If you’re anything like us, then you probably find it incredibly difficult to concentrate on a particular task when your listening to songs with lyrics. It can be particularly hard to write that pressing essay, email, article etc. when you’re invested in a track, waiting for that favourite line, or you’re humming, singing, or rapping along – that just happens sometimes.
Over the years we’ve compiled a playlist consisting of multiple songs that are effective in creating an atmosphere that seems to help promote focus and concentration. We thought it would be cool to share 6 of our favourite tracks on the site, and so this article was born. We’re resisting the urge to get even cheesier and call this “YOUR SOUNDTRACK TO SUCCESS” – because after all, we all know that music, no matter how soothing and spacious it may be, will not stop us from the inevitable failures that await us.
