{musicality: stay}



Stay by Rihanna. If you been following along here for any length of time, you know that I once had a series titled, Musicality Mondays. When I settled into an abridged posting schedule, I decided to let this series float off into the distance. However, every once in a while a song comes along that stops me in my tracks and I'm compelled to listen to it until my ears bleed, and then share it with you. I've been listening to Stay on repeat for the last couple of weeks. Before this song, it was Intro by The XX. I'm not sure what these two songs have in common except that they both make me reflective and get me into a nice flow when I'm creating.  (I also listen to a lot of classical music.) While I realize, some (most :) of you won't share my taste in music, I am curious to know if there are particular songs you listen to for inspiration.  The only time I can't listen to music is when I'm commenting on your blogs. I need silence so I can concentrate on your words and the comment I want to write. How about you? Do you listen to music when you write and/or create? I would love to know which songs or type of music helps you create and propels you into a creative flow.

Happy Monday, everyone! Let's make it a great week.
 

ps~Hey, everyone, we decided to get out of town for a few days. Regularly scheduled programming won't be interrupted, but if i'm a bit quiet on the airwaves, you'll understand why. xo


7 Send Me Your Thoughts:

  1. This year in school, Callum alternates a term of PE with a term of music appreciation. Next year is PE/Drama! I love the music appreciation terms. He's in one right now. He's doing all the classic composers. It's perfect for my boy because he loves history and learning quirky things. We watched Amadeus when I got home. Cal is watching it at school (it's taking for-ever in 40 minute increments!), and he and Neel watched it once already. After that it was Mozart's Requiem all evening. Music is everything, isn't it?

  3. Oh, I hope you're having fun! It's so refreshing to unplug (mostly) for a few days. I listen to music almost all the time too, except when I'm writing. The Bon Iver and Lumineers on Pandora are my go to stations, but I can't get enough of Tristan Prettyman's new album either. Sometimes I really do wish my life had a soundtrack! xo

  4. I listen to classical 95% of the time. The radio on my windowsill is perpetually tuned to the classical station here, and it's what my dad always had playing at his place. The apartment we stayed at in Paris had a huge collection of it, as well! That's how I knew I was in heaven ;) My favorites are always the Shostakovich ballet suites. Right now though I'm listening to a lot of Keane again. Surprise!
    Have fun on your getaway!! Don't apologize about the absence, keedoke? You just have fun. xoxo

  5. If not in front of the tv, then yes, must have music. But I am more of an uptempo gal. I also have Rihanna issues- but I do really like the simplicity of this video. Happy travels Theresa!

  6. I have a wide variety of music I listen to..but like you, I've been really drawn to "Stay." We were driving in the car when the hubbs asked me why I like to listen to such a depressing song...and I told him...I see the beauty in a lot of things that people don't. It was that song & the Bruno Mars song "When I Was Your Man," that's been on repeat for me....sad songs, songs that feature a powerful Female Lead (Jessie J), and English acoustic hotties ;) (Ed Sheeran) get me in my creative mood =) I just discovered Cilla Black, so she's keeping my creative juices flowing at the moment....have a great trip lady!
