On My Mind by Ellie Goulding. My sister reminded me that I like this song a lot!! Especially that chorus; it sounds exactly like something stuck in your head, repeating over and over again.
Open Your Eyes by Bea Miller. This song helped me discover Bea Miller! I saw this video after googling a book series and it was it’s official video. Very beautiful song!! ❤
Oyosute Aina from Wolf Children. Another glorious soundtrack piece!! A steady ticking like a clock keeps tempo as the piano enthusiastically, yet gently, trickles up and down the scale. A soft guitar and intriguing vocals join in, creating a warm, gentle ambiance. It nearly conjures the images of summer and wafting curtains in the kitchen. At moments the song is almost loud with excitement before mellowing out again. To me, this track’s emotion, or sound, is hope. The tension of hope, the joy of hope, the peace in hope. and the expectation of hope. All in all, it’s a truly peaceful track.
Ori, Lost in the Storm from Ori and the Blind Forest. This is a recent find of mine and it is PURE MAGIC. PURE. MAGIC. PURE MAGIC. JUST LISTEN TO IT. IT’S PURE MAGIC, YOU GOT IT?!?!?!? Those VOCALS.
Ocean Princess by Thomas Bergersen. I actually forgot to share this on the first go around, but I have to include this song because it’s a LONG time favorite. Written many book scenes to it. It’s a true piece that captures “epic” especially those last 50 seconds that the song builds up. I GET CHILLS EVER DANG TIME.
Our Song by Taylor Swift. This was my favorite song of Taylor’s for a very long time and it’s still a pet favorite. Just ugh, nostalgia in this tune. I don’t even generally care for country, but wow, I’ve just always loved this song!
One Reason from Deadman Wonderland. I just freaking love this song. The anger and longing in the chorus actually clicked with a zombie novel I wanted to write when I heard it. So I listened to this on repeat during many writing sessions. It’s just rough and loud and almost animalistic. Tell me you don’t see a zombie survival story when you hear that song? I have a lot of heartstrings tied to this song just for those reasons.
