Creating Soundtracks...

So I love music...all the way from classical (Tchaikovsky is a personal favorite) to musicals (Les Miserables and Rocky Horror Picture Show are my two favorites) to country to rock to oldies to rap to pop...I love music and as such I have Pandora playing in my ears every chance I get (Pink is singing to me right now, Staind was just on...:D) and as it happens, there will come on a song where I clap (sometimes out loud, forgetting other people can hear me even if I can't hear them with my ear buds in...I also tend to forget they can see me when I'm dancing along) but I clap because this would be the PERFECT song for THIS PARTICULAR scene in THIS BOOK and I have a notebook that lists 15-20 songs for all of my novels. Songs that go well (sometimes too well...to the point that they would seem too coincidental if my characters were hanging on and this song played) with the events of the novel. I think it would be fun to have a soundtrack with each novel...it would be a nightmare getting permissions for everything, but it would be amazing! I would love to have a CD with my novel that you could listen to while you read or after you read...I don't know if I would suggest listening to the CD before you read the novel as there might be spoilers :D It's fun though, to hear a song and know it would be perfect for when my novels get made into movies :D (Hey, a girl has to plan ahead, doesn't she). If you think of any songs that would go well with one of my novels, please let me know. My list is always growing as Pandora introduces me to new songs. (And then sometimes, oh no...what are you thinking, sweet Pandora...)
