Feel free to tell us a little about why you picked the soundtrack for said character, the tracklist, and post a link to a youtube playlist containing your book’s soundtrack!

Like this:

Book Title: Dolijute
Character: Blondie/Jürgen
The first song is the book’s inspiration, a traditional Lithuanian folk piece. Everything else is in no particular order and somewhat all over the place, but I really wanted to keep sort of a viking feel with a little bit of bollywood thrown in. I would say I’d place Grimes in both his and the other main character’s playlists, particularly her song “Oblivion” because of the subject matter it deals with. The calmer tracks were harder to find for him, as I usually write his scenes while listening to high bpm and extremely danceable music.

It’s late and I probably didn’t do that, but I made an example, nonetheless and that’s what matters!

  1. Gyvata - Dolijuta
  2. Kraddy - Android Porn
  3. Heerkule$ Beat$ - Viking
  4. Fever Ray - If I Had A Heart
  5. Grimes - Oblivion
  6. The Glitch Mob - Warrior Concerto
  7. Omiki - Balkan
  8. Sparobeatz - ALI BABA
  9. Rachel Grimes - Bloodroot
  10. Nicolas Jaar - Mi Mujer

Book title: Saving Him (not published on wattpad yet)

Character: Woohyun Chun

The first song is about missing someone (or in this case, a guy) who died. The singer (aka character) misses him and grieves because he died and left her all alone. She is willingly to go to to hell and back just to get him back so she can be with him once more. The song pretty much describes a tragic ending to their relationship and how much the girl misses him.

  1. Missing You - 1st Lady
  2. i hate u, i love u - Olivia O’Brien
  3. Skinny Love - Birdy
  4. I Fall Apart - Post Malone
  5. When I Look At You - Miley Cyrus
  6. Talking To The Moon - Bruno Mars
  7. The Climb - Stan Walker
  8. Halo - Beyonce
  9. Find You - Stan Walker feat. Maisey Rika

Unfortunately, I don’t have a playlist for these songs on Youtube, but on Spotify, I do. Just search my name ‘Dyana Muraahi Vaipo’ and you should see ‘SAVING HIM | novel’. I only featured ten songs on here because I really have a long list and it would take me ages on writing the whole soundtrack :laughing:

hope you like this :slight_smile:

This seems super fun! I have literally over 300 playlists on my phone, most of them for stories/characters, so this forum is right up my alley!

I’ll post Zidane’s playlist:

  1. My Heartstrings Come Undone - Demon Hunter
  2. Second Chance - Shinedown
  3. Confession (What’s Inside My Head) - RED
  4. Can You Feel My Heart - Bring Me the Horizon
  5. What I’ve Done - Linkin Park
  6. The Reason - Hoobastank
  7. You - Breaking Benjamin
  8. Proud of You - 10 Years
  9. I Will Fail You - Demon Hunter
  10. I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For - U2

Quick summary: Zidane is all about guilt and regret, as well as changing his mixed blood so he isn’t so… deformed. He has multiple but subtle disabilities due to his Spiro and Razalek blood–a huge one being that he can’t reproduce with his girlfriend, who means everything to him given their past together. At the age of five, he witnessed his mother’s brutal death (windchime through the head) and was teleported to the human area, where he nearly starved to death. A fellow Spiro picked up him and beat the anger into him. Thieving with fiery hatred inside, he comes across an orphanage, where he meets a human girl named Zooka. Through calm comfort, she eventually unlocks the peace waiting inside him, for this he is eternally grateful.

Did I mention they’re timeless soulmates? Been saving one another lifetime after lifetime, dimension after dimension.

Playlist here!

Is it okay to do more than one playlist? Such a fun topic! :two_hearts:

I literally have so many playlists so this is perfect!

Book title: At First Dawn (it’s up on my profile!)

Character: Cosmin Navsa

  1. Help - Hurts
  2. Nothing left to say - Imagine Dragons
  3. The Bells - Indian Lakes
  4. Forest Fire - Brighton
  5. Cupid - Taylor Phelan
  6. Can you hold me - NF
  7. Please don’t leave quite yet - Adam Agin
  8. When the darkness comes - Colbie Cailat
  9. Alive - Van Hof
  10. How it ends - Beth Crowley
  11. Burning House - EZA
  12. Everything is lost - Maggie Eckford
  13. Safe and Sound - Taylor Swift

The first song is the song I would commonly describe as Cosmins “theme song” and the rest just relate to his character!
Without giving too much away Cosmin was separated from his mother and brother when he was about thirteen and now has to spend all his time alone and swordfighting in a typically medieval world. He suffers a lot because he falls for a guy and is still only 17, and spends a lot of time trying to accept a lot of stuff about himself all at once while also battling a quest

It’s on youtube if you type in Cosmin Navsa :slight_smile:

Really interesting cover of Burning House!

This song really relates to what will happen to my character. She’s not a child, but she’s certainly seen as one.

Oh love this idea!

My playlist for Poesy…

Blitzkreig Bop - The Ramones
Don’t speak- No Doubt
Earth- Sleeping at Last
I love you- Beat Happening
Trap Queen- Fetty Wap
Sea of Love- Cat Power
This is the thing- Fink
Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa- Vampire Weekend
Every Little Thing she does is magic- The Police
Cupid- Sam Cooke

Plus a bunch more but these speak to me most for her story. :yum:

Story: Connie Supernatural Friend

Character: Connie May

Daughter of Darkness- Halestorm

Paint it Black- The Rolling Stone

Here’s To Us- Halestorm

Dream On- Aerosmith

Zombie- The Cranberries

Cold-blooded- The Pretty Reckless

Highway to Hell- AC/DC

Immigrant song- Led Zepplin

The first song represents her relationship with her monster(literally) roommates/friends. Half of the songs are her favorite ones that she makes covers or inspire me to create the passion that a guitarist goes to achieve their goal. Also, in the most song is the ‘theme’ of her adventures that Connie shares with her roommate.

Zombie is an amazing song; I’m listening to it now, actually.

In Search of Jericho

Character - Special Agent Luke Huxley

Danger Zone - Kenny Loggins (Top Gun Soundtrack for the cultured)
Start Me Up - The Rolling Stones
The Reflex - Duran Duran
Piano Man - Billy Joel
Sledgehammer - Peter Gabriel
Living on a Prayer - Bon Jovi
Somebody Else - The 1975

All of these songs have something or other to do with reliance on someone else. Once Huxley has to step up to the plate, it’s a different world for both him and his trustee.

character: Arkenham

  1. Lithium - Nirvana
  2. Fake It - Seether
  3. Self-Esteem - The Offspring
  4. Black Hole Sun - Soundgarden
  5. Crazy Train - Ozzy Osbourne
  6. Paranoid - Black Sabbath
  7. Basket Case - Green Day
  8. Lounge Act - Nirvana

Yes, there is a lot of Nirvana. I am aware of that. In story he’s a big fan of Nirvana, so it makes sense. I might do some for other characters later.
