Playlist cont. Imagine Dragons- Demons (Official Video)

Here is a song that I listened to often while writing my WIP:











"Demons"

When the days are cold
And the cards all fold
And the saints we see
Are all made of gold

When your dreams all fail
And the ones we hail
Are the worst of all
And the blood’s run stale

I wanna hide the truth
I wanna shelter you
But with the beast inside
There’s nowhere we can hide

No matter what we breed
We still are made of greed
This is my kingdom come
This is my kingdom come

When you feel my heat
Look into my eyes
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide
Don’t get too close
It’s dark inside
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide

At the curtain’s call
It's the last of all
When the lights fade out
All the sinners crawl

So they dug your grave
And the masquerade
Will come calling out
At the mess you made

Don't wanna let you down
But I am hell bound
Though this is all for you
Don't wanna hide the truth

No matter what we breed
We still are made of greed
This is my kingdom come
This is my kingdom come

When you feel my heat
Look into my eyes
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide
Don’t get too close
It’s dark inside
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide

They say it's what you make
I say it's up to fate
It's woven in my soul
I need to let you go

Your eyes, they shine so bright
I wanna save that light
I can't escape this now
Unless you show me how

When you feel my heat
Look into my eyes
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide
Don’t get too close
It’s dark inside
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide

Playlist for my WIP Stars- Dead Hearts (Official video)

Here is a song Julie Daines thought fit will with my book (and I have to agree):





"Dead Hearts"

Tell me everything that happened
Tell me everything you saw
They had lights inside their eyes
They had lights inside their eyes

Did you see the closing window?
Did you hear the slamming door?
They moved forward, my heart died
They moved forward, my heart died

Please, please tell me what they look like
Did they seem afraid of you?
They were kids that I once knew
They were kids that I once knew

[Chorus]
I could say it, but you won't believe me
You say you do, but you don't deceive me
It's hard to know they're out there
It's hard to know that you still care
I could say it but you wont believe me
You say you do but you don't deceive me
Dead hearts are everywhere
Dead hearts are everywhere

Did you touch them, did you hold them?
Did they follow you to town?
They make me feel I'm falling down
They make me feel I'm falling down

Was there one you saw too clearly?
Did they seem too real to you?
They were kids that I once knew
They were kids that I once knew

[Chorus x2]

They were kids that I once knew
They were kids that I once knew
Now they're all dead hearts to you
Now they're all dead hearts to you

They were kids that I once knew
They were kids that I once knew
Now they're all dead hearts to you

I say music, you say quiet

Are you a music lover? What kind do you love?
Do you listen to music while you clean? Do certain songs feel like summer to you? (I Wear My Sunglasses at Night; Boys of Summer)(totally dating myself?).

Big question: What do you listen to while writing?
There's an app on my iPhone that sounds like I'm relaxing and writing on the beach: waves, seagulls, and a soft wind.
I also tune into classical music. I understand it helps make me smarter so it can't hurt, right? I love Mozart and Sate. Sometimes I forget to turn on the noise and quiet works for me too.

I first came across the idea of a playlist with Stephenie Meyers. The music fit with the mood and characters of the book. Many of her songs on the lists also made it into the movies.
Every few days I like to mix up my writing with a playlist I made for the story I'm working on.  I'm submitting a YA Sci/Fi this month so some of the songs are not ones I normally listen to but they fit.
My playlist is below. If you have any suggestions, I'd LOVE LOVE LOVE to hear them!

Does your story have its own playlist? Wanna share it? Give us a link to your blog or music list so we can take a listen.
Or do you have favorite songs remind you of summer? 



Here's my playlist:
