What music inspires all of the poets on these pages to write?...I mean do you play classical or Metal? Do you listen to whale sounds or birds singing? Let all the other poets here know what you listen to and maybe it will inspire others as it inspired you..also if you can provide places where it may be easily accessed so that others may buy/borrow it so much the better..i myself listen to a cornocopia of different music from rock music to classical..my favourites are the music of John Barry...and i also love the Tim Buckley album ''Happy Sad'' especially..''Buzzin Fly'' so upbeat and freeing...

Please share your sounds with all on this great poerty site...

May all have days of wonder and delight...

I mostly listen to classical, baroque-early romantic. Great stuff.. I also like the old chants from the late Middle Ages.. the first motets, esc.. beautiful.

Love's a lovely lad
His bringing up is beauty
Who loves him not is mad
For I must pay him duty

I cannot really say that music alone inspires me, it may the buzzing of a lawnmower or the chirping of birds . . .
even though technically they ARE music too, how you look at it.  But it all depends on my mood I guess.  I listen to everything and accept everything at least once.  I like to think that reading has been my biggest inpsiration in writing.

I go through phases with music.  These are where I am at right now.  
I listen to anything non-country.  
I love "underground" stuff....and could sit in a blues bar all night.  oh...and acoustic...hmmm...

i try not to listen to music while writing for fear i'll unwittingly lift someone's line. what did bono say, every poet is a thief?

when it comes to music getting me into a particularly open state of mind i'll listen to something like Massive Attack's brilliant Mezzanine, Bjork's Homogenic or Laika's Silver Apple's Of The Moon. The rhythms clear my head and the vocals make me drift which is good for writing.

for fun, currently listening to the yardbiyrd's bbc sessions and a hendrix instrumental bootleg.

I think music distracts me more than it inspires me.  Some of the more "musical" poetry I've read often touches me, like Milton's "L'Allegro" and "Il Penseroso," or the medieval ballads ("Patrick Spens" and "Barbara Allen" most of all).  I tend to imagine melodies in my head while listening to those.

Basically anything.

Rock and roll is my main genre of invention, but power pop, bossanova, jazz, big bands, lounge, country, even Yiddish, gets me going.

Jefferson Airplane and power pop really infused my latest set "Emmanuel Endorphin's Serotonin Sundae"

The last time I tried to write while listening TO music I ended up with this sociopathic write called Disorder . . . was System of a Down and Megadeath, I believe.

The music I listen to actually depends on the mood I am in at the time. I listen to EVERY form of music at one point or another, and take them as they arrive.

Laterly, it seems that I am listening to a greater amount of old-school metal (Exodus, Old Metallica, Megadeth, Testament Anthrax, Maiden, etc) and some of the newer almost metal (Blind Guardian, etc) as well as my standard progressive (Queensryche, Dream Theater, Fates Warning, Spocks Beard, Symphony X, etc). I think this is, in part due to the fact that we are in pre-production for our next CD, and as a metal band, it is what it is.

I'm drowning, choking

   Black hole we call living
