This Is Not The End

T is for THIS IS NOT THE END by Fieldwork. After seeing the trailer for EDGE OF TOMORROW in theaters for the first time, I came home and immediately looked up this song from that trailer. I guess I wasn't the only one, because the number of views jumped from a couple hundred to tens of thousands within hours, haha. I love me good sci-fi-ish background music and this one was on repeat on my computer for several days.

This is not the end.

Silent All These Years

S is for SILENT ALL THESE YEARS by Tori Amos. If I was stranded on an island and could only bring one music album with me, it would be Tori Amos's LITTLE EARTHQUAKES. This song, in particular, pretty much changed my life as a teenager. Her lyrics (though at many times too dark for my tastes) are pure poetry and I love the raw emotion of her music.

Sometimes I hear my voice, and it's been here silent all these years.

Run

R if for RUN by Jasmine Thompson. She is one of those artists that just blow me away...she's younger than my daughter! Yet her voice and music are both so mature. I see great things for her in the future. And this song resonates for my characters on so many levels. Just perfect.

I will be the one who comes to rescue you.

Happy Easter!

Today is my favorite holiday of the year...I love Easter! I hope yours is filled with family, friends, and the love of the Savior.

Because of Him...

1901

Q is for 1901, the version by Birdy (the original by Phoenix is one of my favs, too). Yes, I'm totally cheating on this letter and sharing a song that has no semblance of the alphabet in the title. It may happen again later this month, lol. I love Birdy. LOVE. Her voice, her covers, her original music. She's even the inspiration behind a character in one of my books. She creates music perfect to write to. I've been listening to Not About Angels on repeat all week. So good.

It's not a miracle we needed.

Primavera

P is for PRIMAVERA by Ludovico Einaudi. I know not everyone likes songs with lyrics when they write, so for those who prefer instrumentals only, Ludovico Einaudi is one of my favorite artists. I even love reading with his music in the background.
