Sometime You Need Vocals Playlist by DMB
Here's my playlist for my Pirate Publishing Blog.
With this writing soundtrack, I went for high drama. I wanted songs all about tension and emotion, and for my two cents, tension and emotion are driven home by lyrics and vocals. While vocals can sometimes be distracting, I find that after I've listened through the soundtrack once or twice, the words start to wash over me without losing the power of the human voices behind them.
For this soundtrack, I chose lyrics that revolve around dire straits and uphill battles. This stuff is all about fighting the good fight until the bitter end. Hey, it's morbid, but that's what I find motivating when I face the beast and stare it down.
