The music I am about to share with you is BY FAR the most potent ever designed for the purposes of doing productive knowledge work (ie: reading, writing, studying, homework, etc.) This will drastically increase your productivity, not to mention make you much more stoked about life.
If you know of a great studying soundtrack that I missed, share it with us in the comments section!
#1 – The Social Network Official Soundtrack
Composed by Trent Reznor (of Nine Inch Nails fame) and Atticus Ross, this soundtrack can make even the most menial tasks seem grandiose and important. While most of your projects aren’t going to IPO for billions of dollars, The Social Network soundtrack does a sublime job of convincing you that they just might.
-”A Familiar Taste”
-”Pieces Form the Whole”
-”Complication with Optimistic Outcome”
#2 – Rounders: Music From the Motion Picture
Rounders was essentially a movie about a card shark who owes money and then eventually finds a way to make up the money; yet the soundtrack made it seem like the most important thing in the world, and it can have the same effect on your labor of love. Seriously, this is the ultimate music for making your life seem cooler than it actually is.
-”Finger Up Your Spine”
#3 – The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo Soundtrack
Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross composed this soundtrack as well, and once again they do a stellar job of convincing you that your work is more than worthwhile. This album has more of a curious detective theme rather than that of a computer programmer.
-”Pinned and Mounted”
-”A Thousand Details”
-”Great Bird of Prey”
