Thought I’d post some youtube vids of music I listen to when writing or doing anything really… Tastes do vary of course. Most of mine is video game music as I usually find music without lyrics to be more… interesting.
I’ll open with;
Laura’s Theme (Silent Hill 2) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GBYsdw4Vwx8 (How can you not like it? O_o)
Feel no Fear (Chaos Legion) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AvlfNZ685B8
Battle for everyone’s souls (Persona 3) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yz1yrVcpWjA
Cordova Town (Castlevania) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-BmGDtP2t7M
An obvious one here just for nostalgia - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UbAy4MfmKrE&list=PL0E115AD112D31758&index=24 (It’s the FF7 main theme)
I have a lot of Final Fantasy tracks on my playlist for when I’m writing… Nobuo Uematsu is just an amazing talent;
I have “Rose of May” (Beatrix FF9 theme), Those whom I must protect (Beatrix/Steiner themes merged), Never look back (ff8 running away music), Force your way (FF8 boss battle music), Succession of witches (FF8 Edea’s theme I think), Gagazet “People of the north pole” theme, Sin battle theme, boss battle theme, Seymour final battle theme, The splendid Performance, Ending Theme, To Zanarkand, Someday the dream will end and finally; Thunder Plains (ALL from FFX’s themes)
And finally two honourable mentions to Suikoden 2 in http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1vWFZ7XU6eI&fmt=18 (HQ theme) and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F2LONGQf-oQ&fmt=18 “A prayer to my mother” both of which, go on loops with some FFX tracks when I want to get in the mood to write some sad morbid depressing stuff.
Anyone else got some favourite tunes to share for listening to as you write?
