My Writing Playlist

I received an email from a reader the other day that asked what my writing playlist was. At first I wanted to say “Supernatural episodes on repeat,” but I knew what she meant.

This got my hamster running. I hadn’t really given much thought to what I listened to specifically when writing. Let me say this though– I am a music tramp. I love listening to anything and everything with a beat. This means that my playlist changes often and is usually random to the naked untrained eye.

So! I am going to share my current playlist that I listen to when I’m doing practically anything that requires me to breathe.

  1. Cassie O’ – George Ezra
  2. Afire Love – Ed Sheeran
  3. One – Ed Sheeran
  4. Hook – Blues Traveler
  5. Better Man – Pearl Jam
  6. Cream – Prince (I was not lying when I gave the random disclosure, wait it gets better)
  7. Midnight Train to Georgia – Gladys Knight
  8. Shake It Off – Taylor Swift
  9. Shut Up and Dance with Me – Walk the Moon
  10. Pony – Ginuine

Seriously. I was not lying. I listen to EVERYTHING – clearly at the same time. I’m ok with that though. Because I’m a perfectionist, I feel like I need to provide the reasoning behind each song and why they are ALL on one list.

The “belt it out” tunes

  • Hook
  • Midnight Train to Georgia

The “I just need five minutes” tunes

  • Afire Love
  • Better Man
  • One

The “dance it out” tunes

  • Shake It Off
  • Cassy O’
  • Pony
  • Shut Up and Dance with Me

And because Prince is the most fabulous creature on the planet – he needs no category. I just love him.
