Travis at Trav's Thoughts invites everyone to lay down a short set of music that takes their fancies for his 5 on Friday meme.
In the home stretch.
My debut vampire novel will be going for the final proof read early next week, then to the formatter, and then - voila! I'll be a real live author.
This week I've put together some tracks that would be perfect on a contemporary vampire film soundtrack.
I'm always setting my stories in my own invented worlds, or in Dark Age Britain or Victorian Tasmania, or in other similar time periods.
But if I were ever to write something that took place in the present time, I would include these types of songs to give that extra little creepy feeling. I love it when directors do this. A few examples that I've always loved:
Did You Ever See a Dream Walking? by Bing Crosby - used to chilling effect in 1988's Lady in White
Happy Heart by Andy Williams - casting a taunting shadow over 1994's Shallow Grave
