  6. Make Your Own Kind of Music – Cass Elliot (The Secrets of Truth & Beauty, by Megan Frazer)
  7. Mario Kart Love Song – Sam Hart (The Geek Girl’s Guide to Cheerleading, by Charity Tahmaseb and Darcy Vance)
  8. Time Turned Fragile – Motion City Soundtrack (Break, by Hannah Moskovitz)

And between now and the 15th, you can win one of these playlists–all for a comment. So, hurry on over.

I’m pretty psyched Geek Girl is on both playlists. I think Mario Kart Love Song must be Darcy’s contribution (either that, or I was contributing in another dimension–cuz I don’t remember suggesting that song).

The Reason by Hoobastank is my contribution, and it’s the song I associated with Geek Girl’s Guide. Well, that and it’s fun to say Hoobastank. Go on. Try it.

Anyway, Geek Girl never had a full playlist. There’s a few songs that I when I hear them, I’ll think of Geek Girl, but The Reason is the song. Every time it came on the radio, I’d take that as a good omen: it meant: I should write/revise/query and so on.

So … enjoy. And be sure to enter Jordyn’s contest.

  1. Since I knew all of ONE song on any of the lists (Taylor Swift’s, in case you wondered), I had to listen to “The Reason”. Liked the song, but not so much the video — it didn’t really seem to go with the words. Even so, cool words, cool song.

    I need to expand my horizons more 😀

  2. It seems weird to me that you didn’t have a playlist for Geek Girls, given that I’m now playlist hooked based on your playlists. I mean, for writing.

    I can totally see this as the Geek Girl theme song, though. It really has the vibe of Geek Girl’s Guide to me, though.

      It is a little weird, because I at least had music for books before it. Although for India Charlie it was the entire Joshua Tree album. I’m not sure you can count that as a playlist.
