Guest Post - The Soundtrack of our lives by Casea Major
I was asked once would you rather become blind or deaf. It's or horrible thought either way, but in that moment I knew I really didn't want to live without music.
I don't know about you, but music is an integral part of my life. I mark life-changing events by the songs that were popular on the radio. My first date, prom, wedding, births of my children, even the deaths of people close to me are marked in my memory with song.
All it takes is for a particular tune to play on the radio and my memory immediately transports me. More than any other sense—except maybe smell—hearing can take me to another time and place.
So is it any wonder that I get my chief inspiration from music. There are times when a song captures my attention and a whole story forms in my mind.
All my stories have extensive playlists. Generally, the songs I select capture an emotion I want to convey in a particular character or scene.
Here are my three current releases and the theme song for each couple.
Night with a Dom – Moves Like Jaggar, by Maroon 5
One Knight in Brooklyn – Tomorrow, by Chris Young
Pinocchio Syndrome – Kiss A Girl, Keith Urban
So tell me – What songs inspire you?
