Working from home gives me the opportunity to dj my life for 8+ hours a day. I rely pretty heavily on Rdio these days as it has everything I loved about other streaming music services: artist specific radio stations, playlist, good coverage of new releases, and lots of indie and electronic. It also built on some things I didn’t like about other services, specifically the ability to listen ONLY to the artist you specified for an artist radio station, no overt p2p networking and it only costs $4 a month.
I spend a lot of time in darker droning music so I need something full of bounce and a little cheese to get me going sometimes. Here’s the 35 songs I’ve got on my upbeat get to work playlist currently. It’s good any time of the day but if I want to work after 10pm it’s the only way to go.
If you’re a rdio subscriber or if you have the free rdio account you’ll be able to listen to the playlist below, otherwise you will only get 30 second clips of each song. I highly recommend getting at least a free account as it does give you a decent amount of free, ad free songs to listen to each month. I signed up before I hit my limit but I listened for 2 weeks without running out.
