What kind of music do you like to listen to while you’re working?

Usually Classic Rock hits the spot.March 5, 2013 at 10:48 am #15390
Music: classic rock or, better yet, iPod played through my Bosch power cube.
Radio: sports talk. This is actually the majority of our listening.March 5, 2013 at 10:50 am #15391
Ken, how do you like the power cube?March 5, 2013 at 10:54 am #15393
I usually listen to the country station or play gospel or hymns from my ipod.

+1 for hymns Dan. I mentioned classic rock before because i enjoy the instruments and beats that most songs provide as opposed to the lyrics. However, occasionally i will have my ipod also plugged in as you mentioned and will throw on Christian Rock through pandora or music from my personal collection. Sometimes it just depends on my mood i guess 🙂 Sometimes i need the drums and electric guitar, other times i enjoy humming hymns and praises to my Lord and Savior.March 5, 2013 at 2:47 pm #15434
i definitely enjoy listening to a wide array of Christian music as well – rap, gospel, hymns, etc

Nick & John, I enjoy a mix of traditional hymns and contemporary Christian music too. I find the traditional hymns usually have the most depth to them though. The older hymns aren’t really upbeat for working to but it’s hard to beat some of the profound truths from Scripture that are in them. Sometimes listening to a hymn about the reality of what the Lord Jesus has done to pay the penalty for our sins is more energizing than a song that is upbeat.

yeah there is definitely a lack of theological depth in some/many contemporary songs
John SMarch 5, 2013 at 9:36 pm #15491
Just about anything except heavy metal
I love Mexican music that gets me in the
Mood to drink
So I tend to stay away from that until the job
Is complete and I don’t have to work the next day

Dan, I agree. Didn’t expect this topic to come up on this forum, although, i am glad it did. It’s good to know you have brothers in Christ out there. Do you have a fav Christian band\singer?March 6, 2013 at 10:29 am #15548
For sure Nick, it’s always great to come across another brother or sister in Christ. Some of my favorite singers would be Kristyn Getty, Michael Card and Keith Green. I like some of Casting Crowns music too. I don’t know if I have one favorite singer but those are a few of the ones I like. Do you have a favorite?
danpattison.comMarch 6, 2013 at 1:22 pm #15595
I dont have many favorites when it comes to most aspects of life, but regarding “Christian” artists: Kutless, switchfoot, jeremy camp, POD, newsboys, dc talk, are some of my top ones.March 6, 2013 at 3:56 pm #15646
I like Chris Rice for easy listening, thoughtful tunes.
David Wilcox for the ‘story’ songs.
I’ll listen to Country Radio as long as they don’t repeat songs.
That right there will drive you nuts.March 9, 2013 at 2:13 pm #16074
