Eyes of the Blind Soundtrack

No, I couldn’t get Hans Zimmer, John Williams, or Howard Shore to compose a score for me, but I still need music to help fire up the creative juices when I’m working, especially when it’s at soccer practice or the dance studio.

Classical music is, hands down, the best choice when writing, but have you ever wondered what else I listen to? (I know some of you have, because you’ve asked.) I generally look for songs without words, or with words that are ignorable, and are capable of drowning out whatever background noise is going on around me. This leads to a playlist that’s a tad bizarre, but effective.

Some songs drive a particular mood while others end up associated to specific scenes, so I have different playlists for each book. Can you guess which songs match up with different scenes from “Eyes of the Blind“?
