TLS Soundtrack: Song 2 & Countdown Contest Entry Opportunity

11/29/2010

I hope you enjoyed the first song in the TLS soundtrack. And from many of the comments, its seems as though you did. The Postal Service has long been a favorite band of mine and an inspiration for a lot of my writing. Ben Gibbard is an extremely talented poet and musician (Death Cab also rates among my favorites). Zooey Deschanel is definitely one lucky woman.

Tonight I'm sharing a relatively new favorite, which also happens to be track 2 on the soundtrack: The Temper Trap's "Sweet Disposition." To me this song really encapsulates that perfect moment that happens between two people in love, which is where the first chapter begins. The semi-eerie feel also helps allude to what is about to happen that changes everything.




Don't forget this is also part of the final Countdown to THE LOST SAINT Contest. Comment and let me know what you think of the song to get another entry in the Kindle give-away. Tomorrow, I'll post track 3 for your listening pleasure.

I love this song...great picks for music!!!

KM said...

I've loved "Sweet Disposition" since it was in the movie "(500) Days of Summer." Great movie. Great song. Unfortunately, I'm not a huge fan of any other Temper Trap song, so they're a one-hit wonder for me.

Bree Biesinger Despain said...

Yeah, I first heard this song when I saw 500 Days of Summer--which was when I was just starting to write TLS, so it kind of stuck with me.

Loving the flow of the book sound track so far!

AliceCullen said...

If I'm perfectly honest, I'm no so sure I liked this song. At first I was like, eh, not horrible, but I dunno if I'll even finish it. But then I let it play on and it wasn't so bad. Still think I like the first one better though.

I've never heard this song before, but it certainly has that falling in love feel to it. I'll have to look more into The Temper Trap to hear their other stuff.

I really like the way her voice flows with the guitar... It's not common, but it works. And now I really want to know what you meant by saying it alludes to what's going to happen. Gah!
