Just for fun, I started putting together a NaNoWriMo-themed playlist. These aren't things I listen to while I'm writing -- I've actually been finding silence better for that. But just songs that seem amusingly related somehow. The Mark Graham songs are the ones that got me started on this. So here's my list. Any other suggestions?

  • Mark Graham: Monkey with a Typewriter, Life is Hard When You're Dumb
  • The Beatles: Paperback Writer
  • Elvis Costello: Every Day I Write the Book
  • Sheryl Crow: The Book
  • Moxy Früvous: My Baby Loves a Bunch of Authors
  • Prokofiev: Suggestion Diabolique (whose idea was all this, anyway?)
  • Tom Waits: November, Looks Like I'm Up Shit Creek Again
  • They Might Be Giants: Impossible, No One Knows My Plan, I'm All You Think About (to be sung by the novel), Memo to Human Resources (for the line "I'm busy taking stock of all the things that I've forgot / And making mental notes of just exactly where I lost the plot")
