Music To Compose By

I love the music of Enya. There's just something about her voice. It does not distract me, it only calms my soul. This is what music should be.

I agree that it is too confusing to listen to lyrics while writing. In fact its too confusing to do anything but sing in my case. LOL

lol! I've tried Enya, but for the most part, I'm a horror writer. Ghost stories and the like. Enya often puts me in the wrong mood to yell "boo"!

Depending on my mood and what I'm writing I like Enya and sometimes Tangerine Dream. There's an album called Tyger that I've listened to off and on for years. It has a few tunes with words, sort of, but much of it's lyric free.

You guys are going to love my fix for this dilemma. When I want music with lyrics that are not distracting, I listen to Japanese pop via Japan-A-Radio. Works great for me because, even though I am of Japanese ancestry, I don't understand the language. Music with lyrics without the distraction of sing-along.

Sumocat,

That's pretty creative, but if Japanese pop radio is like US pop radio, within a week I'll be singing in Japanese because of the heavy rotation!

Cool blog - find it hard to believe that you have put this much effort into blogging about just this though - why not try blogging on verizon cellular phone sometime?

Anonymous dude, that was a joke, right? Seriously, whatever rocks your boat. But I'm thinking this is a paid advertising site, right?

About Me

My photo
This is me and one of my two cats. His name is Cougar, and he’s an F1 Chausie. A chausie is a new breed of cat under development. Chausies are the result of a cross between a domestic cat (in Cougar’s case, a Bengal) and a jungle cat (Felis Chaus). Cougar’s mom is 8 pounds and his father is a 30-pound jungle cat. He’s about 16 pounds, super intelligent, spirited, and toilet trained. A writer without a cat (or two) is not to be trusted.
