Here is a list of some of the music I listened to while writing Rebirth, and I will continue to update this page as I move through the series, and add relevant additions.
My REBIRTH SOUNDTRACK:
Danse Macabre - Camille Saint Saens
The Six Wives of Henry VIII By Rick Wakeman - an album of instrumentals
Hungarian Gypsy Music - a random album I purchased, just called 'Hungarian Gypsy Music'. For more details, please get in touch with me. But, if you google it it comes up
Virgin Queen Soundtrack - for the BBC production staring Anne Marie Macduff as Elizabeth
specifically: The Virgin Queen feat. The Mediaeval Baebes, La Volta, Remember Me, Say Its Not So feat. The Mediaeval Baebes and Faithful Hearts.
Saviour by Lights (acoustic) - at first it was the original album version, but after I heard the acoustic that changed. This song really resonated with me for Katrine
Snow White Queen By Evanescence
Salva Nos by the Mediaeval Baebes - you can put on almost every album they have and it works with the The Afflicted series. With Book 2, I have more specific songs for characters
Thinking of You By Katy Perry
Moondance By Van Morrison
I Idolize You By Lizz Wright
Just Another Girl By Pete Yorn - from the Veronica Mars Soundtrack
You Don't Wanna By Tricky feat. Amber Sunshower - the beat of this song has sunk into my bones since I first heard it. Amber Sunshower's voice started to haunt my dreams; perfect for a supernatural book.
Music for The Mozart Effect Vol 5 - Relax and Unwind - Music for Deep Rest & Rejuvenation By Don Campbell
CURRENT HEAVY ROTATION/My personal The Afflicted mp3 playlist:
I thought I'd add this section to the soundtrack page so you can get a sense of what I'm listening to right now. This bit will constantly evolve, and I'm sure I'll be adding and removing things as I work.
You'll also notice some movie songs and whole movie soundtracks - when I fall in love with a movie I tend to look at the music they used as a way to set the atmosphere and I gravitate to it.
Can't Breathe by Fefe Dobson
Strip Me and Neon Lights by Natasha Bedingfeld - I love Neon Lights! Such a happy song, automatically transports me to a place where people are dancing and happy
Someone Like You and Set Fire to the Rain by Adele - I listened to this cd a lot when working on Book 2 and Book 3. Someone Like You is a huge inspiration
Sing for Me, Blank Page and Just a Fool by Christina Aguilera - especially Sing for Me. Absolutely epic.
February Air Acoustic by Lights (actually, the whole acoustic album)
I'm So Sick and All Around Me by Flyleaf
Black Swan Soundtrack
Lighters by Bad Meets Evil feat. Bruno Mars
Monster and Speechless by Lady Gaga
Bleeding Love by Leona Lewis
I Need A Doctor by Dr Dre and Eminem feat. Skylar Grey
Beatrice by the Mediaevael Baebes - spefically for the character called Beatrix
Katherine Jenkins's album Sacred Aria's
I Can't Stay Away by The Veronicas
Airplanes by B.O.B feat. Hayley Williams
Bad Reputation by Joan Jett
Secrets by One Republic
List of Demands (Reparations) by Saul Williams
Words I Never Said by Lupe Fiasco feat. Skylar Grey
Ave Maria by Beyonce
Firework, Circle the Drain, The One that Got Away acoustic, Not Like the Movies, ET, Part of Me, Wide Awake, Thinking of You Acoustic by Katy Perry
Grenade by Bruno Mars
Mosh by Eminem
Love the Way You Lie by Eminem feat. Rihanna
Faster Kill Pussycat by Paul Oakenfold feat. Brittany Murphy
A Song For You by Amy Winehouse
Where the Fence Is Low by Lights- Siberia is on heavy rotation always. I love this album, and When The Fence is Low reminds me of Victorie
Sober by P!nk
Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood, Strange Fruit and I Put A Spell On You by Nina Simone
Sweet Dreams (are made of this) by Emily Browning, Where is My Mind? by Yoav feat. Emily Browning, Asleep by Emily Browning from the Sucker Punch Soundtrack
From the Underworld Awakening Soundtrack (amazing!)
Made of Stone Renholder Remix by Evanescence
Trip The Darkness Ben Weinman remix by Lacuna Coil
Heavy Prey - Lacey Sturm from flyleaf feat. Geno Lenardo
Flyleaf's album Memento Mori - especially Again
Bluebird and Jar of Hearts by Christina Perri - lovesong is an amazing album. Most people know Christina Perri from her song on the Twilight Breaking Dawn soundtrack (same one as It Will Rain by Bruno Mars), but her album is fantastic
Keep Me High by Adaline - since this song was featured on the tv show Lost Girl I have not been able to get it out of my head. I am listening to her album Modern Romantics as I write this.
The A Team by Ed Sheeran - his whole album + is fantastic. Totally worth the listen.
So here it is! Keep checking back for more updates, and I will be posting youtube videos associated with some of the songs on facebook!
