I usually don’t listen to music with lyrics when I’m trying to write, though I listen to instrumentals. I do listen to songs when I’m thinking about plots and ideas though and there are a few songs that remind me of events in stories, and that I think would make great soundtracks to movie versions of my books. Here is what might be included in a Blood Trade Movie.
You’ve Been Flirting Again – Bjork
9 Crimes – Damien Rice
All I Want from You is Love – Let’s Go Sailing
Dirty Laundrey – Bitter:Sweet
I Want to be Your Dog – Joan Jett
Bad Girls – M.I.A.
Paper Planes – M.I.A.
Werewolves of London – Warren Zevon
Paradise – Coldplay
Mad World – Michael Andrews
Little Sister – Queens of the Stone Age
And I would have to add Trouble by Cat Stephens. I was just listening to it on the way home today.
