Companies have long used music to set rhythm for production lines - and to boost morale of employees.  


Now a new study by the University of Illinois confirms that people do respond - positively in productivity terms - to music.


They suggest however that instrumentals are best - words can  interfere with language "tasks" which are part of the work.


Similarly,  music is more effective if it has a constant, easy beat and a light melody.

So - play on!
