Unclear Purposes Playlist #WIPWednesday

Hey, everyone. For today’s WIP Wednesday, I’ll share the third and final playlist for the Driscoll Lake Series. For this one, I began selecting songs while still brainstorming the plot. I shared in a post a few months ago, where Lyin’ Eyes inspired the storyline. (You can click here if you’d like to read that post.)

Two or three of these songs are mentioned by name in the book. There’s a scene near the end where Brian’s band plays Tom Petty’s “Refuge” at a local club.

As with the first two books, romance plays a role.

They sat in silence for a while, watching the flames dance in the fireplace. Even with the awkward moment earlier, Christine felt safe. Content. She could get used to this.

“Think you’ll ever marry again?” Vince’s voice was so low she almost didn’t hear him. Even so, she wasn’t sure she’d understood.

“What did you say?”

“Probably shouldn’t have been so blunt. I tend to say what’s on my mind.”

“I don’t have a problem with someone being frank, but your question caught me off guard.”

“Why? You’re an attractive woman. It’s been a while since Kyle’s death.”

“Guess I haven’t thought a lot about it. I’ve only been out on a few dates.”

“Easily changed. I’d like to make sure it does.”

She offered a tentative smile. “You don’t mince words, do you?”

“Everything that has happened the last few weeks has made me realize how short life can be. If someone has a chance at happiness, they should grab onto it and not let go.”

“Someone recently reminded me of that.”

“So, what do you think? Interested?”

Christine smiled. “I’m more than interested.”

And now for the playlist.

  • One of These Nights – The Eagles
  • I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For – U2
  • Lyin’ Eyes – The Eagles
  • Let’s Live for Today – The Grass Roots
  • The Last Worthless Evening – Don Henley
  • Fortunate Son – Creedence Clearwater Revival
  • Shame on The Moon – Bob Segar
  • We Have No Secrets – Carly Simon
  • Refugee – Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers
  • Someone to Lay Down Beside Me – Linda Ronstadt
  • I’m In You – Peter Frampton

So there you have it. Will I create a soundtrack for future works? I’m already thinking about which ones I’ll use.

  1. Great selection, Joan, with my all-time favorite band (The Eagles) featured. Loved Tom Petty, too.

    I can’t work with any sound around me at all, not even music. It pulls me right out of what I’m doing. So my only play list are my chapter titles in The Emissary series, and those are fun to figure out, based on what each chapter contains. But I enjoy seeing what inspires other writers. Fun post! 🙂 ❤
