Wednesday Words – Sing It!

As most of you know, I’m big on soundtracks to set the mood when I’m writing. I’ve been known to hear a song and immediately come up with a story idea. This would be the case with the currently-under-revisions COWGIRLS DON’T CRY. (Look for the song by Brooks and Dunn 😉 )

I’ll catch a song used in a TV show and the lyrics will grab me and won’t let go until I track them down. This is true of the following lyrics and songs.

From FLASHPOINT (a show I’m really sorry ended–about a SWAT team in Vancouver), the song START AGAIN by Illiyun.

And those mistakes you made don’t make you half a man.
There is weakness where there’s pride.
A broken heart don’t mean a broken girl within.
It’s not a sin to start again.

Trust me, that song and the image the chorus burned in my imagination will definitely make an appearance in a future Penumbra book. I think I know which one, but I’m not going to say. *bwahaha*

And a song that always reminds me of Hannah and Mac–in fact, it reminds me of all the Wolves when they find their mates. From IF I DIDN”T HAVE YOU by Thompson Square:

You are my heart, every breath I breathe.
I’m safe in your arms, you rescue me.
When I’m weak, you’re strong.
If you were gone I don’t know where I’d be.
You were made for me
(You were made for me)

And finally, one of my favorite songs and is perfect for all the Barron brothers and their cowgirls – Blake Shelton’s MINE WOULD BE YOU.

Happy Hump Day! May you have a song in your heart today–and if you do, share it here! 😀

  1. I have American Authors “Best Day of my Life” stuck in my head this morning. “I’m never gonna look back… whoa.. I’m never gonna give it up… whoa…” =o)

    Great songs this morning, Silver. I don’t know that I’ve found inspiration for my writing in songs, but they certainly do help set the mood.

  2. I love using songs as inspiration. Lyrics can jog a scene right into my head. Much like you. Haha…Mine would be you, just came on Pandora. 🙂 Love Blake.

    *hugs* for running back and forth taking care of LG. I know it’s gotta be hard. You are awesome.

    I’ve been listening to the Wicked soundtrack a good bit lately. I’m seeing again next month, so that might be one of the reasons. 😉
