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 “A Real Hero” by College feat. Electric Youth
Listening to “Under Your Spell” by Desire
“Destroy Everything You Touch” by Ladytron is on my playlist
Also listening to “Theme from Mirrors Edge” by Lisa Miskovsky
“Major Tom” by Shiny Toy Guns is the rotation
Enjoying “It Gets Dark” by Holy Ghost!
Just added the new Heritage soundtrack by College
TRON: Legacy soundtrack by Daft Punk is also on my playlist

Sometimes I enjoy a change of pace.

    That Tron: Legacy soundtrack is great for getting work done.

      It’s a pretty good soundtrack, I agree. Daft Punk is always good stuff.

      That’s some epic writing music. The Gladiator sountrack is quite enjoyable; I used to listen to it a bunch when I was in school for my undergrad.

        Yeah, It gets the creative juices flowing. Tron legacy soundtrack can get the writing flow. I was going to add “Anvil of Crom Conan the barbarian sdtrk,” but i figured not to jinx the writing mojo ;)

      Awww, shucks! Ladytron and Shiny Toy Guns are bands I go back to when I need a certain vibe. I think that will be a great song for your MC. ;)
