I’m ready, I think, to make the Soundtrack CD for my newest WIP. This is a story about a lawyer and an Interpol Agent- who is not exactly what he seems. Here are the songs I’ve chosen. Couldn’t resist the Interpol one called NYC as the story takes place in New York City (or starts there, anyway).
Howard Jones : Things Can Only Get Better; Alan Parsons Project: Eye in the Sky; 10CC: I’m Not in Love; Pink: Do What You Do; Pink: Waiting For Love; Stevie Wonder: Boogie on Reggae Woman; Dan Hall: Never Thought; Pete Townshend: Let My Love Open the Door; Yardbirds: For Your Love; Turtles: Happy Together; Blood, Sweat and Tears: You Made Me So Very Happy; Walter Egan: Magnet and Steel; Dell Shannon: Runaway; Steely Dan: Rikki Don’t Lose That Number; Interpol: NYC
Just for fun, here is a picture from one of my trips to NYC
The subway had a fire as we sat in Juniors eating lunch – we got to see all the action- AND some pretty cute firemen. Why is it that all firemen are handsome?
This is the song list for the manuscript Solo Honeymoon. Finding a title for this one just about kicked my butt. It was called The Italian Novel in my head for months til I landed on the real title. The heroine finds her fiance in the middle of the floor in flagrante with one of her bridesmaids. Rather than stay home and face the shame, she flees on her honeymoon trip with her best friend instead of the fiance. She falls for a sexy Italian dude. And then the fiance follows her to Italy and eventually to New York City for the denouement. Here are the songs:
Gloria Gaynor: I Will Survive; Dean Martin: Mambo Italiano and That’s Amore; Bonnie Tyler: Holding Out For a Hero; Weather Girls: Its’s Raining Men; Arsenium: Love Me, Love Me; INXS: Need You Tonight; Pink: Oh My God; Texas: In Demand; Daughtry: It’s Not Over; Aerosmith: I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing; Secondhand Serenade: It’s Not Over.
I DO know I have two songs called It’s Not Over but they both fit the mood of the manuscript. Here is my inspiration for the hero, Dario:
His name is Edoardo Costa. Very Nice, Hey?
As promised, here is the soundtrack for my book called Redemption for the Devil: This is a story of an Irish Republican Army bomber, (Protestant- yeah- I know most of them were Catholic but he rebelled against his family), masquerading as a bartender, that falls in love with a nice Catholic girl. They are on the ship, the Mauretania, in late 1919. He is supposed to blow it up but has a hard time doing it because he will kill this Irish lass he has fallen for. What a dilemma. She is the singer on board in the first class lounge so some of the music is pretty old.
so, here are the songs: Three Dog Night: One; Paul Anka: Lonely Boy; Nat King Cole: Stardust (and yeah- I was gonna have her sing it but it was written after my time period- dang!); Harry Connick, Jr.: Danny Boy; John McCormack: Wild Irish Rose; Chris Isaak: Yellow Bird; Tom Jones: She’s a lady; Billy Joel: Always a Woman, The Stranger, and Only the Good Die Young; Back Street Boys: Bad Boy and Don’t Wanna Lose you; George Michael: Kissing a Fool and One More Try; Soundtrack from Poseidon Advanture: Morning After; and Pink: Stop Falling.
So, a bit eclectic this one, huh? Anyway, I found this picture on the net and it seemed appropriate as Liam is a bartender and Peg is the lounge singer.
