So I was thinking the other day about the music that has really influenced my writing. While I was living in the U.K. I wrote both Fire Burn and To Kill A Warlock. During that time, I listened to a few CDs that one of my husband's friends had graciously given us. Some of those songs really characterized my books. Now when I listen to the CDs, it reminds me not only of living abroad but it also puts me into the frame of mind I was in when I wrote both books.
So, if you're interested in what I perceive the soundtracks to my books to be, ponder no more!
Here are the songs that really shaped my writing and my books. Bands, if you want to send some royalties my way, I wouldn't argue. LOL
Westfall, Okkervil River
The Strokes, Electricityscape
Stone Roses, I wanna be adored
Si Hi to Your Mom, Blah Blah Blah (really like this one)
Cold War Kids, Hang Me Up To Dry
Sonic Youth, Teenage Riot (love love love)
Of Montreal, Oslo in the Summertime
Digitalism, Pogo (This one had the biggest effect on my writing. Absolutely adore this song)
TV on the Radio, Blues from Down Here
Ghetto Ways, Scissors for Lefty
Regina Spektor, Us
