Most people listen to music when they work. I love working in silence. I think its because most people think of work as work and I think of work as fun. I take what I do seriously and Im not just killing time whenever I work on something.
When you listen to music your brain isn't 100% focused on the task at hand. In order to produce amazing things you don't have to work hard you just have to work focused. The more focused you are on the task at hand the better your products will be.
