Ok, so I've figured out how to put a playlist on my blog (thank you Barb) and I've started with my top #5 slow songs that I love right now. Two of these songs are popular but the rest- not so much. But I love them all. And when I love something I want everyone to know about it so they can love it too.
Like my #1- "Your Guardian Angel" by The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus (I know, weird band name but whatever). This is probably my favorite song of all-time. I don't know what it is about it, but the song just stirs something within me, causing my breath to quicken and my heart to pound. Everytime. No joke. I just can't get enough of it. If I still danced, I would so choreograph a contemporary piece to this song because it totally stirs my soul.
#2- "Jar of Hearts" by Christina Perri. There's something about this song too. What's funny is that I don't relate to the song, but I just get it, like I feel her pain. It makes me want to write this kind of pain for one of my characters, although that's not really possible right now. Hopefully later I'll have a character whose been trashed by a guy this badly because this song is major inspiration.
#3- "Two is Better Than One" by Boys Like Girls and Taylor Swift. Ok- I mention this song at the end of my book. It's funny because every time I hear it I see like a movie montage of my book in my head. It just fits so well with the story. If my book was made into a movie (I know, I know, I'm looking way ahead)- I would really want this song on the soundtrack. Or at the very least during the end credits.
#4- "Beside You" by Marianas Trench. Love it love it love it. This song was major inspiration for the 'love scenes' in my book. And I just love that the guy totally wails it out but it still sounds so romantic.
#5- "You and I Tonight" by Faber Drive. Again- I hear this as background music in one scene near the end of my book. It fits so perfectly. It makes me want Jessica and Lord Alric to just last forever in their last night together. Unfortunately (spoiler alert) it's not meant to be.
An honorable mention goes to #6- "Try" by Asher Book. This song is from the newest "Fame" movie. Asher's voice is so sweet, and the song is just pure and lovely and I swear I would melt if some guy sang this song to me like he does to the girl in the movie.
So that's my top 5 (well, 6). Stay tuned for some more faves...
