What are you listening to? This can be your writing playlist, or just whatever you happen to be listening to at the moment.
Just a couple of rules...well, they're more guidelines, really:
1) Add a link to youtube, Spotify, SoundCloud (as long as it's publicly accessible), so we can easily listen. 2) In addition, rather than just leaving a link, try and tell us a little bit about it. Is this part of your writing playlist? If so, does it help you, or hinder you? Did you pick it as part of a theme, or is it just what your music player threw at you?
Well, currently, I'm listening to metal, which has its own thread. I do listen to non-metal things, though, so you can expect periodic links to random '80's songs, random classic rock, random bouts of fangirling over the awesomeness of Simon and Garfunkel (whom I still believe were the original hipsters, before it was cool to be a hipster), and just plain randomness.

I have a weird music question and this seemed like the most likely place for it.
A couple of nights ago when I was bringing the goats in for milking, I was carrying a stick and tapping it on things as I walked. Somehow I slipped into the rhythm of a song that after a while I realised was 'Tainted Love'. Today with the whole CPR song discussion I thought of it again and decided to listen to it. Only trouble is, an annoyingly long youtube session failed to turn up a version that sounds like the one in my head. Now I assume I would have heard it on the radio some time from the mid 90s to the early 00s, when my usual radio station played 70s/80s/90s and then 80s/90s/00s. So, which version is most likely to have been played a lot during the 90s/00s?
The one I'm thinking of has a sort of chorus thing in it like this:
One guy: Sometimes I need to... Several guys: RUN AWAY One guy: I've got to... Several guys: GET AWAY
...or whatever the exact lyrics are.
100,000,000 bonus points to anyone who magically can make sense of this and knows what I'm thinking.
Hubby has control of the YouTube at the moment... He's usually in charge of putting together playlists for me, since I get frustrated easily when I can't find what I want. His choices are usually right in sync with what I need to hear, whether it's for relaxation or working out or writing or what have you.
Here's a taste of what we've had on in the background this evening:

Love that line still...and Christopher Eccleston grins hugely and starts dancing...I forgot about that!
What's with these people who mix and match audio and video?
Take me down to the Gallifrey city where the Lords of Time fight the Daleks so pretty, oh won't you pleeeease take me through tiiime... He's from a tiiiime that it seem to me, reminds me of Time Lord memories, and every TARDIS was blue as a void-burnt sky...now and then when I see his face, it takes me through time to that special place, and if I stay and get bored, I'd break a fixed point in time, OOOOOHH, OHH OHH DOCTOR OF MIIINNE...WOAH OH OH OH DOCTOR OF MIIIINE... I looooove Doctor Who, so came and take a ride in the TARDIS baby, I love Doctor Who, so came and take a ride, travel time with me...
I have a problem.

A change of pace for tonight... Feeling a bit melancholy tonight. I love listening to this type of music when I'm missing my grampa (passed away many years ago, but I still miss him terribly), or feeling down just because. Also works very well as background music for writing very emotional scenes.

Celtic folk with occasional rock and funk influences, with lyrics that are about 50% Gaelic and 50% English. A blast from the past - after the Dervish song linked by JadedKitteh I unexpectedly wondered how long it was since I'd last listened to Capercaillie. I'm pretty sure it hasn't been any time this century.
Also, listening to this I'm starting to wonder if my opinion of good female vocals is 'sounds like Karen Matheson'.

mim: I wrote smut to amuse myself, but it forgot to become smut. They ended up fighting instead of in bed. Which was a problem when they were fanfic characters on a site too, actually...

Jᴀy A. Rᴀᴍᴀ 💀🐍: Well, you know what they say about how fight scenes and the other f word scenes are very similar-- they both involve lots of action. >
