I joined www.playlist.com for their ability to create embeddable playlists... their available tracks leaves something to be desired IMHO, but at least I can get the gist across here.
I'm an enthusiastic builder of playlists for my writing, so I was ready for this blogfest. My WIP, Orbital Shifts, currently has a playlist of 22 songs and here are some of them.
It's a combination of what's available on playlist.com and what's a good sample of the tracks. There are a couple I wish I could have put in here, but they're not available. Namely:
- "Little Black Heart" by a-ha. My iTunes has a way of throwing up random songs that really hit me while I'm writing. This one happened last night, in the middle of a dark scene. It's been in my head all day.
- "Never Wanted This" by Armin van Buuren.
- "Pax Deorum" by Enya. Apparently she's not hip enough for playlist.com or something.
Those are all sad songs -- the sample playlist runs on the angry side and the playlist actually has a good dose of sad.
Now off to tour other playlists... I love finding new musicians that I like...
