Playlist for ANEW!

Monday, January 16, 2012
Hi guys!

Below is a playlist of songs that inspired me while writing Anew. Music plays such a crucial part in the development and creativity of my stories and I wanted to share my inspiration with you guys!

That being said, do any of YOU have song suggestions for Anew? I heard from a reader the other day (thank you, Belle!) about a song that she associates with Scarlet and Tristan and, after listening to it (and getting goosebumps because it was AWESOME), I totally added it to my playlist!

So, I wanted to open up the playlist idea to all my fan-freakin'-tastic readers to see if there are any amazing songs out there that you guys think are perfect for Anew! Comment your ideas below or, if you'd rather, you can email me:

Here is my playlist (the short version...because the long version is, like, 59 songs) but if you want the long list, you can click HERE.

RUNNING UP THAT HILL by Placebo (Chapter 2 - Introduction to Tristan)
YELLOW by Coldplay (Chapter 11 - Gabriel & Scarlet's picnic)
RUSTED WHEEL by Silversun Pickups (Chapter 14 - Tristan shooting arrows)
SO EASILY by Kathryn Calder (Chapter 27 - Tristan & Scarlet sit in the woods)  *I'm lame and couldn't figure out how to add this song to the list but you can listen to it HERE
CLOSER by Kings of Leon (Chapter 29 - Tristan meets Maniac in the alley)
LIGHTS by Ellie Goulding (Chapters 44-48 - After Tristan saves Scarlet)
HEARTBEAT by Enrique Iglesias, ft. Nicole Scherzinger (Chapter 53 - Pancakes)
LOOK AFTER YOU by The Fray (Chapter 59 - Gabriel sees Scarlet's stomach)
WOLF & I by Oh Land (Chapter 68 - Scarlet realizes what the design is)
LOST IN PARADISE by Evanescence (Chapter 73 - Scarlet confronts Tristan)
NO LIGHT, NO LIGHT by Florence + The Machine (Final Chapters)

    Okay, I just finished Anew and LOVED it! I loved Sophie and Carter too.. Where have these books been all my life?! I am really excited for your future books :)
    P.S. I imagine Ryan Sypek as Gabriel, he's adorable. If this book ever turns into a movie...look him up! haha

  1. Chelsea Fine said...:

    Haha! :) Ryan Sypek! Good idea! He's the guy from the show Wildfire, right? He's soooo cute! :) I will definitely have to put him down on my "dream cast" list for the Anew movie! :) Thank you for reading my book--that means so much to me! :)

    This book is amazing and this playlist is so organized!   Thanks, Chelsea.  I've never read a book set to its own music before.

    I love writing with music playing in the background. Ironically, though, I never thought about assigning certain songs to what I write. It's made me think about what songs apply to what story though. GL with the tour, Chelsea. I look forward to reading your book.

    Thanks, Nancy! I loved putting the playlist together. It made the scenes...real or something, ya know? Thanks for stopping by my blog! Your copy of ANEW is on the way! :)

    Hey! Omygosh I love your books! I cant wait for awry to come out! I just have some suggestions for your playlist. For the scene where scarlet meets tristion and scarlet's friend meets tristion, "starry eyed". By: Ellie goulding. For the scene where scarlet confronts tristion in his room the song " Running up that hill" should play. For when tristion is setting up the arrow and standing in front of it they should play, "closer". For the last chapters play" look after you". That's it thanks!!!!
