Want to know what all the cool kids at Prime Incorporated are listening to? A designer's playlist is nothing to scoff at. After all, our line of work is fueled by inspiration and creativity, making our playlists the creme-de-la-creme of all playlists. There are plenty of streaming outlets out there--Pandora, iTunes, Google Play or YouTube. Once you find your favorite, I strongly suggest plugging these 10 awesome tunes in your playlist to get you through the workweek. This, my friends, is what your office Spotify playlist SHOULD look like.
Beck - Wow
Beck's new song, WOW, is a little out there but we love it. It is the perfect tune to get you out of your comfort zone when designing.
Savi - Breathe It In
Breathe It In by Savi has a great beat. This song is sure to help you focus during a long week.
OneRepulic - Kids
OneRepublic does it again with their new song, Kids. It is a perfectly upbeat song to get you through your workload.
Francis and the Lights - May I have This Dance
If you like the relaxing vibe and earthy sound of a Phil Collin's song then you will love May I Have This Dance by Francis and the Lights. Sometimes work can be fast-paced and stressful--this is the perfect tune to slow things down.
The Chainsmokers - Closer
Big fan of collaborations? Closer by The Chainsmokers ft. Halsey is a catchy little diddy sure to lift your spirits when work has you down. If you haven't heard it already--where the hell have you been? (But in all honesty, you will find yourself singing right along in no time!)
Nevada - The Mack
Everyone loves a good remake--especially when it involves Fetty Wap! Nevada redoes Mark Morrison's Return of the Mack as The Mack. Don't worry, the original flare is well intact and it's a perfect song to bust out some kickass designs to.
John Parr - St. Elmos Fire
St. Elmos Fire by John Parr is just pure American. If you are in need of inspiration in the form of a blast from the past then this is the song for you.
Galantis - Love On Me
Galantis isn't everyone's cup of tea. Their song Love On Me may be too intense for your work environment, but not ours! You may find yourself jumping out of your desk for this one.
MUNA - Winterbreak
For the sake of slowing things back down, MUNA is a great group to add to your playlist. Their song, Winterbreak, holds the top spot for me at work. It's calming and a little different. It is sure to get those creative juices flowing every time.
Matoma - Old Thing Back
We are a big fan of songs that aren't afraid to use a little saxaphone. And who can hate on the Notorious BIG. You NEED this song in your life. Matoma did an awesome collaboration with Ja Rule and brought back this oldie but a goodie with Old Thing Back. It's a little explicit but I think you can handle it.
