A couple of months ago, I posted the playlist of songs I listened to most while I was writing Waiting For Spring. In case you’re interested, here’s the top three for The Wendy House, which I’m currently working on.
Silver Springs, Fleetwood Mac.
“I’ll follow you down till the sound of my voice will haunt you.”
I love the song, but I really dig watching the video. Check out how intense things get between Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham at around the 4 minute mark.
Collide, Howie Day
“I’ve found I’m scared to know I’m always on your mind.”
More the music than the lyrics. It’s just a good song for me to imagine driving a long, sad distance to. Don’t ask me why. And this live version is great.
Lose Yourself, Eminem
“No games, I’ma change what you call rage. Tear this motherfuckin’ roof off like two dogs caged.”
The best song ever for pumping yourself up for something, in this case for committing a [fictional] murder.
