Writespiration: “Chord Left” by Agnes Obel

Agnes Obel’s small piano piece, “Chord Left,” has been on my go-to writing playlist since Pandora radio delivered it to my ears years ago. It somehow is both off-putting and calming, classical and modern. And although I’ve heard it thousands of times while typing away, I recently reheard it as background music in HBO’s adaptation of Sharp Objects.

I’ve written about “Dark Horse” by the Shanghai Restoration Project, which I’ve also always connected with Sharp Objects because of how I would listen to it while reading the book. Seems like Gillian Flynn’s exceptional novel is musically stalking me.
