Express Yourself Meme - It's Playlist Week. Dani and I look forward to seeing your playlists... whether you're a writer and have one for your WIP/MS or if you're a non-writer, but would like to share songs that describe your life. Whatever the case, we want to listen and/or read about you!
So....what would your playlist sound like?
I have about a dozen songs on my playlist for my current MS, Wishful Thinking. I don't always listen to this when I'm writing. This is more of what would describe my book. A lot of times, I write at night when everyone is asleep. Other times, I write with chaos all around me. So I can listen to music or not when I write, but when I do listen, I usually choose this MS's playlist.
I’ll be sharing three songs from that list, and will talk more about my MS on Wednesday for IWSG, but for now I’ll say that it's a YA fantasy with romantic elements. Kara is my main girl and Jagger is my main guy. (And if you've been following my blog, you already KNOW that Maroon 5 songs will be on this playlist. :D )
***Woman by Maroon 5***
This song is two-fold. Not only does it describe Jagger's feelings for Kara, but also, it explains that she's something "different"... Jagger is the first to discover it.
Woman - Maroon 5
If I'd be so inclined to climb up beside you Would you tell me that the time just isn't right And if I ever find the key you hide so well Will you tell me that I can spend the night Leaving your smell on my coat Leaving your taste on my shoulder I still fail to understand What it is about this woman If I could bottle up the chills that you give me I would keep them in a jar next to my bed And if I should ever draw a picture of a woman It is you that would come flowing from my pen Leaving your clothes on the floor Making me walk out the door And I still fail to understand What it is about this woman Helplessly melting As I stand next to the sun And as she burns me I am screaming out for more Drink every drop of liquid In the heat that I've become Pop me open, spill me out onto the floor Leaving your smell on my coat Leaving your taste on my shoulder I still fail to understand, fail to understand What it is about this woman***Sad by Maroon 5*** This describes Kara's feelings for Jagger. She pushes him away for all the wrong--and right--reasons.
***You Give Me Something by James Morrison***
This song fits Kara and Jagger's relationship perfectly.
You won’t stay with me in the morning
