Inspired by everybody's posts and posts and comments about the massive cleaning, sorting, laundering, de-cluttering, and floor excavating that's going on today, I want to know what music you use to help keep your cleaning energy up!
I'll start — my cleaning music is symphonic Finnish power metal, specifically Sonata Arctica. It has ceaseless energy, big metal riffs, ostentatious keyboards, catchy melodies, I know every lyric by heart, and the music puts me in a nostalgic happy place with amazing memories.
Here's one of their big hits — it's perfect for a super intense burst of doing whatever short task you're really avoiding for whatever reason. Ignore the boring video.
Here's someone's Sonata Arctica playlist, the contents of which I approve:
Note — this band is bad for hangovers, but MOST MUSIC IS BAD FOR HANGOVERS, in my opinion. If I'm hungover, the only way I function is in silence.
What about you?
