Poses by Rufus Wainwright


Rufus Wainwright is by far one of my girlfriend's favorite musicians, but for some reason, this song just got to me! It's one of the few greatest songs to keep you focused while you are at work! It's slow and the words are just so beautiful! It's a great song and it won't distract you at all!


Clint Eastwood by Gorillaz


If you are looking for a super upbeat song that is totally fun and that will keep you totally focused, this is the song for you! I love the beat and it really keeps me popping whenever I am working on a big project! It's also not distracting at all, which is definitely a plus! Whenever it comes on, I get really happy and yep, I do have sunshine in a bag!


Crash into Me by Dave Matthews Band



Another song that I absolutely love to listen to at work is Crash into Me. This is a song that, while older, is still a classic and one that I can't get enough of! Dave's voice is just so beautiful and while you might find yourself singing along to it, that doesn't mean that you'll be distracted at all! Also – he's super hot in this video!


1983 by Neon Trees


Neon Trees is one of my favorite bands and while I find myself singing along with a lot of their songs, this is a song that, although happy and peppy, I can still listen to and stay focused at work! It's also a fantastic road trip song to listen to when you are driving down the road! Give it a try!


9 to 5 by Dolly Parton


Okay, I know that this is an old, old, old song, but it's still super fun! I love Dolly Parton and while I don't listen to a lot of her music, I thought that this song was brilliantly appropriate! It's all about work and getting to work – from 9 to 5. Listen to it and see how you like it!


Lose Yourself by Eminem


Oh yes, Eminem had to be on this list, he's my favorite artist! This is by far one of my songs to keep me focused and while I might hum the lyrics, I am still motivated and not distracted at whatever I am doing. Do you think that you can listen to Eminem while at work?


Fighter by Christina Aguilera


While I am not really a huge fan of Christina, I do happen to think that this is one of the few songs of hers that is fantastic to keep you focused at work. While the video creeps me out a little bit – just because of the hands – it's still a great song! Have you ever had someone pushing you down at work? This song will motivate you!


A Hard Day's Night by the Beatles


Finally, I can't have a list of songs to keep you focused without having The Beatles on here! This amazing song is so upbeat but it still won't distract you, it'll make you want to finish up your work!

While a lot of people say that classical music is the best bet when you are trying to find songs that keep you focused, for me, it's a different story. What songs do you listen to at work? Any of these?

I listen to Jack Johnson -- all of his music is great background music for me with a cheeriness in it to start / keep going with my day!
