My theme this year is Soundtrack Songs. Each post will feature selections from the playlists I create to accompany my novels.
Song #1—Coming Undone by Korn
This is another Second Nature song, in case the first two days of this challenge didn't drive home well enough that this is about as far from a happy story as a book can get. I want to give a shout-out to both my sister-in-law, Alison, who suggested this song after I said, "Hey, I'm looking for a dark, angry song. Know anything?"
Keep holding on/ when my brain's ticking like a bomb/ Guess the black thoughts have come/ again to get me
I'm trying to hold it together/ Head is lighter than a feather/ Looks like I'm not getting better/ Not getting better
Song #2—Courage or the Fall by Civil Twilight
This is a Full Circle song, because so far that story isn't shaping up to be any happier than its predecessors. (I swear there are some happier songs coming up later on the month!)
Man wasn't made to live alone/ That's why I have my enemies/ Whenever I close my eyes/ They're all I can see
Still no accompanying scenes...I swear, those are coming, too!
Thanks for stopping by today. See you next time!
