What rocks YOUR socks?

Personally I love to listen to music when I write. It helps me write so much. I mean I can't really write without it, well I can but I would rather not. I know this is rather different for many, but for me I love music. So here is my playlist.

  1. Still Loving you - Scorpions
  2. Boulavard of Broken Dreams, American Idiot, Know your enemy - Green Day
  3. Better than me, Lips of an angel - Hinder
  4. Wait and Bleed - Slipknot
  5. In the End, What I've done, Bleed it out - Linkin Park
  6. Pain, Break - Three Days Grace
  7. Lithium - Evanessence
  8. Devil on my shoulder - Billy Talent
  9. Fade to Black - Metallica
  10. Say Goodnight - Bullet for my valentine
So its interesting to know what music you listen to when you write or when you don't write! Comment guys, and of course rock on! :D


  1. -Rocks out-

    I can't listen to music with words while I write. I get too tangled up in the lyrics and realize that I've been transcribing the words of the song instead of the words of my story. Heh. So I listen to soundtracks...

    My favorite to write to are:
    Hans Zimmer's Angels and Demons, Sherlock Holmes
    John Williams' Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
    Maurice Jarre's Witness
    Some assorted stuff from Nicholas Hooper, Vivaldi, and Beethoven. =D

    But I love to listen to other stuff while brainstorming--nothing beats Coldplay for that!

  2. I listen to CDs. I put them on automatic recycle (there's a technical term for it, but I don't know it) and the music is just there in the background. I hear the first couple songs, then they disappear.

    The music? Everything from Fats Domino, Dire Straits, Joan Baez, Bach, Celtic, and Tuvvan throat music. "Listen" to some soundtracks too.

  3. Alyson: Never tried listening to soundtracks. I should give it a shot though. I actually listen to stuff while brainstorming too and lots of times when I am reading, lol. Silence is my enemy but it does depend on what I am reading and writing, I prefer mostly rock, alternative, metal and punk though...:D

    Kay: very cool! I actually haven't heard of lots of those bands/artists but I'll check em out :D

  4. I love listening to music as I write! I even make playlists on Itunes for my novels/WIPs. And sometimes when I'm procrastinating I make covers for them in Photoshop and everything.

    Though I do have to change the song for the scene I'm writing. No happy songs during death scenes or anything like that xD

  5. Bronwyn - Same here except I skip out on the covers. I wish I had the time, that would be very cool! Yeah I also change the songs for the scene yet I never find myself writing to very happy music.
