Music for Gloucestershire copywriters…here’s my current Top 5

It was re-reading Hi Fidelity  by Nick Hornby that got me thinking about my current Top 5 for copywriting music – and suggested an idea for a very brief post as we all sit and melt in the Scorchio! summer of 2013.

First off, I must say that if I do listen to anything it has to have no (or very unobtrusive) lyrics. Unless I’m on a very untaxing task, lyrics are too distracting. And as for listening to Radio 4 or anything else that’s remotely intellectually stimulating, that’s an absolute no-no.

So, to the current Al Hidden Top 5, and here’s what this Cheltenham copywriter is listening to…

  1. Rachmaninoff:  Complete Works for Piano and Orchestra
  2. Zero 7:  Simple Things
  3. Radio Swiss Classic (at this very moment, Edvard Grieg Piano Concerto / Symphonic Dances)
  4. Hotel Costes: any of the first five Costes albums (Etage 3, La Suite and so on…)
  5. The original soundtrack album: Ne Le Dis a Personne (Tell No One)

Music like this, a some website copy to write, a bit of client copy-editing and a good old-fashioned press release to craft. Now that’s what I call summer!

What do you listen to while you work and why? Feel free to post a comment and share…
