Mood Music: Character Themes
I'm loving all these awesome songs you guys listen to! My song list is near to bursting now...
Next up: Character theme songs! Is there a song that made you squeak with joy when you first heard it because it so, so perfectly explained your MC (or any character)? Is there a song that you swear was written by someone who stalked you, read about your characters over your shoulder, then wrote a song about them?
I have dos songs for this one. The first is a song that I am absolutely in love with, partly because of the hauntingness of Natalie Merchant's voice, and partly because, well, it dead-on explains Yazoo Oxbow from Stream Pirate.
The second one is a song I only just heard today. I was driving to work when it came on the radio, thereby causing me to bounce in my seat while simultaneously steering with my elbows as I grabbed my notebook to jot down a few lines of lyrics so I could lyric search it later. I'm a safe driver.
Anyway, it fits Evan, my MC from White Like Ashes, beautifully.
