Re: I Love My Workers But DAMN !!!!


Country is not my favorite at all but I need some sort of music so I play it when I feel that a HO might come by. Or I program my Zune to play all Jack Johnson.

Otherwise it is all of the above;
Rap
Country
Metal
Classic rock
Pop
Etc
All on my Zune!

I get some weird looks when it goes from Megadeth to Buddy Holly or Busta Rhymes to Fleetwood Mac.

Country offends my ears.

But at least it's music unlike rap, and whatever that death metal crap is supposed to be.

What do you get when you play a country music record (those big round vinyl thingies) backwards?






You get you dog back.

You get your wife back.

You get your house back.

You get your truck back.

Re: I Love My Workers But DAMN !!!!


Don't let the inmates run the asylum. That metal chit would make me throw up. Or country ...
Usually classical and jazz or Old School Gangster rap. None of that new fangled garbage. Why do you guys hate on rap? You have to hear some Jay Z.. Any man would love it.
Beethoven too intense.
Mozart is perfect work music..

I like the Duke mention of the Drifters. Old school motown. Tempations etc. Can't go wrong.

I don't mind a bit. Join away.

As for music on site. I use my phone with Spotify. My day goes something like this.

Typical day I start out with:

Jessie J.
Katy Perry, these two get the blood pumping
Johnny Cash
Ministry
Unsun
Santana
Warren Zevon
Bob Marley
Symph Metal Mix
Dio, if I'm dragging
Gordon Lightfoot
A 94 track 80's list that starts off with Born to be Alive
KTEL Full Tilt
Iron Maiden
and I'll usually close out with some 70's stuff

And lots in between.

I do tailor it to the customer if needed. Little old ladies tend to be turned off by Iron Maiden.

If I know there will be another crew there, I arrive early and get my tunes going.

If not, I will have a long day of Mariachi music.

If I was on a no music jobsite, I would be singing. Nobody wants that.

I can see some quiet music if you're working alone and don't want to hear the voices in your head. But when working cooperatively with others, it interferes with communication and slows down the job. Not good.

Re: I Love My Workers But DAMN !!!!


I had a no music policy on my jobs for years and then my wife bought me a really nice radio by Jeep, remember that one guys? Well, it sat in the truck and never played. One of my guys asked if he could play it just for the one day, I said OK. As soon as he turned it on we could hear them talking about a small plane that may have hit the World Trade center, within minutes we'd stopped working. Pretty soon we just went home. Kinda glad we turned it on that day.....I guess?!!


An no, the radio had nothing to do with the buildings coming down. Very low power radio. :S
