Question!


I'm thinking about creating a Music playlist for when I write. Any suggestions? Do you all listen to music when you write? What do you like to listen to?

I can't listen to music with lyrics so I listen to odd things like trap or classical.



I seemed to be looking down from an immense height upon a twilit grotto, knee-deep with filth, where a white-bearded daemon swineherd drove about with his staff a flock of fungous, flabby beasts whose appearance filled me with unutterable loathing.

Just keep writing and the good stuff will come.

Thanks for your reply! What do you mean by "trap"?

Generally, trap is kind of like dub/dance without many words and features a buildup, a drop/chorus, at least one breakdown, then another drop or two. Itís known for hard-hitting big bass, driving beats, and strange, strange instruments and horn hits.

Hereís a chill favorite of mine:

and a harder hitting example of actual trap:

There are waaaay better examples out there, I just dropped a couple quickies. Anyhow, you get the gist.

The popular song ďTurn Down for WhatĒ is trap, mainstream style but the type I really dig.

Only instrumentals for me as well. Or sounds from ambient-mixer.com. Sometimes I stick on symphonic metal. Sometimes those meditation/relaxation things you find on YouTube that go on for 3 hours.

No music for me of any kind. I do like music, just not when I am writing.

Sometimes I can do music, but not if it has a catchy tune or melody. I can't do any with words at all. If I do, I start signing and start typing the words I'm singing.



Love and stuff,

Donít have a playlist to share (iTunes? YouTube?).

I do love rock, Alt. Americana, and anything really.

I donít mind words.

What do you like?




Yes, I see. Of course.

Definitely instrumental. I was listening to Beats Antique for awhile but then somehow I got a little sick of it.

Thanks so much, Skwerly, for turning me onto trap! I love the North End Night Life video--especially with the beat combined with violins! swoon

I can listen only to the classical music, Mozart in particular. But I don't do it that often, it kind of mutes my own thoughts and I can't concentrate. Never try Wagner for that purpose.

I've recently found Electro Swing, a hybrid of Swing and ...well, it's difficult to pigeonhole. One of the more notable artists include:

Parov Stelar

For sustained listening I like:
http://8tracks.com
because I can pick a genre and just let it play.

But I like music. Music with words, or without, and across the board -- no particular genre; music isn't for everyone, and then again neither am I.

So, there's that.




Yes, I see. Of course.
