It's all about the playlists.

Anyone who owns an iPod knows what I mean. This is the most important shelf in my studio- the one that holds my iPod (and a few first aid items).

You set up playlists for various situations, for moods you want to create. Personally, I have about 8 different playlists, corresponding to various shop tasks. Lay-out, measuring and gluing boards all require mellow music, so that my concentration isn't interrupted.

But when it's time to sand, you can probably hear the music playing from a block away. It can't be loud enough, nor fast enough.

Here are a few tunes on some various playlists:

Mellow stuff

  • Heartbeats - Jose Gonz├ílez
  • 9 Crimes - Damien Rice
  • Send in the Clowns - Judy Collins
  • Safe and Sound - Sheryl Crow
  • In the Deep - Bird York
  • Car on a Hill - Joni Mitchell
  • Jung at Heart - Master Cylinder
  • Rain - Patty Griffin
  • Venetian Blue - Shawn Colvin
  • Because I told you so - Jonatha Brooke
  • Breathe Me - Sia
Sanding music

  • Run to you - Bryan Adams
  • Lose Yourself - Eminem
  • She's a Bitch - Missy Elliot
  • It's getting Hot in Here - Nelly
  • The Long Way Around - Dixie Chicks
  • Don't Fear the Reaper -Blue Oyster Cult
  • The Middle - Jimmy Eat World
  • Middle of the Road - the Pretenders
  • Ain't Nobody - Chaka Khan
  • Brown Eyed Girl - Van Morrison

What are your top ten?
