glassCanopy Profile: Music in the Office

Last week, I was playing a most excellent cover of “Satan, Your Kingdom Must Come Down.” As it was playing, Jess overheard and asked, “Hey, is that Led Zeppelin?” To which I replied, “No, it’s by…Robert Plant.”

She called Melanie over, told her what I said, and they both laughed and laughed.

We spend a lot of time talking about – and listening to – music at glassCanopy. It’s something we all enjoy, and something that both helps us concentrate on our work and make time pass that much quicker.

About two months ago, we purchased subscriptions to premium versions of Spotify and Pandora. Combined with our cute little Jambox, we can listen to virtually any music we want to, taking it with us from desk to desk, from the kitchen to the conference room. We take turns, breaking the monotony and introducing us to a range of music we wouldn’t experience otherwise.

For example, last Friday, Jess came into the office in what she called an “ABBA” mood. I won’t lie: “Dancing Queen” makes getting through a slew of administrative tasks that much more enjoyable.

Bring on the synthesizers and tacky Europop costumes!

I returned the favor by playing “Songs in the Key of Life” and “Thriller” when we got into the office on Monday.

I may also have thrown in some 16th century English Tudor polyphony. I’m only human.

Here are the top five albums we’ve listened to in the last week:





For us, playing music in the office has been a great way to bond and learn about one another.
