The Black Swan is My New Writing Jam

I don’t know about you, but I love me some writing music. My newest example of jamtastic craziness: The Black Swan soundtrack.

Not exactly Queen Amidala, is she?

For those not in the know, The Black Swan is about a total nutjob ballerina who does a bunch of crazy stuff before stabbing herself in the stomach with a piece of glass during a fight with her alter-ego self. After that she sprouts imaginary feathers, dances in front of a bunch of people, and then dies. Horray for happy endings.

Even though the weirdness of this movie is totally off the charts, it did produce a killer soundtrack from Mr. Clint Mansel, the same guy who did the soundtrack for Requiem For A Dream. I couldn’t manage to get the whole thing streaming on here but I did find a version of my favorite track on a YouTube video. Check it out. Hopefully you’ll like it.

So what about you? Got any favorites that you pump up the volume on while you’re tapping out a new tale?
