Wednesday’s work: My latest playlist

Like a lot of other writers, I use a music playlist to help with creativity. When I create new playlist, I’ll often list to it obsessively while I go over and over certain scenes in my mind. By doing this I can work out plot kinks, generate new ideas, and maintain a high level of energy for a project.

This playlist is for my new project. While I have the project named, I haven’t gone public with it yet.

At first I felt AC/DC’s Thunderstruck was too hard rock and “shouty” for me… but as I’ve listened to it repeatedly I’ve gradually become obsessed with it. 🙂

Where the Streets Have No Name, U2

Animal, Animal Photograph

Immigrant Song, Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross & Karen O

Feel It Still, Portugal. The Man

Policy of Truth, Depeche Mode

Thunderstruck, AC/DC

Live and Let Die, Guns N’Roses
