Against basically everyone's better judgment, including my own, I am a writer at an advertising agency. That means my very silly job everyday is to trick housewives and insecure teenagers into indulging in things they don't need. The types of products and services we sell can vary wildly (a normal day can include selling luxury cars, healthy kid snacks and even mountain bikes), so a diverse playlist is a must.
Lots of people can't write to music, but I am just not one of them. I need it. Typically, it's stuff I have enjoyed many times previously, so I can still focus. But it's always something interesting, and it's kind of fun to tap your toes to stuff in a weird bit of extroverted multi-tasking. There are, of course, some instrumental choices on this playlist, but that would be too easy. There are also some songs I find to have exceptional lyricism within them, and songs that do fantastic jobs telling stories. Inspiration comes in many forms, obviously, and if you're looking for a little motivation to put e-pen to e-paper, maybe this playlist will help.
