ramble: book soundtrack

Books ought to come with soundtracks! I don't like to write without music, so I wish I could include the same instant atmosphere for the reader. I've been messing about with this soundtrack for my WIP for a while now.* The order of the songs roughly follows the order of events. Gives an interesting impression of the story.** It's also a useful yet fun way to examine plotting, pacing, and emotional arcs. (Links are to youtube.)

* It is now very long. Think of it like a double album. Or triple.
** And also illustrates the fact that I love pseudo-historical movies that include modern music in their scores (see: Marie Antoinette; Moulin RougeA Knight's Tale).
