Every professional has had a day (or two) of monotony, and there’s nothing quite as monotonous a long day spent reviewing custodian data: reading document after document, making the same privilege calls over and over, or QCing hundreds of images for proper redactions can feel like awfully slow work sometimes.
But we know that the people in e-discovery are both passionate and creative, and they know how to have a good time.
So, after bringing you a list of reading recommendations and documentaries for the e-discovery enthusiast, we thought we’d help you spice up your next review project with a killer playlist. Here are some of the tunes that speak to our team—and others in the Relativity community—as they continue to improve their work in this field.
Every breath you take
Every move you make
Every bond you break
Every step you take
I'll be watching you.
Because who doesn’t feel a tad over-involved to be reviewing people’s emails—personal and professional—all day long?
You're famous now and there's no doubt
In all the places you hang out
They know your name and know what you're about
This speaker’s ex must know what it’s like to have personally identifiable information accidentally disclosed during e-discovery, am I right?

Senses working overtime
Trying to take this all in
I've got one, two, three, four, five
Trying to tell the difference 'tween the goods and grime
For the projects that remind you how e-discovery never stops.
(Submitted by @evolverinc Associate General Counsel Mimi Singh)
I wanna leave you, don't wanna stay here
Don't wanna spend another day here
I wanna split now, I can't quit now
You've really got a hold on me
The ballad of the life of an executive enduring repeated legal holds.

There goes another one of our
It backfired again
We try to think it through
The best that we can
I bet it's gonna backfire again
In e-discovery, even the best-laid plans can be thrown off course by an unexpected data dump. Luckily, this song is energetic enough to keep you on your feet and ready to adjust course.
Work It Harder
Make It Better
Do It Faster
Makes Us Stronger
More Than Ever
Our Work Is Never Over
Is there a better motto for e-discovery than this?
(Submitted by @asarmie6, Industry and Customer Advocacy Specialist at kCura)
Crazy, but that's how it goes
Millions of people living as foes
Maybe it's not too late
To learn how to love
And forget how to hate
This is how you feel when you and your team discover the wonder of accelerated workflows like analytics. (The rest of the song is how you feel if you must work without them.)
A bit of madness is key
To give us new colors to see
Who knows where it will lead us?
And that's why they need us
Here’s to all the mad data scientists, workflow gurus, and creative thinkers who make e-discovery the fast-paced industry it is.
