I haven’t done a Friday Fun post in awhile and so I thought it was time! Those of you who know me well know that I love music just as much as I love books. Just like books music has a way of transporting me somewhere else. It moves me the same way a good book does. Because of this I usually write while listening to music. I generally don’t like to listen to happy music when writing. Mostly I choose moody and dark music. I’m not sure why. I think because it makes me feel such strong emotions and that helps to transcend into the scenes that I’m writing. So below I’ve given you a sampling of my playlists. Feel free to comment below to tell me what songs are on your playlist.
Civil Wars: Poison and Wine, Falling and Tip of my Tongue
Skillet – Savior and Hero
Sarah McLachlan – Ice
Taylor Swift – Safe and Sound
Gungor – Beautiful Things
Civil Wars: You are my Sunshine, Birds of a Feather, I’ve Got this Friend and Tip of my Tongue
Taylor Swift – I Knew you were Trouble
Bruno Mars – It will Rain, and Grenade
Barlow Girl – Never Alone
FALLING TO PIECES playlist:
Civil Wars: To Whom it May Concern, Falling, Dance Me to the End of Love, Twenty Years, and Tip of my Tongue
Nikki Reed and Paul McDonald: Now that I’ve Found You
Hunter Hayes – Wanted
Christina Perri – A Thousand Years
I’m sure you’re seeing a theme here. I tend to be a bit obsessed with the Civil Wars. They are amazing and the mood they evoke in me really helps me write. I hope you enjoyed reading what I like to listen to while writing. Let me know what you think!
