What Would Violet Listen To???

I was recently asked what songs my main character, Violet Ambrose, listens to on her iPod. So, I decided to take this opportunity to put together a playlist of Violet's songs. Mind you, these are not my songs, otherwise it would be filled with such gems as ABBA, Beyonce, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Lily Allen, and even a little David Archuleta (yeah...I went there!). 

Side Note (and commentary about my random taste in music): My husband couldn't find his iPod one day and had to take mine to the gym. When he came home, he just shook his head and said: "You hate me, don't you?" Okay, enough about my disco-era/teen idol pop collection, here's just a sampling of what you might find on Violet's playlist:

Brandi Carlile  The Story

Kings of Leon  Closer

Lily Allen  Who'd Have Known

The Fray  Unsaid

Paramore   Fences

Fiona Apple  Criminal

Anberlin   Paperthin Hymn

Iron & Wine  Boy With A Coin

Panic! At The Disco  When The Day Met The Night

Fiona Apple  I Know



Fine, the Lily Allen song might be because I love her. But, in my defense, she really is awesome!!!

So now it’s your turn, what songs would you put on Violet’s iPod?

Lots of Paramore for sure, plus some Metric, 30 Second to Mars, Kings of Leon, some Maroon 5,and maybe some Plain White T's. Oh and some old school Journey, REO Speedwagon, and Queen because those songs remind her of her parents. :0)

I love this playlist! I have a few of those on my ipod which I will definitely be listening to more now that I know they're on Violet's! ;)

I think you have good mix here, I have one on my writing playlist that I think would be GREAT for Violet because it's called Burial...LOL It's by Miike Snow, and I think it would mesh with her playlist really well! :)

Thanks for sharing your music!
