Thursday Thirteen Songs from my Playlist

I listen to a lot of music when I write--songs to get me in the mood for a scene or to keep me there, songs to help me nail down my characters motivations and emotions... Sometimes it gets annoying. I'll wake up with a song in my head and it won't go away and I'll have to listen to it for hours--play it over and over again--until something else catches my ear.

Here's a list of thirteen songs, chosen more or less at random, that I've been listening to a lot during the past few months. It was hard cutting it down to just thirteen and, just so you know, they're in no particular order. Some are old, some are new, some are by bands that are now (sadly) defunct. Some come from movies, some have been featured on German soap operas (yes, Kate, you got me hooked)  others I've actually heard on the radio. Shocking--right?

My only criteria for choosing them (other than the fact I've been listening to them obsessively) is they had to be songs I could download and songs I could find videos of. Because the only thing worse than having one of these songs stuck in your head for days on end is having it stuck in your head with no way of actually listening to it--in its entirety. Enjoy!

Oh, yeah, my tastes in music range widely. I'd say Eclectic is my middle name, but that would make me PEG...hmm. Okay, never mind. ;)

Anyway,thanks, Debra, glad you liked it!
