Blog Hop #3

It's Friday again, which means it's time for the blog hop! I just want to say thanks to Crazy-for-Books for this awesome way to discover new blogs!

Book Blogger Hop
This Week's question is..  
Do you listen to music when you read? If so, what are your favorite reading tunes?

Yes I do listen to music when I am reading, especially when I am in a noisy environment. I use music as background noise so I can drown out everything else. This only works if it is music I am really familiar with, because if it's new to me then I focus on it. I usually listen to really slow music (like Skinny Love by Bon Iver, Secret Garden by Bruce Springsteen, anything by Cat Power, some Coldplay, Damien Rice, etc.) or movie scores. I am a big fan of movie scores. I listen to the 500 Days of Summer Score by Mychael Danna and Rob Simons a lot, the TiMer score by Andrew Kaiser, The Friday Night Lights score by Explosions in the Sky and the Keith score by Tree Adams. I have a huge playlist on my ipod with scores, and there is also a lot of stuff by James Newton Howard (Pleasantville, Peter Pan & My Girl) and Danny Elfman (Edward Scissorhands & Big Fish).

Hi, just blog hopping through. Happy Friday!
I listen to music mostly when I write, not when I’m reading. I listen to Celtic and Pirates of the Caribbean.
Check out ketch1714.wordpress.com for Follow Friday and a featured movie clip.
Best,
Kelsey

Hopping by to say hello! :) I don't usually listen to music while I read, but I love movie scores. Hans Zimmer's Gladiator score is one of my favorites.
