Soundtrack to the Epic Novel
Okay, I confess, I have written songs for the Epic Novel, but just now, I’m talking about produced songs that make me think of the Epic Novel. Surprise! they are mostly rock. When I hear a song that evokes certain emotions or brings a character into focus, I file it away and eventually acquire it for my story playlist. Here are a few:
*note that I listen to the radio edits of these songs. They aren’t all kid-friendly.
“Numb” by Linkin Park
“Hate Me” by Blue October
“Left Me For Dead” by Rob Dougan
“Boulevard of Broken Dreams” by Greenday
“Hello” by Evanesence
“Hide” by RED
“The Reason” by Hoobastank
“My Happy Ending” by Avril Lavigne?
I know these are old songs. I’m not a fan of current style. ::shrugs::
I recently added “Hurt” by Johnny Cash, but I’m not certain why except that it really moves me.
