In fact, you might even say it's my new favorite thing.
What is it, you ask?
Nah. I'll wait. Give suspense.
OKAY. I'm too lazy to add anymore suspense.
SO. Here's the thing.
As a writer, I absolutely ADORE background music. It's usually movie soundtracks, or video game soundtracks that are actually quite amazing. But just the other day I discovered something greater.
(Or not, depending on what you consider great.)
(This might be the most boring thing ever.)
(Why am I still talking in parenthesis?)
What I did, was I played the sound of rain AT THE SAME TIME as some of my quieter background music. The result? A heartbreaking, emotional level added on top of the song.
Let's try it.
Go ahead and press play on that, and then choose one of the songs below for an incredible, gorgeous combination. (You might need to lower the volume a little on the rain.)
I could listen to this for hours. Perfect for writing emotional scenes.
