Mind Behind the Mind ~ Soundtrack

I've mentioned in the past how music inspires me. For the most part, I always listen to specific songs when I'm drafting a novel or short story. Back in 2012, I posted my soundtrack for Dead As Dreams (don't worry, the revisions for that novel are still on my to do list, but it's looking like not until 2018 now - must finish Thorns Entwine the Blade). Well, I realized now that I never posted the soundtrack for Mind Behind the Mind (Trinity Torn, 1)!

I'm about to rectify that problem. ;) Below is the list of songs that I listened to through many drafts of Mind Behind the Mind. And I mean many, since this was my original thesis for my M.A. (Dead As Dreams was my project when I went to get that F to squeeze between the M and the A). Every time one of these songs pops up for me "in the wild" I can't help but think of Tessa and Bastian - especially the first song.

How You Remind Me by Nickelback
Amazed by The Offspring
Cemetery Gates (Demon Knight Edit) by Pantera
Disarm by Smashing Pumpkins
Good Times Gone by Nickelback
If You Could Only See by Tonic
In the End by Linkin Park
Orestes by A Perfect Circle
Outlaw Blues by Pat Benatar
Mountain by Tonic
Outside by Staind
Stay by Shakespear's Sister
Summer Breeze by Type O Negative
The Unforgiven II by Metallica
Where Do I Hide by Nickelback

Are these songs what you expected? What kind of emotions do they invoke in you? Or do you just think my taste in music sucks? Lol.

Anyway, since I'm in the middle of the first draft of Thorns Entwine the Blade (Trinity Torn, 2), I thought it would be great to post the soundtrack for that next week. Maybe you'll even get to see a tiny portion of the cover art, too!

And if you haven't grabbed a copy of Mind Behind the Mind (Trinity Torn, 1) yet, you can find it at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, iBooks, and Google Play. I'm hoping to have Thorns Entwine the Blade (Trinity Torn, 2) released at the beginning of 2018!
