Your Favorite Copywriting Music?

Postby Bensettle » Sun Aug 31, 2008 4:59 pm

What music (if any) do you listen to when writing your ads?

I usually listen to smooth jazz on iTunes (sky.fm).

Sometimes classical (which, from what I hear, is extremely good "brain" music).

And, once in a while, a movie soundtrack (the movie's "score").

What about you?

What's your favorite kind of music to write copy to?

Ben

Fun question.

Most of the time we listen to The Spirit of KJazz, a classic jazz radio station.

When I need to really focus on coding or writing, I flip off the jazz and go to nature sound tracks, babbling brooks and such.

We use iTunes on an old Mac, connected to a wireless speaker system for the house.

Wow! I'm going to have to write some copy sometime while listening to the Doors. I wonder if I have the courage to see how that would turn out!

Celtic music kicks arse, I absolutely love listening to it, too. But never tried writing copy to it (will have to give it a shot!)

Shhhh, celtic music is a top secret copywriting technique. I'm doing a hyped up product launch for it soon :-)

I have this "Heart of Ireland" cd that has all the old irish folk songs on it. Picked it up at target years ago.

I like classical music and anything by Outkast. After listening to the classical music, I usually need something to wake myself back up.

Oh, and I also like country legends songs when I'm writing copy or working on my internet business.

Gonna have to toss in Vivaldi, too.

He's gotta be one of my favorite classical musicians -- and great for writing (or reading) to.

I also bring up iTunes and either listen to smooth jazz, crooners or some good, old 1970s disco. ;)

Um. Wow. Never tried listening to heavy metal while copywriting before ^_^

I like soundtracks (scores) great for listening to while writing/reading.

I also find myself listening to Josh Groban.
