Apollo’s Men Playlist

December 8, 2014

Upon occasion, writing A Spartan Love was a challenge. There is nothing as distracting as my autistic daughter’s insistence upon listening to the same song ad nauseam. I can only listen to the “Itsy Bitsy Spider” or “The Old Lady who Swallowed a Fly” so many times. Although, I will admit that “Let It Goat” took the cake.

Or my son yelling “Whoo hoo!” when he was winning in some video game.

I did most of my writing after they went to bed, but sometimes I had to get things done during the day. So I turned to Niyaz to help me through.

Niyaz is an Iranian-American musical trio. The music is Middle Eastern and Mediterranean in origin. The kind of thing Andreas and Theron might have listened to. So it kind of sets the mood, allowing me to picture the sweeping landscapes of Greece. Additionally, since I don’t understand the words, I don’t get distracted by them as I write.

This is my playlist for the Apollo’s Men series.
