Music to wake up to!!!!!!!!

Working open to close, 6 days a week for the last few weeks is kicking my ass. I’m up at 5 every morning to take the kid to work (he will be getting a car soon…damn I hope!) come back get the twins up for school -which generally takes 30 minutes with some whining and complaining by one of them before we get out the door. Back home to do a load of laundry, clean and get ready to come to work.

This isn’t meant as a complaint in any way. I’m very grateful for what I’ve worked for and have. I’m usually good for a while and then I wake up and want nothing more than to disappear by myself for a weekend in the sun and the beach complete with a hot cabana dude who provides a little eye candy ( and no I’m not wanting him in the carnal sense….just something nice to look at….LOL)

Since that isn’t happening, I go to my playlists and find something loud and fun to listen to.

My picks for today are:

Life is a Highway

I love that song. Many, many years ago I listened to it over and over again. My friends and I would belt it out when it came on the radio. It was a feel good song. There have been several songs like that. I don’t think I will ever get enough music in my life.

I’m learning that bad memories will fade – if you let them. Instead I concentrate on all the good memories I have about people, places & things. What I used to go to as inspiration, I’m using again. Concentrating on all the wonderful things and using that as my muse. When you try to put the shit things in life behind you, it makes room in your heart and soul for all the good ones. As each day passes, I’ve learned to throw out the bad, negative & hurtful things I’ve done or that may have been done to me. Appreciate every good moment I’ve ever had. And without trying to sound arrogant, I know what my greatest strengths are in all areas of my life and will strive to remember them when I get stressed or hormonal…lol.

I’ve sat with my laptop and have begun just that. Using all the good, the muses who helped fuel my fire and writing without apologies and will continue to do so, probably forever. Yes, forgetting the bad helps, but remembering the sweet is doing infinitely more for me then anything else I’ve tried. At this point in my life,  I’m no longer curbing my thoughts & feelings because they are MINE and mine alone. I no longer say the words Never and Forever in my life because nothing is guaranteed -nothing and I don’t want to make a liar out of myself.

Now on to the music…

80’s Throwback

Going with the 80’s music today. I was a teenager, in high school and loving life.

 

Music and Eye Candy

 

I’m so ready for spring! I hate being cooped up in the house. There’s nothing better when you’re feeling blah then a hot man and good music. Enjoy!

Tuesday Tunes

I love my satellite radio and Pandora. No flipping endlessly through channels, trying to avoid stupid commercials that I’m not interested.

I’m over my pop phase. Honestly if I heard Stay With Me or the one about loving until the dude was 70, I was going to vomit. I enjoyed the sappy stuff at 16 when I had my first brush with love. Thank someone upstairs that I’m over that shit.

Since I love writing urban fantasy and paranormal, pretty little fluff music is the last thing I can listen to. It’s hard to have your H/H killing the bad guys with Taylor Swift talking about Blank Space.

I’ve recently discovered Lzzy Hale and Halestorm. Love…love…love the band. No offense to those who enjoy the lighter side of music but it’s not me. SO I thought I’d introduce some of you to who I’m listening to…and honestly sex with this music blaring in the background is soooo much hotter….

 

 

 

 

 

Music Mondays

I’m feeling a little melancholy today. My song selections will attest to that…lol. But I’ve learned you have to feel what you feel. Acknowledge it and for me I have to put it away until the next time.

This first one, I never listen to at all. When it comes on the radio, I quickly turn it off. It was played to me by someone a couple of months before they destroyed my world. It’s not something I go and look for, but you know how it goes. Once in a while things pop up in your head and you need to let shit out.

 

 

Sound Track for my new novel.

I haven’t made a specific soundtrack for any books since 2008. I always listen to music but back then I had certain artists/albums that were playing in the background, especially for The Worthington’s. Going through my music I found an album that spoke to me and to the story I’m working on. Kane and Josie are the protagonists in my new w.i.p. So I thought I’d share some of the songs from the cd title Amarylis. Scene after scene popped into my mind every time I listen to it.

These particular songs fit my characters as they deal with loss, mistrust, dark pasts and finally falling for each other.
