The only one I've ever made was for a kid's horror/adventure novel that I wrote from the summer of 2007 to... I think February of '08. This is it:Zombie - The CranberriesWhen You're Gone - The CranberriesDuel - BondHymn - BondInside of You - HoobastankDo You Sleep - Lisa LoebDon't Cry Out - Shiny Toy GunsThe Flag - Barenaked LadiesWrap Your Arms Around Me - Barenaked LadiesThe Passenger - Michael HutchenceThere is a Light - Nick CaveEvery Me and Every You - PlaceboThe Hunter Gets Captured by the Game - Massive AttackColorblind - Counting CrowsRelease - The Tea PartyI'll See it Through - TexasSo far, for Aigaion Girl, I have Barry McGuire's Eve of Destruction, Don't Stop Believing by Journey and Coldplay's The Scientist - plus the songs that are actually mentioned in the story, like Dreamweaver and Total Eclipse of the Heart.
I have a song to donate to the A/G playlist: It's The End of the World As We Know It, either the R.E.M. original or the Great Big Sea cover.I also have a playlist for the story I'm working on right now, I Do Believe in Fairies:Acoustic No. 3 - the Goo Goo DollsAngels on the Moon - Thriving IvoryAs The World Falls Down - David Bowie (why yes, I am a geek)Can't Take It In - Imogen HeapClocks - ColdplayClub Thing - YoavDead On Arrival - Fall Out BoyFairy Dance - James Newton HowardFlying - dittoHe's A Pirate - Klaus BadeltHome At Last - Trevor JonesI Do Believe in Fairies - James Newton HowardI'm Still Here - Johnny RzeznikKiss Me - Lauren BarrettOld School - HedleyOnly the Beginning of the Adventure - Harry Gregson-WilliamsPeter Returns - James Newton HowardThe Pirates Who Don't Do Anything - Relient KPlease Don't Die - James Newton HowardRelated Theme Song - The VeronicasSantiago - Loreena McKennittShooting Star - Andy Brown & Ilan EshkeriStolen - Dashboard ConfessionalStolen Child - Loreena McKennittThe Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny - Lemon DemonUnderground - David BowieWhat If - Emilie AutumnWhen I Grow Up - GarbageWhere the Sun Breaks Through the Mist - Michael SweeneyWild Child - EnyaYou Don't See Me - Josie and the PussycatsIt can rightly be said that I have very mainstream musical tastes.
As The World Falls Down is *not* geeky! Actually, I have it on a partially-formed playlist for a silly vampire story I'm working on. If you want geeky, the story is called "Valentine Evenings"I think I will add It's The End of the World as We Know It to my list.
Ooh, I want to read it now! Silly vampire fluff is always good.And I didn't say the *song* was geeky. I'm just more the geek for trying to make songs from Labyrinth fit every story I write.(Although in this case,the story itself is rife with Laby refs, and so it kind of makes sense.)
I meant the use of it in a playlist was not geeky. Or, if it is geeky, it's geeky in a really cool way, because all things Labyrinth are cool.Unfortunately, I don't have most of that story anymore (it was on my laptop that got stolen), so it'll be a while before there's anything to read, but it promises to be ridiculous and fluffy.
Laptop theft is not very nice. Especially when the theft-ee (that is not a word) in question is a writer.Jerk.Hooray for fluff!
As The World Falls Down has to be one of the best songs ever. It usually finds its way onto at least one of my story playlists no matter what I´m writing.The playlist for the story I´ve been writing since I was five (I really should retitle that The Story That Rainbow Brite Spawned) is, for the most part, the entirety of Mike Oldfield´s Tubular Bells III, with not a lot else thrown in, and what else there is, is...more Mike Oldfield. Especially the song Flowers of the Forest.Whatever else I´m writing can usually make do with random selections from my entire music collection...which almost always includes (for starters) Mezzanine by Massive Attack (the whole album), The Scientist by Coldplay, nearly everything by Keane, and - now - Crystal Castles.And, for some odd reason, AC/DC.What can I say? I like my techno-triphop-piano!rock-headbanger stuff >:)
Sounds like fun.I like my techno-triphop-piano!rock-headbanger stuff too. It's way more fun than sticking with just one boring genre."Story that Rainbow Brite spawned", hmm? I desire to know more.
Itś got Travelers to another Land, unicorns, flying unicorns, giant-assed lions with wings, mythical creatures galore, princes, princesses, a Queen, a castle the size of a city, and an epic battle against Creatures of the Nightmare...itś evolved a lot since I was five, but - essentially - itś the Story that Rainbow Brite Spawned.The Rainbow Brite part comes in when they get there, and have to travel on a rainbow...I should warn you now...I had a pink room with rainbows on the walls and about eight unicorn figurines as a child. Itś rather coloured my thinking >:)
Sounds epic.It's okay. My room had polka-dots. Now it's pink.And my writing features angst rather heavily. Hmm.
I grew up in a pink room with kitten wallpaper. Most of my stories contain one of: death, vampires, taboo relationships, zombies, violence, murder, improbable romance and the colour pink. Hehe, kind of makes you wonder what would have happened if my parents had let me paint my room black, like I wanted :)Also, I decided to take E's advice and make a playlist for Aigaion Girl. Once I had about 50 songs in my winamp window, I went to save the list, and it popped up with Save as: Aigaion Girl. Apparently, at some point I made a playlist for that story. It's over 80 songs long, and most of the ones that I'd put in the new list were already there. It's really odd because I can't for the life of me remember making it.I won't list all of them here, but I'll throw a couple out there.XTC - Dear GodHelicopter Girl - Satan's Seventh BrideCounting Crows - ColourblindLady Gaga - Again, AgainKate Bush - Running Up That HillKeane - A Bad DreamWeezer - No One ElseSurvivor - Eye of the TigerFour Star Mary - PainFace to Face - The Devil You Know
I love weird coincidences like that.
