What Music Helps You Concentrate?

I saw an article recently on how instrumental musicians (that create big youtube, spotify followings) are making a KILLING now.
Maybe you should make more classical guitar recordings...

Jaren Barnes I listen to the same exact type of music while I'm working.
Some call it repetitive, but I don't know how you can listen to lyrics and concentrate on the work at the same time.
I find lofi to be soothing and similar to the style of concentration I get when listen to classical music.
I've slowly curated my own private youtube "music" channel of hundreds of songs I listen to when i'm working. It's mostly a mix of nostalgic favorites and anime soundtracks/openings/closings. I've heard them all so many times that they're pure background noise at this point. Everyone once in a while something will come on at just the right moment and i'll get sucked into jamming along with it but I usually find it a welcome reprieve.
When I'm quietly working away, and that perfect song comes on at just the right moment...

Trevor Hall all day! He sings about alot of spirtual type topics if you're into that stuff. Aleays getts my positive energy flowing. He sounds like a mix of John Mayer and Jack Johnson
If you grew up in the 90's with the Legend of Zelda, you'll probably appreciate this lofi track - I think it's
Jessey Kwong I came here to post the same thing.
I think I heard Jaren Barnes mention on a podcast episode recently that he works while playing lofi in the background, and I wondered if he'd heard of ChilledCow's YouTube channel. I found out about it a few months ago when some articles were written about it because it had been the longest continuously streaming channel on YouTube (a continuous, years long stream) until someone at YouTube accidentally took it down, temporarily. Anyway, while it's just a bit "sparse" for me to listen to in most other situations, I find it's perfect for background music while working since it's not distracting, like Nick Bond said. This may be way too specific for others to relate, but it reminds me of watching the old school Weather Channel local feed, late at night or early in the morning, trying to figure out if we were going to have a snowday. This was back in the 90's, before the internet (and mobile apps) as we know them now, and before TWC was wall-to-wall, "When Weather Attacks" or whatever they show nowadays.
Seth Williams I'm with you, there. When I was traveling a lot for work, I had to have some kind of white noise to sleep all right in hotel rooms. My go-to's were definitely these "celestial" tracks, or even better, rain tracks with just enough thunder to make it interesting, without being obnoxious.
I was so inspired by this forum thread, I decided to compile a few concentration music videos on behalf of REtipster.
Since we have access to some vast libraries of royalty-free music and stock footage, I figured, why not? Right?
If you like LoFi, Ambient, or Piano music, be sure to bookmark these and play them on repeat!

Seth Williams Thanks. I have used Binaural Beats while researching and like the vibe.
