We pride ourselves on plenty here in the newsroom, but something I feel particularly competitive about during the long hours in MUB 156 is my ability to select the most appropriate tune on YouTube to keep myself and my fellow news, design, sports and executive editors motivated.

True- we sometimes disagree on things around here. Some of us like country (ugh). Some of us like old school rap. Some of us are too indie to function (content editor Amanda Beland also DJ's for WUNH). Some of us are really, really, ridiculously obsessed with the new Mike Posner song.

Okay, that last one was me- but it's only because I have a crush on Mike Posner.

But we have those staple songs that everyone loves- Cee Lo Green's "Fuck You", Hall and Oates "Make My Dreams Come True", Biggie's "Juicy" and The Rolling Stones' "Beast of Burden" are almost always played on repeat.

Our picks aren't always the same, but we do have some overlap in our taste for tunes. And that's similar to the way we run our newsroom. We're pretty different people, with wildly different opinions. We love discussion (and, sometimes, drama). But at the end of the day, we compromise and overlap, throw all our creative ideas out there, and sometimes it turns it to something pretty good.

Although not as good as UB40'S "Red, Red Wine."
