I like music.
However, I don’t listen to music when I write.
Sometimes, I do get ideas from music to write about though. All songs tell a story and it’s fun to pick apart what the song is saying and turn it into my own story creation.
I actually have a broad spectrum of music that I listen to which helps feed my imagination. I’m not too picky.
More times than not, I listen to music when I’m driving or at least in the car. At home, I listen to whatever my teenager has playing on her iPhone. Can’t help but sing along I’ve heard the same songs over and over so many times.
Now, if I were to turn on YouTube and pick my own songs to listen to, it would be similar to this list below, unfortunately leaving a lot out, no room to write them all.
(These are in no particular order)
- Just about anything Bruno Mars
Uptown Funk You Up, The Lazy Song, Just the Way You Are, When I Was Your Man, Marry You, Locked Out of Heaven, Count on Me and so on…

Definitely love that man! I went the whole winter season with “All I Want for Christmas Is You” as my ringtone, one of my favorite songs J
