Words & Music Monday with Yasmine Galenorn


Hi all!! Today we’re celebrating something I’m looking forward to, and also dreading. The end of Yasmine Galenorn’s Indigo Court series. I love this series and the characters SO much… and TOMORROW, it will end with NIGHT’S END. This is our stop on the blog tour for the book, and I’m thrilled to have one last round of songs from the series to share. (And a little sumthin-sumthin for you to WIN at the bottom!)



ygAs Jennifer knows, I have long playlists for each of my books, and yes—I do end up with theme songs for some of the characters. I also usually have a theme song for each series.


For the Indigo Court Series, that theme song has always been Half-Light, by Low. It was the theme for the Mothman Prophecies. I first saw the movie right when I was starting to write the series and the moment I heard the song at the end, I knew that’s the energy that Cicely’s world embodied.

So, when Jennifer asked me about theme songs for the characters, I was happy to make out a list of them. Here are the songs that—for me—best embodies the energy of the characters as they inhabit my thoughts. You’ll notice some of my characters have more than one song:

Cicely: Butterfly by Crazy Town; While You’re Sleeping, I’m Dreaming by Tamaryn; Social Enemies by Orgy; Souljacker Part 1 by the Eels

Rhiannon: Atlanta by Stone Temple Pilots; Don’t Play With Guns by the Black Angels

Cicely & Rhiannon together: Queens Will Play by Black Mountain.

Lannan: Meet the Wolf by A Pale Horse Named Death; Sex on Legs by Lord of the Lost

Grieve: Play With Fire by Cobra Verde

Cicely & Grieve together: Beautiful Stranger by Madonna

Chatter: Violet’s in a Pool by Tamaryn

Luna: Pride by Syntax; Bring on the Wonder by Susan Enan

Peyton: Beautiful Being (Original Edit) by Eastern Sun

Kaylin: Bittersweet Symphony by the Verve

Myst: Ich Will by Rammstein

Leo: Hands on Us by The Notwist

So tell me, when you read my work, do you ever listen to the songs off my playlists? If my books are on your TBR list, which of these songs gives you the best feel for the character? Each person who answers in the comments will be entered to win an AUDIO copy of the first book in the Indigo Court series, NIGHT MYST. Contest will run from now until the end of the blog tour on July 5th. Jennifer will choose at random and notify one winner by email on July 6th.

    Though I have listened to some of the songs on the play lists you provide with each book, I have to admit that I don’t listen to them while reading, I get too swept up in the stories, especially good ones, to listen while reading, but I love the Cicely and Grieve song, Beautiful Stranger by Madonna.

    I don’t have access to a radio or anything at the moment, so I haven’t heard of these songs, but I write them down and one day I’ll get to listen to them. Thanks for sharing the songs, Night’s End and the giveaway.
