On Spotify I have a playlist called “Best Studying Soundtrack Songs.” This playlist has helped me through many a projects, and it makes your writing feel epic.
Currently I have a little over 7 hours of play time on the playlist, so sometimes I forget about a song that is on the list. The other day I ran across a beautiful song I had forgotten about. The composer Hans Zimmer continually produces amazing songs, and he did it again for the movie 12 Years a Slave.
If you have seen 12 Years a Slave, this one drips of sorrow, regret, yet there are hints of hope. And the strings, I can’t get past the strings. If play it over your laptop speakers, you are doing it wrong.
