Music is very important in my life. Besides writing, it is one of the only things that can calm my mind. While I usually don’t listen to music while writing, I do listen to certain songs before I write in order to focus my thoughts.
I write Science Fiction Romance or Alien Romance, so my song selection is limited when it comes to songs about aliens. There are some out there though and of course, I love them. J
Here is my playlist for my upcoming release, Celestial Seduction which will be part of Decadent Publishing’s 1NightStand series:
E.T. by Katy Perry ft. Kanye West
I downloaded this song before the video came out, so my version does not include Kanye West, but I still love this song. On the CD I have in the van, this song is back to back with Born This Way by Lady Gaga and my daughter and I sing to them both very loud.
Spaceman by Bif Naked
I have been listening to this song for as long as I can remember. It is a must for me on any playlist. Usually (as in E.T.), songs talk about alien abductions, but this song talks about an alien rescue. My kind of song! J
Come Sail Away by Styx
I’m a Styx fan and this song has so many memories attached to it. Takes a while to get to the part about the aliens, but it is there.
The Call by Regina Spektor
This song has nothing to do with aliens, but it is very inspirational when it comes to my writing. It always seems to help me out of a funk, such as when I don’t know where to take my story next.
Men In Black by Will Smith
I can’t write about aliens and not listen to this song. Another classic.
Do you know of any other songs involving aliens out there? If you write SFR, what songs do you listen to for inspiration in your writing?
