My Possessed by Passion Playlist

Whenever I write, I usually always have music playing in the background. It's usually some sort of mellow instrumental piece that plays. but I do have some music that serves as an inspiration for my words. For The Hollow-Eyed Girl, which is part of the Possessed By Passion Box Set, I chose 5 songs as the official playlist. Listed below are the songs and the reason why I chose them.

  1. Hath No Form by Drab Majesty - This instrumental piece is what I would choose as the song that best fits everything I wrote. The track starts off as a nice little tune, but it soon begins to warp and glitch, turning into something else entirely. That is generally how my stories tend to go. Listen here -

  2. Burn by The Cure - In The Hollow-Eyed Girl, one of the main characters. Sean, is a goth kid who listens to The Cure on a regular basis. He is modeled, to a certain extent, after my son, name and all. Listen here -

  3. Dead Trust by Hocico - There are some lyrics in here that relate in a little way to the story, but the main reason for this selection is that you never really know who to trust in the book. It's a bit of a creepy whoddunit, so I think this track fits the bill. You can listen here -

  4. Eyes of a Stranger by The Payolas - While the book is not set in that time, I wanted something from the 80's. The main creeper in the story wears a hood, where only the eyes are ever on show. Listen here -

  5. Never Surrender by Combichrist - The main character in this story is Kayleigh, who is named after my daughter. In the book, she is a bit of a stubborn hard-ass who will do whatever it takes to win the game. This is her song. Listen here -

That is my five songs. I'd love to hear what you think. If you want to get your hands on the Possessed by Passion Box Set, which has 21 books for just 99 cents, you can get it by CLICKING HERE!!
