Songs to inspire your poetic flow

I know at least I’m in need of some major inspo right now.

So, here I’ve compiled a list of songs that can inspire whatever subcategory of poetic feel you’ve just been looking for! You can take these into your brain a few different ways… number 1, you can straight shoot up on them while writing. Or trying to write. Option 2, you could listen to them before taking pencil to computer screen. Or trying to take pencil to computer screen. Or, option 3… you can completely ignore the purpose they hold and listen to every list after the fact of finishing your creative flow!

Sometimes, though, songs do just jump-start our lyrical flows like nothing else can. I do know this, mainly just from experience, but I know my experience can’t be all that much different from y’all’s.

So, here’s a few short playlists to get you going in your creative endeavors today!

A few playlists for when you want to be inspired to write…

Enjoy your freshened flow today everyone!
