First, I’d like to thank you for having me on your blog. What a fun topic to discuss today.
Before I go too far, I should mention I tend to go on and on. Hey, I’m a writer. It’s a curse. I’ll try to behave, but I’m just sayin’ in advance, I’m sorry. One of my girls has accused me, more than once, of having a severe case of word vomit…she isn’t wrong.
So, I created two playlists for Love Chosen, actually. One was for when I was writing the novel, and the other one was for when I typed and edited. Here’s why: when I’m creating the story, I’m much less productive if I’m singing, chair-dancing, and jamming out to the music—which I tend to do. So, when I’m in the “writing” phase, I listen to a certain style of music…a type that isn’t distracting. When I’m in the less creative phase, I allow myself more freedom with my choices.
Here’s a list of the artists and songs I listened to while writing Love Chosen:
On Your Shore 3:57
Evening Falls 3:45
Na Laetha Geal M’oige 3:56
The Celts 2:57
I Want Tomorrow 4:02
Fairy Tale 3:04
Shepherd Moons 3:42
Book of Days 2:32
Clannad (The Best of)
Theme from Harry’s Game 2:29
Buachaill On Eirne 3:03
Robin (The Hooded Man) 2:47
Caislean Oir 2:10
Trans-Siberian Orchestra-Beethoven’s Last Night
In its entirety…
So, that’s the playlist for when I wrote “Love Chosen.” It’s inspiring music, sensational music; yet it’s not exactly on the “Top 10 Pop Sing-Along.” As I said, it isn’t distracting.
Now, here’s a list of the artists and songs I listened to while editing Love Chosen (this is the music I can sing along to, chair-dance with, annoy fellow writers when we’re camped out on a writers’ retreat with…ya know, the fun stuff:
Lily Allen (Now known as Lily Rose Cooper). I saw her on SNL in 2007 and fell in love with her music-Alright, Still
Nan, You’re a Window Shopper 2:58
Everything’s Just Wonderful 3:28
Friday Night 3:06
Lily Allen-It’s Not Me, It’s You
Everyone’s At It 4:38
I Could Say 4:04
Never Gonna Happen 3:28
F**k You 3:43
He Wasn’t There 2:51
Katy Perry-One of the Boys
I Kissed a Girl 2:59
Hot and Cold 3:40
Waking Up in Vegas 3:19
Kate Nash-Made of Brick
We Get On 4:34
Skeleton Song 5:07
Merry Happy 5:27
Nicest Thing 4:04
The Ting-Tings-We Started Nothing
That’s Not My Name 5:47
The Proclaimers-Sunshine on Leith
I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles) 3:39
Then I Met You 3:50
Sunshine on Leith 5:16
I’m On My Way 3:45
It’s Saturday Night 3:24
Oh Jean 5:56
And those are my Playlists for Love Chosen. I listened to other music, don’t get me wrong. Pandora is an amazing thing and I don’t remember if I had it then or not (I definitely have an account now), but I love music, many different genres. These two playlists are the songs I remember listening to the most, though, through this story.
If you find a new favorite song because of me, well, that will be wonderful. Just fyi, though…a few of them are rated explicit, so be careful what you hear. Myself, I think I’ll go listen to some old favorites.
Thanks for stopping by Marne Ann!
