If so, what media you used? Ipod, mp3 player, radio streaming, head/earphone, or do you have a small speaker in the office where everyone in the room can listen the music you are playing? I listen to musice with the last one, my friends even asked me to play music if I forgot to play it in the other day. Music is needed to make their work less boring and ease us up. Sometimes, there are also bosses who would not allowed their employee to listen music beacuse it can ruin his focus or we could not hear they calling. How about you?

I believe that music is one of the most important part of the human experience, and I can┬Ęt see me passing one single day, without listening to music, either I am at work, eating, cooking, or anything. Since I work at home, I use my stereo and spekers, that way, I can move freely around the house.

there are times that i listen to music while working. if i wanna work faster, i use earphone and go with the beat. i have a french colleague who took a video of me one time. i was surprised because it was so funny. sometimes colleagues play a variety of their choice. i don't really mind it unless it's too loud and the one who plays it isn't around. it's always safer to use the headset/earphone to do away with complaints. enjoy your music!

You have a french colleague? cool! Where do you live cheiyen? With "go with the beat" I think means nod your head along with the music or humming the notes :) Yes, it's safer to hear with earphones but in my office I am the only one who has speaker, so I become somewhat a "DJ" since I have many songs in my external harddisk...

I spend most of my time stuffed in a corner just me and a Mac so I play my CDs on the iTunes that's on there. Sometimes, especially lately since work has been really slow, it's the only thing that keeps me from going bananas because I can time my day by repeating the CD. Three more and I can go home...two more and I can go home.... ONE MORE!!!!

Yes I have to have music playing while I work because I just can't work any other way . I just put a cd in our home theater system and listen to the music while I clean the house .

It will be nice if I can be able to listen to the music when I am working, but this is not allowed. I love China
