  • Music:

we'll stick our fingers in the ground; heave and turn the world around

I'm a more than usually aural person. No musical talent to speak of myself, but I have a pretty good ear, and both of my parents are musicians--stwish, in fact, is a pretty damned fine banjo player. (if you can't handle the words "damned fine banjo player" in a sentence, you might as well walk away now).

Anyway, one thing I've noticed is that every book has a song.

I've written fourteen complete novels so far. As of today, conveniently.

And you know, every one has a song.

1. All the Windwracked Stars: Jackson Browne - The Barricades of Heaven / Dar Williams - After All
2. The Sea thy Mistress: Big Country - Eiledon / Leonard Cohen - Here it Is
3. By the Mountain Bound: Bruce Cockburn - Pacing the Cage
4. Hammered: Tom Cochrane - Life is a Highway
5. Blood & Iron: Steeleye Span - Tam Lin
6. Scardown: The Incredible String Band - Dear Old Battlefield
7. The Cobbler's Boy: Pat Benetar - Outlaw Blues
8. The Stratford Man: Tragedies: Carl Orff - O Fortuna (Techno remix) / Jann Arden - Could I be Your Girl?
9. The Stratford Man: Comedies: Peter Mulvey - The Trouble with Poets
10. Worldwiredi: Tom Waits - Earth Died Screaming
11. One-Eyed Jack: John Gorka - All That Hammering / Jeffrey Foucalt - Secretariat / ZZ Top - Viva Las Vegas
12. A Companion to Wolves: Jethro Tull - Broadsword
13. Whiskey & Water: Emmylou Harris - Deeper Well / John Hiatt - Cry Love
14. Carnival: Vienna Teng - Gravity / Emmylou Harris - The Pearl / Ian Anderson - Panama Freighter

or two.

You know, I have damned weird taste in music.
