Find me on:

While you're taking care of your expense reports, here’s a Spotify expense report playlist you can play while you work to make your tasks ahead a little more rocking.

  1. 4 Minutes feat. Justin Timberlake and Timbaland—Madonna

    Start with energy and inspiration. With Receipt EXPRESS, it might take less than 4 minutes to save the world (and by that we mean file your expense report). In case you haven’t upgraded your life yet, these 4 minutes of Madonna will keep it rocking while you’re sorting through those receipts.
  2. Only Time (Original Version)—Enya

    This classic relaxing tune lets you concentrate on the details of your task. It will also prompt you to remember the power of time.
  3. Cheek to Cheek—Ella Fitgerald & Louis Armstrong

    This throwback to glamorous ballroom-style soirees maintains concentration with a gentle swinging beat. At this stage, you’re probably ready to enter your information into the system, so Louis and Ella will keep you upbeat and positive.
  4. I’m Like A Bird—Nelly Furtado

    Just think of the freedom inherent in finishing your expense report. Picture mountains and beaches or wherever your happy place is. It awaits you! You can do it!
  5. Complicated—Avril Lavigne

    Expense reports can be complicated, but this song will keep you mellowed out while you dive into the details.
  6. They Can’t Take That Away From Me (1998 Digital Remaster)—Frank Sinatra

    This quick 2-minute nod back to old Hollywood puts Frank Sinatra in your brain. You’re probably at a stage where you’d like to take a break, but if you stay focused, you’ll finish even faster.
  7. Pay You Back With Interest—The Hollies

    Listening to this song will feel too real as a reminder of the reason why you’re doing all this work. Stay motivated and think of the payoff.
  1. Hey Ya (solo version)—Obediah Parker

    This guitar-only solo cover of the original dance-worthy hip-hop song inspires peace and calm to flood your system. You’ll be focused and concentrated, helping you finish the task quickly and efficiently
  1. Stronger—Kanye West

    You’ve chilled out for the last few songs, so now it’s time to get into a heart-pumping beat to keep you working hard. “Better, faster, stronger!”
  2. We Are One (Ole Ola) (feat. Jennifer Lopz & Claudia Leitte)—Pitbull

    The most modern song on this playlist, this official 2014 FIFA World Cup Song lets you finish hard on a high of inspiration. This blast of fun suggests fun and reward, both of which you’ve earned.
