Rainy Saturday Music Playlist

Music is a huge part of my creative process, whether it is grooving in the car thinking up new ideas or playing the same songs over and over to catch a mood for a particular scene. Sometimes I obsess on a song for weeks at a time. With time being such a precious commodity, music shortcuts the time for me to get in “the writing zone.”

I’ll be updating my playlist on Saturdays.

It’s been raining in Georgia off and on for the last month. Sort of feels like Seattle… Must get more coffee…

Obsessing on “Rainy Monday” by Shiny Toy Guns
“When It Rains” by Paramore is on my playlist
Listening to “Raining Again” by Moby
“Let It Rain” by OK Go is also on play
Feeling nostalgic with “Only Happy When It Rains” by Garbage

When I was in the seventh grade, my best friend’s mom drove us to middle school each morning. She was cool because she’d just gotten a new car, which had a CD player in it. We listened to this song on the way to school EVERY DAY.

So…. the last song on my list is “November Rain” by Guns N’ Roses. I really, really loved this song when I was thirteen.

    G-n-R: Quality early 90s nostalgia!
    Garbage: Quality mid-90s nostalgia!
    The thrill of discovering a car with a CD player!
    Great memories. :-)

      Remember when cars had cassette decks instead of USB ports? I miss making mix tapes.

      I’ll never be committed enough to get a tattoo. I change my mind way too often.

    Dude! I have always loved this song. I choreographed a dance piece to this song back in high school.

      Everything is better with a guitar solo. I’d love to see what a dance routine would look like to this song. I’m sure it is awesome!

    Most of the music sounds better with rain in background :) Hence someone of brilliant, brilliant mind created this ! Rainymood and The Greenhornes with East grand blues (EP) album :D

      Rainymood is so cool. I already have a dozen songs in mind I want to pair it with. I also ran across the Greenhorns + Holly Golightly song today. Don’t know how I missed knowing about it because it was super cool and she lives in Georgia too. /sigh
