What music gets you in a writing mood?





I do most of my new writing at the local McDonalds. Too many distractions, and the constant temptation to check emails and facebook make it hard to focus on coming up with a first draft at home.

Usually, I spend the ten minute journey working through what I want to get written on that particular session, but every now and then, I just play loud and lairy music to get me in a writing mood. Lately, I've been listening to the Sex Pistols at volume eleven, two of there songs in particular, Anarchy in the UK and Holidays in the Sun (you can watch the videos on their official website) have me raring to go by the time I pull up in the parking lot.

Most tracks on Thin Lizzy's, Johnny the Fox also do the trick, as does Raise that Body, by the Guttersnipes.



How about you?

I don't listen to music before or during my writing. On occasion, I'll listen to some Buffy or Angel soundtracks in the car while running errands, but that's about it for my foray into the music world. It's strange, because I used to listen to all kinds of music.

I suppose I still do listen to music in a way since my kids play their music and sing along--so I get some Michael Jackson from my oldest daughter; Selena Gomez, Taylor Swift, and Demi Lovato from my second daughter. Oldest and youngest sons don't listen to much music other than what plays on their video games.
