The Caregiver’s Playlist

Music is an intricate part of my creative process and The Caregiver was one of those stories I couldn’t have possibly written without a good deal of music playing in the background, inadvertently cheering me on, helping me nail the feelings/mood of a certain character, and setting the pace for many scenes. I can’t even think of writing fight scenes without a track playing through my speakers, giving me the beat to set every shot, punch, or stab.

So, here are the YouTube versions of the songs in the playlist for the first book:

The song that started it all: The Postmarks – No One Said That This Would be Easy

(The Casino Royale credits mashup version)

The Guess Who – Undun

The Clash – Death or Glory

The Smiths – The Hand That Rocks the Cradle

The Strokes – New York City Cops

The Clash – Guns of Brixton

The Box Tops – The Letter

The Who – Baba O’Reily

The Jam – Eton Rifles

The Yardbirds – Heart Full of Soul

The Killers – Mr. Brightside

The Zombies – Time of the Season
