Playlist with a Purpose: Copywriting

By Alyssa Kaplan • May 12, 2015

As Verbal+Visual’s resident copywriter, I’m often looking for music that allows me to listen whilst concentrating on the words at hand. In order to stay focused, I put aside my normal playlist of catchy pop songs in exchange for soothing instrumentals and ambient beats.


Here are a few of my favorites to get you started:


Song: Deus Ex Machina / Artist: If These Trees Could Talk / Album: Above the Earth, Below The Sky

Song: The Light / Artist: The Album Leaf / Album: Into the Blue Again

Song: Hand Covers Bruise / Artist: Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross / Album: The Social Network (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Song: Morning Passages / Artist: Philip Glass / Album: The Hours (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Song: Any Other Name / Artist: Thomas Newman / Album: American Beauty (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Song: A Revolutionary Road / Artist: Thomas Newman / Album: Revolutionary Road (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Song: All / Artist: Karen O and the Kids / Album: Where The Wild Things Are (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Song: Theme / Artist: Jon Brion / Album: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Song: All / Artist: Explosions in the Sky / Album: The Earth is Not a Cold Dead Place
