I'll start. When I listen to Kickstart My Heart by Mötley Crüe, I can't help but imagine some grand action anime intro for my story. It's one of the songs that originally inspired the style I'm aiming for, and one that will probably always put me in the story telling mood!
I have The Ballad of Barry Allen by 'Jims big ego' on loop.
It hits the notes of beauty and loneliness involved with superspeed wonderfully.
Anyway, my top 5:
1. Elnaudi: Low Mist (Day 3)
2. Richter: On The Nature Of Daylight
3. Elnaudi: Experience
4. Ikue Asazaki (Betrayal Song from Samurai Champloo)
5. Jenny of Oldstone by Florence + The Machines I know I said I don't listen to lyrics while writing, but this song inspired an entire aspect of a character in my superhero fiction novel.
At least 20% of my current story has been written to Fuck Them All by The Dangerous Summer. Just something about it that gets me hyped up.
I also like any of those ambient tracks on YouTube. Sometimes they have music other times they just help me get into the scene
And then it popped in my head and I can't un-see the relationship... Carry On Wayward Son
Dang it... now every time I work on finessing the long-term outline, that is going to be in my head...

Yes! I absolutely love that song! It has also inspired me a LOT when I'm writing. It, just like Kickstart my heart, was one of the songs that originally inspired me to write my story.
