Music for the Masses
I’m a musical person. I listen to music for artistic inspiration; I listen to music to keep my exercise stamina strong; and I listen to music because I like it. Duh.
When people share music with me, I enjoy that — even if I may not like the music they suggest, I still appreciate the gesture. I like sharing music I discover as well. Back in my first years of university (early 2000s), my goal was to make every person I knew addicted to Muse like I was. Ahhhh… I still love Muse’s old albums, though their newer stuff isn’t for me.
And so to finally get to the point of this long, convoluted explanation: I wanted to share what I’m listening to and loving right now.

I’m more of a Brahms kind of girl when it comes to music for writing inspiration. But there are a couple here that I really like for pump-me-up kind of music. Must go download them. 🙂

Yeah, for writing I don’t listen to anything with words (except opera). But I like happy pop and rock for all other facets of my life. 🙂

Yargh. I can’t watch that video because I don’t live in the States… Can you tell me what it is so I can look it up?

Try pagewash.com and proxy into youtube.com. Might work. If not, go to
Audio, no video. It’s “The Time Has Come Today” by the Chambers Brothers.
I emailed you the typos I found in Spirit-Hunters.
