If you follow my blog with a moderate amount of dedication you will have noticed that every Sunday I’ve been highlighting a track the helps me write but last week I changed things up. I threw you a curve ball and instead when with a song not to improve my writing but to improve my mood.
And it seemed like people kind of liked it. So I want to keep highlighting happy songs (because sometimes sticking your head in the musical sand and pretending things aren’t so bad is pretty nice). But I’m not going trash the writer’s music. No siree. I’m going ot do both… it secretly feeds my obsessive need to talk about music so why wouldn’t I?
Writer’s Music Highlight
I haven’t the words to adequately express how this piece makes me feel. It soothes and calms me, but there’s a real feel of forward momentum. The pulsing chug of a train on it’s tracks, taking you to the one place you feel at home. (Home has been cropping up a lot in my blog lately, I’m a bit homesick and also heading home next weekend.)
I hope you enjoy it and that it helps you write the way it helps me.
Finding music week in week out that just makes you feel a little bit better might be a tough task. And because music is so subjective I’m not always going to hit the mark for everyone. But if I can just help one person feel a little bit better then I guess the little effort has been worth it.
Get your dancing shoes on (or you best slippy socks) and get swinging around the house. I challenge you to listen without at least tapping your foot or bouncing your head along to the rhythm. And when you can’t do it, just give in and be happy. You don’t have to be a good dancer to dance at home… I’m not… I dance like Napoleon Dynamite…
