Music Monday

Mondays are hard, so let’s conquer them with music!

I love music; I listen to music in the car, at work, and it is also part of my writing process. Sometimes a scene may be inspired by a song or I find songs that relate to what I have written; either way I always have a separate playlist for each project I’m working on in addition to a master playlist of all the songs I come across and enjoy listening to. Thank you Spotify!

 

On Mondays I will share one song that I’m currently in love with, has inspired me, or relates to one of my projects.

cacafba214864f2ecf934f763a915468Sorry I missed last week! Thanks for joining me for Music Monday! Today’s song is Thinking Out Loud by Ed Sheeran. I’ve been in love with this song for some time, I mean how can you not love this song. The lyrics are beautiful, and Ed’s voice… Let’s just say I’m a huge fan (drools). This song has held a longtime spot on my Breaking Pointe Playlist. The lyrics don’t perfectly watch the story, but it was the music video that added to what the lyrics were saying and made the song resonate with the Breaking Pointe enough to be on the playlist. Listen to this song, watch the music video, and share your thoughts. I’ll just be over here with it on repeat.

Rain

Taylor Sullivan took her life for granted until she received news that would change her life forever. In a state of denial she met Kyle, who didn’t end up being what she expected. She wasn’t able to escape her new reality, but with his friendship, just maybe she could survive it.

2469938jpgThanks for joining me for Music Monday! Today’s song is Lullaby by Dixie Chicks. I discovered this song shortly after my daughter was born. It is so beautiful; I was looking for some songs to play for her and sing to her. I had never heard this one, and It instantly resonated with me. Becoming a mom completely changes me in amazing ways. I love my daughter more than anything and I can just look at her and feel more love and happiness than I have ever experiences before. She makes every day exceptional. This song is about that unconditional love.

“How long do you wanna be loved
Is forever enough, is forever enough
How long do you wanna be loved
Is forever enough
‘Cause I’m never, never giving you up”

0a024b2acc7d2863df414970067b1b8b.600x600x1Thanks for joining me for Music Monday! Today’s song is Drunk Girl by Chris Janson. This song tells a story about the proper way to treat someone who is drunk, but this can apply to beyond alcohol. I love the message of this song. There are so many terrible situations people find themselves in, especially when people are taken advantage of when they have had alcohol or other substances. And of course, this song has inspired some ideas for a story, we will see if anything comes of it in the future :) Definitely give this one a listen!

220px-Carrie_Underwood,_Cry_Pretty_official_cover_artThis Monday’s I’m cheating, I’m not only talking about a single song but also want to discuss an entire album: Cry Pretty by Carrie Underwood. The Song with the same title is definitely worth mentioning as well since I’ve listened to it a ton! Carrie just released this new album and I’m enjoying it, I don’t have a favorite to pick out necessarily, but Carrie is one of those artists where I can enjoy listening to the entire album instead of only a song or two. There are some artists I only like a few songs of their work and am not adding the others to my playlist. I found myself adding every single song to my master playlist as I listed for the first time. Go on and give this album or at least the single of the same name a listen and see if you find yourself doing the same!

MiddleofaMemoryThis Monday’s song is Middle of a Memory by Cole Swindell. I’ve loved this song since the very first time I heard it. I was instantly able to imagine a vivid scene when listening to this song, which gave me a story idea that I haven’t written yet. So many story ideas, so little time! I have the idea written down, so hopefully in the future I can give it a shot :).

I enjoy his other songs as well, you should definitely give him a listen if you haven’t already!

61RoxmtD-1L._SS500_PIPJStripe-Robin-Large-V2,TopLeft,0,0This Monday’s song is Peace by O.A.R. I’m choosing this song because it resinates with my novel Breaking Pointe. This song has been on my playlist since early on in my writing process.

Breaking Pointe is a revenge story, the protagonist is seeking pay back and is in full-on fight mode. She meets someone (love interest) who is interfering with her plan and he wants to get to know her and understand her, but she is fighting her own war, so she is not making it easy for him and isn’t ready for peace yet. I think this song hits on some of the feelings the characters are experiencing.

“I just wanna make you laugh
I just wanna see that smile
Babe, we’re only here, oh, for a little while
I just wanna hold you till we fall asleep
I want love, I want us, I want you, I want me, I want peace

Everybody needs a place
Somewhere that’s warm and safe
A shelter from this crazy world we’re in,
But tonight I let the rain inside
And took away your place to hide
I’m sorry that I made you cry again”

“Dance around this bedroom
Like we’ve only got tonight
Not about to let you
Go until the morning light
You can be my whole world
If I can be your satellite
Let’s dance around this bedroom
Like tonight’s our only night”

515GjuenfOL._SS500This Monday’s song is Used to Be by Matt Nathanson. I’m choosing this song because I just heard it for the first time this weekend. This is a new release off of his upcoming album. I love the tone and how relatable it is; I can feel what the song is about.

Have you listened to Matt Nathanson? If not, go listen to his music NOW! He is fantastic and I have also gotten to see him perform live a few years ago and he did not disappoint.

I have been into him since my friend Devon introduced his music to me when we both worked at Borders. That’s right, Borders; Cue the tears and good memories!

513M0xDVanL._SS500_PIPJStripe-Robin-Large-V2,TopLeft,0,0This Monday’s song is Get To You by Michael Ray. I’m choosing this song because as soon as I heard it on the radio the first time I was hooked, I  was in the car, so I kept repeating the title in my head until I got home and could look it up and add it to my playlist. I immediately added it to my Breaking Pointe playlist because it fit some emotions my characters experience through the book. I then repeatedly listened to the song!
