In German-speaking Austria we have the advantage not to understand every
word of the songs. So it can happen, that we sing out loud lyrics, that we
never took in mouth in our mothertounge. Sometimes funny, and sometimes much
less stress.

I agree with what you say Andi.  Music is a great stress reliever as well.
Ive always let the group decide if they are all willing to tolerate other
kinds of music to be fair. I always ask them to try to keep it clean. Don't
want to offend 
With that being said. I myself have had to tone it down because I love me
some disco music:).  

Yes, ring my bell and shake your groove thing lol

Without further silliness. Music is great in the lab if you can get the
people to agree on compromise.if you have someone you know is very strict
and you know Katy perrys I kissed a girl song is going to send them over the
edge.  Don't do it. Let them use headphones. Because you wouldn't want
someone claiming harassment.

going all morning and even in the mid-afternoon when you hit that "slump"

someone comes in with a question or when the phone rings I don't think it is
a problem.

my iPod.
