Writing playlist (With lyrics)
So lately I have been listening to actual songs when I write.
In order to write to songs they have to pass a specific tests for me.
1. The song can't be too distracting.
2. The lyrics should be imaginative
3. The music should be kind of dreamy
4. Nice steady beat that inspires creativity
That said, here's my current writing playlist:
Lions! by Lights
This song seems to define the moment where the hero discovers they must face their fear.
Book of Days by Enya
This song describes the journey, and how the hero changes along the way.
The Mummer's Dance by Loreena Mckennit
A mystic setting with dancing and magic.
Fuzzy Blue Lights by Owl City
A very dreamy song.
Brielle by Sky Sailing
Nostalgic and uplifting at the same time.
One Day by Trading Yesterday
The perfect love story.
Clocks by Coldplay
Imagination seems to be in every line of this song.
The Last Unicorn by America
An instant classic, and another setting.
Little Wonders by Rob Thomas
Simple moments that mean a lot to the characters in the story.
These Dreams by Heart
The power of dreams in literature.
Sanctuary by Utada Hikaru
A nice, safe place for the hero to go to when they are lost.
Return to Innocence by Enigma
A very imaginative song.
Once in Every Lifetime by Jem
A song from the writer to the character.
