According to this article researchers have found evidence that certain songs will maximize productivity and creativity.

 

I buy it. I think we all know music can affect our mood.

 

Apparently, “songs by Queen, 50 Cent, Kanye West and Coldplay were among those…” most likely to inspire productivity.
