Two songs really stood out for me and were perfect for setting the tone of this scene, the first was Flame Trees and the other was Walk On.
It was while I was listening to 'Walk On' that I realised I was reliving my own teenage angst as the song took me back in time, bringing with it all that pain and life experience that comes with your first real heartbreak. I was sixteen and had just experienced my very first, gut wrenching break up. We've all been there right?
It's always amazed me how hearing a song can transport you back in time. There are many songs that as soon as I hear them, I can imediately see, smell, feel and hear everything about whatever experience my mind has related that song to in my past.
It's just amazing.
I decided I'd like to make a sound track for this book- songs that I listened to and helped set the mood for writing, so you guys can listen to it and maybe learn a little more about the characters.
So it got me thinking, what are some songs that throw you back in time? Good or bad, those moments that seem to remain ready and waiting for the first few bars of a song to sound and then you're right back there in the middle of an emotion. Let's hear them!
