My theme this month is Soundtrack Songs. Throughout April, I will be sharing with you selections from the playlists I create to accompany my novels, the lyrics that landed the song on the list.
Today, I have three songs to share with you. I tried to keep it to two songs, but I didn't want to exclude any of today's selections, so there will be three, one from three of the four volumes of my fantasy series...
Song #1—My Skin by Natalie Merchant
This is an Effigy song. If the main character of that novel—Haleine Coileáin—had a theme song, this would be it.
Take a look at my body/ look at my hands/ there's so much here that/ I don't understand/ Your face-saving promises/ whispered like prayers/ I don't need them
Song #2—My Vampire Heart by Tom McRae
Remember yesterday when I was all, "This song relates to a pair of characters I can't tell you about because spoilers"... Well, this is another of their songs.
Darling, I'm lost/ adrift in the dark/ clutching your words/ to my vampire heart once more/ So let in the light/ turn me to dust/ If it don't end in bloodshed, dear/ it's probably not love
Song #3—My Body Is A Cage by Peter Gabriel
This is the first song to make it onto the playlist for Threnody—Book #4 in my fantasy series. There's no specific scene for it yet, but it's representative of a certain character's mindset when the story begins.
My body is a cage/ that keeps me from dancing/ with the one I love/ but my mind holds the key
Back to two songs tomorrow, I promise! Thanks for stopping by!!
