I like to listen to music when I’m writing- but we’ll get to that in a moment.
I was a musician and played the guitar for many years, so rock and roll was a very big part of my life. No matter where I am or what I’m doing there’s music around me somewhere.
Here’s area few songs I enjoy listening to because they sort of reach into my brain and heart and flip the switches on:
Sometimes I like to listen to a song for the fun of it, it just zips along and I go with it and sing really loud- of course I can’t sing but who cares?
Classical Music speaks to me, I get it it”s like poetry all of those parts add up to an image or a feeling.
But that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with it and it doesn’t have to make sense.
Some songs just make me say, ” Hell Yeah!”
” Victoria” by Ray Davies is for no one reason, ” my song. ”
I’m going to let you in on a secret about what what I listen to when I’m writing- the soundtrack to every word I have ever written.
What I am listening to right now.
In fact, if you read something of mine you can be sure I was listening to this band when I was writing:
One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.
Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.
I look at you and I write down what I hear.
