Every day, we hear the sound of boss music in our heads. It might be coming from a TV show, or it could be your neighbor’s car stereo blaring out their favorite song. If you’re anything like me, then you’ve found yourself lost in thought and realized that you have no idea what was going on for the last few minutes – all because of some catchy tunes. But there are other times when this tune is not so fun to listen to. When I’m trying to work at home and my neighbors start blasting their speakers with rock music, it can be really distracting!
For example: when I clean out my email inbox, I like turning on one of my favorite Pandora stations. The next thing I know, the music is gone and I’m just staring at my computer screen trying to remember what I was doing when it happened.
Why do we sometimes hear boss music?
It’s because of an effect called cognitive load – which means that your brain uses a lot of mental resources for one task (in this case, listening) while another task becomes more difficult or less effective as a result. This happens because you have to divide your attention between two tasks – in this instance, keeping up with the lyrics and following along on whatever else is happening onscreen. When there are competing sounds around us, our brains can’t process both things properly at once! But don’t worry too much about getting distracted favorite calming songs to help me get ready for the day.
Here’s what I like to do when my neighbors start playing music:
Pick up a CD of one of your favorite artists and put it on standby in advance – this way, you’re never at a loss for good tunes while working from home!
Close out all other tabs or windows so that there are no distractions. You want everything else to be quiet because loud boss music can really cut into productivity if it goes uninterrupted too long.
Put some earplugs in as well just to make sure those pesky sounds don’t interfere with the work you need to be done today. After all, our brains deserve peace and tranquility after being bombarded by noise throughout me all of the treble detail I want in order to enjoy every song at its full potential! Plus, there’s an added bonus: because there isn’t much the day.
I love them because they block out sound really well but still give me the richness of low frequencies. I find that’s what gives a song so much life and personality, and it helps me really get in touch with my emotions when listening to music.

Sound waves are just vibrations of air molecules. They’re not limited to the audible range—they extend into wavelengths as small as one millimeter and as long as kilometers or about 30 octaves below middle C to well above what we humans can hear. When you talk with your friends at work in an office where everyone is wearing a headset for phone calls, you might be surrounded by low-frequency sound waves that make it hard to pay attention because they vibrate so deeply in our bodies.
Boss Music: What is it?
Sometimes music can be a distraction and we want some peace of mind, which is why many people turn off their radios or speakers at work. When I’m working on my laptop with headphones on, sometimes I hear loud drums coming from one earbud and then suddenly change positions so that both ears have different melodies playing simultaneously.
It’s not uncommon to see people wearing earbuds at their office desk while listening to soothing classical tunes or even a podcast episode about how they can increase productivity in the workplace by following these three steps that I’ve outlined for you here. But let me tell you something – it’s also quite common to hear what sounds like bass music coming from those same earbuds!
