Where Angels Can’t Follow: The Playlist

I listen to music when I write novels; I need it to tune out the rest of the world. I began Where Angels Can’t Follow a few years ago, but didn’t complete it and get through the editing until this year. So, this playlist is a bit more scattered than usual, but here are the songs that remind me of the world I wrote and the characters in it.

  1. “Mercy” by Muse. (I absolutely could not have finished this book without this song. My local coffee shop had a gaggle of women in it one day, and they were deafening when I’d planned to knock out a chapter. I bought this song, and it became my tune-people-out song for the novel.)
  2. “Little Monster” by Royal Blood.
  3. “I’ll Follow You” by Shinedown.
  4. “Saint Cecilia” by Foo Fighters.
  5. “Unsteady” by X Ambassadors.
  6. “Hurricane” by The Band of Heathens. (This song felt so New Orleans to me.)
  7. “God’s Gonna Cut You Down” by Johnny Cash.
  8. “Viva la Vida” by Coldplay.
  9. “Save Me” by Remy Zero.
  10. “Praying” by Kesha. (This one reminded me of Medusa. That’s all I’m saying.)
  11. “Only Happy When It Rains” by Garbage.
  12. “Trip Switch” by Nothing But Thieves.
  13. “Hallowed Ground” by Bishop Briggs.
  14. “Way Down We Go” by Kaleo.
  15. “My Church” by Maren Morris.  (I could hear Kiah singing this to annoy Grace.)
  16. “Anthem of the Angels” by Breaking Benjamin.
