Music Monday

This week’s song doesn’t have a story attached. I just heard it somewhere and I liked it.

Mumford & Sons – “Babel”

Music Monday

Funny story about this song. For some reason, when I heard this song, it stuck with me as one to listen to while writing the scenes of Anderson Stables that take place at horse shows. It was, and still is, a “competition song” in my mind. Then, after listening to it about a hundred times, I actually paid attention to the lyrics and came to what should not have been such a sudden realization: “This song is about sex.”

It’s still wired into my brain as a competition scene song and I doubt that will change.

Maroon 5 – “Animals”

Music Monday

This week is another song that mysteriously stuck with me, this time despite not being one of the genres I typically listen to.

Nico & Vinz – “Am I Wrong”

Music Monday

This week is a song by a band that I hated in high school. I heard this song on a long car ride and didn’t know who it was until I looked up whatever lyrics I could remember later. I was very surprised that this band still existed and that I really liked at least one of their songs. Just goes to show that if a song gets my mind storming on a story, I don’t care who the singer or band is.

Fall Out Boy – “Alone Together”

Music Monday

I’ve decided to start sharing my writing music so you can all hear the songs that help me create the books I write. I thought it would be fun to do this on a weekly basis, starting at the top of the playlist.

This week is Florence + The Machine’s song, “All This and Heaven Too.”
