Whistle While you Work
When it comes to DIY, there's a few things we all need to get the job done: the proper tools, the right materials, and of course something to listen to whilst working on your project. Even though I probably work faster without music (impromptu dance attacks generally happen at least once an hour), it makes working on the project that much more enjoyable and memorable. Below is a list I've compiled of bands that I like to listen to whilst working on particular jobs.
Painting- Roy Orbison, David Bowie, Blondie, The Beatles
Tiling- Beastie Boys, REM, Polyphonic Spree, The Young Knives, Cold War Kids
Decoupage- Edith Piaf, Regina Spektor, Belle and Sebastian
Wallpapering- Arcade Fire, The Cure, The Decemberists, Editors
Rearranging Furniture- CSS, Delorentos, The Supremes, Vampire Weekend
What do you guys listen to when working on your home? Please share your musical inspirations!
