  1. Many people like to listen to music while they work. When programming, a
  2. great deal of concentration is required. One must be able to juggle many
  3. different kinds of information, remembering how various bits of your
  4. project interact.
  5. There\'s a lot to keep track of. Distractions from your environment
  6. really hurt one\'s productivity while programming, and music can help.
  7. Not just any sort of music, unfortunately. Many programmers have found
  8. rock or metal distracting, and have turned to electronica, dance or
  9. post-rock/instrumental rock, stuff they wouldn\'t normally consider.

  11. radio stations that some programmers find aid concentration.
