Let's Get Busy: Songs to Listen to While Making Things

Illustration for article titled Lets Get Busy: Songs to Listen to While Making Things

Phil Torrone, senior editor of MAKE and creative director for DIY site Adafruit, is a DIY guru and all-around good guy. So we had him give us good songs to listen to while building stuff.

He gave us a list of tunes chock full of productive, creative goodness. We posted the songlist and a video to get you started, but you can see the rest of the vids with commentary over on the Adafruit blog. (Photo courtesy of HSmade)
