Musing Music

This isn't the first time I've blogged about my Muse or inspiration, and as many of you know I write to Golden Silence, but that doesn't mean I don't love music or find it inspiring.

Jordin Sparks, One Step At A Time, is one such song. The lyrics apply so much to writing as any other form of art. The opening line for example, "Hurry up and wait
So close, but so far away" makes me think Ms. Sparks is waiting on a submission too.

So, for your viewing pleasure and inspiration-induced happiness, I've embedded the music video here for you to watch.

Now what about you? Do you have a song that you just love or find inspiring? Do share!

Thanks for the video. That's a very inspiring song. So perfect for her, too.

I know, right? Sometimes I forget that it's not easy for anyone.

I song I absolutely love to write to (though I tend to write in silence as well) -- probably not the norm -- is 'Til I Collapse, by Eminem (and am absolutely thrilled that it's the commercial song for COD: MW2)

I have a hard time listening to words in music when I write- my brain can't handle it. But I love listening to Yo-Yo Ma- something about that cello just gets my creative juices boiling.

Bane - I like Eminem when I'm working out. He keeps me motivated and pumped up, so I can see how that would apply to writing.

Steph - I love Yo-Yo Ma. I saw him in concert a couple of years ago and he was amazing. One of my favorites is FLIGHT OF THE BUMBLE BEE which features Yo-Yo and Bobby McFerrin. They're both so talented.
