The War Room
Question
Post

Favorite "war-tunes" - What do you jam out to while prospecting/emailing?

What do you listen to when you're off calls and in the zone?


Do you revisit that Coachella set that almost got you fired as an SDR?


Do you go calm, classical, and professional?


Do you get fired up on Gladiator and Halo like me? (I DARE you to keep your tail from wagging when https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QAeeYohFL1Y starts picking up).


Love to hear what keeps you going during all the follow-ups and client research!

We used to always blast White Panda on our sales floor the last week of the month. Anytime I need to get hyped, I go straight to White Panda.

Slightly different topic: I put a drum kit in my WFH office. Now I rock out before and after my calls. Great way to get pumped!

I feel like Hans gets me. Could be ancient Rome, or mcconaughey in space. either way it's epic.

My go to is "My Mother Told Me".

I've been on a viking kick recently and it just gets the blood flowing and hypes me up.

Not going to lie - me too. I watched seasons 1-6 of Vikings and now I have some moody Viking war chants on my Spotty.

Love me some Moody Viking war chants. I'm even making Viking arm bands and rings out of silver.

Next will be the shields and axes. 

Breaking news, a Canadian has been arrested for walking down the streets of Vancouver carrying a shield and an axe. While chanting what could only be explained as a viking war cry.

90’s Hip Hop for me. Some albums that come to mind are Illmatic, 36 Chambers, or The Chronic

Easily the best era of music. Got a good Spotify playlist?

There used to be a great one on Pandora called hip hop bbq - all 90s and early 2000s jams.

Don't get me wrong, I love some current hip hop, but I also feel this:

Coffee Beats on Spotify, or Those Who Fear. 


Opposing sides of the musical spectrum, used tactfully at the right times.

Coming in to give the nerdy psychology answer- video game soundtracks are specially engineered for our brains to solve problems while listening to them 🤓 I absolutely crush Salesforce reports while listening to the Watch Dogs 2 or Borderlands soundtracks 😤 Rocket League is a good one too

Check out the Ori soundtracks - the songs are shorter but so good. Witcher 3 OST if I want to pick up the pace. Silver for Salesforce.
