What’s your office soundtrack?

When you’re busy – up against deadlines, under the kosh – there’s nothing better than sticking on your headphones and letting your tunes smooth your day.

But what music make your work day more productive?  Calm Classical? Or pumping Techno?! We asked around and got some great music, as soundtracking the offices of some of the web’s leading peeps.

Get involved, why not share the music that makes your office soundtrack?

Lorde – Team
