What is Esther Listening To?
Post by Lashaunycee O'Cain
What's your favorite song at the moment, one that you have shamelessly on repeat?
My favorite song at the moment is "Call Them Brothers" by Regina Spektor. It is on the deluxe version of her “What We Saw From The Cheap Seats” album. Every song on that album is awesome, but right now thats my favorite.
What genre of music speaks to you most recently?
Recently, soul music has been my favorite. I am usually unaware of what music is within which genre, but I googled my favorite musicians lately, and it turns out they’re make mostly soul music (e.g. Allen Stone, Amy Winehouse, Aretha Franklin, Daniel Caesar, Corinne Bailey Rae, Norah Jones, etc.).
Do any of your favorite songs inspire your poetry?
I’m not sure my favorite songs inspire my poems, but I would say my life inspires both the poetry I write, and the music I’m listening to. I use the songs I hear to enhance the feelings that are inspiring my poetry. Sad music for nostalgic poetry, lovey music for love poetry, music with stories for more storytelling poetry.
