Writing In Response 4: Songs

Writing In Response 4: Songs

Inspiration comes from many places, your life mainly but a good writer is open to ideas from many places. Today’s inspiration is from songs, some you will know, some not. Listen to them again. Listen to the mood, the feeling, the music. See the story in your head – which isn’t necessarily the story in the song.

On the Beach, Chris Rea


Kashmir, Led Zeppelin


High Hopes, Pink Floyd (most of their stuff is a novel in waiting)

Reckless, Australian Crawl (+ the whole of The Boys Light Up – full of stories)


Tea in the Sahara, The Police


Teo Torriatte (Let us Cling Together), Queen


Knights in White Satin, Moody Blues


Wild is the Wind, David Bowie


Sister of Mercy, The Thompson Twins


Rikki, Don’t Lose That Number, Steely Dan


Mori – Origin Spirits of the Past theme song

(Thanks YouTube)
