Welcome back OLW blog hoppers!
During July we were asked to create a soundtrack for our word. This took a long time for me to get into. Usually the music I listen to is depressing, emotional, melancholic (when I even get a chance to listen to my own music… living with a musician and teenager!) How was I going to find inspirational music either about creating or that can be played while I’m playing?
I found a couple of tracks in my music library that I love love love and and had to have even though they can still be a little sad. Then I began searching iTunes using keywords like create, color, art. I found a couple of tracks I knew and a few I didn’t but they were perfect. My biggest find was a wonderful artist Agnes Obel. I ended up buying her album “Philharmonics” and I highly recommend it.
- Sensations in the Dark | Gruff Rhys ~ “And with a bright air of madness and flair you introduced me to new ideas”
- Broken Doll | Paloma Faith ~ “Wipe away my fears”
- Watercolor | Pendulum ~ “Feed the fire”
- Brother Sparrow | Agnes Obel ~ “From my window view I know a color blue”
- Do you want the Truth or Something Beautiful | Paloma Faith ~ “Just close your eyes and make believe”
- Bring me to Life | Evanescence ~ “Bring me to life”
- The Way We Were | Barbra Streisand ~ “Misty water colored memories of the way we were”
- Create | Alana Davis ~ “Sit down and create”
- Riverside | Agnes Obel ~ “Swim with the current and float away”
