Songs That Make You Get Stuff Done

I made a playlist post like forever ago for improving your self confidence, but since I'm currenly sitting in the lecture hall of my school waiting for my free period to be over, let's get some stuff done. Here are a couple of movie soundtrack tunes that have helped me clean kitchens, windows, cars, get homework done, and some other stuff that involves bring productive.

Briony, from Atonement by Dario Marinelli
Atonement was a love it or hate it movie for most viewers, but the soundtrack was pretty much universally acknowledged as amazing. This track is cool because it features the type writer as a sort of percussion instrument. Now that's innovative.

In Motion, from The Social Nework, by Trent Reznor and Atticuss Ross
Add Jesse Eisenberg's soliloquy/hacking spiel if you wish.

The Entire Skyfall soundtrack by Thomas Newman
Look, ain't nothing better than pretending to have your own quartermaster and going on super awesome top secret classified stranger than fiction missions. That's why the entire Skyfall soundtrack goes on the list. Helpful if you also don't feel like skipping songs you don't want to listen to 'cause this whole thing is brilliant.

Dream is Collapsing by Hans Zimmer from Inception
If you want some sci-fi with your James Bond, here ya go.

Immigrant Song, from The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross feat. Karen O
Okay, so I haven't seen TGWTDT but seriously, this is how you re-work a Zeppelin song. Short, sweet, dark, and one to listen to when trying to get the homeworks done. Might inspire some pretty sweet doodles on the margins too. Also, this is one of the only songs with vocals that I can listen to while studying.

Helpful? I'll probably do some more in the near future. Soundtrack is great for studying bceause A) it makes you feel pretty cool, B) It's interesting to listen to, and C) most of it doesn't have vocals so as to distract you. If I put on Florence and the Machine whilst trying to study, I'll be dancing around my room like a drunk woodland pixie by track 5. These help me get stuff done. Cool? Cool.
