Soundtrack to the Stories

When I write a story, I often try to find a song that embodies the mood I'm trying to convey and when I find it, I play it over and over, just put it on loop.  These were the songs that accompanied the recent stories I've written - and yes, Black Mountain is an awesome band:

Little Dove - "Queens Will Play" by Black Mountain
Purity - "Thunderstruck" by AC/DC and "Run To The Hills" by Iron Maiden
Reunion - "Devil Got My Woman" by Skip James
Leave the Light On - "Tyrants" by Black Mountain
Shades of Blue - "Skeletons" by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and "Pumped Up Kicks" by Foster the People

Elliott Smith is also a good standby.  Although, sometimes it's a good plan to go for the complete opposite to keep one's sanity, in which case I end up writing to Judas Priest or something like MGMT
