Music Inspiration: Work From Home

I love deep house. I love how it takes me places without being too invasive and how it makes me flow and feel grounded at the same time.

So here’s another playlist that I’ve created. It’s lighthearted and it’s fun. You can work or study to it. You can also dance or get ready for yet another Saturday night in. The world is your oyster!

Work from home playlist by Creative Overthinker. Tracklist is in the video description on Youtube.

Personally, I love writing first drafts to this kind of music. For me, it’s an equivalent of drinking a hot strong cup of coffee. Deep house tracks of this playlist keep me going and don’t allow me to break up a writing session because of its “thick” composition.

Yeah, music has “thickness” and “thinness” to it in the way I perceive. Please don’t quote this sentiment to anyone who earned a music-related diploma, I won’t handle the ridicule))

Back in my college years, I used to listen to Lady Gaga’s “Marry The Night” song on repeat for the same exact reason. The outro of that song is pure perfection. It forces you to pump out anything that needs to be pumped out (oh gosh, what do I mean by that). It takes you out of a hole of overthinking (and any thinking, really) and pushes you to just get it out and done.

I’ve used this song countless times when I needed to just get the first draft finished, no matter the grammar, punctuation or coherence. That’s how my core ideas would surface, and this is how I don’t get stopped by minor obstacles such as “this word doesn’t exist” and “I don’t think anyone will get this reference”. If you’re a write a lot, you know exactly what I mean.

Now, my mix is far less intense that the part of the “Marry The Night” video that I’ve tagged for you, but it’s also longer, so you’re geared for a nice 45-minute session.

Get done whatever you need to get done. Work from home better and faster than you do at the office. Listen to kick-ass music and enjoy your day!

Music Inspiration: “Another Late Night” Instrumental Playlist

Sometimes I still can’t wrap my mind around how magical music is.

Music makes us feel a full specter of emotions. It changes mood in an instant, and you can use that power to your advantage.

When I was in college, I used to seek out random playlists on Youtube to learn about new bands and new genres. I had the greatest time listening to random bands, signers, and musicians. I don’t think anything contributed to me becoming the person I am today as much as that experience.

I also loved listening to ambient music playlists for studying and work. It helps me concentrate on my work better and creates a pleasant cocoon of background sound. Instrumental music allows my thoughts flow without obstruction while also creating a rhythm that keeps me on track without getting destructed.

Now I make this kind of playlists myself. Here is the latest one that I’ve created:

I’m a huge fan of staying up late. I do it to have “me” time when my husband is asleep and my cats are busy playing with each other (right around 3am). I like how quiet and dark it gets when computer screen with the night mode on is the only source of light.

I’m currently posting one video per week on Sundays. Follow me on Youtube to listen to the playlists!
