Ice Kissed Playlist

I love listening to music when I write, and the full list of songs I listened to while writing Ice Kissed added up to 40 songs. I narrowed it down to the best 15 that fit the feel of the novel. I listened to A LOT of Meg Myers and Lorde while writing this series, but I didn’t include more than one song by either of them on the soundtrack to vary it up a bit. So here’s the YouTube playlist that includes all 15 songs on the playlist, plus a track list below.

  1. Avila – “Dream On”
  2. Bastille – “Daniel in the Den”
  3. Body Parts – “Desperation”
  4. CHVCHES – “Get Away”
  5. Lana Del Rey – “Once Upon a Dream”
  6. The Limousines – “Last Dance”
  7. Lorde – “Glory and Gore”
  8. Maximo Park – “Reluctant Love”
  9. Meg Myers – “Desire”
  10. The National – “About Today”
  11. Nico Vega – “Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)”
  12. Rainbow Arabia – “Without You”
  13. Robyn – “Indestructible (Acoustic)”
  14. Speak – “Too Afraid”
  15. Zero 7 – “Don’t Call it Love”

    I’m horrible at picking songs for books, so it’s always amazing when I see one! I don’t know a lot of these songs, but I do know Desire by Meg and I love it!
