Want Guest Post (Blog Tour)

Hello, sorry for (another) late post. The only defence I have is Kendo... But anyway, here's the second part of the Want Blog Tour! You can read my review here if you haven't already. And without further ado, here's a guest post by the author of Want, Stephanie Lawton:


Isaac’s playlist

I hear about so many writers who need to listen to music while writing to get in the groove. I can’t do that. I wind up singing the lyrics or humming along—and staring at a blank page.

However, I compile a playlist for each book and listen to it while I’m not writing—in the car, while cooking dinner, in the shower (TMI? Sorry). I often wake up with one of the songs in my head.

Below is poor Isaac Laroche’s list. The guy’s caught between the proverbial rock and a hard place with no clear solution, and his playlist reflects that struggle, as well as his training in classical piano.

·        “Back Against the Wall” by Cage the Elephant

·        “What I’ve Done” by Linkin Park

·        “Sex on Fire” by Kings of Leon

·        “Save a Prayer” by Duran Duran (it’s an oldie but a goodie)

·        “Undisclosed Desires” by Muse

·        “Add it Up” by Violent Femmes

·        “All the Right Moves” by One Republic

·        “Not Strong Enough” by Apocalyptica (featuring Brent Smith)

·        “Dirty Little Secret” by All American Rejects

·        Etude-Tableau no. 5 in D Minor by Rachmaninoff (Chapters 5 and 9)

·        Moments Musicaux Op.16 - No.4 E Minor Presto by Rachmaninoff (Chapter 7)

·        Morceaux de fantasie, Op. 3 - IV: Polichinelle, Allegro vivace by Rachmaninoff (Chapter 7)

·        Piano Concerto no. 23 in A by Mozart (Chapters 7 and 9)

·        Piano Concerto no. 1 in F# Minor by Rachmaninoff (Chapter 9)

·        Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini XX. Variation 18: Andante cantabile (D flat major) by Rachmaninoff (Chapter 16)
