Today in the studio (I have decided to refer to my blog as a studio here so I sound more legit and/or hip!) we have Candace from The Misadventures in Candyland to share a few of her favorite writing type jams with us.
1) Men are all the Same by The Used
This song isn't my favorite by The Used but one random Sunday drive, after hearing it about a billion times, it gave me the ending to the WIP that got me agented. The part in the middle where the music climaxes, explodes, then fades to the sound of a skipping record track just before the sound of glass breaks through was everything to me. I nearly crashed the car. And now when I hear it, I see my ending like a movie in my head. Crystal. Clear.
2) Different by Acceptance
These guys are no longer a band, but this tune sounds like the perfect soundtrack for my MC when she feels like she's on the outside of it all.
3) Swept Away by Flyleaf
Despite some of the overtly religious wording (which don't bother me,) the music and screaming sound exactly like what I imagine my MC to sing like. Strong, yet feminine. Gritty, yet beautiful.
