    I write best in total silence. But I'm the type who doesn't have a radio or TV going during the day and can live without either at night.

    At times I've listened to romantic oldies written in minor keys.

    Favorite atmosphere for writing? At night during a heavy thunderstorm.

    Just so you won't think I'm totally weird, I do drive a convertible and have a rocking playlist titled Top Down Songs - which I play full blast. tee-hee

    Those of you who've been around a while may remember a band called Alphaville. They never actually made it big in Japan. They did however do a bunch of songs that became reasonably popular over here in Europe.

    Today, I discovered that a friend (okay, an old distant aquiantance) made a cover of their track A Victory of Love, and it's not actually half bad. You'll find it here: 06 A Victory of Love by Strauss ex Machina | Free Listening on SoundCloud

    Heavy Metal always gets the creative juices flowing.

    Pandora's classic symphonic radio today. I've fine tuned it for the most part so I get plenty of flutes and strings. Now it sounds like anywhere between 1300-1600 medieval/renaissance Europe. Parfait.

    Have fun getting that out of your heads, guys. I know I've had it stuck in mine for three days now--just passing it on. :tongue:

    I don't even need to listen to it for it to stick in my head. :p

    I've been editing to merengue, aka Dominican fiesta music for those who don't know what it is. Maybe it's the upbeat rhythm that helps me focus but I finished edits on a novelette in one afternoon. :D No way I could write fresh words to that though.
     
  10. I just bought the cd of the soundtrack to the first Assassin's Creed by Jesper Kyd. Great stuff, the music in that series wasn't quite the same after he left.

    Assassin's Creed has awesome music second only to Skyrim. :D

    I'll admit to occasionally popping on the 'Civilisation' game series anthology. It's pretty awesome for worldbuilding while you're writing.

    (Though if you find yourself wanting to US militamen the hell out of those pesky Persians, you're probably taking it a bit too far.)
