So playlists are the hot thing for books.

Authors post them online, share them on Spotify, and speak on panels about them. I personally don't know how I ever wrote without them, as a playlist allows me to use behavioral conditioning to immediately fall back into the book as soon as I hear the music. All of my playlists can be found on Spotify under DelilahSDawson. And I LOVE it when other Spotify users send me songs that would fit well on a playlist or that remind them of my books!

But what if you had to condense your favorite book down to only one song? And I'm not talking about the lyrics perfectly matching up with the plot or theme; I mean the feeling.


If you're curious, here are all my stories and the songs that represent them, for me:

Wicked as They Come - Magnolia by The Hush Sound

The Mysterious Madam Morpho - Smoke and Mirrors by Gotye

The Peculiar Pets of Miss Pleasance - Mowgli's Road by Marina and the Diamonds

The Three Lives of Lydia (Carniepunk anthology) - Like Cockatoos by The Cure

Wicked as She Wants - Listen to your Love by MONA / It's Amazing by Jem

The Damsel and the Daggerman - Give It Back by Sixpence None the Richer

Wicked After Midnight - The Stars Came Out When the Lights Went Out by The Veils


Shadowman: Follow Me Boy - 99 Problems by Hugo

Uncharming (Big Bad 2 anthology) - She Wants to Know by Half Moon Run

Servants of the Storm - God's Children by The Gutter Twins

Delinquent - Take Me Alive by Chris Cornell
