Make a playlist of the music that inspires you in general; just the stuff that makes you want to write a marathon! This is your Inspiration playlist that will help you write anything.
Make a playlist with music that inspires you about your story. This should only be songs that make you think about your story every time you hear them. It could be the instrumental or the lyrics, it doesn't have to be both.
Make a playlist of mood music for your story. This playlist should have music that your characters would listen to or you could playing the background as the story unfolds. Even if it is just the music that plays over the radio in the bar or salon, add it because it will get your writers block to leave you alone.
Make a playlist of film scores. This is up to you, but I suggest making a playlist of your favorite movies film scores or even just the films that remind you of your story.
Pro Tip: Instead of making a playlist, you could make a Pandora station. I have both because sometimes I want to listen to specific songs and other times I don't want to bother with picking the song.
