Volume, Turn It Up

Do you hear music in your head when you read a book, even if there isn't any music playing?  I do.  All the time.  It's weird, I know.  Not sure why.

I also hear music when I write too, regardless of whether it's playing in my office (which it usually is).

I was writing a couple of chapters yesterday for my book PLAYED.  A song called Beautiful Things by Gungor kept playing in my head.  They're a new group that I only discovered this week.  I think this song is so incredibly gorgeous.  I love the lyrics and the slow but powerful build-up.  This song speaks to my heart.

If music isn't playing when I write, I usually hear it as well.

It can be a problem for me. Sometimes the music in my head is so lovely, I stop what I'm doing to listen.

Yeah some stories just make me think of certain songs. :-D

I always hear music in my head. My own stereo system, lol! I do, occasionally, have music playing when I write, but not when I'm editing.

Lovely song. :-)

Hello! I'm new to your blog (hopping and bopping in on my way down the list) but took time to listen to the song. The cover was enough to make me want to hear it. Never heard of the group... (I mostly listen to country music) I really loved the song, though! Thank you for posting it. Best regards to you. Nice to meetcha' ! Ruby aka Grammy

Glad you shared that song, I'd never heard of it before.

I can't say I have music playing, aloud or in my head, while I write. I'll often listen to get into the mood but prefer quiet when writing.

I prefer quiet when I'm trying to write or brainstorm, so no music in the background, not even in my head. (Unless you count tinnitis?)
Beautiful music clip here, though. Thanks for sharing. Hey, we've almost made it through the alphabet!

I always have a song in my head and not always a favorite either. The other day it was a Madonna song and I am NOT a fan of Madonna. It was driving me batty! I finally put on my ipod in order to rid myself of it. lol

I don't know that I always hear music...but I'm always listening to it! And while I'm writing, sometimes I'll suddenly feel the need to listen to a particular song, so will skip whatever I'm listening to to get to the necessary track. :)
