    Just my tearjerker music of the moment... Perfect for some wistful writing.

    I listen to this, and I only hear regrets.

    ^^ One of my favorite bands. Even got kicked in the jaw at one of their concerts. :)

    Pandora: Jeremy Soule station with gaming soundtracks, most of them fantasy related. I have a lot of words to write today so this will be a boon.

    Current favorite among recently discovered songs: Containst the line "do you recognize the songs that reflect your light" which has gotten stuck in my head in all kinds of ways lately.

    Can someone cry about this song with me? This is HEARTBREAKING. And it's not the story, either. It's something in how tenderly the narrator speaks, in contrast to the harsher/grungier undertones of the song...I don't know. Somehow it struck the right chord with me.

    Okay, I am going to show my age here. My all time favorite song (and has been since it came out in '77).

    Rush - Xanadu

    Warning: It is 11 minutes long

    Got reminded to share my music - thanks Chessie. This is the song currently playing. It's in Faroese (unless I'm mistaken) and it's quite representative of the mood/setting of my current story:

    ^^My husband has been obsessed with Swedish music lately. Not that he understands a lick of it.

    Well, if that's the way it is...
    This song was originally written by Swedish 18th century poet Carl Michael Bellman and here performed by 80's rock band Imperiet - probably best known for its singer, punk rock legend Joakim Thåström:

    Not that I'd call this rock, but it's absolutely awesome still - especially if you understand the lyrics. :p

    Been listening to a lot of Green Day lately. Between their new album and the performance they gave at the AMAs the other night, I feel they're more relevant now than they've been in a while.
