Friday Writing Prompt: Soundtrack for Life

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

Song you sing with others?  Ironic by Alanis Morrisette and probably anything from the 80s
