Music for Entering or Staying in “The Zone”

The zone.  It’s that special place where you find the ability to intensely focus and compress large workloads or complex tasks.  Good music can help, whether its classical, inspirational, ambient, or just familiar.  I often listen to music with no vocals to minimize the distractions surrounding my cubicle.

Here are a few oft-played tracks on my system courtesy of Grooveshark as an example:

I also listen to SomaFM – you should be able to find channels there for your particular taste, such as:

Groove Salad
Space Station Soma
Mission Control
Suburbs of Goa
Drone Zone
Underground 80s

Sometimes you want to listen to a specific track immediately.  The GrooveSelect and Search GrooveShark bookmarklets will instantly cue it up.

Thanks -- I was just trying to remember the music site you listened to -- I needed some new background music on Friday just for what you are talking about -- getting into the zone.
