So, if I want to get into dangerous programming overdrive, some "alert authorities before ingestion" type coffee plus some good music works wonders. What's your goto music for getting into the programming zone?

Though I'm 55 and the music of the mid-70s was 'my music', I almost always find myself going to the 90s for the good stuff. The Pumpkins' "Mellon Collie and Infinite Sadness" or "Siamese Dream" seriously move me. And, strangely I somehow managed to miss the whole shoegaze thing back when it was happening, but I really love a lot of that these days. Something like My Bloody Valentine's Sometimes really speaks to me. No Doubt's Magic Kingdom, the RHCPs, Blues Traveler Four, Tori Amos' Little Earthquakes, Radiohead (everything pretty much), the Jellyfish, Fionna Apple's Tidal, Mazzy Star, and on and on.

In retrospect, I think that the 90s was sort of the last great peak of music before everyone just starting stealing it and before massive digital manipulation became a matter of course. Not that I don't like the 60s/70s, I just never get the urge to put any of it on with a cup o'joe and program like a crazy man.
