Crystal Kingdom Playlist

I love listening to music when I write, and the full list of songs I listened to while writing Crystal Kingdom added up to 27 songs. I narrowed it down to the best 14 that fit the feel of the novel. My favorite song on the list is Aston’s cover of “Bulletproof” (originally performed by La Roux, which I also love so much). In Crystal Kingdom, Chapter 51: Dallience was written specifically around that song. It really set the scene so perfectly.

Here’s the YouTube playlist that includes all 14 songs on the playlist, plus a track list below.

1. Aston – “Bulletproof”
2. The Airborne Toxic Event – “Sometime Around Midnight”
3. Blondfire – “Dear In Your Headlights”
4. Broods – “Never Gonna Change”
5. Family of the Year – “Hero”
6. Fauntella Crow – “Delicate”
7. John Newman – “Love Me Again”
8. Jon E. K. – “Cold World”
9. L’anarchiste – “Juneau”
10. Mapei – “Don’t Wait”
11. MisterWives – “Vagabond”
12. of Verona – “Castles”
13. Vitamin String Orchestra – “Change (In the House of Flies)”
14. Meg Myers – “Make a Shadow”

    I love the fact that you add playlists for the books, it adds a whole different dimension to what I read. I plan on reading the book first with out the music then listening to see if the songs match my perspective. I can’t wait till August to read this book!
