This Week's Tune (11/6)

Hello, again!

Once more, I found myself torn between two excellent music choices--so rather than agonize over the decision, I chose both. As the tune(s) for this week, I present to you "Sun Shine on Me" by Buddy Stuart, and "Pick Yourself Up" by Nat King Cole, from my Breaking Bad playlist. (Usual copyrights apply; I own nothing!)

Like the playlist suggests, I first came across these songs while watching the show, and wasted no time adding them and the others from the show I considered the best to a playlist. Though I eventually soured a little on the show as a whole, the acting and most of the storylines were still top-notch, and the music was particularly well-chosen. These two songs in particular have stuck with me, for both their lyrics and mood, despite coming from totally opposite settings (one jaunty, one grim :) ). Together with the songs I picked from Goodfellas (which you'll be seeing here soon!) this list has become the primary music played during the work on my Neo-Mafia thriller series (the last book of which is my current NaNoWriMo project). They've given me encouragement to stay the course when I thought I would never be able to start writing in such a genre, let alone write a whole series, and are equally good for a nostalgic or admiring laugh in between projects. Listen, like, comment and share!
