I’ve had a few people ask if I’m going to be compiling a list of songs that helped to inspire Boy Band. I did this with both Cemetery Tours (https://jackiesmith114.wordpress.com/2013/07/16/soundtrack/) and Between Worlds (https://jackiesmith114.wordpress.com/2014/06/25/between-worlds-soundtrack/). Music is such a huge part of this book and, let’s be honest, it’s primary influence, so I pretty much had to have a soundtrack!
Yes, most of these are boy band songs. What did you expect?
Note: I do not own any of these songs, nor am I profiting from them in any way. They’re just the songs I listened to while I was writing.
1. “Steal My Girl” by One Direction
2. “Empire State of Mind” by Jay Z and Alicia Keys
3. “Because You Live” by Jesse McCartney
4. “Pop” by *NSYNC
5. “What Makes You Different” by the Backstreet Boys
6. “Beautiful Soul” by Jesse McCartney
7. “A Minute Without You” by Hanson
8. “Don’t Let Me Go” by Harry Styles
9. “Tee Shirt” by Birdy
10. “18” by One Direction
11. “Right Where You Want Me” by Jesse McCartney
12. “Umbrella” by Train
13. “Larger Than Life” by the Backstreet Boys
Boy Band will be available April 21, 2015! Please enter to win one of five signed copies on GoodReads!
I didn’t know you liked Empire State of Mind! I’m a HUGE fan. Especially the chorus.
Do you listen to a lot of Jay-Z and Alicia Keys a lot?
I also liked your “y’all” 😀
I actually don’t. I only know that song because my sister sang it at one of her choir shows and I really liked it.
Oh, neat. I bet it’s even better when she sings it with a choir. I like popular music adapted for that 🙂
love it! I may have to listen to some Backstreet Boys, N’SYNC, and LFO today!
Thanks! I listened to them allll day yesterday. 😛
Ooh giveaway! Definitely sharing!
I love to get glimpses like these into a writers mind 🙂
Thanks! I have fun. 😛
