Some Monday musical inspiration

I'm lucky enough to get a program called Guitar Center Sessions on my TV programming--basically, it's an hour-long show featuring a band or artist. They play, and talk about their beginnings, what inspires them, etc. I love this show. For some odd reason, it sparks my creativity as a writer.

 Does music inspire you too? Any favorites?

 Here's OneRepublic being awesome:

  1. I;m going to look for that. I love that sort of show. Different things inspire me different days. But I cannot listen to music with words while reading or writing. So a lot of classic music.

  2. I only use music sometimes to drown out noise (like when I'm writing at the food court or something). I haven't listened to classical in a while, should try that again...

  3. 16 Horsepower's "Brimstone Rock" always want to write post-apocalyptic because it sounds like the end of the world.

  4. I used to listen to Evanescence for dark mood writing :-)

  5. Fleur, thanks for bringing this show to my notice. Music inspires me to the extent that it puts me in a good mood. I don't have favourites but I listen to all kinds of songs including sentimental stuff like "What A Wonderful World" by Louis Armstrong, "Those Were the Days" by Mary Hopkins, and "Love Is a Many Splendored Thing" by The Four Aces. I love the old classics. I also enjoy listening to Peter Frampton, Frank Sinatra, Engelbert Humperdinck, Foreigner, Carpenters, BeeGees, Scorpions, REM, Sarah Brightman (soprano), ABBA, and Perry Como among several others.

  6. I love all of those too, Prashant. The classics always put me in a good mood as well. Sinatra was my grandmother's favorite, so his music always makes me think of her :-)
