Am I The Only One?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAMusical talent is not something that I can claim, not even a little bit but I am really good at listening to it. Whenever I’m in a good mood or a bad mood I can find the music to fit me. It really should be no wonder then that I flip my ITunes on random when I am facing writer’s block, anyone else do the same thing? Do you ever find a song or a lyric that just grabs you and all you can do is hold on? It’s happened to me more times than I can count. This post being a perfect example, whenever I am looking to escape reality there is no man for me but Jimmy Buffett.

“He decided he wanted to live in a fantasy world and I thought what’s wrong with that?”-Buffett

Ain’t Nothing Wrong With That.

If Jimmy Buffett can make it as a Pirate, I can make it as a writer… who happens to enjoy a really great Margarita πŸ˜‰

Is it 5pm yet?

  1. MY FAVORITE album, by my favorite group (BLood, Sweat and Tears) was cut the weekend I first went out with my husband. I enjoy all kinds of music and I briefly worked for my cousin who did rock and roll ads. My daughter and I listened to “Father Is Child To The Man) by BS&T almost every day on the way to school.

    So…No…you are NOT the ONLY one

  2. Thanks for liking my book blog! I have my Pandora set for specific thoughts and chapters. Music (for me) is crucial to get in the mood. I can write without the music, but my stories are much stronger with it. Oh, and a glass of wine too.

    Horror = Nine Inch Nails style (Filter, Chevelle, Tool, etc)
    Love = classical & Sara MacLachlan stuff
    Erotica = Timbaland, Rhianna, Usher style
    Pivotal chapters = Plumb, BarlowGirl, Josh Groban
    And my brain reset music is hands down, contemporary Christian.

  3. You can never go wrong with Jimmy Buffet! (The one singer my husband and I both agree on!) Thanks for liking my blog today, and it took me longer to find out I HAVE to write than it did you, so good for you. I know this because I am just now writing my first book, and I am older than dirt!
    Good luck in your endeavors, and I will enjoy checking out your blog.

  4. My music preference is Smooth Jazz. When not listening to that there is always a tune playing in my head. Great blog. Thanks for visiting Life’s Little Surprises. Blessings.

  5. Hi Literarylandofalysia. \thank you for liking my poem ‘ He Said’. Music is very important to me and I like to listen as I write. Best Wishes The Foureyed Poet.

  6. Thank you for visiting my site and liking the poem. I must say that no you are not the only one. πŸ™‚ Music is a passion with me too…… I will be visiting your blog as well and hope to read more about your passion and also discover a few more gems… keep sharing and recommending songs that touch your heart

  7. Life is too short not to follow your dreams. If we persist, sometimes we are fortunate enough to live them. However, if you don’t go after them, you will never know.
