❆ Mix 11 | kpopchild

I’ve come to realize that there are only a handful of songs (and few particular genres) that inspire me when it comes to writing. Regardless of how old these songs may be, these songs have something about them that really sticks to me and time after time I return to them for inspiration.

When writing I often listen to movie soundtracks (from Hollywood blockbusters and Korean dramas), as well as artists such as E.S. Posthumus, The Immediate, and the likes. I know people often find kind of music to be a bit too dramatic, but I find it entertaining and inspirational.

After wrapping up this selection for this winter mix, I’ve suddenly realized that a lot of the songs I chose are rather depressing. My collection in its entirety is ridiculously huge, so I’ve limited the playlist to the songs that I thought were wintery and inspirational – do check out other songs by the artists in this playlist if you have time.

Here’s to hoping these depressing songs will invoke your writing spirits this winter! Cheers!

❆ Mix 14 | JENNY*

Recently I’ve been listening to a lot of mellow, indie songs. The winter weather puts me into a comfortable, slow mood.

❆ Mix 16 | Calida [leelerson]

I don’t normally do a lot of creative writing these days, but I definitely edit. And unfortunately, because editing requires me to read, which requires me show HQ movies in my head (also another reason why I don’t partake in scary stories/movies), I allocate all my energy to reading aloud and mostly edit in silence. BUT alas, there are a few songs that I believe are quite timeless, and are flowing with inspiration; I always find myself coming back to these songs when I need “mood lighting” for my thoughts.

Song list for inspiration/mood lighting

(in no particular order other than alphabetical)

  1. 2NE1 – It Hurts (Official Instrumental)
  2. Aston – Confide In Me (Classical Cover of Kylie Minogue)
  3. Epik High – GHOST (INTERLUDE)
  4. Hillsong – Bones
  5. Hillsong United – Like an Avalanche – Devoshun Remix [Actually, I HIGHLY recommend the original too.]
  6. Lara Fabian – Dream Within [Old school, I know… :P]
  7. Meiko Kaji – The Flower Of Carnage (Kill Bill OST)
  8. Noel – 돌아가는 길 (이상곤 Solo)
  9. Tablo ft Lee Sora – Jib (Home)
