My Creative Writing Playlist – Updated

Hi everyone,

I have been listening to some different music recently while I’ve been writing, and I thought I would share it with you all. I’ve been a little more distracted than usual lately, so I haven’t really been able to listen to anything with English lyrics. I have finally found some music that really helps me to block out the rest of the world, and even some of my doubtful thoughts. Let’s get into it!

  1. Haerra by Ásgeir Trausti
  2. Living Room Songs by Ólafur Arnalds
  3. Archduke Trio by Beethoven
  4. For Now I Am Winter by Ólafur Arnalds
  5. Fourth of July by Sufjan Stevens

Do you have any particular songs that help to keep you focused on your writing? Let me know in the comments.

All the best,

  1. I LOVE this question! I’ve used so many different playlists over the years for writing my novels, almost all of which are film scores. Here are a handful:

    Road to Perdition – Thomas Newman
    The Shawshank Redemption – Thomas Newman
    White Oleander – Thomas Newman
    In a Time Lapse – Ludovico Einauldi
    Nuovo Morceau Subrosa – BT
    If the Stars are Eternal, so are You and I – BT

    Specific tracks:
    “Posturing Through Metaphysical Collapse” – Eluvium
    “Don’t Get Any Closer” – Eluvium
    “Millstone” – Eisley
    “Five Senses” – Violents

    Good call, by the way, with For Now I am Winter. LOVE that one.
