We all like specific types of music and different music inspires different things.
I’ll be frank, I mostly listen to video game soundtracks while writing – but that doesn’t mean music with lyrics can’t inspire stories or ideas. While I write with (mostly) lyric-less music, I do enjoy a lot of music with lyrics and by listening to songs, ideas tend to spark in my mind. My current side-project, for example, was in part inspired by the song Haunted by the band Disturbed.
However, while writing Tales of The Forbidden, I tend to listen to the Persona 3 soundtrack. Here’s one of the songs from that soundtrack that manages to inspire various things. I could put it on repeat for hours. But don’t get me wrong: I love the entire soundtrack.
Which song inspires you the most? Do you work best with or without music? Let me know in the comments!
