My Playlist

Douglas Adams once did it, and I think it's a great idea as well. For the next few weeks I want to list all the tracks I listen(ed) to during this crazy novel-writing experience. Since this is an inter-genre experience, you'll find everything from J-pop to alternative metal. I'm updating and adding stuff on the fly, so visit my playlist from time to time.

Chapter 1

Scott Matthews - Elusive

Something old and something new. Scott Matthews knows how to put it into a song. After all, he is Jeff Buckley, reincarnated. Nuff said.

Chapter 2 

Deftones - Street Carp

Action, lots of action, Teenage Angst and swishing cloaks. The line "It's not that I care" pretty much sums it up.

Chapter 3

Radiohead - House Of Cards

Insight, lots of insight.

Chapter 4

I Blame Coco - Turn Your Back On Love

Chapter 5

Yoko Kanno - Power Of Light

Its vibrancy and joyfulness is unique, and I admire Yoko for her fearlessness to approach stale genres like classical and pop and her ability to make them her own => J-pop neo-classical score! I need some of Yoko's moxy. :)

Chapter 6

Optimism! Kaley is packing her bags, and so do I. Every word forms a sentence, every sentence leads to a new page. Maps, books, and a picture frame. She's on her way, and so am I.

Chapter 9

Hybrid - Finished Symphony (Deadmau5 Remix)

Big journey ahead, those guys from Hybrid really know how to spin "progressive" like it was 10 years ago. And Deadmou5 is a legend to some. :)

Chapter 10 

Marcel Legane & Cass Lowe - Friendly Fire

Cass captures the essence of melancholy in this Downbeat R'n'B song. Exactly what I needed for crack-opening chapter 10.

Chapter 14

Fenomenon - Everybody Wants To Rule The World

Speaking of momentous lyrics, magically, the line There's a room where the light won't find you also applies to the heart of Chaper 14.
