It’s no secret to any of you that I love music. It’s a form of creativity that I’ve never really invested enough time in for my own happiness. Though I don’t really think there is enough time for that.

I’ve always said that art feeds art. Music and writing, in my opinion, are the best companions. You want to keep in mind that song writers are writers. Like the rest of us, they often create art about their art. About the process and the emotions that come from being a writer, an entertainer, a story teller.

Other times song inspire everyone, anyone, to be their very best. I’ve spent a lot of time creating a playlist on YouTube of both sort of songs for when I’m having trouble writing. These aren’t great for mood setting, or for while I’m actually writing. But this is the best morning playlist for a writer that I could make. Some are old, some are new. They span genres because I listen to a little bit of everything. But I defy anyone to listen to these songs and not want to be the best version of themselves.
