Hello once again, Readers!!!
Let’s start this baby off with a quote today.
“Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent” ― Victor Hugo
How do you like that….huh…huh? Powerful stuff right?
I know, which is why I am writing about music today or more specifically, about the playlist for my novel, Born in Flames.
I love music. It is the single most powerful art form that moves me. The next would be dance, and then paintings… I digress.
Every note, every key, it all pulls me to a place that is indescribably beautiful. A place where words are never enough. Only the sound of the music and the way it makes you feel on the inside. Exactly like what a good book does. And when I think of my story and try to sum it up, the emotional part of it I mean, there are a few songs that hit home. So this would have to be the playlist for Born in Flames.
- Active Child – Hanging On.
- Florence + The Machine – Drumming Song.
- Christina Perri – Arms.
- The Knife – Heartbeats.
- 30 Seconds to Mars – Alibi.
- The Xx – Shelter.
- Paramore – Adore.
- M83 – Another Wave From You.
- Mutemath – You Are Mine.
- Blondfire – Walking With Giants.
- Ellie Goulding – I Know You Care.
- Gary Jules – Mad World.
Some you may now and some you may not. I love them all. Each song fits a specific scene and the lyrics all relate somehow to the characters and what they are going through. The fun part would be listening to it as you’re reading Born in Flames, and trying to figure out what song pertains to what.
Now to leave you with a question: If you’ve read Born in Flames, do you have any song suggestions to add to the playlist?
I don’t know how many of you are Game of Thrones and Dexter fans, but I sure am. Like mad crazy. When I saw this, I died laughing. Okay, well maybe I didn’t die, but you can imagine my delight!
