Music Monday: 29th April 2013

This week's song is I've Just Seen A Face by The Beatles, as sung by Jim Sturgess in the film Across The Universe.

I picked it because this week, I'm going to start a new WIP - code name #HolidayRomance - and this is the first song on the playlist. This playlist is going to be made up entirely of 60s songs - both orginals and covers - because that is the music that the FMC and narrator, Audrey, loves that period a ridiculous amount. This song is absolutely perfect for when she meets the MMC, Owain, both in terms of the lyrics and the mood of this version.

Music Monday: 22nd April 2012

This week's song is Call Me Maybe by Carly Rae Jepson, as sung by YouTubers Alex Goot, Chad Sugg and Dave Days.

I picked because I'm currently plotting two projects, one of which is a music based novel called Lost in Stereo, and this song is first on the playlist! And the video is bloody brilliant. That is all.

Music Monday: 15th April 2013

This week's song is You've Got To Pick A Pocket Or Two from Oliver!

I picked it because this weekend, I wrote my version of this scene and I absolutely adore this song, so I was ridiculously happy to have an excuse to listen to it on repeat. It's as simple as that.

Music Monday: 8th April 2013


This week's song is Consider Yourself from the musical Oliver!

I picked it because I listened to that soundtrack a lot in the last week and this song is in the scene that I just finished in my version, Ollie. Plus, it's ridiculously fun to sing along to. :D

Firstly, a quick update on word count stuff: I'm aiming for 18,000 words on Ollie for Camp WriMo now, instead of 19,000, which is 600 words a day minimum.

Now to business.

This week's song is Lily's Theme by Alexandre Desplat from the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 soundtrack.

I picked it because the album is my current writing music, and this piece is such a chilling and yet amazingly wonderful start to the movie and the album. And it's Harry Potter. Need I say more?
