Today, as I was driving to the grocery store, the song “Wildest Dreams” by Taylor Swift came on the radio. It was the first time I had heard the song, but as soon as I heard the chorus it immediately brought to mind this scene from my book (which I’ve posted here before).
I got on iTunes and bought the song as soon as I got home! It’s not the first time that I’ve come across a song that reminded me of scenes or themes from my story, but it never ceases to give me a little thrill when it happens. I’m sure that I’m not the only person that this happens to–whether your a writer like me, or a reader that gets reminded of their favorite characters/books/scenes.
It also reminded me that I’ve been meaning to make a post about songs that bring to mind characters or scenes from my story. I’ve been working on the series for a long time (read: 10 years), so I’ve accumulated quite a long list over the years. But I can’t share all of those songs with you because many of them would end up being spoilers of events yet to come. For now, here are a few songs that reminded me of the main characters:
“Shatter Me” by Lindsey Sterling
“Once upon a December” by Liz Callaway, from the soundtrack Anastasia
“Skyscraper” by Demi Lovato
“Fight Song” by Rachel Platten
“Pretty Girl” by Chris Mann
“Straight to You” by Josh Groban
“DJ Got Us Fallin’ in Love” by Usher
“So She Dances” by Josh Groban
“Monster” by Imagine Dragons
There are many, many more, but those will have to wait for another time! ^_- What songs remind you of your favorite scenes or characters?
