Is it weird to have this on your playlist?

Classic Masterpieces

Is it weird to have this on your playlist?  I’ve been listening to it quite frequently lately.. It really keeps you focused and does wonders to your imagination!  I swear I’ve heard these tracks at a graduation, wedding or classic films.  Actually, I know I have.  I can’t help but think of a silent Charlie Chaplin or Buster Keaton movie.. And I don’t understand why I haven’t experimented with them in a film yet.  I guess it’s sort of “untouchable”, you can’t just throw it in a video.. it really has to have the right pace and bring some emotion!  It’s crazy though how concentrated you become listening to this.  I need to throw it on my mp3 player, put my headphones on and have some dreams!  Even though my sleep has consisted of 4 hours a night.. my mind never feels like its ever not thinking about something creative.  I go to sleep and I see my projects, I love it!  It’s like a way to experiment the idea, run it through your mind and wake up and decide to either write it down or immediately run with that idea.  I think its almost best to have a lack of sleep because its like your mind wanders off so much deeper into your thoughts when you finally get the chance to sleep.  Its sort of like an addiction but the worse part is laying in bed waiting for the moment you black out.  Anyways.. the music!  I have 10 CD’s of this.  Check out the track list after the jump!
