10 Songs Steve Jobs Used to Train His Brain

That’s the title of this article from Inc. You can read the details here, but before you do, see what you make of this list of songs that Steve Jobs went back to again and again. (Via Bobby)

  1. “Imagine,” John Lennon (Steve was a major Beatles fan)
  2. “Hard Headed Woman,” Cat Stevens
  3. “Highway 61 Revisited,” Bob Dylan (No one mattered more to Jobs than Dylan)
  4. “The Goldberg Variations,” J.S. Back (Let’s hope he favoured the Glenn Gould recordings)
  5. “Truckin’,” The Grateful Dead (Steve always had a hippie streak.)
  6. “Late for the Sky,” Jackson Browne (I think if you’re from California, you had to own this album by law,)
  7. “Blue in Green,” Miles Davis (Hey, Steve! We have this one in common!”)
  8. “Beast of Burden,” Rolling Stones (Really?)
  9. “Won’t Get Fooled Again,” The Who (Which I believe to be the greatest rock song ever written,)
  10. “Blowin’ in the Wind,” Peter, Paul and Mary
