I love music. All kinds. Today is New Music Tuesday, and I am always on the hunt for something new to listen to! Your suggestions are appreciated.
Now on to the real post. I've found myself lately listening to an 80's New Wave / Alternative + early 90's Alternative / Grunge play list. New Order, Joy Division, Depeche Mode, Echo & the Bunnymen, Siouxie and the Banshees, The Cure, Yaz, Violent Femmes, Pearl Jam, Nirvana, REM, RHCP - I could literally go on all day about music! It takes me back to high school, and what it was like to have a crush on the boy next door (hint, hint). It puts me in the proper mind set for my WIP. I really believe that the music that was at your core in your teen / formative years is the music you tend to revert to in adulthood for comfort and general enjoyment. I always gave my mom a hard time about her music - Zeppelin, Beatles, The Who, The Stones, Jimi, Janis...but I realize today it's no different than me listening now to the bands from my youth. Oh my youth, where are you?
So, what music gets you in the mood?(Get your minds out of the gutter - I'm talking about writing!)
