♥ 2am

and I'm still awake writing a song screenplay.
I get the most writing done late into the night.  I think it's the utter silence.  The city of San Francisco is asleep & I am typing away listening to the most beautiful music on my iPod.  I download on average 30 songs per week so it's ever changing but here is what is on my "writing" mix today. 
Such sweet soft sounds.
The Three of Us - Ben Harper
Fljótavík - Sigur Rós
Every Day - Carly Comando
The Parting Glass - The Wailin' Jennys
Lulliby - Regina Spektor
Gravity - John Mayer
Narrow Escape - Ray LaMontagne
Flume - Bon Iver
I Know - Fiona Apple
Little Wing - Stevie Ray Vaughn
Can't Help Falling In Love - Ingrid Michaelson
Music is my drug.

What an amazing mix! I have some of those songs but the others I will have to get!
I'm thinking this will be my playlist this morning - it's a dreary and cold day here so this is the perfect music to just allow me to relax and enjoy the morning!

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

Totally downloading some of these!

ilene @ muchloveilly said...

Alex said...

Great playlist! And I love the song that the title references :)

Ashley said...

i can't count how many times i've crawled out of bed at late night hours to write. i think it's the most creative part of my day! hope you got some good work done!

i loooove sia and ray lamontagne. i think it would be so lovely to write in a big city at night. it sounds magical. and i was literally about to ask if you could share the songs you download, so i'm really glad you did! i think you should share lots more of them :)
