Music to write by

Sheila has a funny post about finding herself propelled along a serious writing jag by the music of the Everly Brothers.

My experience with that is that it's sometimes the bizarre random stuff that really works. For the paper I cranked out the week before last, I was listening to a playlist that looped non-stop between Patsy Cline, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and John Coltraine. Of course, the downside of this is that now everytime I hear "Walking After Midnight" I'll be reminded of Indian assimilation, the Wounded Knee Massacre, and the Ghost Dance religion...
