On Sunday #nzbloggers hosted a bloggers chat about our favourite music and whether we write when listening to music. I hate silence and I love listening to music as I write and as I drive etc. So, I thought I’d do a post on my favourite music for writing.
When I blog I love having music playing in the background.
Here is a list of my favourite songs for blogging.
- Any song by Gin Wigmore.
Ok, so I know I said that I would specify songs, but seriously, how can I choose just ONE song by Gin Wigmore that I listen to when writing.
She has a beautiful voice, excellent songs and I think that she is definitely one of my favourite singers of this era.
Here is an example:
2. Blackbird by The Beatles.
The Beatles were a top band. I think that they would be a band I’d go back in time to see.
I listen to this song when I am going to write about something sad.
3. We Are The Champions by Queen.
I know the words to most of Queens songs. This is no exception. This is my “I’m feeling proud and I have so much inspiration to write!” song.
4. Bei Mir Bist Du Schon by the Swing Dance Orchestra.
It is such a fun song – I do love the Andrews Sister’s version – but this one is so cool. I always find myself dancing along in my head with it. I find music like this really gets my brain working.
-sorry, can’t find them on youtube but they are on spotify.
5. Paris by Yael Naim.
This is in French and I don’t understand a word of it but I just love the song. It sounds beautiful. French always sounds nice.
6. La liste by Rose.
This is another French singer. Once again I don’t fully understand what the song is about.
What about you? Do you have any songs that you love listening to when you are writing or are you a write in silence person?
