A song which inspires – a tag
Aikaterine tagged me for a writer’s tag. She said:
Think of THE song that most inspires you to write, whether it gives you an idea for a story, script or just puts you into a better frame of mind AND/OR peek into the lyrics and find a verse that sums up the theme of whatever project it is you’re working on. If possible, post a video of the song to convey to readers the full context of the song and the mood it puts you into. Finally, send the assignment to five other writers to do as well.
A wonderful tag, but the problem was that I could not think of one song. Too many pieces of music inspire to write and put me in the right mood. A lot of this is Indian instrumental (sitar, santoor). Not vocal, just instrumental. I love the violin too. This type of music increases my concentration and focus, makes me go inwards…thereby helping me write.
But if there one song, there’s one which has been an all-time favourite with me…and it does put me in the right frame of mind to write. I wouldn’t say it gives me ideas or inspires me as much as instrumental music does, but it does put me in the mood to write. It always has, ever since I heard it. The song is Time, by Pink Floyd. You can listen to it here.
Time – Pink Floyd
Aikaternie has asked me to tag five other writers…well I am tagging those I know to be writers and if there is someone I have missed it’s only because I don’t know if the person is a writer.
I have also tagged one person who is a cartoonist, and he will have to think of the song which inspires him to create a cartoon. Or perhaps he can make a cartoon of it. So here goes in alphabetical order and remember, don’t be under any pressure to do the tag. It’s absolutely okay if you don’t.
Anyone else who wants to is free to do the tag.
