It is a rainy day in Phoenix. I got into the office early and rifled through some CDs to pick some appropriate mood music. My choice? Aaron Copland's "Appalachian Spring."
Although I have pretty eclectic tastes in music, Copland has the consistent capacity to transport and uplift. [When I was in the Army, I used to listen to "Rodeo" and "Billy The Kid" when homesick for Arizona.]
Some lean toward pop music, the blues or hard rock to get the work day going. There may even be some rap or hip hop fans out there.
Do you have a particular type of music or musician that helps you get the job done?
