The External Book Soundtrack: Tricksters

This is a *squee* let's share music post.

Tricksters is my book about Trickster Gods, masks, and the end of the world, and dark wonderful Alan Cummings inspired Cupid.. Yes Tricksters needs a new awesome working title, but its is easy to remember. 

First up what could be the trailer/opening music if Tricksters was a t.v. series. Don't tell me you can't see trickster gods doing any of this.

Next is this song. The other possible book trailer music. Although it's pretty upbeat, it has that right irreverence that the trickster gods have.

Next up is the external plot driven song for my main character who WON'T give her name. Not yet, apparently.

Cupid's theme song. Yeah. (I blame BBC's Blackpool with David Tennant DANCING to this song as the awful inspiration) 

When my MC gets mad and finally does something, she does it with style. A theme song for a fun chapter of vengeance.

Next up, the softer more emotional scenes best of the playlist type thing.

You're writing a book about trickster gods? AWESOME. They're so much fun to read about!

I've never been a fan of Elvis' music, but all those other songs are great! I especially like the songs from Gin and Florence and the Machine. (You're right, "Kiss with a Fist" is a perfect theme song for tricksters!)

Looking forward to seeing more songs from this playlist. :)

Isn't Kiss with Fist just awesome for Trickster Gods?
I was so excited when that thought hit me.

Trickster gods, interesting!

I love Florence, so of course I'm liking your first track. And AC/DC rocks as well, so it wasn't hard to sell me there. I hadn't heard this Gin song before, but I really liked it. I'm a huge fan of piano heavy music. Didn't love The Smiths song, but the Elvis one, awesome.

Elvis and the Smiths are very strange choices, especially for me.
They are the only songs I have by either of them as well.
Florence is *my band* apparently. I've never had one before.

*My Band*

As in, you love every song and they totally represent who you are?

If that's what you mean than I know what you're saying. There have only ever been a handful of bands like that for me.
