The song of the book...

Current work: in vacanza

Amazing how you can get to the end of a book, thinking you know the soundtrack, and then discover a different ‘song of the book’ right at the end. At the beginning, I thought the song was was Athlete’s ‘Chances’. Halfway through, I realised it was Mama Cass (unless my ed makes me cut the scene, this is the song my hero’s listening to at the gym when he realises that he loves the heroine, and almost falls off the treadmill).

And then, for some reason. I had Michael Bublé running through my head. Great song, great video. And (until the hero realises that the heroine is indeed The One) this is what he thinks for most of the book…

Add in Vivaldi (the double cello concerto gets a mention, especially for Nancy), and that’s the music of the book :o)

Note to ed: Don't you dare cut the treadmill scene. :)
Now I shall have to switch on iPod and have a listen to Chances...

Ooh, I love hearing about people's "song of the book!" and checking out the playlist! I'm just starting a new ms and wondering what the song is going to be...

LOL, glad you all like the sound of the treadmill :o)

Still awaiting ed's verdict, but I predict big slash and burn. (Am not being pessimistic: this is based on lovely Dot's reaction.) C'est la vie. (I should've written that in Italian but... too tired to think!)
