Once, listening to music at work would have been unheard of, but today sites like Focusmusic.fm acknowledge that many workers make practical use of music to hone in and focus on tasks. And, since some genres of music are better suited to productivity than others, Focusmusic.fm finds only the music that helps people get into a flow while doing their work.

The music on Focusmusic.fm is primarily electronic and without vocals, recognizing that lyrics tend to be more distracting when compared to more regular beats. Beyond the music itself, the interface on Focusmusic.fm is specifically geared toward productivity. Its minimalist design only includes a big play button and forward and backward arrows. In fact, it doesn't even allow users to select their song or see song titles.
