    Songs as your backdrop

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Elgaisma, Aug 9, 2010.

    When you write do you have any particular songs that form the backdrop to your book or almost tell your story? Most of my major characters have a song that describes them or their relationship with main character

    These are some of mine.

    Satellite - Lena
    What about us? - John Barrowman
    Someone Elses Dream - Michael Ball
    Greatest Man I Never Knew - Michael Ball/Reba McIntyre
    Changes - Will Young
    Running in the Family - Level 42
    Greatest Day -Take That
    Walk of Life - Billie Piper
    If you were the only girl in the world -Michael Ball
    Bow Down Mister - Boy George

    While writing the 5th chapter of my first story, 2 days ago, I just had Whitney Houston's "The Bodyguard" OST on repeat.
    Most of the times, when I write, I like to listen to slow songs/ballads and instrumental songs.

    Yeah I do the same as Silviu. I listen to different styles of music when i´m writing. I choose the style that´s the most appropriate for the type of scene i´m planning on writing. I can´t really write without music :redface:

    I'm the same, I mostly listen to 'Third Day' and 'Casting Crowns'.

    They're Christian bands and although I can't stand the preaching type, most of their music is subtle but thought provoking, moving and definitely inspiring.
