A song by the Swedish band Logh. I claim no responsibility for the video!
I was thinking of a theme to use to collect a set of songs which I find moving or inspirational in different ways. I began with ‘the sea’, but soon got waylaid by travel/ journeys in general.
Anyway, here’s a short selection which I hope you find time to check out-
The Woodcutter – And Also The Trees
The Lighthouse – Interpol
The Smoke Will Lead You Home – Logh
Mermaid – The Search
Homing Pigeon – Scott Bradie
Terminus – Psychic TV
As ever, enjoy.
Writing can be tough. Sometimes inspiration seems to float away on the breeze like smoke from a candle. At times like these (or indeed at any other time!) Listening to music can be a boon. Ideas can come from anywhere, and a good challenge to get the juices going, I find, can be to listen to some music and try to use the lyric (could be just one line) to use as the basis for a story.
Someone (you know who you are) suggested I make a playlist of songs. At first this seemed easy, but, having slept on it now seems almost impossible – where does one start? However I have taken the bull by the horns and begun.
So here is the start of what, hopefully, will be a continuing list. I hope that someone out there checks some of this music out-
Red Valentino -And Also The Trees
Blake Says – Amanda Palmer
Second Soul – Black Swan Lane
All On The Black – Leya
Death to My Hometown – Logh
Subway – Pete Murphy
Lady of the Vines – Scott Bradie
Judgement – The Sound
The Letter – The Black Heart Procession
No Beacon – The Fallout Trust
Keeping up with the ideas isn’t as easy as you might think. Luckily there’s always plenty of good music around to inspire. Take heart from the mood or engulf yourself in the lyric – it all counts.
Listening to The Search, Logh, Leya, PJ Harvey and And Also The Trees.
Some great inspiration here.
