Theme Songs

One of my readers asked me about the music I listen to as I’m writing or even if I listen to music at all. The answer is yes and all kinds. I don’t usually have a specific playlist for each book. What I have are theme songs for them. One or two songs that I play that helps me capture the mood of the story or what I’m trying to say. Sometimes, the song might not seem to have anything to do with the story, but there is a line or two that fits. I thought I’d give you the songs that I’ve decided could be used as theme songs for each of my books (except for the anthology stories…lol)

Here we go:

No Going Home: “Lonely No More”- Rob Thomas
“Soft Place to Fall”- Chris LeDoux

“Better Man”- Elijah Black

Out of Bounds: “Let Me Fall”- Josh Groban

Where the Devil Dances: “You Had Me From Hello”- Kenny Chesney

High Line: “I Don’t Want to Fall in Love”- Chris Issak
“Not Ready to Make Nice”- Dixie Chicks

Ghost of a Chance: “Bring Me to Life”- Evanescene
“This Time”- Jonathan Rhys Meyers

Allergies: “First Time”- Lifehouse

Have a great Friday and weekend, everyone.

    Interesting play list you got there. I’ll have to check out some of the artists I’m not familiar with. I love listening to music when I write. I don’t have theme songs for my stories though. What a cool idea.

    Have a great weekend.

    Great song. 🙂

    How about…I get knocked down, but I get up again. Hmmm…I can’t think of the song name but it is by Chumbawamba.

    I found the name: Tubthumping

    I get knocked down
    But I get up again
    You’re never going to keep me down

    He drinks a whisky drink
    He drinks a vodka drink
    He drinks a lager drink
    He drinks a cider drink

    He sings the songs that remind him
    Of the good times
    He sings the songs that remind him
    Of the better times

    You’re right, Jambrea. I did forget Tabloid Star.

    Hmm…I guess Rockstar-Nickleback would be one of the theme songs for that story. I’ll have to think about the second song.

  8. Jambrea says:

    Okay…you forgot Tabloid Star. 😀

    I love this list and I can see those songs fiting each of your stories! Very cool.
