poplitealqueen  asked:

Do you have any particular songs or playlists that you associate with Hunger Pangs?

I do actually. For whatever reason, Kongos Come With Me Now  works really well for what Hunger Pangs feels like in my head as a general whole.

Some lines will make it really evident as to why.

Also the Steampunk Opera Overture by Paul Shapera is delightfully dark and whimsical and makes me think what a Hunger Pangs audio book intro would sound like. It’s like a music box plunging into hell with the clockwork ballerina still spinning. I love it. 

There is also Meg Myers, Desire which is much darker and just has a really sleek seedy undertone to the whole thing which I just adore and it just feeds so well into the idea of longing and hunger (as well as a few other themes). I also just love the official music video is just wonderfully dark and weird. 

I’ve written numerous scenes for the erotica version while listening to this.

Myers also has another song out called Heart Heart Head which is just this visceral scream into the void, literally. I’d already written a scene I had in mind for a particular character (in book 2) when I first heard this, and it made the hair on the back of my neck stand on end with how well it matched. 

It was fucking eerie and has me partially convinced Myers and myself are hooked up to the same hive mind of “what the actual fuck”.

Other songs that have been on loop while I’m writing this have been,  Hozier - Arsonist’s Lullaby.

(For what it’s worth, in my head this is Vlad’s song)

and Florence and the Machine's Bedroom Hymns was another that got looped a lot.

Actually, now that I look at my youtube playlist, I have a fuckton, and should actually just make it into a public playlist. Cause tumblr is about to have a fit if I put any more links in.

But I’ll also say that Florence and the Machine’s Too Much Is Never Enough is also the other song that runs in my head along with Kongos for what Hunger Pangs feels like in my head. So I’ll leave you with that.

Another Heart CallsAll American Rejects

Do you remember when we didn’t care?
We were just two kids that took the moment when it was there
Do you remember you at all?
Another heart calls

Yeah, I remember when we stole the night
We’d lie awake but dreaming ‘til the sun would wash the sky
Just as soon as I’d see you, but didn’t I, but didn’t I tell you?
As deep as I need you, you wanna leave it all

What can I do? Say it’s true
Or everything that matters breaks in two
Say it’s true
I’ll never ask for anyone but you

Talk to me, I’m throwing myself in front of you
This could be the last mistake that I would ever wanna do
Yeah, all I ever do is give, it’s time you see my point of view

Just as soon as I’d see you, but didn’t I, but didn’t I tell you?
As deep as I need you, you wanna leave it all

What can I do? Say it’s true
Or everything that matters breaks in two
Say it’s true
I’ll never ask for anyone but you

But I know what you want is to figure it out
And god knows I do too
What can I do? Say it’s true
I’ll never ask for anyone but you

I’m sorry, so what!
But you don’t think I’ve said enough
I’m sorry, I don’t care!
You were never there

Just as soon as I see you but didn’t I, but didn’t I tell you?
As deep as I need you, you wanna leave it all

What can I do? Say it’s true
Or everything that matters breaks in two
Say it’s true
I’ll never ask for anyone but you

I know what you want is to figure it out
And god knows I do too
Yeah, what can I do? Say it’s true
I’ll never ask for anyone but you

I’ll never ask for anyone but you
