A playlist is one of the first things I put together when I dive into a story. I look for key words in the titles and then for artists I know who write songs that resonate with me. My son said to me one time, “Mom, do you have any songs that aren’t angsty?”. Uh, probably not. I mean I have love songs of course but I really love a song that makes me laugh or cry or turns me on!
I hope you enjoy this list.
