Hello there !
I don’t know about you, but for me it is almost impossible not to have some music in my ears when I’m writing letters. So this will be the theme of my third blog post: a small glimpse of what my “writing playlist” contains.
This one is among my all time favorite songs. The first Nightwish song I listened, and the song that made me want to listen more songs by this band, which now is one of my top 5 favorites.
Another one by Nightwish. This is a very long song (13 min) and I just love the atmosphere of this song, the way it makes me feel… it’s hard to explain, but I always totally get into the song, like I would get into a story. I’m not sure if that makes sense at all? Anyway, this is one of my favorite songs too.
A classical piece everyone knows, I guess, since it has been used in countless movies and commercials. I really like the way the music grows louder and louder throughout the piece. I have also learned to play it on the piano and that’s one of my fave pieces to play.
This one I doubt you know because it’s not exactly mainstream, unless you’re from Norway maybe. It’s my favorite song from the Norwegian band (former band actually, because they split up quite recently) Kaizers Orchestra, which had been recommended to me by a Norwegian girl I used to chat with on Interpals. I used to teach myself Norwegian (had to stop unfortunately because of lack of time) and I was looking for songs in this language to listen to to get used to the sound of it, but I really didn’t expect to find a new favorite band then! Oh and I also love the music video of this one. Of course I don’t watch it while writing letters, but I’ve watched it so many times that I know it by heart and have the images it in my head when listening to the song
And this one is the latest addition to my writing playlist. I discovered this Swiss band quite recently and I’m currently listening through their whole discography because I really like their music! I especially like that some of their songs are sung in a Swiss dialect, I don’t understand a single word of it but I like the sound. Also most of the songs I listen to are in English, so a bit of change never hurts 😉
This will be all for this time. There are many more songs in my writing playlist but I’ll introduce them to you in another blogpost, later.
Do you listen to music while writing? Which songs are in your writing playlist?
