Music Playlist for Declan & Ally

Thought I would share a selection of tunes I’ve been humming and typing along to whilst imagining the soundtrack to Declan and Ally’s relationship…

(You can probably tell from this list I enjoy an eclectic mix of old and new… :))

  • Almost Lover ~ A Fine Frenzy    (in fact the whole album One Cell in the Sea has been perpetually playing whilst writing this novel)
  • Someone Like You ~ Adele    (perfect song-ification of lost love)
  • Green Eyes, Fix You ~ Coldplay    (both for obvious reasons!)
  • Skinny Love ~ Birdy    (holding on to what may never be…)
  • Jar of Hearts ~ Christina Perri    (for the icy mood it evokes)
  • (It’s Hard) Letting You Go ~ Bon Jovi    (a lesser known BJ tune)
  • In a Little While, North Star, All I Want Is You, Kite and The Joshua Tree album ~ U2    (who am I kidding – everything U2 fits 🙂 )
  • Time After Time ~ Cyndi Lauper    (an all time favourite, grew up listening to this)
  • Wake Me Up ~ Ed Sheeran    (modern day romantic)
  • Beneath Your Beautiful ~ Labrinth featuring Emile Sande    (if you’ll let me see…)
  • Where I Stood ~ Missy Higgins    (two loves for one heart…)
  • Run, Signal Fire ~ Snow Patrol    (again, atmospheric!)
  • Stay ~ Shakespear’s Sister    (oldie but goodie that captures the essence of the finale)
  • Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover ~ Sophie B. Hawkins (another oldie but goodie! Who didn’t love this song in the 90s?!)
  • I Go to Sleep ~ Sia    (to sleep, perchance to dream…)
