Muse Music: Sex & Candy–Maroon 5

So, after much pussyfooting around, I have FINALLY dived in my new wip.

(YES, the one that is due in to my editor in another month. ¬†NO, I don’t need your judgement ūüôā

So, as things tend to go, I pulled out my trusty playlist to me channel¬†my characters and bring some soul to the plot. ¬†First song that rolled up what Maroon 5’s take on Marcy Playground’s “Sex and Candy”.

Something about the slow, soulful sexiness Adam brings to the table makes this the PERFECT fit for my hero.  So much so this is now his personal theme song.

 

Muse Inspiration: David Bowie, RIP

“I don’t know where I’m going from here, but I promise it won’t be boring”
~David Bowie

I wasn’t planning on doing a Muse Music post today, but I woke up to the news that David Bowie passed away last night. ¬†While not the huge-est David Bowie fan, I did enjoy his music– Let’s Dance, Fame, and Golden Years being my 3 fav songs by him– his courage to pursue his own lane, and, of course, Labyrinth!

I was going to feature this song later in the year, but decided to move it up in the schedule a bit. So here’s another of my fav songs, “Under Pressure” by Queen, featuring David Bowie.

Muse Music: Lesson Learned

No one is immune to life’s sting. And not all masks are easily detectable. ¬†It’s okay to feel the pain, but there is absolutely no¬†point in wallowing. Just get it done and look forward to the next corner, the next sunrise, and the next mountain peak. Because¬†surely, it is coming.

I have several, very important projects to wrap up in the next few weeks. ¬†With so much going on in¬†the “real world” lately, I began to lose sight of a few things. ¬†But my friends, along with¬†Ms. Alicia and John, have helped bring a bit of perspective.

Hell, what is life without a little pain? ¬†If you don’t experience the bad, how will you appreciate and cherish the good?

He broke my heart
And now it’s raining
Just to rub it in
I’m at your door
I feel so crazy about it
You’ll say I told you so
You saw it long ago
You knew he had to go
I finally came ’round
I’m back on solid ground
Can’t let it get me down

Muse Music: Crush

It’s been ¬†while since I’ve been here. I know, I know…there’s no excuses. ¬†But I have been busy with some writing projects I have in the pipeline and busy living and enjoying life :-). This is the year I celebrate by 40th, so it’s been my goal to ensure that I enjoy myself this year.

But like I said, not an excuse to take such a leave of absence. ¬†So in an effort to return to the business of actually running my website, I’ve decided to ease back into things with a fresh new Muse Music entry.

I attended my first Dave Mathews Band concert a couple of weeks back, so of course this means DMB is heavily on my mind. ¬†Now, I don’t claim to be the biggest DMB fan in the world, but they produce good music and I enjoy the few songs I know. ¬†During the second set, they played Crush. OMG, this was my first time hearing it and, needless to say, it struck a cord and I fell in love. This song is PERFECT for my next WIP, a full length romance I worked on for¬†a couple of month before I had to leave it for my current project. Seeing as I’m on a break from project #1 as I wait to hear back from my editor, this little gem has inspired me to tinker around with the full length wip a little bit.

Enjoy!
