    Whats your favorite music/spotify playlist to play during the building process?

    Rodrigo Borgia

    Hi Sofie,
    I always ask the participants what them would like to hear.
    At some point in time, them are the “owners” of the activity…. :)
    Have fun,

    Hi Sophie,
    For the construction skill building I use “Trashin’ the Camp” by Phil Collins/’N Sync from the Tarzan soundtrack. It’s fun, energetic and short
    For the individual metaphor build, I use Al Di Meola’s version of “Theme from the Mothership”. It’s reasonably fast-paced, while still remaining quite controlled and serene.
    For a shortish individual build, I often use “Big Yellow Taxi” by Joni Mitchell. Again it sounds cheerful and energetic.
    For a longer individual build, I have been known to use “Telegraph Road” by Dire Straits. 15 minutes is long enough, I think.

    I never use music for pair or shared builds.
    Hope these ideas help,

    Hi Sophie,

    Here are some of the songs I use:

    Pharrell Williams – Happy (always a great starter)
    Art of Noise – Dreaming in Color, Il Pleure
    Fourplay – Play and Pleasure, Bali Run
    Rhye – Open
    Vangelis – Chariots Of Fire
    Bruno Mars – Uptown Funk
    Moby – My Beautiful Blue Sky, Stream
    Macklemore – Downtown

    It always depends on the build exercise and the participants.

    I setup PPT slides for each exercise with a visual countdown timer that play a song automatically and fade it out when the time is over. This really helps manage the time. Details here: http://seriousplaypro.com/2015/04/14/a-musical-powerpoint-timer-for-lsp-sessions/

    Thanks guys! great to talk about the aspect of music, cause it does create an atmosphere. I usualy go for old style jazz, but will check out your suggestions as well.


    I have a public Spotify playlist if you’re interested. https://open.spotify.com/user/123895693/playlist/5Gs4talVveRL1dZWWK1Fk1

    It’s all instrumental, high energy, good beats. Have a listen. It may not be right for everyone but i like it.

    My 2 cents, depending on excercise, mood and group:

    Earned it – The Weeknd
    Take it back – Ed Sheeran
    Still young – The Cat Empire
    Brighter than gold – The Cat Empire
    Happiness – Jonathan Jeremiah
    Street spirit – Radiohead
    Try and make sense – MOAT
    The Walker – Fitz and the Tantrums
    Can’t hold us – Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
    Move on up – Curtis Mayfield
    Stronger – Kanye West
    Honey – Moby
    Raggamuffin – Selah Sue
    Killer / Papa was a Rollin’ Stone – George Michael
    Billie Jean – Michael Jackson
    We no speak Americano – Yolanda Be Cool

    And my favorite to make them go wild:
    Somebody told me – The Killers :-)

    Rodrigo Borgia

    Hi there ladies & gentlemans,

    What for a great contribution on this topic!

    I created a spotify playlist based on my own selection and some of the songs described here……. I dont know how to share it, feel free to follow me.

    Have fun,



    Hi Sophie,
    By the moment I don’t use music in workshops. But I’m tempted. I’m sure soon or later I will try that with some Henry Mancini’s songs for films. I think they have the potential to fit with the perfect mood required by some kind of questions. I found many pieces great to create a playfulness ambience: A Profound Gass, Baby Elephant Walk, Megeve, Party Poop and of course the Pink Panther Theme.
