Has this been discussed before? I was cruising through the boards, and I found the over-30's talking about this. What music do you listen to when writing Star Wars fan fiction? What helps you get in the mood for a lightsaber duel or a mushy Han-Leia scene? I will now answer my own question: For lightsaber duels, battles, and other violent/scary/action-packed scenes I use: angry techno, OutKast, The Roots (angry Roots), and, of course, Duel of the Fates. (YES! I admit it!) For moody/mushy/angsty/drama scenes where people cry and hug and brood I use: Rufus Wainwright, Radiohead, Nick Drake, Rachmaninoff. For just general mood in those Bail Organa political scenes that have intrigue but not much OOMPH I use: Adriano Celentano. I don't know why, but he helps. And now... What do YOU use? P.S. Lock me if this has already been discussed to death.
