Playlist Pallet

I wasn't planning on posting on the blog today. I have been playing catch up this weekend because I managed to save over some edits that I had made to Dark Corners with a less edited draft so now I have lost a big chunk of my work over the last couple days. Not happy. Don't get me wrong I wouldn't take it out on my blog I just have a ton more to do now so I have been making a valient effort to catch back up. Anyway, I am doing what I do best procrastinating. Today's topic: Music.

I find whether or not I can listen to music while I work totally depends on the project. Some of them I can no problem others I need silence. Some are soft and sad, others strong and challenging, just like I want my characters to be. So without even thinking about it I am making my edits sometimes bouncing around dancing, other times my heart swells, but the important thing is if I am feeling something. My current work playlist is as follows:

~Rolling in the Deep- Adele
~Sick Muse- Metric
~I and Love and You- Avett Brothers
~Crossfire- Brandon Flowers
~I Never Told You- Colbie Caillat
~I'm Not Calling You A Liar- Florence and the Machine
~Samson- Regina Spektor
~Be There- Howie Day
~Help, I'm Alive- Metric
~Little Lion Man- Mumford and Sons
~Starlight- Muse
~Head Full of Doubt/Road Full of Promises- Avett Brothers
~Conversation 16- The Nationals
~Eet- Regina Spektor
~Gravity- Sara Bareilles
~Come Home- One Republic
~Just Like Heaven- Charolotte Martin
~Operator- Jim Croce
~Between the Line- Sara Bareilles
~Jar of Hearts- Christina Perri (thanks for this MD, I love the song!)

Basically, I have chosen these songs for the emotional state they ease my mind into while playing softly in the background. Do you listen to music while you work and who is in your playlist?

“Music is what feelings sound like.”

Music is a great inspiration for me when I write. Emotions are felt in the songs, and remind me of certain situations or characters. I love seeing what songs inspire you in your work!!!
