Writing Stuff, Tracklists, Sway

Falling into this book I’m writing. Changing gears from paranormal to contemporary. First in a new series so I need to get a whole new flavor going. Also shifting from sensual to erotic (this one is D/s themed). One of my favorite tools for finding that mood and keeping it as I work is music and the tracklists I make for each book.

On the tracklist for Sway so far:

The Pretenders – Up The Neck, Mystery Achievement

Marilyn Manson – Speed the Pain

PJ Harvey – Yuri G, Rid of Me, Man Size, One Line

Van Halen – Ain’t Talkin Bout Love

Little Dragon – Please Turn, Ritual Union

Rosemary Clooney/Perez Prado – Sway

Bette Midler – Stuff Like That There

Andrews Sisters – Rum and Coca Cola

Depeche Mode – Personal Jesus

Florence + The Machine – Blinding, Raise it Up

The Beatles – Helter Skelter

Arctic Monkeys – She’s Thunderstorms

Foo Fighters – Walk, Alandria

Eagles of Death Metal – Don’t Speak, Cherry Cola

Chaka Khan – Ain’t Nobody

Portishead – Glory Box

Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Maps

Jay Z – Dirt off Your Shoulder

Gnarls Barkley – When Was the Last Time

Led Zeppelin – The Rain Song, Over The Hills and Far Away

Chemical Brothers – Private Psychedelic Reel

Goldfrapp – Twist

Young MC – Bust a Move

    I absolutely LOVE that there are track lists to your books. I associate so many things with the music that I’m listening to at the time – it’s nice to hear that other people do the same thing.
