With the new WIP approaching due to the beginning of NaNo around the corner, I've decided for this WIP to make it its own super special soundtrack. A task made easier now that I've succumbed to the siren song that is iTunes.
Since the new novel -
(which I've temporarily titled Glimpse of Another Shore - which is kinda cool because it's from a sea poem, but also ridiculously melodramatic. But for now it stays because if you want a chance to be picked for one of the 30 Days 30 Covers NaNo competition (where graphic artists pick a NaNo WIP and create a cover for it based on the synopsis) you have to have a title and a synopsis entered)
- is a sea novel, and everyone lives on little islands and makes their livings off the sea and there's sea serpents and a Navy and my MC and his siblings are all named after sea aspects, I think the soundtrack needs to be as seaworthy as possible.
I'm sure I'll throw Enya's Caribbean Blue on there. I'll also probably include Dethklok's Into the Water and maaaaaybe Murmaider (which is about mermaid murder and is as awesomely metal as it sounds)
(BTW - I've added a playlist below, in case you want to check out any of the songs I mentioned)
Also I'll for sure add Fair to Midland's Tall Tales Taste Like Sour Grapes since it has kind of a sea sound (and I lurrrrves it) and maybe I'll throw in Dance of the Manatees, not because it sounds like the sea, but because it has manatees in the title.
I HOPE I could find an iTunes version of this: (he filmed this during xmas, which explains the hat and tree)
OMG, isn't that just EPIC AND AWESOME?! My favorite parts are at about 1:30 and 1:45. I should probably actually just look for the Windwaker theme on iTunes and see what I can find
Anyway, this is where you come in bloggy pals - I am looking for recommendations and suggestions for songs which remind you of the sea and/or the water.
I'll check them out on iTunes and then add the ones I like to my playlist.
Hopefully this will be awesome.
Anyone else making a specific playlist for a new project/NaNo?
