Music I Love/Book Playlist


Welcome to my blog. This week on the Authors Blog Challenge is Music I Love/Book Playlist. Now, I’m not much of a music fan. You never want me on your team for trivia games unless there’s movie questions. I have no idea who tops the charts or even who the current pop princes and princess are. Though if I do happen to hear a song I like on the radio or wherever I’ll Shazam it and add it to my library or on odd occasion, I crawl out from under my rock and check out iTunes top 100.


My taste in music is eclectic. I have classics such as Queen and ACDC, pop: Aqua (the first album I ever owned), Avril Lavigne (my Christmas present when I was sixteen) and soundtracks: Shrek, Bring It On, Burlesque and an assortment of Disney songs. (Yes, Let It Go is there, I love that song!).


Music I Like/Book PlaylistsMy favourite playlist consists currently of:


  • Nashville Soundtrack (Clare Bowen does a great moving song. My fav is Falling)
  • Pitch Perfect  Soundtrack (love mashups)
  • Sugar (Maroon Five)
  • Rise (Katy Perry)
  • Hot Blooded (Foreigner)
  • Don’t You Forget About Me (Simple Minds)
  • The Nights (Avcii)
  • Run Baby Run (Deadstar)
  • Bring Me to Life (Evanescene)
  • Set My World On Fire (The Feeling)
  • Counting Stars (OneRepublic)
  • Behind These Hazel Eyes (Kelly Clarkson)
  • Crazy Chick (Charlotte Church)
  • Within Temptation (Ice Queen)
  • Hello (Adele)

That’s just to name a few. Like I said eclectic.

I’d love to be able to create a book playlist but I’m easily distracted so mostly when I write, I either have to have silence, old TV shows running in the background or my inspiration playlist of Celtic/New Age sounds from Enya or the Braveheart soundtrack. Pretty much anything I can’t sing (screech) along to. Sometimes I even have website Rainy Mood playing. I love the sound of rain and find it soothing and motivating (despite the need to take many bathroom breaks).
