Music Playlist...for a Book? Why not?

Ever hear a song and it reminded you of something you've read? Every once in a while that happens to me, and apparently to the beta readers who test-read my book a few months ago! The betas have been sending me names and links to songs that remind them of Will and Julia, or the story and we're getting quite a list together. I mentioned a few songs in the book, others came to us listening to the radio or our ipod, or watching a TV show. Someone suggested I create a Soundcloud stream to accompany the book...I'm sorry, what the heck is Soundcloud? But what a great idea! A book with a soundtrack! Since I'm Soundcloud inept, I added YouTube links for each song that reminded me or a beta of the book. Do you have any to add? Use the comment box below!
