Playlist Archive: Fallin For You

I thought I’d share another song from my Foreshadow playlist today: “Fallin For You” by Colbie Caillat. I couldn’t find the full video to post, so I just posted one with the lyrics. I may have mentioned this before, but I don’t choose songs for each chapter of my books. I write really short chapters and that would be a lot of songs! Instead, I choose songs that go with overall themes of the books.

I put this song on my playlist for several reasons. I really like Colbie Caillat. I think she has a great voice and is really talented. I think this song really fits for when Raena starts “falling for” one of the guys (I won’t tell you who, because that would spoil things). I think it summarizes her feelings fairly well: she wants to tell him, but she’s not sure if she should–especially considering everything else that happens.

Playlist Archive: Bad Romance

I thought today I would share a song from my Foreshadow playlist: Bad Romance by A Smile From The Trenches. Now, I know this is originally a Lady Gaga song, but once my friend showed me this version, I just had to stick it on my playlist.

Now, I don’t generally do a song per chapter when I write. I tend to just choose songs for my playlists that go with the theme of certain scenes, or relationships. I chose this song because I thought it fits Rae and Andrei’s relationship. The two of them definitely have a bad, crazy romance going on.
