Band Geek Thursdays: Megan's playlist for BETWEEN

Hey guys!!

I basically have a playlist for everything in my life. You think I'm exaggerating. I'm not. I have a cleaning playlist, a kid-safe play list, a "Songs Megan Sings REALLY LOUDLY" playlist, and obviously, a playlist of songs for the best kitchen dance parties ever.

So it's only natural that I have a playlist for everything I write. And today, I'm sharing my playlist for BETWEEN.

BETWEEN is a YA fantasy that has a bit of romance in it between my two MCs, Seth and Harper. In its first incarnation, Seth and Harper never kissed. (I know. I'll wait for you all to compose yourselves after the shock I just laid on you. I wrote something with hardly any kissing. I know. You ready? Let's move on.) But while writing that draft, I developed this major crush on Seth. So I had to rewrite the book, obviously, so that someone could kiss Seth.

It's only reasonable to rewrite your ENTIRE BOOK so your MC can get some, right? Totally normal. Everyone does that, I'm sure.

The song on this playlist that most makes me think of Seth and Harper is Call Me Maybe.

I'm kidding. That song is not on this playlist. (But it's possible that it's on that Songs Megan Sings playlist.)

It's actually Be Your Everything by Boys Like Girls. It's the "I'll be your shelter, I'll be your storm, I'll make you shiver, I'll keep you warm" line that is so VERY, VERY Seth.

Hope you enjoy it!

i am getting an iphone in November and then I intend to shamelessly copy your playlists. It has Alanis on it. It must be amazing. My number one favorite song EVER to sing is "Far Behind" by Candlebox. It brings back all the grunge filled angst of high school. LOVE!!

Bah, I can't listen to your playlist unless I download Spotify. :( BUT this looks awesome! And of course it's logical to rewrite the entire MS to have them kiss. I mean, it's Seth!!

Darn you Spotify! But I love this playlist all the same. I'm so glad to hear someone else has kitchen dance parties too. :) I live for that cover of Umbrella, I like it better than the original.

I actually don't feel bad at all about how long some of my playlists for this turned out, now. XD Also, I love Fireflies with a shameless passion and I don't care who knows it.

I've become increasing amazed by people who have playlists. Last night I was working on my historical to the soundtrack of "Slumdog Millionaire." It made no sense whatsoever as far as the characters and situation, but it was what I felt like writing to! :)

That said, your soundtrack is cool.

Also, I LOVE the story, so it's great to see the musical manifestation of it ;o)
