The Best Office Songs to Beat the January Blues!

When you are in the office there is sometimes very little saving you from a hideous dose of depression in January after the joy and excitement of Christmas comes to a crushing end. For accountants the reality is the busiest month of the year. One minute you are finishing off a cheese board in your Zebra onesie watching a Christmas film and the next you are drinking gallons of coffee, nursing a headache and trying to find your desk under all the paperwork.

There is one thing that keeps us sane in the ABC offices and that is some decent tunes. I say decent but the fact is the boss is into Iron Maiden and Puddle of Mudd and the management team blast out Kasabian – but it keeps them happy and I digress. Whatever your taste in music, get yourself some headphones and give yourself a time out. Trust us, it will do wonders. Just one word of warning though – you cannot hear them but they will be able to hear you so strictly no singing as you get absorbed into your favourite tracks.

We have compiled a thorough list of some of our favourites, some popular classics, and a few that will just make you want to smile. So find the category that appeals to you and give us a grin! It was so hard to narrow down all the possibilities because you cannot do the music made to date justice in one blog. It also has a female bias to it! But there are some seriously awesome tunes coming up! My personal favourite is the ‘epic’ section. Enjoy!

And to the ABC team – hope this helps pass the time and get you all to the 31st in one piece!
