I have spent way too much time on Twitter this week talking with authors about music. You all know by now I am a huge music fan, maybe even more so over books. So it’s not surprise my favorite interview questions with authors are about music. For example, Dakota Cassidy has a really bad obsession with Barry Manilow. Honestly, it’s slightly stalkerish. Her boyfriend bought her tickets to see Barry & this is what happened.
Two nights ago, she tweet sang Barry to me…I was afraid. I love Dakota but I do not share her love for all things Barry, unless her name is Lola.
In February, I had a big long convo with Mark Henry about music. It ended with him sending me a GIANT list of bands that I had to listen too. I swear to you, Mark is my musical twin. His taste is so out there it mimics mine, as does our friend Synde of Cemetery Cat Designs. If we get started on music, it will go on and on and on, & include a shit-ton of tweeted YouTube Vids. Such as my favorite Chemical Brothers video, Hey Girl Hey Boy (Click Here, Can’t Embed.)
Stacia Kane had a great idea for Unholy Ghosts & made a playlist that you can download to go along with the book! Love it!
Laurell K. Hamilton is always tweeting about who shes listening to while writing.
Nicole Peeler got me hooked on Editors a few months back
My BIGGEST pet peeve has to be the over-use of one of my all time favorite cover songs, Running Up That Hill by Placebo. I cannot tell you the number of times I have seen this song mentioned in books, TV shows & movies. Please authors STOP killing this song for me, PLEASE!
I love when authors include playlists in their books, I wish more would do it.
So WLP wants to know, what song do you think relates to a book you’ve read?
Do you like when authors include playlists in their books?
