We’ve all had those days when we’re sitting at our desk, unable to get anything done. Maybe our concentration isn’t quite there, or the task we’re working on at the moment is slow and monotonous. Luckily, studies have shown that music can drastically improve our focus and enable us to get more work done. Here are ten great tracks that can ease any office woe:

1) “It Ain’t Me Babe” by Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash
This twang-y cover of the Bob Dylan classic has a consistent pace perfect for those more tedious tasks—and allows you to get into a comfortable rhythm to work.

2) “Silence” by Beethoven
This classic will give you all the serenity and focus you need while varying tempos for an alternately motivating and calming mood—perfect for any time you’re feeling a bit overwhelmed.

3) “Hooked on a Feeling” by Blue Swede
This classic saw a resurgence in popularity after last summer’s “Guardians of the Galaxy,” and it’s no surprise why: the upbeat tone is perfect for banishing any workday blues.

4) “Comptine d’un autre été, l’aprés-midi” by Yann Teirsen
Fans of the 2001 film “Amélie” will recognize this melodious track, which has just the right pacing for getting in the groove to focus and work on tougher problems.

5) “Elastic Heart” by Sia
This song combines an almost hypnotic backing with powerful vocals and quick beats, making for a uniquely enjoyable productivity-booster.

6) “Pirates of the Caribbean Theme” by Hans Zimmer
This long, sweeping track is perfect for anyone who wants to match an epic score to tasks both stimulating and mundane alike.

7) “Eye of the Tiger” by Survivor
Sometimes going through your work can be a battle—and there’s no better song to get you pumped up to take on the challenge like this classic tune.

8) “I Wanna Be Sedated” by The Ramones
This fast-paced song by New York’s punk darlings will provide an enjoyably repetitive and tongue-in-cheek tone for even the most trying of workdays.

9) “Love Runs Out” by OneRepublic
The steady drum-beat behind this track makes it a great one for reviving waning motivation—plus its retro-rock feel makes it an extremely fun listen.

10) “Primavera” Ludovico Einaudi
This beautifully melodic track builds slowly but comes to a sweeping crescendo; it will revive you from any late-afternoon sleepiness and enable you to get that last bit of work done before the day’s end.

Whether you prefer pop tracks, instrumentals, classical pieces or anything in between, you can perk up your workday with music. Now put on those headphones, and let the productivity boost begin!
