That when I drive myself my light is found.
The lyric tells if you “lost” you will find a way. I directly relate this song to the struggles when at work. It helps me to clear mind and stay focus.
Sade — “Keep Looking”
It’s no use sitting down… Don’t walk ‘round with a frown Oh no… keep looking.
It can be about keeping your head up and don’t let them bother you to stay focus.
The Byrds — “Turn!Turn!Turn (To Everything There Is A Season)”
To everything (turn, turn, turn)… There is a season (turn, turn, turn)… And a time to every purpose, under heaven.
Thanks to Spotify. I finally found a hit from the 1960s music and has been played every day on my playlist. This song gave me stabilize my self and to not worry about time at work. Well, A time to talk, there will be plenty of time if you’re all done.
Michael Jackson — “ Beat It”
Just beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it…No one wants to be defeated.
I think the term “beat it” according to this signifies you and others both have a clear vision and want to beat each other. It’s true, sometimes in this situation, you won’t nor can’t be their rival but you want to progress for your work once in a lifetime so you have to do it. This song could say it all but still, compete fairly not war. It always happens a lot in the world of work, get used to it.
One Republic -” Counting Stars”
Everything that kills me makes me feel alive…Lately, I been, I been losin’ sleep Dreamin’ about the things that we could be…
Sometimes you need to give up your free time to work tirelessly if you want a reward for your work. Exhausted but that’s what work do, right?
Queen — “Don’t Stop Me Now”
Don’t stop me now, I’m having such a good time I’m having a …
Nothing specific about this meaning. It can be about focusing on your work and you like having time with it, feeling no worries. What I like the best about this song is the guitar played cheerfully and the vocal of Freddie Mercury that would punch your mood.
U2 – “Where The Streets Have No Name”
I want to run, I want to hide…I want to tear down the walls that hold me inside…I wanna reach out and touch the flame…Where the streets have no name…
I agree that rock music is a true cure here. This song can be open to many ways of interpretation. But in my opinion, it’s giving you a meaning you can’t give up easily.
Journey – ”Don’t Stop Believin”
Don’t stop believin’…Hold on to the feelin’…Streetlights, people…,
Thumbs up with Steve Perry, it is the best 80’s song ever, timeless, people still praise them. I recognized this song when I was in elementary school, watching MTV Classic with my brothers. This song gives positivity and energy to people who believe they have faith and they can do it until it’s done.
Incognito – “Don’t You Worry About A Thing”
Everybody’s got a thing…But some don’t know how to handle it…Always reachin’ out in vain…Just taking the things not worth havin’
You may know this song from every radio you have heard. The original of this sung by Stevie Wonder (honestly, I just found out from Google). So, you do realize these lyrics what is all about, right?
The Beatles – ”A Hard Day’s Night”
It’s been a hard day’s night, and I’ve been working like a dog…
Forget the definition about it because some think this song is about the things I can’t share here, anyway, this is the coolest song always. You should enjoy the guitar and the drums they were playing, it is good for your mood. Praise for them!
The Bangles – “Manic Monday”
It’s just another manic monday…wish it was Sunday…‘Cause that’s my fun day…My I don’t have to run day…
How people hate Monday. It feels calm for a temporary break. Spent 2 days off without touching any work. However, continuing to Monday for work, like a loss of enthusiasm because we have to face a routine. This song speaks for when you’re having a great weekend that passes as fast as it arrives. You have to deal with the stress of the new week and try to work on time.
Foxes — ” Body Talk”
Let your body talk… Even when you feel so lost…Spinning when the tears, They fall, you gotta just let it go…
It’s suited for running or dance but you can apply it to other things, for example spending your time typing for the deadlines.
