Empty White Pages used to run a feature on her blog called Musical Impressions. She'd share a short story or writing sample from a friend and then match the music to the story.
Have you ever experienced the reverse - been inspired by a song to write a scene? This has only happened to me once with a lovely little instrumental by a Washington-based family ensemble called Magical Strings. It's called The Summer River and it's a lament. (I'd share the whole thing but I can't get Blogger to copy my music file off my player. *grrrr*It's too bad because the piece's harmonies really take off in the second stanza.)
Here's the clip: http://www.magicalstrings.com/samples/The%20Summer%20River.mp3
So...what did this bring to mind? Images, scenes, emotions?
What songs inspire you while you write? Does anything inspire you to write?
