I am a total sucker for a good love song and I searched through every love song I could think of, trying to find just the perfect songs for the scenes in my books.  You might notice that a lot of them are from the 80s, because I am a total 80s music freak.

 

Unfortunately I couldn't use all of these great songs or the story would have ended up being one huge song-fic.  Some of the songs I didn't use in the books were perfect for other scenes though.

 

Below is a list of songs and the scenes I would have put them in if they were episodes on TV.

Everlasting Love
by U2


This song would play in Book 10 when Max and Liz talk in the car about their future and discover the connection between them.

Hearts gone astray
Keeping up when they go
I went away
Just when you needed me so
You won't regret
I'll come back begging you
Don't you forget
Welcome love we once knew
Yeah

Open up your eyes
Then you'll realize
Here I said was my
Everlasting love

Need you by my side
Come and be my pride
You'll never be denied
Everlasting love

From the very start
Open up your heart
Feel the love you've got
Everlasting love

This love will last forever
This love will last forever

Hearts gone astray
Keeping up when they go
I went away
Just when you needed me so
You won't regret
I'll come back begging you
Don't you forget
Welcome love we once knew
Yeah...

When life really flows
No one really knows
The sun will have to show them
Everlasting love

Like the sun it shines
Endlessly it shines
You always will be mine
Eternal love

Whatever love went wrong
Ours would still be strong
We'd have our own
Everlasting love

This love will last forever
This love will last forever

Open up your eyes
Then you'll realize
Here I said was my
Everlasting love

Need you by my side
Come and be my pride
Never be denied
Everlasting love

From the very start
Open up your heart
Feel the love you've got
Everlasting love

Fortress Around Your Heart
by Sting


This song would play in Book 10 when Max and Liz are at the University of Las Cruses talking about their relationship.

Under the ruins of a walled city
Crumbling towers and beams of yellow light
No flags of truce, no cries of pity
The siege guns had been pounding all through the night
It took a day to build the city
We walked through its streets in the afternoon
As I returned across the field's I'd known
I recognized the walls that I once made
I had to stop in my tracks for fear
Of walking on the mines I'd laid

And if I built this fortress around your heart
Encircled you in trenches and barbed wire
Then let me build a bridge
For I cannot fill the chasm
And let me set the battlements on fire

Then I went off to fight some battle
That I'd invented inside my head
Away so long for years and years
You probably thought or even wished that I was dead
While the armies are all sleeping
Beneath the tattered flag we'd made
I had to stop in my track for fear
Of walking on the mines I'd laid

And if I built this fortress around your heart
Encircled you in trenches and barbed wire
Then let me build a bridge
For I cannot fill the chasm
And let me set the battlements on fire

This prison has now become your home
A sentence you seem prepared to pay
It took a day to build the city
We walked through its streets in the afternoon
As I returned across the fields where I'd once played
I had to stop in my tracks for fear
Of walking on the mines I'd laid

And if I built this fortress around your heart
Encircled you in trenches and barbed wire
Then let me build a bridge
For I cannot fill the chasm
And let me set the battlements on fire

Enjoy the Silence
by Depeche Mode


This song would play in Book 10 when Max and Liz are at the movies.

words like violence
break the silence
come crashing in
into my little world

painful to me
pierce right through me
can't you understand
oh my little girl

all i ever wanted
all i ever needed
is here in my arms
words are very unnecessary
they can only do harm

vows are spoken
to be broken
feelings are intense
words are trivial

pleasures remain
so does the pain
words are meaningless
and forgettable

all i ever wanted
all i ever needed
is here in my arms
words are very unnecessary
they can only do harm

all i ever wanted
all i ever needed
is here in my arms
words are very unnecessary
they can only do harm

all i ever wanted
all i ever needed
is here in my arms
words are very unnecessary
they can only do harm

Behind Blue Eyes
by Limp Bizkit


This song would play in Book 10 when Tess is thinking about what might have been with Kyle

No one knows what it's like
To be the bad man
To be the sad man
Behind blue eyes
And no one knows
What it's like to be hated
To be fated to telling only lies

But my dreams they aren't as empty
As my conscience seems to be
I have hours, only lonely
My love is vengeance
That's never free

No one knows what its like
To feel these feelings
Like i do, and i blame you!
No one bites back as hard
On their anger
None of my pain and woe
Can show through

Discover l.i.m.p. say it [x4]

No one knows what its like
To be mistreated, to be defeated
Behind blue eyes
No one knows how to say
That they're sorry and don't worry
I'm not telling lies

No one knows what its like
To be the bad man, to be the sad man
Behind blue eyes.

enjoy the silence

Yellow
by Coldplay


This song would play in Book 10 when Max and Liz are stargazing in the desert and Liz asks about Max's son.

Look at the stars
look how they shine for you
And everything you do
Yeah, they were all yellow

I came along
I wrote a song for you
And all the things you do
And it was called yellow

So then I took my turn
Oh what a thing to have done
And it was all yellow

Your skin, oh yeah your skin and bones
Turn into something beautiful
D'you know?
You know I love you so
You know I love you so

I swam across; I jumped across for you
Oh what a thing to do
'Cos you were all yellow

I drew a line; I drew a line for you
Oh what a thing to do
And it was all yellow

And your skin, oh yeah your skin and bones
Turn into something beautiful
D'you know?
For you I bleed myself dry
For you I bleed myself dry

It's true
Look how they shine for you
Look how they shine for you
Look how they shine for you
Look how they shine for you
Look how they shine for you
Look how they shine

Look at the stars
Look how they shine for you
And all the things that you do

Crazy for You
by Madonna


This song would play in book 10 when Isabel and Hale are dancing at the Homecoming dance.

Swaying room as the music starts
Strangers making the most of the dark
Two by two their bodies become one

I see you through the smoky air
Can't you feel the weight of my stare
You're so close but still a world away

What i'm dying to say is that
I'm crazy for you
Touch me once and you'll know it's true
I've never wanted anyone like this
It's all brand new
You'll feel it in my kiss

I'm crazy for you
Crazy for you


Trying hard to control my heart
I walk over to where you are
Eye to eye we need no words at all

Slowly we begin to move
Every breath i'm deeper into you
Soon we two are standing still in time

If you read my mind you'll see
I'm crazy for you
Touch me once and you'll know it's true
Iv'e never wanted anyone like this
It's all brand new
You'll feel it in my kiss because

I'm crazy for you
Touch me once and you'll know it's true
Iv'e never wanted anyone like this
It's all brand new
You'll feel it in my kiss because

I'm crazy for you
Crazy for you

Crazy for you

It's all brand new
I'm crazy for you

And you know it's true
i'm crazy crazy for you

It's all brand new
I'm crazy for you

And you know it's true
Ya i'm crazy foryou

Crazy for you baby

I'm crazy for you
I'm crazy for you baby

Only You
by The Platters


This song would play in Book 10 at the Evan's Halloween party when Max first sees Liz.

Only you can make this world seem right
Only you can make the darkness bright
Only you and you alone
can thrill me like you do
and fill my heart with love for only you

Only you can make this change in me
for it's true, you are my destiny
When you hold my hand
understand the magic that you do

You're my dream come true
my one and only you

Only you can make this change in me
for it's true, you are my destiny
When you hold my hand
I understand the magic that you do

You're my dream come true
my one and only you
One and only you

Bliss
by Muse


This song would play in Book 10 when Max shows Liz his memory of first seeing her

Everything about you is how I wanna be
Your freedom comes naturally
Everything about you resonates happiness
Now I won't settle for less

Give me all the peace and joy in your mind

Everything about you pains my envying
Your soul can't hate anything
Everything about you is so easy to love
They're watching you from above

Give me all the peace and joy in your mind
I want the peace and joy in your mind
Give me the peace and joy in your mind

Everything about you resonates happiness
Now I won't settle for less

Give me all the peace and joy in your mind
I want the peace and joy in your mind
Give me the peace and joy in your mind

Annie's Song
by John Denver

(I'm definitely not a John Denver fan but I love the lyrics of this song)

This song would play in Book 10 when Amy & Jim get married.

You fill up my senses
Like a night in the forest
Like the mountains in springtime
Like a walk in the rain
Like a storm in the desert
Like a sleepy blue ocean
You fill up my senses
Come fill me again

Come let me love you
Let me give my life to you
Let me drown in your laughter
Let me die in your arms
Let me lay down beside you
Let me always be with you
Come let me love you
Come love me again

Let me give my life to you
Come let me love you
Come love me again

You fill up my senses
Like a night in the forest
Like the mountains in springtime
Like a walk in the rain
Like a storm in the desert
Like a sleepy blue ocean
You fill up my senses
Come fill me again

I Feel You
by Depeche Mode


This song would play in Book 10 when Max and Liz discover their connection after making love

I feel you
Your sun it shines
I feel you
Within my mind

You take me there
You take me where
The kingdom comes
You take me to
And lead me through
Babylon

This is the morning of our love
It's just the dawning of our love

I feel you
Your heart it sings
I feel you
The joy it brings

Where heaven waits
Those golden gates
And back again
You take me to
And lead me through oblivion
This is the morning of our love
It's just the dawning of our love

I feel you
Your precious soul
And I am whole
I feel you
Your rising sun
My kingdom comes
I feel you
Each move you make
I feel you
Each breath you take

Where angels sing
And spread their wings
My love's on high
You take me home
To glory's throne
By and by
This is the morning of our love
It's just the dawning of our love

I Swear
by All-4-1


This song would play in book 10 when Max proposes to Liz

I swear by the moon and the stars in the sky
And I swear like the shadow that's by your side

I see the questions in your eyes
I know what's weighing on your mind
You can be sure I know my heart

`Coz I'll stand beside you through the years
You'll only cry those happy tears
And though I make mistakes
I'll never break your heart

And I swear, by the moon and the stars in the sky
I'll be there
I swear, like a shadow that's by your side
I'll be there

For better or worse, till death do us part
I'll love you with every beat of my heart
And I swear

I'll give you every thing I can
I'll build your dreams with these two hands
We'll hang some memories on the walls

And when just the two of us are there
You won't have to ask if I still care
`Coz as the time turns the page, my love won't age at all

And I swear by the moon and the stars in the sky
I swear (and I swear) like the shadow that's by your side
I'll be there

For better or worse, till death do us part
I'll love you with every beat of my heart
And I swear

I swear (I swear) by the moon and stars in the sky
I'll be there
I swear like the shadow that's by your side
I'll be there

For better or worse, till death do us part
I'll love you with every (single) beat of my heart
I swear, I swear,
Oh... I ... swear
