Current Playlist

22 Sep

Presuming you listen to music or background noise while writing, what’s on your current writing playlist?

Lately I’ve been obsessed with a mashup called “Pop Culture” by Madeon. I first heard it when a YouTube video called Fan.tasia was going around on Tumblr showcasing the song with Disney movie clips. It’s pretty mesmerizing to watch if you haven’t already!

Also at the top of my writing playlist is Lindsey Stirling’s new album Brave Enough. Some of my favorite songs are “The Arena,” “Mirage,” “Something Wild,” and “Those Days.” Music videos for “The Arena” and “Something Wild” are up on her YouTube channel, and are absolutely brilliant!

So, what are you listening to? Or are you the type to have certain playlists to fit certain moods or genres that you’re writing? Perhaps you’re the kind of writer that has big-ass noise-cancelling headphones?

    I love Lindsey Stirling! Good choices. If you like her, try Piano Guys. 😉

    Much as I enjoy listening to music, I find it distracting when I write. I also find complete silence distracting. Instead, I use Noisli to create background noise (at the moment, I’m using the combined sounds of a thunder storm and a train).

      I’ve heard of a couple of background noise sites, but not Noisli. I’ll have to check it out, thanks!

    I always link a certain music to a certain writing project so that I can dive right into the feeling of the story just by listening to the music. For one project that I’ve been working on for years, this music would be anything by enya. For this year’s NaNo project which includes time travel, I chose Doctor Who soundtracks

      Enya is amazing! Soundtracks are also tons of fun to write to. One of my favorites is The Pirates of the Caribbean. 🙂

    Yesterday I started listening to Smoothie again. I was going to listen to Yungtown, but then I knew I would just try to sing along. And I can’t.

      I heard you playing Smoothie. It got my attention because I think he was on a Super Mario RPG song when I heard him. XD

    Haha, we were talking about playlist earlier and you have gone and pulled a great blog out of it. This is exactly why you have just made my Liebster Award list of Chosen Ones.
    Check out the link to see what I’ve written about your blog and decide if you have the time, inclination, degree of insanity, to pick up the torch.

        Haha, I know how you feel and it does take more time thank you think. By far the nominations are the best bit. Your blog is fab, people should know about it.
