Get in the Groove: A Playlist for Credit Professionals
Melissa Mickelsen, CCE, Geneva Rock Products

The power of music is undeniable.  Music can energize or lift you up, or alternately, calm and relax you.  Music can be motivating, provide a distraction, help you work through emotions and even improve your mood when you're upset or stressed.

In the workplace, music can help you tune out the loud guy in the cubicle next to you or a noisy printer and help you focus.  It can make repetitive tasks a little more bearable.  Music can get you moving when you're in an afternoon slump.  And some even argue that listening to music at work can improve productivity.

While not everyone enjoys listening to music at work, and not all workplaces allow it, for those who do, the right music can make all the difference.  And of course, different situations call for different tunes.  The songs listed below might be just what's needed for a few common credit scenarios. (Click to hear for yourself.)

Songs to get you amped up for tough collection calls:


"Eye of the Tiger" - Survivor

"Hungry Like the Wolf" - Duran Duran



Songs for making collection calls:


"Money (Thats What I Want)" - Barrett Strong


"Money Honey" - Elvis Presley


Songs for when collections aren't going so well:

"Build Me Up Buttercup" - The Foundations

"You Never Give Me Your Money" - The Beatles

Songs for negotiations:

"Let's Work Together" - Canned Heat 


"I Want It All" - Queen 


"You Can't Always Get What You Want" - The Rolling Stones



Songs for when you're waiting on payment:


"Hold On" - Alabama Shakes                


"I Will Wait" - Mumford and Sons               

And when that payment finally comes:


"Celebration" - Kool & the Gang               


"On Top of the World" - Imagine Dragons              


"We Are the Champions" - Queen              


"Here Comes the Sun" - The Beatles



There's nothing quite like a good beat and fun lyrics to help move the day along.  And when you can apply those lyrics to the world of credit, it's even better.  Happy listening!
