For most of us, music is a quintessential part of life. Most of us have certain songs that trigger certain feelings, remind us of certain people or events. For today’s writing prompt, I’m going to list a series of questions about the songs or albums that define your (or your character’s) life. Remember, if you’re writing fiction, knowing silly little details like this can help you define your character and make him or her more rich and real.
Favorite childhood song? We’re Off to See the Wizard
Song that you always have to sing along to? You Oughta Know by Alanis Morissette or Bitch by Meredith Brooks
Song you’re most likely to spontaneously burst into? Wild World by Cat Stevens
Favorite song as a teenager? Hey Jude by the Beatles
Song that reminds you of your first love? It’s More than a Feeling by Boston
Song that you listen to when you’re sad? Tomorrow by Avril Lavigne
Song that makes you happy? Paperback Writer by the Beatles
Song that reminds of you of an ex (and not in a good way)? I Alone by Live
Song that reminds you of someone you love? Thank You by Dido
