Music Muse Monday – The Celtic Circle

So Monday has rolled around again and my muse was awfully quiet on the weekend. So even though I am at work I am trying to get her to wake back up. Sending in the cavalry so to speak. To achieve this I have opened one of my writing playlists to listen to as I do the payroll and enter tally sheets. (Honestly you would be as surprised as I am as to how many codes there can possibly be for shearing sheep….)

Now in this playlist are many different kinds of music but today I thought I would focus on The Celtic Circle CD set, and The Celtic Circle 2 CD set. I would not be able to tell you how many times I have listened to the discs, (both are 2 CD sets) and have a range of music on them. I’ve selected two songs that are very much capturing my imagination today. If you like Celtic Music I would urge you to check the CDs out, they have a diverse range of what they call Celtic Music and I think there is something on there for everyone.

First up – “Nocturne” by Secret Garden

And second – “Who wants to live forever” by Dune

Now, hands up who has a sudden urge to watch “Highlander”?


Music Muse Monday – Smashing Pumpkins “1979”

Welcome to another new thing for the blog. As I’ve already blogged about, music is a huge part of my writing and inspiration. So keeping that in mind I thought I could make Monday about sharing the music I’ve been listening to for inspiration, or music that has inspired.

Today’s song, (and the whole album “Melancholy and the infinite sadness”), has been music that has inspired me for a long time. When I knocked out Eiridis in six weeks I listened to the album and song again and again. The muse has been a bit more on the quiet side the last few days, so with that in mind I decided this morning that it was time to turn back to some tried and true music to get me inspired and get the words flowing. (Even if it is Monday and I do have to leave for work in fifteen minutes).

There might be another reason that I adore this song. If you listen to the lyrics you might just be able to work out why. *grins*

So what songs inspire you? What are you listening to at the moment?
