What's Your Writing Playlist?

I love music, and it's a part of just about everything I do. I even have a "Play it Loud" list for driving on the interstate in the red Mustang.

 I was asked recently what's on my playlist for writing. And it depends...

With fifteen different, themed playlists with hundreds of hours of music, I usually listen to rock or country with a fast pace and uplifting words. I write and edit better when there's a beat. These are my favorites right now:

  • Kid Rock
  • Florida Georgia Line
  • Train
  • Pharrell Williams (He's from Virginia Beach too.)
  • Colbie Caillat
  • Neon Trees
  • Fun.
  • Bruno Mars
  • Sara Bareilles
  • Uncle Kracker

But, I also often go back to old friends:

  • Van Halen
  • Elvis
  • UB40
  • Prince
  • Billy Joel
  • Elton John
  • Culture Club
  • Duran Duran

And if you're a mystery writer who's stuck, put on Train's "50 Ways to Say Goodbye." He offers a variety of ways to get rid of that annoying character.

What do you listen to when you write? Is there a specific genre that works best for you?
