Sometimes, a simple song, sung from the heart, is more powerful than a symphony. In my novel, one song traces a path through the story, leading the way into my guitar hero’s soul. Since I don’t play guitar, much less write songs, I relied on other artists to provide the inspiration, and imagine the song as an amalgamation of something I’ve heard. The name of the song is ‘Toujours’ and this is the playlist of the songs that inspired it.
To the artists who wrote and performed these: Thank you-your music transports and sustains me.
