I’ve thought about this post for a while now. Music. I love music. All kinds of music, from Classical to Pop and Rock to Jazz. You name it, I’ll listen to it.
99% of them can’t hold a note when singing, let alone play one on an instrument. And let’s face it: Boyzone, The Backstreet Boys, New Kids On The Block…You’re fucking blokes now!!
Apologies, got a bit off kilter there. Take a breath! In…out…in…out. Funnily enough, that’s what David Beckham has playing on his MP3 player, you know!
Right, my point to this post is music in stories/films. Music that inspires a certain moment, a feeling, an action. I usually have music playing while I type away at my novel or short stories, and it usually consists of random stuff rather than a full album from one artist. I find a certain piece of music can change a scene from one thing to another. It can invoke so much emotion.
If I could ever have one piece of music for one of my stories, or for a major scene in a novel it would be the following. For me, it has everything. Especially about 3:10 into it. If you don’t “feel” it…..there’s no hope for you at all!
Thoughts on your choices are welcome.
