This week's IFB project is to gather together some tracks which you listen to while blogging for inspiration, relaxation and 'getting in the zone'. Mostly I listen to a playlist I made on We7 called In My Beach House (a selection of Jack Johnson and Jack's Mannequin for the beach house I own in my mind) Here is a small selection of some other songs I like to listen to...
1. Devil Wears Prada Suite - the main music which you may have heard in the background of the film. I love the business of it at the beginning, which I think encapsulates how it must feel running down the corridor of an international fashion magazine HQ. It helps me to get productive and remind me of what the blog is all about.
2. Plain White T's, Sunlight - I find the vocal harmonies on this track so soothing, plus it has a positive vibe which can keep me going when I need to do a post and it's a bad day.
3. Vampire Weekend, Oxford Comma - while I do my best to uphold a high standard of good grammar and spelling on the blog, typos still happen.This song reminds me that the little stuff isn't always important as long as my passion shines through. Plus, it has a fantastic video directed by Richard Ayoade, which I love watching.
4. Lauren Pritchard, Stuck - I saved the best until last. This is the first track on Lauren's album Wasted in Jackson. Her voice is so perfect and soulful that it always guarantees to uplift. And how does it relate to blogging? Well, sometimes I regret choices I made for this blog at the beginning of its life, but overall I love it as it is, and wouldn't have it any other way. So if I'm stuck, then at least I'm stuck with Moriarty.
