Music to Write By

One of the things I usually do for my works-in-progress is design soundtracks for them. While I can't listen to music while I write, I do love having music that helps me enter the story world, merely upon hearing it.

But I was having a devil of a time finding a soundtrack for Theodosia. Edwardian music is hard to find, at least labeled as such. Besides, Theo was rather ahead of her time so the little bit of Edwardian music I did find didn't really have the energy I was looking for.

But finally, with some help from a friend who is a self-proclaimed music freak, I was set on a path that led to a Theodosia soundtrack! Yeay! (and a HUGE thank you to Caridad Ferrer!)

Just in case you're curious, here it is:

Manic Monday- The Bangles
Walk Like an Egyptian - The Bangles
Girls Just Want to Have Fun - Cyndi Lauper
Orange Crush - R.E.M. (I have no idea why, it just works)
Other Side of the World - KT Tunstall
She Bop - Cyndi Lauper
Rumble in Brighton - The Brian Setzer Orchestra
Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds - Elton John
It's the End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine) - R.E.M
Man On the Moon - R.E.M.
Suddenly I See - KT Tunstall
