    Midnight Coding Music

    So I don't know if you're like me, and somehow seem to do your best programming in the darkest hours of the night.

    A little like a tame version of Swordfish, it's music blasting, a massive chocolate bar to last the night, Redbull or some mild alcohol, and just cranking out code before crashing the next day. Good times, man. Good times.

    I have a whole Youtube playlist for those nights, with all sorts of stay-awake music, and no lyrics or I'd get distracted singing along. But I've found the single, best song is this one;



    When I'm really stuck, I leave that one on repeat.



    So any other midnight coders out there?

    Are your practices similar to mine, or what do you guys do instead?!

    And what is your single, best midnight coding song?

    Night time works for me because I'm alone and undisturbed and allowed to think.

    Most of the time I'll leave the television on in the next room so the picture doesn't distract me but I can hear whats going on.

    Stand up comedians seem to work the best since I don't have to see anything to enjoy what I'm hearing.

    Night time has always been my best time

    my best tool is the Verdi: Otello cd by the Bastille opera orchestra & choir, conducted by Myung-whun chung and performed by Placido Domingo

    then there is Rossini: William tell Overture, Elgar: cello concerto, Wagner: the flying dutchman Overture + ride of the valkyries, Grieg: morning mood, solveig's song, in the hall of the mountain kind etc

    Then there is live recordings from the who, pink Floyd or music from the doors pouring out from the Television.

    Elvis!

    Selected songs from Morisette, Marley, Chapman, Redding, Reed, Pink, Zeppelin, Shakira, Joplin, Hendrix, Enya, Lavigne, Piaf, Secret garden, Björk, Vangelis, Kansas, Celtic Woman, Franklin and so on...

    Some Norwegian artists: DDE, Banana Airlines, Terje tysland, KM Myrland, Øystein Sunde, Vazelina Bilopphøggers, Hans Rotmo, Jan Teigen etc...

    I also use to pick up my guitar or sit down at the piano, or go down in my studio to bang them drums, stand on my hands, walk out on the balcony to get some fresh air, or prank call my friends at the middle of the night... Everything to get a break and new energy

    haha, That's really funny. Unless your friends weren't already up late too!

    hmm, It just occured to me that version of the song I posted isn't totally family-friendly.

    Same as for me. But I don't do coding stuffs. I write my script. Best time for me is night time when everyone's asleep and environment is quiet. It's the best time for me to concentrate and conceptualize the things I want to write.

    Why is this creepy, little robot so catchy?

    Anyways, great coding music again. Listening to this one now and imaging my server as the little robot following my instructions, haha.
