Story playlist/soundtrack

Filed under: Uncategorized — coffeegirl88 @ 6:40 pm

I promised I’d do this on another blog (waves in Kim’s direction) after reading another blog about soundtracks (waves at Pam).

One quick clarification.  I call the music I write to playlists because that’s what iTunes calls them.  I know others call them soundtracks but hey, this is my blog and I call them playlists.

So, the story I’ve been working on is called “Redemption.”  Started it about 5 years ago.  The playlist has changed a bit as the hero has changed but here’s the current working playlist.  Well, with one exception.  The entire album “Working Class Dog” by Rick Springfield is also a story album.   The list reads as follows:

Breathe (2 am) – Anna Nalick

Gold – Spandau Ballet

The Stairs – INXS

If I Should Fall Behind – Dion

If I Should Fall Behind – Bruce Springsteen

Secret Garden – Bruce Springsteen

She’s Always A Woman To Me – Billy Joel (this one is on the list twice, don’t know why but not changing it)

All About Soul – Billy Joel

Baba O’Riley – The Who

Into the Mystic – Van Morrison

Don’t Walk Away – Rick Springfield

Wonderland – Paul Young

I’d Die for You – Bon Jovi

Who Knew – Pink

A Thousand Miles – Vanessa Carlton

No One After You – Anjani Thomas (I’ll admit to skipping this one a lot, I think it’s out of place but won’t remove it)

Maggie May – Rod Stewart

Easier to Run – Linkin Park

Afterglow – INXS

She’s Not There – The Zombies

Let Her Cry – Hootie & The Blowfish

All I Wanted – Kansas

Manhattan Skyline – Julia Fordham

That’s it.  My working playlist, all 24 songs.  I am thrilled I’m working on this story and not, say my Vegas story or my Nano book.  The Vegas story has a 61 song playlist that clocks in at 4.2 hours.  On The Way Down (the nano book) has 68 songs and is 4.6 hours long.

Now it’s time to say to Kim *tag you’re it*

A quick post

Okay, I don’t have much to say today other than I can’t believe I let all of August go by without a single blog post.  Bad blogger no biscuit.

I had my summer swallowed up with everything else but writing, but that’s starting to shift.  I’ve had my story come back to me over the past couple days and I am about to settle in with a fresh Word document and start writing.  Or a fresh tablet and a new pen and do it old school.  Either way, writing will happen in this space today.

So, how was summer for everyone else?
