Music for Writing

I'm not talking about music that reminds you of your book, or music you listen to while writing. Sometimes, hearing a song just reminds me of what I'm feeling about my writing. These are the songs for me, not my book or characters or setting. Just for me.

The fabulous Regina Spektor's song Eet reminds me of those times I'm in despair and wondering why the heck am I doing this again?
A song that always reminds why it is that I write is Unwritten by Natasha Bedingfield.
And if I ever feel like just giving up, Josh Groban's You Are Loved always puts me in a better mood.

Do you have any "you" songs for writing, or life, that you feel are just meant for you?


  1. Those are great songs! I'm always on the lookout for good music.

  2. Unwritten reminds me to get writing as well. The movie "Wonder boys" puts me in the mood to write too. I'd like to see what other songs have an effect on writers.

  3. Wow. What a great group of songs :) Thanks for sharing, Jenna!

  4. Thanks for introducing me to some new music. I like Muse a lot and I'm a big Elvis Costello fan.

  5. These are all great songs. I especially love Regina Spektor. I love the idea of having a song that reminds you why you write. I have to figure out what mine is. :)
