Yes the topic is sort of some kind of reference to the infamous Motley Crue album.
Anyway, I would like to share with you all the things that I listen to, generally, that either inspire me or at least encourages me to write things.
Usually, and this might be obvious considering my source, I prefer the instrumental tracks (words seem to distract me!) and such, and my number-one go-to source for that is the MechWarrior 2 soundtrack. I find it inspiring, calming at times, and with the emphasis on various Native American tribal thematics - e.g. Clan Wolf, Clan Jade Falcon - I believe it has a nice sort of feel and vibe to the animal-side or such.
Another thing I often listen to while writing is the soundtrack from the games Doom and Doom II. The way they are designed mostly to loop around seems to have a positive effect on me when I am writing and working. Also sometimes I throw in various tracks from Command & Conquer, to help flesh out a nice long playlist for a good long writing session.
I hope this inspires some people, I know when I listen to the MechWarrior 2 soundtrack, I feel much strong pull, perhaps nostalgia, of the big Mechs and such. It makes it more conducive to writing about my big Mechs in the same theme.
So how about you? Do you have certain songs that bring or encourage specific types of writing?
