MAINLY BY MOONLIGHT Playlist redux
What's really interesting though, is when the playlist begins to feel out-of-sync with the emotional tone of the book, and that's actually what happened here!
Here's the original playlist for Mainly by Moonlight.
Now, a lot of the songs--"Lift Me Up," "Are You Strong Enough to be My Man"--didn't change. Those still feel perfect for the book. But others--"American Witch," for example--began to feel too dark, too ugly for how I wanted this book to read. The deeper I got into the story, the more playful and whimsical it felt.
And then there were points like...why would I have Bryan Ferry's version of "I Put a Spell on You," when John adores Nina Simone?
Anyway, here's the newly revised playlist :-)
I Put a Spell on You - Nina Simone
Lift Me Up - OneRepublic
OU LA LA LA (All Eyes On Us) - NVDES
What if I Told You - Jason Walker
Bewitched, Bothered & Bewildered - Ella Fitzgerald
Are You Strong Enough - Stevie Nicks & Sheryl Crow
Bewitched - Steve Lawrence
Your Hand I Will Never Let it Go
A Sky Full of Stars - Cold Play
