The Best Playlist To Get You Through Your Day

Whether you work in front of a computer all day or take to the road, music helps to move things along. While I'm not the kind of person that can listen to music and concentrate on research or writing at the same time, I definitely turn up the volume to get those small to-do's accomplished.

I love Pandora on my phone. I depend on Sirius XM in the car. And I adore Spotify on my computer. But the mixes are getting seriously old. Sometimes I really need a long string of jams to help get me through days when I'm feeling less than inspired.
