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.

Obsessing on “Next Year” by Two Door Cinema Club
Listening to “It Gets Dark” by Holy Ghost!
“Lazy Eye” by Silversun Pickups is on my playlist
Also listening to “Post Blue (Dave Bascombe Mix)” by Placebo
Just added Metric’s “Dreams So Real” to my playlist
And of course “Time is Running Out” by Muse

Working on my new project. Very exciting, but I have a deadline to meet, and as I have mentioned, time is running out.

    I put my playlist on Youtube with the videos. Sometimes when I’m stuck it helps to watch as well as to listen. :)

      Ooo, that’s a cool idea. I’ll have to try that out.

    That’s sweet. I actually posted a blog about music and being inspired. Glad I’m not the only one

      No worries, there’s lot of room for both music and inspiration.

    I’m just about to go on a very long bus journey and I’m looking for new tunes to keep me amused. Thanks for these, I shall check them out.

      Hope the bus ride went well, and I also hope you enjoyed some of the songs.

    Silversun Pickups are amazing. You should listen to the rest of Carnavas if you haven’t already. Future Foe Scenarios is a good tension/paranoia song.

      Yes, I do enjoy Silversun Pickups. I toss their album into the rotation when I’m trying to get a feel for cetain scenes. “Well Thought Out Twinkles” may be my favorite.
