I have been asked several times what kind of music I listen to when I’m writing, and I think it was Stephanie Meyer that was so vocal about Muse when she wrote that the two became interlinked.
I have different music depending upon my mood. As I’m currently working on ‘Of Blood and Feathers’ I need something that I like, but it’s too distracting. Recently I’ve been listening to Charlie Simpson’s ‘Young Pilgrim’ on repeat, the Silent Hill 2+3 OSTs if I need to get in a creepy/depressing/sad mood. Josh Groban is also great to have on in the background. 30 Seconds to Mars are always on my playlist, but I find I can’t writ too well when I have them on as I get so absorbed in the music.
I’ve also recently gotten back into Sophie B Hawkins, The Backstreet Boys (lol), Jack Jone’s ‘Waiting, wishing’, Incubus (the older stuff), The Crow original soundtrack.
Fightstar’s Grand Unification is also a great one if you are writing something distopian as the whole album has that feel to it.
What are you listening to right now?
