Countdown Continues with TLS Soundtrack: Song 4

12/1/2010

Holy crap, it's December!!!! The Countdown Timer says it's only 26 days 3 1/2 hours left until it is officially December 28th here in Utah. And to top it off, I've just watched a preview of the new THE LOST SAINT book trailer that I will hopefully get to debut this weekend, and I literally squealed with excitement!! (Sorry. Too many exclamation marks. I'll tone it down.)

*Takes a few deep breaths--attempts to regain composure* Lets talk more about music, shall we?

Song 4 on THE LOST SAINT soundtrack is "AFK" by Pinback. As I've said before, these songs are more than just a playlist to go along with the book. Not only are a lot of them personal favorites, and songs that helped inspire me, they are also arranged in an order that helps reflect the growing mood and emotion of the story as it progresses. In that way, they almost become the score for the book... the soundtrack (which is why I call it that).

I wanted to explain that again because this next song is all about mood. After the event that song 3 represents, tension and action begin to build in the story. The things that are happening leave the characters with a growing sense of anxiety, fear, regret and even a little bit of anger. One of the things I like about this song is it's about something bigger than yourself moving forward and not being able to stop it. This song also represents a specific event that takes place. Unfortunately, I can't tell you much about that event because I don't want to get all spoilery.

Ok, so now that I've done all the explaining, take a listen and let me know what you think for your next entry in the countdown contest.

I like that you are giving the songs in order. It helps get a better feel for the book. I'm not gonna lie this song makes me anxious about what's to come. It has that vibe.

Hm, I liked parts of this one, and other parts not so much. Good overall, I think. When I first saw the band name I thought it said AFI and I got all excited 'cause I really like them( they have this awesome song called 'Prelude 12/21' and I was thinking about how cool it'd be if you chose that one to put on your soundtrack). Then I realized it said something else and I just laughed at myself. :P

Now that I've heard this song, I want to know the specific event that it represents. At least TLS is only 23 days and 6+ hours away.

I've heard this before!

Valerie said...

Less than a month. Wow!

Taffy said...

It's interesting how some songs hit us and some do nothing for us.
I can't decided on this one.

Sam said...

Not too sure how I feel about this one. It makes me antsy to read the book, though... the order of the songs ins intriguing. Please let the last one be a happy one...

Never heard Pinback before, but I'm kinda loving them! Going to make my roommate look them up on Youtube...

It's interesting playing the songs back-to-back. There's a definite feeling/theme running through all the songs so far. It's making me excited for TLS. :)
