R&P- is there a song you enjoy with a particular rhythm or beat that helps you get stuff done?

Like at work, or washing the car for example.

I think it's clear enough, but let me know if you want an example :)

Update:

Anonymous, you never know. Hits right to me.

Update 2:

Mars- that's an eye opening tune that.

    Heya, dude. I'm thinking it has lots to do with what you wanna do. Some things can use a fast aggressive tune, where force and no particular precision is needed (like demolition, etc.) for a while. Other things may be covered OK by a "happier", medium-pace thing, when you need a sustained effort for a while (like cooking/cleaning, etc.). Still others, the really dicey stuff that doesn't happen as often, like working on a live electrical connection, taking care of an injured child or pet - or actually using a very sharp knife to finely dice something - may be best with zero sound distraction.

    What one chooses per group is, of course, highly personal. For me, the first times do OK with like this AC/DC tune: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aAOj2eQQ14A

    If I want to sing or listen to a song while I'm busy I do so, but not because I need it.
