Shelf Life: Soundtrack

soundtrack_web-700I had some music playing while I was writing the other week and a song came on and I thought that song perfectly sums up my books. Then I got to thinking, people talk about the soundtrack to their lives, then there must be a soundtrack to my books. So I wasted entirely too much time going through my iTunes and came up with a top 10 that embodies my books. Of course, my initial list exceeded ten songs, so I do have some honorable mentions: Awolnation: “Burn it Down”, Reeve Carney, Bono & the Edge: “Rise Above 1”, Otis Taylor: “Nasty Letter”, Shinedown: “Second Chance”, Duran Duran: “Come Undone”, Mud Honey: “My Little Toy Gun”, Fitz & The Tantrams: “Moneygrabber”, The O Jays: “Back Stabbers.” But here’s the songs that made it to the top 10:

#10 Beck: “Farewell Ride”
#9 Tricky: “Hell Is Around The Corner”
#8 Portishead: “Sour Times”
#7 Social Distortion: “Machine Gun Blues”
#6 Everything But The Girl: “Walking Wounded”
#5 Neil Finn: “Sinner”
#4 Soft Cell: “Tainted Love”
#3: Sneaker Pimp: “Post Modern Sleeze”
#2: The Eagles: “Life In The Fast Lane”
#1: Cage The Elephant: “Ain’t No Rest For The Wicked”Ain’t No Rest… is the song that sent me on this wild goose chase. Watch the video and you’ll understand why! Enjoy. 🙂
