This week we are beginning a new mode of the blogging sensation that has been sweeping the nation, Music to Make Write to. For the next several installments I am making other people do my dirty work and give us songs that inspire them and some explanations for their picks. Today Tracy from Forever Endeavor is joining us with three of her favorite songs.
Mads Langer - Beauty of the Dark
This is one of my favorites when I’m writing a scene where my MC is in a painfully, bittersweet moment. There’s something soulfully haunting and powerful behind the build up of this song. Makes me want to put all my characters into angst-y situations just so I can listen to it non-stop.
Muse - Supermassive Black Hole
I admit, I first heard this song from Twilight, but when I use it to write I don’t envision vampires playing baseball (though I adore both vampires and baseball). This is the song I love to listen to when there is good tension and my badass character is doing something that straddles the line between right and wrong. Oh, it’s also my “let’s have hot, up-against-the-wall sex” scene song too.
Tantric - Down and Out
This is my kick-ass, all the action/fighting/ battle-is-about-to-go-down RIGHT NOW song. I mean seriously, when a violin sounds evil and ominous, you know you’ve got a hell of a song!
That was fun!! You’re lucky I stopped myself at three. :D
