Worktime Playlist: Volume 1

It is rare that I work in silence, like to have a podcast or music always playing in while I’m at the computer and I’ve got those special songs that can really get me going, make me type a little fast, think a little sharper or create a little smarter.

I was curious to see what some of you listened to when your takin’ care of business! Check out these awesome playlists, you can click any linked song title for the digital download at – when available (as low as 89 cents and DRM free!)
