To celebrate, I'm posting a playlist I put together for TBT. Some pieces are instrumental, others lyrical. They all fit an element of the story. Because some of those pieces overlap, putting the songs in chronological order wasn't a straightforward ordeal, but here they are. (Links to follow.)
Flight of the Silverbird - Two Steps from Hell - The whole story's theme.
The Sun is Rising - Britt Nicole
A Thousand Years - Christina Perri - The most perfect theme for the story's romance. Change thousand to hundred, and it's like the song was written for this tale.
Lucy - Hanne Hukkelberg
Star Sky - Two Steps from Hell - When you listen, scroll down to one of the first YouTube comments. It contains the lyrics, which I would post here if I wasn't concerned about copyright issues.
Calypso - At World's End soundtrack
A Thousand Years - The Piano Guys (cover)
I would add more notes about each song and why they matter to the story, but . . .
Heard any of these pieces before? Do you ever make playlists for your writing? What's your method of selecting songs? Feel free one or two (or ten)!
