Songs That Describe Your Characters

music

#1

Music is really important to me in life in general, so I always love making soundtracks for my books.

Below, name your book, a character (or several), and name a song and the artist that suits them! If you want, you can elaborate on why you chose what you did :blush:

In my WIP, the song Sunflower by Post Malone and Swae Lee from the Spiderverse soundtrack really fits my protagonist Willow. It captures her energy and really speaks to the way she views others and the world.

I can’t wait to see the songs for your works! :smile:

Title: Knights of Lore

Characters/songs:
Kaden Nadirè - Way up by Jaden smith/ Goku by Jaden Smith. These songs match his energy and the “hero of justice” mentality he has. He’s always ready for action.

Kariah-Belle Nadirè - Ninety by Jaden Smith/ Romans revenge by Nicki Minaj/ High hopes by panic at the disco. Ninety is a song I feel catches her emotional side, especially in the melody. Romans revenge is a song that shows her energy and go-getter mentality. She has talent and a dream she is determined to make a reality. Even when she knows she gets the short end of the stick covered in mud she tries her best to stay optimistic.

Rygilya Semtech - Riot by three days grace/ you’re going down by sick puppies. Riot because rygilya is aiming to bring down the ruling power of a large organization and if he succeeds humanity will be left without a head. You’re going down because he plans on killing his former best friend, Kaden.

Aya Felicity - Have faith in me by a day to remember/ paint it black by BiSH/I hate everything about you by Three days grace. The first two songs because she made a promise to Kaden to never let the dark power he has take over his body even if she has to kill him. She wants to be a light when he is surrounded by darkness. The last song relates to her feelings for her father who killed her mom in front of her and went rogue.

Iris Eloclipes - One of the drunks by panic at the disco/ king of the clouds by panic at the disco/ sugar we’re going down by fall out boy/let’s be alone together by fall out boy. These songs match how she looks for ways to ease the guilt she feels.
