can we start a club for teenagers who were constantly complimented on their intelligence when they were younger and are now having trouble coping with the realization that they’re actually of average intellect at best
can this club have a support person that helps us to study because we didn’t need to before so we don’t know how to now
This is so my life that’s hurt
Thank god I’m not the only one
Ever since the (amazing) reception to my writing playlists I have been getting more and more questions about some of my favorite music for writing. So, I thought I would take a chance to spotlight some of my favorite albums!
[Portal 2: Songs to Test By] is a crazy deal. If you have played any of the Portal games you know what you’re getting into. The music from this game is a PERFECT fit for writing in a Dystopian or Cyberpunk setting. The majority of the tracks are gritty, almost unsettling. While listening to this album I tend to picture a future where things have only gotten worse.
Skyscrapers reaching into a black sky. Human augmentation that has only served to split humanity even further. A lonely hacker ruins the lives of thousands of people just to go on living a life they hate. A bomb blows up the slums, again. The news don’t report on it. They never do.
Of course, there are some duds, no question about it— with almost 4 hours of music there are bound to be some tracks that just don’t work for writing, but there are just SO many tracks it would be incredibly hard not to find something fitting to the scene you’re working on. Some of my favorite tracks include:
- The Part Where He Kills You. Intense, perfect for a chase scene or a fight where Lady Luck is not on your side.
- 9999999. This song has such a feeling of ‘wonder’ to it, almost perfect for revealing the horrible plot twist, or looking back into your past.
- Cara Mia Addio. Although this song has lyrics— I still think it’s amazing. The synthesized voice makes this feel eerie and yet sad at the same time. Perfect for writing about robots that are more human than the people who made them!
Best of all? You can download this album from Valve for the price of: No Monies. That’s right, head over to this page and download this album for FREE. There is, of course, a purchasable version of this album that comes with a few extra songs (including everyone’s favorite: Still Alive).
Keep writing, writerly friends! This album is not a lie~
