Tidbit Tuesday: Song Inspiration
The one I am currently working on doesn't have a huge playlist. Some of my works have had a full album dedicated to them, no less than 5-7 songs on their soundtrack. This one focuses a lot on characters, and it was hard finding songs that would put across everything that the hero and heroine were going through.
Until I stumbled upon What Would Happen If We Kissed and Halo. Suddenly, I had what I didn't know I'd been looking for. These were my goals - what would happen if they kissed? When would that happen? How do I take my heroine on this journey that will make her find her angel in the hero, in the light of his halo?
The first time I heard What Would Happen If We Kissed by Meredith Brooks, I knew there was a 'story' in there. Listen to those lyrics, watch the video! Can you describe sexual tension any better? It's a song that takes you, flips you over, and lays you back down in a crash, because of the power of its words, of its emotions! It became my story's love anthem, the pacing of their feelings, the culmination of their attraction.
Watch it, you won't be disappointed!
Then there's Halo. The lyrics to this seem to have been written for my heroine. She who has to trust, who doesn't know how to, falls in love with this man and has him bringing down all the walls she'd built. Powerful, powerful words, a heartfelt declaration, that embodied the destination point I needed my heroine to reach. Here's the video - listen to those words!
From Mauritius with love,
