So many songs have also helped to inspire stories. My stories. And today, I'm going to share some of the music by Canadian artists and bands that provide inspiration for me.
One day, while cleaning the family room, I was listening to my mp3 player, and Spaceman by Bif Naked came on. I plotted out an entire story that morning, pausing in my cleaning to jot down notes. And those notes became ALIEN ADORATION.
Another band I've listened to for years is Econoline Crush. And it was their song Psychotic that I listened to over and over while writing NEVER GONNA SAY GOODBYE, the third book in The Underground dystopian series.
Spirit Indestructible by Nelly Furtado was also a huge inspiration throughout writing all of The Underground series.
What's big on my playlist right now? That would be Crazy for You by Hedley. Doesn't matter what I'm writing, I can't get enough of this song. And as a sidenote, I voted for Jacob Hoggard, the lead singer of Hedley, back when he was on Canadian Idol.
There are so many great Canadian singers, songwriters and bands. Do you have a favorite?
