HIDE FROM EVIL Mood Music Day 12: Catching up

I was gone all weekend, and wasn’t able to post from my playlist. ¬†Today, I have selections from The Fray covering Kanye West’s Heartless, Joker and the Thief in the Night by Wolfmother, and 6 Underground by the Sneaker Pimps, which has one of my favorite verses from a song: “Don’t think cause I understand/I care/Don’t think cause I’m talkin’/we’re friends”

It’s not hard for me to imagine Sean saying something like that to Krista when she first reappears in his life ūüôā

HIDE FROM EVIL Mood Music Day 10: Neneh Cherry

If any of you remember Neneh Cherry, it’s probably for her hit from the 80’s, Buffalo Stance. ¬†What did that even mean? Anyway, she made some other amazing music, including MOVE WITH ME. ¬†I just love the chorus:

Move with me

I’m strong enough

To be real in your arms

HIDE FROM EVIL Mood Music Day 9: More AIC

I know, I know, Alice in Chains overkill. ¬†What can I say, Sean is a big fan of vintage grunge. ¬†Today’s song is “Bones,” which contains this refrain:

I feel so alone
Gonna end up a big ole pile a them bones

Suits Sean to a T – at the beginning of the book anyway.

HIDE FROM EVIL Mood Music Day 8: Shawn Colvin

There was a time when Shawn Colvin was on heavy rotation in my car and on my stereo. I hadn’t listened to her in ages but then I found her A FEW SMALL REPAIRS CD as I was cleaning out my car.¬† When I was putting together a playlist for Hide From Evil, I knew I needed to include a few romantic, melancholy, yet edgy songs from this amazing singer songwriter.

Hide From Evil Mood Music Day 4: Nine Inch Nails

In my humble opinion no one is better than producing awesome tortured hero theme songs than Trent Reznor. For that reason Nine Inch Nails is featured heavily on my playlists. Today, I give you THE FRAGILE. (you can skip through the ad at the beginning after a few seconds.)

Mood Music Day 3 – Patty Griffin Covers the Boss

I’ve always been a fan of Bruce Springsteen, and this song about a love that faded away has always been a favorite. ¬†As performed by Patty, it brings a lump to my throat every time. ¬†Especially, the last lines, “I drive by night/And I travel in fear/that in this darkness/I will disappear.

Unfortunately I couldn’t find a complete version of this song online, so along with the clip, here are the lyrics. If you’re looking for something to put you in the mood to write a sad, angsty character, I urge you to get a copy of the song off iTunes.

 

I met a little girl and I settled down

In a little house on out on the edge of town

We got married, swore we’d never part

Then little by little we drifted from eachother’s hearts

At first I thought it was just restlessness

That it’d fade as time went by, and our love would heal

In the end it was something more, I guess

Tore us apart and made us real

 

I’m driving a stolen car

Down on Eldridge Avenue

Each night I wait to get caught

But I never do


She asked if I remembered the letters I wrote

When our love was young and bold

She said last night she read those letters

And they made her feel one hundred years old

 

I’m driving a stolen car

On a pitch black night

And I’m telling myself

It’s gonna be all right

I drive by night

And I travel in fear

That in this darkness

I will disappear
