It’s no secret here on the blog that I dig music. It’s a big source of inspiration for me and not just with my writing. A friend of mine shared this video with me a long time ago and I often come back to it when I need a little reminder. Hope you like it.
It’s Christmas music time, right? You’re not sick of it yet, are ya? I’m starting to get into it now for sure. So, let’s test your music trivia…. 1. What sang the duet with Bing Crosby in the 1976 LIttle Drummer Boy song? 2. Who played drums for the song “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” by Band Aid, a collection of British music pop stars? 3. What popular 80s due sang Jingle Bell Rock? ~~~~~ Leave your guesses in the comments.
Music plays a big part of my writing. I love listening to certain songs over and over while writing. So, when it came to getting songs gathered up for Violet Midnight, I was excited. Some of these are pretty different but really paint the picture well. Here’s the playlist from YouTube: ~~~~~ I’m super excited to have a book signing tomorrow where the special music is being provided by Colton Avery. He’s a really talented singer. If you’re in this neck of the woods, be sure to stop by. Details HERE
I found a new favorite song. I’d heard P!nk had a new album coming out, so when I saw @RachelFirasek’s post on Twitter that she was listening to P!nk I went out investigating…. And found THIS: Now, personally, I find some of P!nk’s music…disturbing, in both a good and bad way. Most of my friends know that the F-word makes my ears bleed (LOL) and P!nk has been known to share the word in her songs…even titles of her songs. But if I look past that and really read some of her lyrics. That girl has some seriously powerful songs.[…]
This song just jumped out at me when I heard it. Sure fits Violet Midnight, with the loud, harsh music. Strong voice and intense words. This phrase resonated well with Emma’s character. I can’t just shut it up and fake that I’m alright. Now, the writers of the song might have a different meaning they wanted to portray, but those words, along with the music really fit Emma. Her wrist glows when Vamps are near. She didn’t ask for that. Can’t snuff it out until the Vamps are vanquished. And sometimes, she’s just NOT alright with her station in life. […]
Found another song for the Violet Midnight playlist!! Have you guys heard of Ellie Coulding? I’m sure I’m the only one who hasn’t at this point, considering this video has had over 19 million reviews. **LOL** She fits this story pretty well, even Emma to a point! After Emma reads this post, we’ll see if she agrees! **wink** So, what new music are you listening to these days? You never know, I might go download some new music from your suggestions. Heck, it could make a novel playlist. You just never know.
