THE LOST SAINT Soundtrack: Song 5

12/2/2010

So before I share song 5, I have a picture to share with you. THEY CAME!!! THEY CAME!!! My author copies of THE LOST SAINT arrived today!


Unfortunately this picture totally doesn't do the book justice. Seriously. They are so beautiful and I am beside myself to see the finished product in my hands. *pets the copy in my hands gently.*

Ok, now that I'm done squealing for the evening, it's time to share the 5th addition to the TLS soundtrack. As mentioned last night, song 4 represents a specific event in the book. This next song is for the events immediately following that song. It is from one of my favorite bands (who occupy the first 2 slots on the TDD soundtrack as well) and an extremely beautiful song. The words, the emotion, the tone... you'll see what I mean once you listen to it. I think it really captures the idea of feeling paralyzed or helpless when faced with daunting circumstances. (Something everyone can relate to at some point in their lives... for example, right now, as I look over at the sink full of dishes, I'm feeling a bit paralyzed by the thought of having to do them. Of course, Grace's circumstances are little more dire than an overflowing sink.)

So, with that, I give you song 5: "Consequence" by The Notwist.


P.S. In case haven't been to the blog in a few days, this is all part of the Countdown to THE LOST SAINT Contest, as explained here.

Nicole said...

I have this band on my itunes but I've never actually really listened to them (the problem of having too many songs) but I'm really liking it.

Bwyatt said...

Beautiful song! A little haunting if you know what I mean.

Jessy said...

I like this song! I think you might really like the band called The XX. It's very mellow like this.

Danielle Nguyen said...

From Push! One of my favorite movies ever! Great song.

Rudi May Hart said...

I love the covers for your books they are eye catching with the striking colour on the black background and white legs. I also like how unique the idea is only seeing from the hips downwards it gives you the chance keep your own image of Grace. Please keep writing I really enjoy your work.

Ana Lucia said...

ooh TLS is so beautiful...I love the covers of your books. And the song is great aswell!

Tanya said...

I love the cover, it's gorgeous!! You have picked music that I have never heard before. I likey!!

Valerie said...

The cover is beautiful! Can't wait to read it.

The song seems more mellow than the others. I hope that means there will be some mellow happy times in the book!

Minas said...

Cannot see the video either. But as always I'm listening in youtube. I was not expecting it, but is good. Not as good as Reindeer and baby reindeer, but almost as good. Btw Bree, I saw your same cover only in this purple color in Meg cabot's blog. i can't remember of which of her books, apparently for the Brazilian cover. But it was for either the 1800 series or the mediator.

I've been listening to The Notwist since I was in high school (I have since graduated college) and I remember this song as being one of my favorites. Thanks for reminding me why =)

Jess (The Cozy Reader) said...

Now this one is nice. I can see me listening to this. And maybe listening to it over and over again while being reminded of the book! :) I love it when a song reminds me of a book.

I'm definitely a fan of slower songs.
